You might have noticed that we have received new 30km/h and Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) signage a few weeks ago. As the Gallops estate was still showing the old mph signage, the GRA applied for new signage in km/h beginning of the year. As you can see at the time line above, these changes take time. We also combined the NHW at estate entrance points and hope it will deter burglars, and that the new speed limit signage will slow down traffic.
As always please be vigilant, call 999 if you see any suspicious vehicles or dubious characters. Double check that your house and car doors are locked, and your alarm is set, before going to bed and ideally use lights with motion sensors around your house.
Keep in touch with neighbours and look after their property when they’re away. Stay safe everyone.
