Welcome to Great Tey

Great Tey Community Speedwatch

We are the hi-vis jacketted persons you will have seen by the roadside since we began 20 months ago. We are trained by Essex Police and our aim is to deter speeding through our village and make it a safer place for us all to live. We recently participated in, and were praised for, our contribution to the “Surround A Town” one-day event organised by Colchester Borough Council during which we logged 30 speeders in our village. Speedwatch results are recorded on the Essex Police database.

We are looking for volunteers for our Community Speedwatch scheme. If you can give us half an hour of your time a week on our rota, please contact Lorraine Collins on 211248. Every volunteer will be subject to checks and training from Essex Police.
