Daytime patrols for Street Chaplains in Hanley

Street Chaplains are out patrolling in Hanley in the daytime for the first time.

It follows complaints about anti-social behaviour, street drinking and rough sleepers in the city centre.

A number of volunteers have been patrolling Longton town centre after a public space protection order (PSPO) was put in place.

The street chaplains have mainly operated at night in Hanley and Newcastle, where the volunteers would help clubbers and listen to their problems.

There is more information on the scheme, and contact details for anyone wanting to be involved here.
