NSP team set for return to streets of Norwich
Norfolk Street Partnership has announced a date for the return of its support and prayer teams onto the night-time streets of Norwich after an absence of almost 12 months.
The Street and Prayer teams will return on Saturday December 20
, NSP Chair of Trustees Deb Cousins
, was pleased to announce at the latest NSP volunteer meeting on November 22.
Deb said: “The plan is initially to cover Saturday nights and probably only fortnightly for a while as teams are re-established. Linking up with other organisations supporting the night-time economy has been taking place.
“Our primary focus will be to the young clubbers, but we will also support the rough sleepers, who will be preparing for the most challenging winter weather conditions on the streets.
“During the time NSP were off the streets there has been a positive period of restructuring and re-organising. In-house training and preparation sessions have been organised to support the large team of NSP volunteers from both Norwich
and Great Yarmouth.
The Trustees have appreciated their support and commitment,” said Deb.
A Re-commissioning Service for Norfolk Street Partnership will be held on Thursday, February 19
, 7.30pm at St. Stephen’s Church, in Norwich city centre, and the Bishop of Norwich, the Right Revd Graham Jame
s, will be attending.
“Please keep NSP in your prayers, as we prepare to join the many other organisations supporting the night-time economy in the city of Norwich,” said Deb.
