School Council - Speed Checking

On Thursday (25th January 2018) School Council were given the exciting opportunity to do speed checks with the police on Milkwood Road! The children were collected from school by PC Laura who took us to the corner of the road, where the police had set up a speed limit check. The children learned that Milkwood Road is supposed to be a 20 mile an hour zone but drivers frequently go too fast. The council members were shown how to use a speed camera gun and helped the police to monitor the speed of passing cars; some of them caught a vehicle driving over the speed limit! Meanwhile, other school council members got the chance to sit in a police van, learn about the special features of police cars and even set off the siren and blue lights. It was a very informative and thrilling afternoon for all the children.
