January Speedwatch Results

About 10 years ago the Parish Council gave its approval for a volunteer group to be established, to receive police training and organise sessions to observe and record speeding vehicles.

When time permits there is uniformed police presence during sessions, which is much appreciated.

So, a very successful insect perhaps because in contrast to their beauty they are aggressive, carnivorous predators during their...
