Community Speed Watch


The 2019 Community Speed Watch campaign starts end of February through to end of March. The success of this campaign is dependent on volunteers operating the speed camera. This is where we need your help.

There will be a total of about 15 one-hour sessions spread over a six week period timed to be run during the morning and evening rush hours, and each session requires three operators. The more helpers we have the better, so if you feel you could help out, please contact Steve Booker and he will give you more details. Once he has final numbers he can sort out a rota.

If you are interested in helping out for the first time, you are required to attend a short training session to be held on SATURDAY 9th FEBRUARY at Caroline Chisholm School.
