Town Pastors.... Ian McFetridge presents The Lions Award to, From left, Selene Borda, John Borda and Robin Hardy.

18th October 2009

See Newmarket Journal article. The citation for the award, written by Lesley-Ann Keogh, Community Safety Co-ordinator of Forest Heath District Council, read:

The recipient or should I say recipients for this award have only been in operation for a short time however in that time their presence within Newmarket has exceeded expectation and had a significant impact not only on the fear of crime but also on the personal safety of a number of individuals.  The team of volunteers each week are faced with a number of issues ranging from personal safety, medical assistance and the removal of alcohol and dangerous items.

The time given by these volunteers, within anti social hours, in challenging and sensitive situations is acknowledged by this award and I hope that this partnership will continue and expand.

It gives me great pleasure to present this Fear of Crime Award to Newmarket Town Pastors (Churches Together).

Well done to everyone involved!
