I am sure you will have noticed the long-awaited arrival of the Vehicle Activated Speed sign in the village which spent its first couple of months on the post outside the Church. The intention now is for it to be moved around to the different locations in the village every few weeks.

Data can be collected to analyse the speeds and numbers of vehicles at different times of day and the Parish Council hopes that the sign will act as a reminder to people to adhere to the 20mph limit in the centre of the village.

We would now like to recruit a small team of volunteers to be responsible for keeping the batteries charged, moving the sign from post to post and downloading the data. Please contact the Clerk at parishcouncil@occold.com  if you would like to help
