New 30 mph road signs.

Promised to us almost a year ago and now finally  arrived, you must have noticed that at each end of the village we have now acquired new 30 mph signs that incorporate the camera logo. This is to support the work of the “Speed Watch” volunteers who monitor  motorists passing through the village in an attempt to persuade them to slow down to  safe and legal  speeds.

The addition of the camera logo removes the requirement to position the yellow temporary signs that we have used up to now.

Standing outside my house on Tuesday, they seemed to having an effect with cars travelling at reasonable speeds – the new signs are big enough to give plenty of warning.

Meeting of Community Speedwatch

SpeedWatch resumes.

After a long break, SpeedWatch has resumed in Foxearth. Following a request for volunteers, organised by Peter Routley who has now taken over as Village Co-ordinator for the scheme, over a dozen residents put their names forward . Following a meeting on Tuesday 24th April, the first training sessions were set up with a view to being fully operational early in May. SpeedWatch takes place at random times between April and October its objective being to persuade motorists to reduce their speed when going through the village. The scheme always needs volunteers, so if you have a few hours a month to spare between April and October and would like to be part of SpeedWatch, please contact Peter on his e mail account at
