MP takes to the town’s streets to find out about its guardian angels
MACCLESFIELD MP David Rutley spent a night on the streets of the town to learn about the work of its ‘guardian angels’.
David Rutley MP joined the Hope Street Angels, a voluntary organisation that offers assistance to people in difficulty on nights out,
On the night he joined volunteer Rosie Turner on a walk-about in Macclesfield town centre and found out more about its work.
During his visit, the Macclesfield MP helped Street Angels by offering directions to those who had lost their way, finding taxis and making sure party-goers were safe.
After his visit, David said: “Street Angels continue to provide important support and a valuable service to people in Macclesfield. It was great to see Street Angels in action once again, working to make our town centre a safer and more enjoyable place to be at weekends. The positive team spirit is terrific.”
The group currently has 22 volunteers. It operates on Saturday nights from 10.30pm to 3am, and are based at the United Reformed Church on Park Green.
Street Angels are always looking to recruit new volunteers. If anyone wants to know more or would like to apply to be a volunteer, they should email the Street Angels’ coordinator, Pip Mosscrop, at streetangelsmacclesfield@gmail. com.
