Copthorne Village Speedwatch Update
After 11 years of Speedwatch Operations in our village we must inform everyone it has now become necessary to suspend and discontinue Speedwatch due to a number of practical reasons. Sadly the number of willing and committed helpers has reduced over these past few years from the original 15 or so to just 2 or 3 folk now who can assist with operations on a rather limited and regular basis. We must however take this opportunity of thanking everyone who has helped with Speedwatch operations over these past years in our voluntary attempt to alert drivers to the dangers of speeding on our narrow village roads to protect our children and pedestrians alike. Your efforts and support have been greatly appreciated. We would also like to thank all residents for their comments and support over the years.
It must be said that if anyone is willing, interested and able to continue with the co-ordination for Speedwatch in the future to contact me, Pete Chatfield, on 01342 712010, and I will put them in touch with the official Traffic Police Co-ordinator for the general assistance and training necessary to be able to continue with Speedwatch Operations in our village.
