Chaplaincy program to calm local party-goers starts soon

A STREET chaplaincy program aimed at calming aggressive party-goers outside Gladstone CBD nightspots will start on April 27.

Groups of six to eight chaplains wearing orange vests will patrol Goondoon St and provide a listening ear for revellers.

Pastor James Hewitt, who has organised the initiative with Acting Snr Const David Lemalu, said he was excited about the move.
