Campaigning news from the East of England
We've been working with RNIB Connect Volunteers and partners in Norfolk to highlight the challenges of accessing Norwich City Centre since the implementation of a scheme that removed many of the controlled crossings in the area.
We’re delighted to announce that Michael Wordingham has joined the campaigns team as Regional Assistant Campaigns Officer for the East of England.
In Norwich, a group of campaigners and RNIB Connect volunteers have been working with local film maker Tom Westwood. Together, they’ve made a short film highlighting the challenges blind and partially sighted people are facing due to the changes made by the city council to the layout of Norwich city centre.
Across the East of England, campaigners are tackling the many obstructions that can make it harder for blind and partially sighted people to get out and about, as part of our 'Who put that there!' campaign.
Our Campaigns Manager Michael Wilson, along with campaigner Phil Lee, attended a half day workshop hosted by Essex County Council looking at sensory service provision in the County.
