    The local election results are in, and I would like to thank everyone who voted Lib Dem in Norwich.

    There is much to build on for the next set of elections in 2020.

    Lib Dems back residents in road safety campaign

    The Eaton Lib Dem councillor team are backing local resident Kate Heley in her call for a crossing on Unthank Road near Judges Walk, and have met with her to look at options.

    Kate said, "This is an area that is frequently crossed, especially by students crossing from the Eaton Park area to Newmarket road or by families going to Eaton Park. Putting a crossing there would make that area much safer as there is no nearby crossing, and encourage walking."

    Last night Eaton Cllr James Wright slept out on the streets to promote awareness of the homeless crisis in Norwich and raise money for the Benjamin Foundation. This was his 4th Benjamin Foundation Sleep Out, and he was joined by over 140 others who bedded down in the car park of Norwich City Football Club for the night. Participants were delighted that Norman Lamb MP was able to pay a visit, and James would like to thank Norman for his generous support.
