Street Pastors

It is now just over ten years since our Street Pastor Team began working in what was then a notorious
area for anti-social behaviour along the Hollins Road corridor. Of those original members Amanda Lane, Carol Shepherdson and Linda Kendrick are still actively involved. Since those early days we have grown into two teams, one based in South Chadderton and the other in Failsworth. We currently have 17 members and we manage to be out three or four Friday nights per month in Chadderton and two Saturdays in Failsworth.
