MEMBERS of the Thornbury Community Speed Watch (CSW) team have been recognised for their efforts to make the town’s roads safer.

They were among others recognised in Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens’ Pride Awards last Tuesday.

Nominating the CSW team, PCSO Sheryl Drewitt said: “For such a small group of people managing a wide area, the Thornbury team do a fantastic job in keeping the roads safe. The reports are very impressive and have made a significant positive impact on the community.”

PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “I’ve always considered the PCC Pride Awards one of the best parts of my role as I get to say a big thank you to some truly extraordinary people in our community. I am delighted that over the past eight years so many people have chosen to nominate these ‘silent stars’, who go about their daily business with little or no recognition.

“These awards have highlighted just some of the very special individuals we have.”
