Keep in touch with what is going on in Ashley – sign up to the address list

We have created an email address list for the residents of Ashley which provides a quick and easy way to share information around.

It has been used recently to send around information on planning issues, news and updates about the Travellers on the playing field, meetings of the Parish Council and the meeting last week to discuss the future of the Church. News and information can be sent out quickly and cheaply and the use of the address list complements the village website (ashleyvillage.org.uk) and the Facebook page (Ashley Post).

Email addresses are kept secure and are not shared with others.

To add your address to the list, please email us on ashley.cambs@yahoo.co.uk

Thank you.

Speedwatch in Ashley – Join our team of volunteers

Almost everyone in Ashley that I speak with is concerned about the speed that vehicles pass through the village. A recent speed survey showed that around 30% of vehicles significantly break the speed limit. A few cars have been recorded at more than 50mph.

Our Speedwatch team is looking for more volunteers so that we can deter drivers from speeding through Ashley. The scheme is supported by Cambridgeshire Police Force and full training is given.

We use speed detection equipment to identify vehicles that go too fast and report their details to the police. We can operate at any time within daylight hours and try to organise sessions during the busiest times – that way having the biggest impact. We work in teams of 3 so it also tends to be a pleasant social time as we get to know other people in the village and catch up on the village news.

To find out more please email me on our Speedwatch email address, csw.ashley@yahoo.co.uk , or call me on 01638 730459.
