URGENT - URGENT - HELP REDUCE SPEEDING THROUGH OUR VILLAGE - URGENT - URGENT
Tolleshunt Major Community Speed Watch Group.
Community speed watch groups are volunteers who use speed detection devices to monitor the speed of vehicles travelling through areas where they live and they pass details of those exceeding the speed limit to the police. Letters are then sent to the registered drivers with the aim of educating them to change their behaviour, reduce their speed and make our roads safer.
At the request of the Parish Council the PCSO responsible visited Tolleshunt Major recently and decided that the wide grass verge at the junction of Tudwick Road Tolleshunt D’Arcy Road would be a suitable place to setup the initial speed watch. He also agreed to train the volunteers here in the village at the Church Rooms. The required equipment will be provided by Essex Police.
The training can only be carried out on a weekday morning and more volunteers are urgently needed to give two hours of their time to be trained in this valuable community work. Once trained speed watch periods can be decided by the group members at times to suit themselves.
If you can help please contact Hazel Steele on 01621 860642 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the dates you could be available for training during the next three weeks.
