Community Speed Watch

Pytchley Parish Council would like to extend a big thank you to Steve Booker, Speedwatch Coordinator, and his team of volunteers for running the 2019 campaign on Isham Road and Orlingbury Road. Without these volunteers we would not be able to carry out these speed checks.

Use the links below to see statistics from the 2019 campaign and a letter of thanks from the Police.

The link below will take you to a news article by Northamptonshire Police giving information about the Community Speed Watch scheme and recognising the value of CSW volunteers and the contribution they make to road safety. It also includes a number of interesting statistics.

There is also a link to a downloadable/printable version of the same web page.


Volunteers are always needed and the more we have the better. There are usually 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. More information will follow shortly.

Note: If you are interested in helping out for the first time, you will be required to attend a short training session in advance.

The 2018 Community Speed Watch session in Pytchley ran for a six week period (three alternate weeks) between 28th July and 1st September 2018. Please see the links below for the following results and information:
