Following a dramatic increase in members since the election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader, Broadland Labour Party has created four new branches.
The Wensum Valley Branch, covering Reepham, Cawston, Foulsham, Great Witchingham, Taverham and Drayton, held its inaugural meeting in March. The next meeting will take place in Reepham on Tuesday 9 May at Reepham Methodist Church, Station Road, Reepham, at 7.30 pm.
David Heywood, interim chair of the new branch, explained: “Since 2015 the membership of Broadland Labour Party has more than trebled from under 200 to over 600 members.
“This has given us the opportunity to review our organisation in order to make our meetings more accessible to more members," he said. "In future, our meetings will be held in different venues around our area. We now have many active members who are working hard to get our local candidates elected.”
Wensum Valley Labour is contesting three seats for the Norfolk County Council local elections on Thursday 4 May, including Ruth Goodall for Reepham Division.
