Belper Street Angels has carried out its first trial of a new 11pm -3am lateshift and is seeking new recruits to help make it a permanent feature.
The project, launched eight months ago, has seen teams of volunteers patrolling the town centre and estates between 8-12 each Friday evening.
In the longer-term, the plan is to launch two regular weekly shifts, an early evening shift focused on the estates and a late night shift focused on the town centre.
For the next few months, however, the project team plan to alternate between the two until enough new volunteers are recruited.
Said project co-ordinator Rachel Marszalek: “It’s continuing to be a chilly winter but the Angels are unperturbed and we are asking if you can help us in our attempts to attract new recruits to the project before a commissioning of the next wave of angels begins in June.”
