A team of angels who have helped Hartlepool’s late night revellers stay safe for years have been honoured by the mayor for their long service.

Volunteers have been looking after people on the town on a Saturday night for eight years by providing first aid, flip flops, lollipops and a listening ear.
Four of the valued volunteers, who are stepping down from front line duties have been honoured by the Mayor of Hartlepool Councillor Allan Barclay.

They included Drew Mills, Lisa Barwick and Karen Milner, who have all been involved since the initiative started in May 2011 and will continue in support roles. Steve Brock, who helped launch the project , was also honoured. Coun Barclay said: “They add something special to our night-time economy, contributing to a safer Hartlepool at weekends, and so helping all kinds of people get home safely. “We would like to thank them for the hours they have put in without thought of reward of any kind except the satisfaction of helping other people.
