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.
