Police Speed Indication Device Results for Northowram.
Speeding on the main Bradford Road has always been a problem as it is such a busy road, especially for older residents trying to cross and even for those trying to turn right into the main carrigeway. There has recently been more police presence in the form of speed traps and also in measuring speed not just on the road mentioned but some of the other smaller roads in the village. Speed measurements have been taken for Northowram Green in the direction of Score Hill, 10 yards from Yarborough Croft, and the results are high for expected average speeds. Measuring 41 cars, 85% were over the speed limit! Other areas measured did a little better but were still high. What does this mean? Look out for speed detection vans in the village itself.
Please help make this site a one stop place for villagers to find out about all activities that are happening in our area.
This site was funded by the Northowram Village Society and the Northowram Historical Society to help in promoting the activities and issues that affect village life. As it has grown it was felt that other activities and businesses could use this site to direct people to their own site or just to advertise their presence.
Feedback has been fantastic from those who believe it is working for the village together with interaction from community groups and leaders it has meant a constant flow of information. We know there are areas we could promote better and will work towards increasing the content, but we also need YOUR help by supplying any relevant information you require to communicate to villagers as this is a non profit making site and relies on a constant update of viable information.
Since 7th March 2011 when the site was launched we have had 2500 pages looked at with nearly 1000 people looking at the site and over 300 returning regularly to look at it, and that is without advertising the site. We have also achieved a first page rating when putting Northowram in the search box in Google.
It is our objective to get local businesses and activites promoted. The only fees apply to small ads and this money helps in keeping the site active. Our next objective is to promote the site to ALL villagers, so this will be the most cost effective way to reach customers and villagers alike. You can contact us at:-
