Wraysbury ‘guardian angels’ defend village from would-be thieves
A Wraysbury group has formed to help protect and reassure the scared and vulnerable in the wake of several recent break-ins in the village.
Wraysbury Guardian Angels got started in light of at least a score of break-ins since July.
Darren Laverty, member of the group, said:
“It’s got to the point where older people are afraid to be in their own homes.”
As such, the group of responders now monitors a WhatsApp group where people can ask for help.
“When someone is alone and scared, those that are available come to the rescue,” said Darren. “We have 415 members of the group now.
Two weeks ago there was a call-out and the group’s response ‘was rapid’ and turned out ‘decent numbers’
The suspected intruders fled towards the village where they were apprehended by the police.
“Hopefully, any would-be burglars will think twice about breaking in,” said Darren.
