Speedwatch

Volunteers are needed for the Community Speedwatch Scheme. This allows parishioners to get actively involved in monitoring the speed of vehicles travelling through their neighbourhood. It is used in areas where speeding has been identified as a concern.

It is about educating motorists in the law in relation to speeding and monitoring any trends in speeding in neighbourhoods.

Volunteers are trained to use speed indicator devices which displays vehicle speed. The registered owner of any vehicle seen exceeding the speed limit is sent an advisory letter explaining that speeding is unacceptable to the local community by the Police. Please contact the Parish Council if you are interested in volunteering.

Mobile Library Service

Derbyshire Library Service has two mobile libraries, based at Buxton and Long Eaton, serving around 150 communities across the county. These communities are visited once every four weeks and the mobile libraries offer a range of services for everyone including fiction and non-fiction books for adults and children, large print books, books on tape and books on CD as well as a selection of local studies books and information.

The mobile libraries have a lift for wheelchair users and people with mobility problems.
