Speedwatch Quarterly results July August Sept 17

Organisers of the Community Speedwatch have made available Speed Limit stickers designed to be attached to your big grey waste bins so that they can be seen by passing motorists as a reminder about the speed limit through the village and on the surrounding lanes, for example, Heale Lane, Wiltown and Dyers Road.

If you want to help maintain motoring speeds, please contact Robert Crowley on 01458 259434 or email

Additional volunteers are always needed. Speeding traffic is a problem in Curry Rivel, there having been a number of incidents and "near misses", which would have been very alarming, particularly for pedestrians. About 15 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. Since the group was set up, the average number of passing vehicles "speeding" has been reduced from about 10% to 1.8%. When time permits there is uniformed police presence during sessions, which is much appreciated.
