Anna Soubry MP congratulates Moorgreen “Speed Watch” volunteers

Moorgreen residents have suffered from speeding cars and heavy lorries for years. So local, Paul Turner, contacted MP Anna Soubry who readily asked to meet him and fellow residents in the Horse and Groom car park at the top of Moorgreen. A meeing with residents, police, local Councillors and Anna soon followed and as a result a “Speed Watch” was formed.

A dozen or so residents volunteered to train as speed gun operators at four locations on Moorgreen and from today they are ready for action.

Anna Soubry said “Paul Turner and Secretary, Barbara Wigley have done a sterling job in resurrecting the Moorgreen Residents Association and campaigning to make the area safer.”

“Speed Watch will make a huge difference. But the campaign is not over as we still have to convince Notts County Council to restrict HGV’s on Moorgreen and make improvements to the area so it is safer for residents and road users”.
