SpeedWatch Appeal

Bidborough SpeeedWatch Team - Appeal




As many of you will be aware the Bidborough SpeedWatch Team has been operating for a few years now. Their dedication of reporting speeding vehicles through the village enhances village safety and helps with the Bidborough Highway Improvement Plan.


The SpeedWatch Team is made up of purely volunteers who station themselves around the village at various locations to catch and report speeding vehicles.


Unfortunately the number of volunteers has dwindled and we are now down to only a couple of regular volunteers.


For the SpeedWatch Team to continue we desperately need more volunteers to sign up and be part of this worthwhile cause.


Full training will be given together with the necessary high-vis jackets.


Ideally we need at least three volunteers per session otherwise it is difficult to capture all the required data. The times of each session are normally in the morning during the rush hour period. However, we can change this to suit more volunteers.


Please, please get in contact if you are willing to help either through the Bidborough Parish Council Website or the Facebook Page. You can also make contact through anyone of the parish councillors or present yourself at the monthly Parish Council meetings.


Thank you.
