Many of you know, or would have seen Mike and Helen carrying out Speedwatch duties in Durbans Rd in the last few months.

Our goal was to try and reduce the speed limit to 30mph and update the signage by way of gathering evidence to support the application to the Parish Council and then forward to the County Council for assessment.

We have now decided to step away from this as we have been unsuccessful in recruiting other volunteers to help on a regular basis and ease the load.  We have put notes through doors, knocked on doors and emailed for help and there has been no response even though many complained about speed.
