Traffic speeds through Maynards Green in Heathfield were terrifying for walkers - and for sensible drivers too. So local members of Wealden Green Party got together in October and set up a Speedwatch team. Here they are in action, fully trained and equipped with their speed camera.
The team say, "The main aim of speed watching is to make our roads safer and to persuade drivers to respect the speed limit. The group has been active since October and local Green Party members are supported by other like-minded residents. We are really encouraged by the many sympathetic hoots and friendly signs by passing motorists, and pedestrians' expressions of gratitude.
"Most drivers markedly reduce their speed as they spot us and our speed camera, and it goes a long way to compensate for the chilly winds and our icy feet!"
If you'd like to join the team or think your area needs a Speedwatch team, get in touch!
Vote Georgia Taylor for Parliament - 12 Dec 2019
Voting Green and 'tactical' voting in Wealden
Voting LibDem or Labour won’t unseat Nus Ghani, no matter what they say.
Voting Green sends a strong message to the new government: Green voters demand significant change on climate and social justice.
Voting Green is a clear vote for remaining in Europe.
We encourage everyone to vote for the party that best represents their values.
Why didn't the Greens stand down in Wealden?
A Unite to Remain candidate is only standing in constituencies where a Remain candidate has a good chance of beating a Leave candidate.
The Unite to Remain strategy gives the Green Party significantly more chance of electing more Green MPs.
In Wealden, the combined votes of all opposition parties won’t unseat Nus Ghani.
Wealden Green Party is a successful party. We have increased our share of the vote in most recent elections and plan to do so again.
