Congratulations to our Conservative Councillor for Watton-at-Stone, Michael Freeman

Among the winners at the annual Community DriveSafe meeting at police HQ in Welwyn Garden City was Michael Freeman from Watton-at-Stone, who won the Lead Volunteer of the Year award,

DriveSafe allows people who want to take action against speeding on their road or through their village to get training and then monitor the speed of passing vehicles using speed display equipment.

Motorists breaking the limit are sent an advisory letter and can even be visited by a police officer if they offend regularly.

Mr Lloyd said: “DriveSafe is about empowering those people who want to make a difference to the community in which they live, and make roads safer for everyone.

“These winners not only embody that spirit, but they have also gone beyond that to enable, help and encourage others to do the same. I thank them and all of the DriveSafe volunteers for their efforts.”
