An amazing group of residents in our village, led by Tracey Healey, have approached us for support to arrange a Community Speed Watch. We are keen to support anything that makes our village safer, especially given our current focus on road safety.
This action faced an initial setback because all of the necessary equipment had been allocated and that there was no available budget for new equipment to be purchased until the scheme, which is funded by Norfolk Safety Camera Partnership Board, was reviewed in April 2020.
Undeterred, the group didn’t give up and managed to get the decision reversed. They are now working with the Police to setup the Community Speed Watch. Their tenacity is an example to us all and Councillor John Lawton who heads up our Road Safety committee, is providing support on behalf of the parish council.
