6:00am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
Pubs and clubs in the Wimbledon area have shown support for the Merton Street Pastors by raising £1,100 to be donated to the group.
For one month, many venues in Wimbledon have had collection boxes for the voluntary group as a way of supporting them for their worthwhile work.
The Merton Street Pastors patrols the streets several Friday night a month to ensure local residents have support when feeling vulnerable.
Pubwatch - a crime prevention scheme - has been welcomed and embraced by pub and club owners working in the area.
Meetings are held once a month with the Metropolitan Police and Love Wimbledon to unite against crime and make sure night-life in Wimbledon is safe and enjoyable.
