The local volunteers – known as the Cheltenham Guardians – say they are fulfilling a role the police are unable to after the number of officers on the beat was cut drastically. Volunteers spend weekends patrolling the town centre streets – and making the city a “safer place”. They say they are protecting people enjoying a night out and claim to offer “robust care and compassion throughout the night time economy in the town.”
