So here is  half of Team P ( Peter  Richardson ) and myself  ( I’m taking the shot ). Bringing  SID site no. 6 online for the residents of Somerton. Behind  Berry will be on the regular location from March onwards as we in partnership with  Compton Parish  Council share  SID units each month so we  can have 2 sites every 2 weeks. Plus very shortly will will have a site  in Sutton Road by the footpath to Tom Tits lane, as well as  Gassons  Lane another speed black spot. If you are interested in becoming in any way part of the campaign to reduce speeds and the danger they cause to residents please make contact and talk to us at Somerton Community Speed Watch
