Crowland girl receives a special visit after writing to Lincolnshire Police about speeding drivers




A six-year-old girl had a special visit after writing a letter to police about speeding.

Georgia Cross wrote to police asking for speed bumps to be installed in Crowland while raising concerns about speeding drivers in the town.

After receiving her letter PC Paul Coupland dropped by her home to speak to Georgia along with brother Jayden and their proud mum Natalie.

Mrs Cross, who was shocked to find a police officer on her doorstep, said: “I thought ‘what I have done?’.

“Georgia was a bit shy at first but she was really pleased and proud that he had taken the time out to come and have a chat with her and that he was going to do something.

“There is a lot of pressure on police and they don’t have a lot of time for certain things so it is good that he came and thought it was important to come and see her really.”

Mrs Cross said that Georgia had come home to say that she needed to write a letter to the police about the speeding drivers in the town.

Georgia wrote in the letter: “I have been seeing lots of fast cars. They need to slow down.

“And can you ask the builders to make bumps in the road? Thank you for your help.”

Mrs Cross believes this has become important to Georgia during their walks in the town.

She said: “She is quite a caring and helpful girl and always trying to cheer up people. One of her friends didn’t get many Easter Eggs so she decided to share some of hers.”

Lincolnshire Police are asking drivers to put a ‘#SlowDownInLincolnshire’ bumper sticker on their vehicles in a bid to give fellow motorists a visible reminder to slow down when driving on our roads.

As reported in our sister paper, The Lincolnshire Press, stickers can be picked up at Spalding Police Station.
