​“He has given me a bit of life back and I just wanted to say thank you to this amazing man…big thumbs up to Stephen.”


A huge well done to police volunteer Stephen Maitland who received a Wow! Award nomination for his help in helping a member of the public feel at ease in a new area.


“I have just moved here from another area and was really scared,” she said.

“Stephen listened and gave me some good advice and as I have learning difficulties went over everything to make sure I understood. 


“Sometimes I find it hard to talk to people and say what I mean but he came down to my level and put me at ease -  this man needs a medal as even my mental health worker could not get me settled in a new place. 


“Now that Stephen has put in an alarm for me I can sit in my garden which I haven't done in four years but after speaking with Stephen I'm more than happy to do this - he has given me a bit of life back and I just wanted to say thank you to this amazing man…big thumbs up to Stephen.”
