COMMUNITY SPEEDWATCH IN OPERATION

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 17:33 by Phillip Woodward

At the "cuppa with a copper"event at St Mary's Centre on 6th July, PCSO Kate Hodnett received a number of complaints from residents of Hardstoft Road about speeding traffic in the area.In response to this, Kate together with Pilsley's Speedwatch volunteers Geoff McNeice and Pete Stevenson undertook a speed awareness session on Hardstoft Road on the afternoon of 18th July.The speed of sixty four vehicles was checked and one vehicle was clocked at 41 mph. The driver will receive a warning letter from Derbyshire Constabulary.After the forthcoming holiday period and when further volunteers are trained we hope to carry out regular Speedwatch sessions on Pilsley's roads.

THE GOOD AND BAD SIDES OF PILSLEY

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 17:27 by Phillip Woodward

The Parish Council's new play equipment on Parkhouse Green Recreation Ground has been well received by the community and is being well used by children including pupils of Parkhouse School.Following the news last weekend that we had been successful in obtaining a grant of £10,000 from the National Lottery's Awards For All Fund we are now proceeding with our plans to provide play equipment on Sampsons Playing Field and Morton Road Recreation Ground. The equipment takes about six weeks to manufacture so we hope to have it in place within a couple of months.Now for the diappointing news.When we opened the skatepark last October we followed the advice of the supplier and the practice of other Councils who had skateparks by having a notice board erected on site. The notice board welcomed users and contained guidelines on the use of the skatepark and how to get the maimum enjoyment out of it. The sign cost the Council (i.e. Council taxpayers) over £600.Sadly some mindless person or persons have seen fit to destroy the notice board. It has obviously been struck by a hammer or some type of heavy object. We find it difficult to believe that this mindless act of vandalism can have been carried out by regular users of the skatepark and it is more likely to have been carried out by individuals who just don't seem to want young people to have the type of facilities we think they should have.Either way we would welcome any information that anyone might have. This would of course be treated in the utmost confidence but the police will be advised of the incident.The destruction of the notice board is a disappointment to the Council because we fail to see what anyone could gain from doing it. However it will not prevent us from continuing to provide facilities for the benefit of the Village.

Concerned about the speed of traffic in Pilsley?

Are you concerned about the speed of traffic in Pilsley?Would you like to assist in making Pilsley's roads safer for pedestrians and drivers?If so, how about joining Pilsley's Community Speedwatch initiative ?Community Speedwach is an initiative under which volunteers monitor the speed of vehicles in areas of concern to the public.Under the scheme, trained volunteers use a speed gun to monitor and record the speeds and registration numbers of speeding vehicles in an attempt to improve driver behaviour and get drivers to slow down. Drivers who are caught speeding receive a letter from the Police warning them of their behaviour and seeking their cooperation by reducing their speed in future.The aim of Community Speedwach is not to catch and prosecute as many speeding drivers as possible but to reduce traffic speed in areas of concern and to make drivers aware that excessive speed is socially unnacceptableAnyone interested in joining Community Speedwach is requested to contact either Pete Stevenson on 01773 872557 or Geoff McNeice on 01773 874656. Applicants do have to go through a Police vetting system and some basic training before being accepted as volunteers.
