Sixth formers speak out for a safer city

Published on 26/02/19

Sixth form students from The Hewett Academy have shared their vision of a safer Norwich as part of a community scheme offering young people the chance to shape the city’s future.

Mollie Bulman, Chloe Place, Wilhelmina Petrus, and Tamsin Rumsby put forward their ideas for reducing the city’s violent crime in a meeting for the Create Norwich project held at Dragon Hall in February.

They shared their research on Norwich’s crime statistics and spoke confidently and passionately about the need to “change violence to vio-less”.

The day brought together students from schools and colleges across the city to debate issues such as housing, ecology, sustainable development, transport, and accessibility.
