|The constituency / South Norfolk is a mainly rural constituency in the south of the county. It includes the market towns of Loddon, Harleston and Diss; the Cringleford and Old Costessey suburbs of Norwich and the expanding communities of Hethersett, Poringland and Long Stratton. More...|
A brave past / South Norfolk's quiet lanes and fields also have a brave, radical history in the famous 25-year Burston School Strike, the longest strike in British history, from 1914 to 1939. This triumphant action by teachers, forced to defend the education, conditions and futures of their pupils, was joined by the South Norfolk community and the national labour movement. It is celebrated each year with a big, free festival in the South Norfolk village of Burston. All are welcome.
|Our MPs: past, present and future / South Norfolk goes Labour in times of change: when great issues about our future need to be decided with fresh thinking and a new direction. We were the first ever rural constituency to elect a Labour MP: George Edwards in 1920, after the turmoil of the First World War. And Labour won again with the election of Christopher Mayhew in the 1945 election, part of the great Labour landslide that created the NHS, the Welfare State and post-war reconstruction.
And now, more than ever, we need fresh thinking and a new direction. To build a society that works for the many, not the few.
