    Liberal Democrats are calling for an extra £1 million to be spent on supporting Norfolk's children.

    As part of their budget proposals for Norfolk County Council, Liberal Democrat councillors want to increase funding for front-line support for families through the new 'Early Childhood and Family Service'. This would reverse a cut that was pushed through by Conservative councillors in January.

    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.

    Mobile libraries provide a place for rural or remote communities to gather. People enjoy coming together to meet. Mobile libraries offer a chance for a community to connect with each other, share stories, and be a social gathering place. This is especially important in rural, isolated places where the opportunity to connect with others is limited.

    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'.
