Swansea Street Pastors
with new promotional videos. In 2013 the Street Pastors in Swansea approached us asking us to create a promotional video that will capture the work and ethos of Street Pastors and help them recruit more volunteers for the ever growing needs in Swansea. Our city has been granted a Purple Flag status, which is a great honour and reward for the hard work of many agencies and the Street Pastors as well. Their work had been commended on numerous occasions, by many officials, our city needs them. So, when we were commissioned in 2015 for a second time, we were ever so delighted and excited. The new video project was to be again, used as a recruitment tool but was to be quite different than the first one. This time we had to make three short films. The idea was to film three individual stories of Street Pastors, who come from various walks of life, various vocations and demographic groups. We wanted to show that whoever you are and whatever you do, you can be a Street Pastor. Here is the first story of the series.
is a deputy head-teacher in a local primary school and she enjoys working with children and young people. She sees her work as a tremendous opportunity to influence, inspire, motivate the children to use their potential for the future, to help them make the most while in school. She helps the children learn how to prepare and deal with aspects of life in a mature way, instill values in them that will help them later on. As most people, when Jane heard about Street Pastors, she didn’t see herself as one who could do it. She thought it was something to do with street preaching, being a pastor, and that wasn’t her heart. But when she found out what the Street Pastors actual do and how practical and valuable is their work she realised she can definitely do it.
