The Community Speedwatch scheme run by the Swindon Borough Council gives local people the chance to be actively involved in making South Marston’s roads safer for everyone in the village. It has been effective in Blunsdon in improving road safety. Residents, who are willing to volunteer a small amount of their time each week, now have the chance to help monitor speeds with state-of-the-art speed detection equipment on our roads with the aim of deterring drivers from exceeding the speed limit. With this aim in mind, the existing small band of volunteers will be starting to monitor speeds in our village with effect from 18th March. We now need more volunteers to come forward for training.

Please contact the village co-ordinator Tony Leathart on 827744 or
