COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH
There is a move within East Bergholt to set up a Community Speed Watch (CSW), the purpose of which is to make our roads safer. CSW doesn’t have any powers to prosecute (!) it is simply a means of encouraging drivers to obey the speed limit. Suffolk Police will provide training and give advice as to where to carry out the check. A CSW needs at least six volunteers. If you would like to be part of a strategy to make East Bergholt a safer place, please let me know and we can arrange a meeting to discuss all the relevant issues and get things moving. For full details of CSW look at
East Bergholt Parish Council is supporting this project. Email
