Street pastors with Flick Drummond MP

Meon Valley MP Flick Drummond has revealed how she saw “several police officers out on the beat” while out in a neighbouring constituency.

Mrs Drummond sent out a press release about how she spent an evening with Winchester’s Street Pastors learning about the work they do to keep people safe at nighttime.

The pastors have been patrolling Winchester city centre since 2011 providing reassurance and guidance to people out late at night from 10pm-3am.

“Lots of the bars were packed and lots of young people were enjoying the warm evening as we walked around,” said Flick.

“We gave out food and lollipops and loads of people seemed to know about the lollipops. It was also good to see several police officers were out on the beat.

“A massive thank you to Graham Simpson and his team for looking after me, I am afraid I chickened out at 12.30 as I had a busy day but I am full of admiration for everything they are doing.”

Graham said: “We go and talk to people and make sure they get home safely we’re listening and so if anyone’s got a problem and they’re concerned or they’re concerned about something in life they can stop and have a chat.”
