Speed Watch win

Mayor thanks Stanhoe’s Community Speed Watch team.

The Mayor of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk has recognised the contribution made by Stanhoe’s Community Speed Watch team, which has served the village since 2008.

On 8 March Pamela and Terry Austin represented the team at a “Citizens in Policing” recognition event hosted by the Mayor, Cllr Carol Bower, at King’s Lynn Town Hall.

The evening event was held jointly by the Council and police to thank community volunteers. Most of the people there were Special Constables or Police Cadets, and several road safety organisations were also represented.

Community Speed Watch (CSW) is a police-led initiative under which trained volunteers carry out radar speed checks of traffic in 30 mph and 40 mph areas. The Stanhoe team has been in existence since 2008, making it the longest-serving team in the Borough.

Speed Watch in Stanhoe began at a Parish Annual Meeting when Pamela, then the newly appointed Parish Council chairman, asked residents what they would like the Parish Council to do. “Deal with speeding traffic” received the highest number of votes. After learning about the CSW initiative, which began in 2007, several residents volunteered to join the team.

Since then, the number of team members has fallen quite a bit. “But we’re still running shifts, and any new members would be welcomed!”, Pamela says.
