Backed by the police and the council, a scheme named Street Pastors is officially launched in Oxford this week. Those behind the scheme aim to offer a helping hand to vulnerable people and those who may have had a 'few too many' in the City Centre at night. Reverend Kathryn Bracewell (left) and Rob Winn (centre), who are the organisers of the Oxford scheme, as well as Neil Townsend (right) who heads up the Wantage scheme, came in to the studios to see Paul and discuss late night goings on. Neil's tips from his experiences in Wantage include flip-flops for those in high heels and, wait for it... lollipops.
Paul spoke to Dr David Hamilton, author of a new book all about Kindness, about the importance of it and even its possible health benefits. Paul also discovered the '21-day kindness challenge' - to do a minimum of one act of kindness each and every day for 21 days, which prompted him to pledge to bring biscuits in to the office more often.
Our paper reviewer this morning was David Cranston (above), Consultant Urologist in Oxford.
