At last, Oxborough get its SAM
(Speed Awareness Message) sign.

Traffic calming though the village was originally instigated over 20 month’s ago by concerned members of the community who financed the unit with their fund raising (Oxborough Community Road Safety Campaign Group) efforts and support from a NCC grant.
The sign was activated on the 1st April and is to be situated alternately at each end on the village every two weeks from now on; hopefully this will set the pattern for motorist to drive carefully through our village.
