STREET PASTORS HELP OUT AT CHESTERFIELD CHORAL DAY

A small team of Street Pastors were out during daylight hours last weekend helping to steward for the Chesterfield Choral Day. 15 choirs, most of them local, but also from as far afield as Leeds performed in three venues during the day: in The Pavements,the Library and on Vicar Lane. For fans of choral singing it was a real treat and I apologise for not being able to resist the temptation to sing along. Look out for us again at The Big Sing on Bank Holiday Sunday 2-4pm in Rykneld Square. A variety of choirs will be performing ending with a performance involving everyone - all for free!

SCHOOL PASTORS CIVIC LAUNCH

We would like to invite you to the official launch of Chesterfield School Pastors on Monday 20th May 7pm at Chesterfield Town Hall. You'll hear all about School Pastors from visiting speakers and have the opportunity to register your interest in the training if you think you might like to be a volunteer. Everyone is welcome to come along and find out more.

OUT IN ALL WEATHERS!

This winter - which seems to have gone on forever - Chesterfield Street Pastors have been out in all weathers. We have only been missing one Saturday night when we had so much snow it wouldn't have been wise to try and travel. But they have braved hail, sleet, rain and incredibly cold temperatures. Are they barking mad? You might think so and I couldn't possibly comment! If you ask them they'll tell you how much they love being Street Pastors and having the opportunity to meet and chat to people and sometimes being there to help. So if you see the team in town this Saturday stop and say hello - it'll make their night!
