Community Speed Watch Volunteers Needed

Community Speed Watch was started in 2007, as an initiative to help communities play an active role in tackling speeding in their villages.

Tunstead and Sco Ruston used to have a speed watch team, but this was disbanded some time ago. Our local Beat Manager (police officer) wishes to restart the speed watch team again. A team consists of a minimum of six people, who will be trained in using the speed measuring equipment, with one member of the team being the coordinator who will hold the equipment and be the main point of contact.

Results of the teams are sent to a central point who will send out letters to the registered keeper of the vehicle that was observed driving over the speed limit. The letter will remind them about the hazards of speeding, and ask them to keep within the speed limits. Persistent offenders will be contacted by the local police engagement officer.

If you wish to join the team of Community Speed Watch Volunteers, please contact the Norfolk Safety Camera Partnership on 01603 276433 or the local district Engagement Officer by dialling 101.

The North Norfolk Police have published a booklet about the scheme. Click the underlined words to download the Community Speed Watch booklet.

Defibrillator Fund Raising

Good News!

We have done it!

The village has rallied round and with the help of the parish clerk applying for grants from the Awards for All (National Lottery) and The British Heart Foundation, we have all the money needed to get the defibrillator. That is £2000 raised in 8 months.

Many from the village contributed directly to the fund; The school, The Horse and Groom and its customers, the church goers. A big thank you to you all. You are incredible.

The next step is to order the defibrillator and the special heated box to keep it in. This will be installed in the ‘phone box, opposite the school, which will be refurbished prior to the installation.

BT will pay for the electricity supply for the next 7 years. This is needed to maintain the defibrillator in a working and fully charged condition.

The British Heart Foundation supplied equipment for CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) training. This is a useful addition to learning how to use the defibrillator. Training sessions will be set up to show how the equipment can be used. Come along and watch or give it a go. Watch this space for more details.
