The first four street pastors in Caithness have been commissioned at a special event in Wick and have embarked on their first patrol.
Alan and Margaret Finch along with Peter Sinclair and Richard Sharp undertook 12 days of training over a 12-week period and officially became Street Pastors at a ceremony in the Wick Baptist Church on 19 November.
The team had their first patrol in Wick on Saturday 26th, which went very well with lots of interaction with people on the streets. Street Pastors were welcomed, and people already recognised the logo which gave opportunities to explain more. A number of spontaneous thanks happened on our first night.
