Notes from the Annual Parish Meeting
held on 19th May 2015, 7pm in the Village Hall
Brian Robins, Cambridgeshire Police Force Speedwatch Coordinator, presented to the residents.
Given the success of the Speedwatch group in Glatton, residents in Gidding have expressed an interest in forming a Speedwatch group here. Brian suggested a minimum of 5 volunteers get together to form a group, of which only 3 would need to be present at the time of monitoring the traffic. This way volunteers can take it in turns and spread the workload.
Training will take approx. 1 hour and the actual traffic monitoring can take place for approx. 30mins or for however long the group feel is beneficial.
To have what is considered an active Speedwatch group, volunteers would need to be monitoring traffic at least once every 2 months.
Evidence gained from monitoring can be used to form a proposal for funding for further speed prevention measures, in the future, however, Glatton have seen a significant reduction in speed just through drivers knowing the scheme is in force.
This is not a group that will be run by the Parish Council, so volunteers are needed. If speeding is a concern of yours and you would be willing to give a little of your time to help reduce the problem, please contact the Parish Clerk and she will pass your details onto the group.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
