Community Speedwatch Volunteers needed!
THE Port Sunlight Village Trust have
noticed an increasing issue with speeding in the village. To effectively reduce
the problem Trust would like to set up a Community Speedwatch Initiative in
partnership with the Neighbourhood Policing Team.
Speedwatch is a locally driven initiative, where members of the community join
together with the support of the Police to monitor speeds of vehicles using
radar guns. Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the Police, with
the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds. We are told that all
volunteers will receive appropriate training, and will be supported by the
Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) staff in their work.
"We cannot rectify this issue without determining where and when the worst
cases are occurring in the village, so we do desperately need your help in
carrying out this scheme. Anyone who is interested in taking part in the new
year, whether you can dedicate an hour or 20 of your time, please contact the
Conservation Adviser, Lizzie Heywood, on:- 0151 644 4813 or send them an
Together we will tackle this issue!" said Carol Darlington, from the
