The North Norfolk Labour Party (NNLP) will reach ten decades of political action in the community later this year.

And party organisers are marking the milestone with the publication of a book on the history of the party, a centenary dinner, and the sale of mugs and badges.

David Russell, NNLP archivist, said: “We’re celebrating our centenary this year, with the publication of The Banner Bright.

“We’re also going to do a statement on the benefits of Europe, and hope to have a speaker in September.”

Jasper Haywood, NNLP youth officer, added: “I’d like to see more young people involved with the Labour Party in the next 100 years.”

And Tim Bartlett, who designed the souvenirs, said “We hope and believe that by promoting Labour in a proper manner we will return.”

The mugs cost £5 or two for £8. For details, visit: www.facebook.com/northnorfolk/
