Volunteer spirit gives blue lamps a chance to glow again

Joy is an English teacher and Charlotte runs a small bed and breakfast. But when these two smiling middle-aged women are not giving lessons or looking after guests, they run a police station.
If you were the north Londoner whose mobile phone was stolen just after 3pm last Wednesday and came into the Muswell Hill nick to report the theft, it was Joy and Charlotte who calmed you down, took the details and advised you what to do next. Had it been two months earlier, the victim would have found the door barred.
