Funding is now in place for the Whitchurch Speedwatch after a successful grant application was made by the Town Council. The police have provided the £1000 grant, necessary to help purchase the equipment required.
There is now a call for volunteers to help with a local scheme.
Speedwatch has been very successful as a deterrent to drivers who break the legal speed limits. A recently commenced scheme in Overton and others around the County are reported as being very successful.
Volunteers record speeds using a SID (Speed Indicator device) and the details are sent to the police who issue warnings as appropriate.
To volunteer please contact the Town Clerks at the Town Hall.
