Community Speed Watch

The Parish Council have been asked to consider re-starting the Speed Watch Scheme in the village. The Police team that run the scheme have advised that we require a minimum of 6 volunteers before the Police will consider approving the scheme in the village. We therefore need some volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, or would like some further information, could you please contact the Parish Clerk Nicola Smith: by email on monkseleighpc@gmail.com
or by telephone on 07817 170906
or in writing at Stable Flat, 47 High Street, Lavenham, Suffolk, CO10 9PY.
