Local MP, Douglas Carswell, has welcomed the latest citizens’ initiative where a group of volunteers will patrol the streets of Clacton in order to prevent anti-social behaviour. According to coordinator Rev David Titley from St Paul’s Church , a similar scheme in Colchester resulted in a 20 percent decrease in alcohol related problems at night.
“I understand many are concerned with the current rates of anti-social behaviour, and I applause the local men and women who have decided to take action.”
“I am delighted to see that the people of Clacton are working together for a safer community. Such initiatives are excellent examples of Clacton’s thriving civil society.”
