Mr Robert Huck welcomed 21 members of Hebden Bridge Probus Club to hear Mr Paul Blackley speak about Street Angels.

Paul spoke on how the Angels were formed, and their purpose in patrolling the streets of Halifax, helping people who were ill, drunk, lost or frightened or in any difficulty. He was awarded the MBE recently for this work, and the Angels received a certificate of “The Big Society” from the Prime Minister.

Paul is now national co-ordinator for Street Angels. The vote of thanks was given by Geoffrey Greenwood.

Yesterday (Wednesday) Mr John Gilleghan was set to speak about “Transylvanian Tales.”
