I am recently new to Stoke, well Jan 2009 and have noticed that the speed people enter our village is scary. I am sure things have been done about tis in the past but I felt I should bring it up here to see if there is anything else we can do.
I have written to the council who advised I speak to the police and parish council. The police to see if they want to do speed checks and the council to get involved with flashing speed signs - which I recall was installed for a couple of weeks back last year.
I live off Burgess Hill and notice that most motorists slow as the get more into the village. My neighbour lost her cat the other day and I know of others that have lost cats from speeding cars. It is such a shame that people speed down from the quarry as it does make walking or riding out of the village dangerous, not to mention the worry of another cat getting run over.
If there is anything we can be doing I would be interested to know if I can help. I appreciate that there are bigger things going on with Cookswood at the moment, but maybe this could tie in somehow.
