    On November 15, Eaton Councillor James Wright will brave the elements to take part in the 2018 Benjamin Foundation Sleep Out at Carrow Road.

    This is the 4th time the Benjamin Foundation have held this fundraising Sleep Out, and James has taken part since the beginning.

    James was prompted to campaign to raise awareness of issues around homelessness and rough sleeping after seeing the short film - Homeless and Rough Sleeping in Norwich - back in 2012. The film contained a young girl talking about her experiences of rough sleeping, and only a couple of years previously she was a student at the school where James worked.

    The local Lib Dems have responded to the publication of the recommendations for how to proceed with the 20mph scheme in Eaton.

    Councillors spent August talking with residents, EVRA and officers about the proposals for Greenways and Church Lane, given that they were so out of proportion to what was needed. One resident described the proposed scheme as 'a sledgehammer to crack a nut'.
