    Ormskirk’s new School Pastors – the first in Lancashire – took their first steps this week as they started to ‘patrol’ Ormskirk.

    Seven of the 20 volunteers are pictured on Thursday afternoon at the top of Church Street before starting a patrol in the town centre; some of them might be familiar faces as Street Pastors, who patrol Ormskirk town centre each weekend, but for all 20 School Pastors it’s a brand new experience as they seek to ensure pupils of all ages have safe journeys home during term times.

    An inspirational commissioning service was held at Ormskirk Parish Church on Monday evening as Les Isaac, founder of Street Pastors and Ascension Trust, encouraged the new team in its work. Among the congregation was Mayor Gaynar Owen and West Lancs Police Chief Inspector, Ian Jones.

    Ormskirk School and St. Bede’s fully support the initiative and year 6 pupils from ‘feeder’ schools all heard about the School Pastors work in special assemblies in Ormskirk and Aughton at the end of last term.

    Dave Mutch who leads up the team said: “Ithasbeen very encouraging to get such positive feedback from both secondary schools and great to meet the pupils on the street.”

    All the team have undergone a full training program including Safeguarding and they are all DBS cleared.

    Funding for the venture – some £3,000 – is still coming in, with money used to pay for the training and ‘all weather’ uniforms.

    Ormskirk has the first School Pastors in Lancashire and we’re looking forward to the difference we can make for the safety and well being of children in the town,” added Dave.

    Both the local police and council are fully behind the initiative; if you’d like to find out more, or volunteer, emailOrmskirk@streetpastors.org.uk or call 07896 991090.
