Street Pastors in Salisbury
One of Salisbury's Street Pastors is joined by Salisbury Mayor John Collier on a Saturday night shift. The team of Street Pastors walk the street and check the welfare of night-clubbers and general public during the small hours.

Jobs starting at 10.30 on a Saturday night rarely flick my happiness switch but this one was great. I was taking a series of photographs for a feature in the Christmas edition of Wiltshire Life and although the main photographs were taken well past my bedtime it was a real eye-opener to the work they do.

For the the work the Street Pastors do along with other community initiatives the mayor has made www.wscf.or.uk his chosen charity for the Mayoral year.
