After a long campaign we're almost ready to launch the Kettering Community Speed Watch.
On Saturday 29 April, volunteers from Kettering will be trained in the use of a speed gun. Speed checks will then be carried out between Saturday 13 May and Friday 17 May in Pipers Hill Road, Windmill Avenue, Stamford Road and Barton Road.
If you are interested in helping us with this community initiative, there is still time to join us. Please e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call 01536 517500.
We really hope this scheme will help local residents and make our roads safer.
