Hunstanton town mayor Elaine Clutton will be joining in a blindfold walk around the town on Monday afternoon with the aim of finding out the obstacles confronting sight-impaired people every day.

Helen Sismore community engagement for East Anglia Guide Dogs, said: “People who are blind or partially-sighted have to struggle on a daily basis with poorly-placed street clutter, for example A-Boards, cycles parked poorly, cars and vans parked on pavements.

“By asking high-profile people to take on blindfold challenges in our high streets and pedestrian areas we can highlight all these issues and make lasting changes and build awareness.”
