YOUR HELP IS NEEDED TO CUT SPEEDING IN FAIRFORD

You are invited to a Public Meeting regarding Community Speed Watch in Fairford to be held on Wednesday 28th September at 7pm in Fairford Community Centre.

Community Speed Watch (CSW) is a locally driven initiative where members of the community can – with the support of the Police – monitor speeds of vehicles using a speed detection device (speed gun). Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the Police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds. Fairford Town Council already has its own speed detection device, but requires volunteers willing to be trained by the Police on how to use it. Training takes place on a Saturday at Cirencester Police Station and is not complicated.

As real or perceived speeding in certain areas of Fairford continues to be a concern, the trained volunteers will be needed for an hour or two on an occasional basis to conduct speed monitoring to encourage motorists to reduce their speed and increase public awareness of inappropriate speeds.

If you would like to help or you know someone who would like to be involved, please do come along. The Police will be at the meeting to explain how the scheme works.

If you cannot attend the meeting, but would like more information, please contact the Town Council Office on 01285 712344 or Chris Roberts on 01285 712150.
