Street pastors play vital role

Have your say

THE article on page 12 of last week’s Herald covered the ‘end of term’ party for Carolyn Heaps as Mayor of Eastbourne.

I have been privileged to meet Carolyn on several occasions and know she has been an outstanding Mayor for the town.

It is a measure of her commitment to the community that one of her first actions will be to swap her chains of office for her Street Pastors uniform.

I know from my own experience that the work of Street Pastors and the many other organisations that operate during the early hours at weekends is invaluable in reducing crime and increasing safety for the many party goers that come to Sussex each week.

This in turn helps to improve the prosperity of our resorts.

Thank you Carolyn for your hard work over the last two years and keep up the good work patrolling the streets of Eastbourne.
