Norman Lamb“The recent events in Syria are cause for grave concern. The massacring of innocent men, women and children by chemical weapons is a clear breach of international law and moral standards.

“I want to be clear, however, that Liberal Democrats are entirely opposed to any form of large-scale intervention, like we saw in Iraq. I believe we have to act with caution and great care and in compliance with international law. We must not become embroiled in a complex civil war.

“The Government must now work hand in hand with other countries and within the international legal framework to consider the right way forward.”

Local MP Norman Lamb Attends Cromer Carnival

Norman Lamb at Cromer Carnival 2013This year’s eagerly-anticipated Cromer Carnival took place between the 17th and 23rd August. As always, the Carnival offered a wide range of events and opportunities from circus workshops, magic shows and live music to raffles, competitions and quizzes.

During his visit to the Carnival, local MP Norman Lamb took the opportunity to visit the stands of key health charities Kidney Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as the Royal National Lifeboat Institute. The Macmillan Big Green Bus, which paid a visit to the carnival this year, offers mobile cancer information services and is a particularly valuable resource for those living in a rural area such as North Norfolk.

In between hearing about the valuable work carried out by these charities, Lamb also had time to enjoy the light-hearted elements of the carnival and even posed in the Kidney Research UK ‘red arrows cockpit’.

Commenting, Local MP Norman Lamb said:

“I am always so impressed by the variety and quality of the events of Cromer Carnival and greatly enjoyed my visit this year.

“The dedicated team of volunteers and organisers that enable this event take place are a credit to the fantastic community-spirit of Cromer Town.

“I was particularly grateful to have the chance to visit both the Kidney Research UK stand and the Macmillan Big Green Bus during my visit to the Carnival. The vital work carried out by these charities both locally and nationally helps to improve the lives of millions; I would like to voice my whole-hearted support of all that they do.”


Local MP Norman Lamb Attends Sheringham Play Park Revamp Campaign Fun Day

Local MP Norman Lamb recently attended a fun day for the Sheringham Play Park Revamp campaign. The campaign is run by a group of volunteers who are working together for the renovation of Sheringham’s main Play Park.

As well as providing a whole range of activities from bouncy castles to teddy tombola, the fun day also raised an impressive 890 which will contribute to the Play Park revamp.

Commenting, Local MP Norman Lamb said:
“I was delighted to attend the fun day organized by the Sheringham Play Park Revamp campaign. It was fantastic to see so many local people coming together to support this cause.

“The Play Park clearly plays a very important role in the Sheringham community. I fully support the efforts of the campaign to renovate the Play Park so that it can continue to be enjoyed by local people and visitors to the area.”
