Barbara North is calling for volunteers for her revival of the Speed Awareness scheme. She has some willing volunteers but would welcome more. Barbara can be seen most days walking round the village with her dogs. She is very concerned about the speeds of some drivers entering and leaving the village.
It’s only an hour a week to volunteer. Full training will be given. Our Parish Clerk has experience of other parishes where the scheme has received a shot in the arm and they now, at the behest of the Police Commissioner, receive monthly reports on the effort expended and the number of vehicles checked and the number who have been written to by the police.
The data from the Sam2 camera has shown that although many drivers obey the limits through the village, about 10% are speeding and we need to try to reach them to encourage them to reduce their speed through our village.
