Haslingfield Speedwatch

In June our Speedwatch team was joined, for one session, by a PC with responsibility for casualty reduction in Cambridgeshire, the Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire and the County Speedwatch Co-ordinator.
There are now 150 Speedwatch teams working throughout Cambridgeshire, each team returns their data on speeding vehicles directly to the Police. Session results are then actioned by the Police.
We were pleased to learn that the Police also use the combined data from County teams for a variety of purposes. Read more

Can you drive? Would you like to help local people?

Why not become a volunteer driver with the Haslingfield and Harlton Community Car Scheme?

The scheme helps people who don’t have access to a car to get to medical appointments and other essential visits.  As a volunteer driver you are completely in control of how much – or how little – driving you do: you provide details of your general availability to the Scheme Coordinator, and when the Coordinator contacts you by phone or e-mail to ask if you can do a particular drive, you can say Yes or No – no pressure is applied!

Drivers receive compensation for fuel used, 30p/mile from the users and an additional 15p/mile claimed from Cambridge County Council.
We need more volunteer drivers, particularly as we head into the summer holidays.  If you are interested, or would like further information, please contact Joanna Fullick at jmfullick@gmail.com.
