The Parish Council are embarking on a project in 2017 to help reduce speeding in Pound Lane.

The purpose is to alert the Police to drivers that do not respect the speed limits through our  Village but the the Parish Council cannot do this without your support. 


Once enough volunteers have been secured Police from Basilon's Casualty Reduection Unit will provide the traning to carry out the tasks and equipment safely.


If you would like to help ensure that the village roads are kept safe for both cars and pedestrians contact either:


Councillor Terry Potter or Chris Barlow , the Parish Council Clerk

Telephone details are in Councillor

contacts above.
