OWSLEBURY Parish Council is looking for volunteers to help set up a community speed watch. 
Community Speed Watch is a national initiative where members of the local community help the police to monitor the speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices. 
The parish council is encouraging people interested in committing a few hours a month to email owsleburyparishcouncil@gmail.com. 
It will involve a one-hour training session with the police which can be completed virtually via Zoom. A minimum of three people are needed at the roadside for each session.
