April 18 – The results of our Community Speed Watch team show 185 minutes worked, 25 vehicles captured over the speed limit, 23 letters issued and 8 offences caught by the police Safety Camera Team. More details are to be seen on the Parish Council notice board and on the village website page.
Funding for a new speed monitoring sign is in place and this will be rotated around the village. This sign will record all traffic, times and speeds. This information will be downloaded and sent to the Parish Council who will then be able to forward the results to the Norfolk Constabulary.
The Massingham Speed Watch Team met on 16th April. Ten volunteers attended and there will now be two teams operating on alternate weeks.
We are doing our best to make the village safer. But a couple more members would really help. Contact me if you are interested.
On Thursday 8th March representatives from Great Massingham Community Speed Watch team attended a Citizens in Policing event at King’s Lynn Town Hall. Community Speed Watch teams were thanked for helping to keep the public safe. Special Constables and police cadets, as well as other volunteers, were thanked and awards given. The West Norfolk Mayor, Carol Bower who presented the awards said, “You save the community an awful lot of money. On behalf of West Norfolk, I want to say thank you.”
The Marham Community Speed Watch team received the award for the most hours and the Stanhoe team received the award for the longest serving group. Great Massingham was not far behind in both categories.
