Haughton Community Speedwatch – PLEASE HELP!

As part of the Annual Assembly discussions on speeding traffic the Community Speedwatch campaign was raised. It was agreed to re-instigate this activity and the meeting was told that training will be given to volunteers. Helen Fisher (Deputy Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner) and Cllr Winnington volunteered to attend a group session when the scheme is up and running. Volunteers from the village are needed! Our Co-ordinator is Andy White. Several people raised their hands to volunteer on the night – if this was you or you can assist with Haughton’s Community Speedwatch campaign please email the Parish Clerk, and your details will be passed to Andy White.
