North West Norfolk News
by James Wild MP

Egg and cress. Not my favourite sandwich filling but the Norwich City face covering that I will be wearing when I go into shops, supermarkets, shopping centres or transport hubs. From today wearing one is compulsory and while I know people have mixed views on this it is part of the fight to continue to supress the virus.

The latest announcements mean that from 1st August most leisure attractions including bowling alleys can open, beauty salons can carry out facial treatments, wedding receptions for up to 30 people can take place, and pilot events will test whether sports stadia can reopen in October.

This was my last week in Parliament before the summer recess – and it was a busy one. I took part in two Select Committee hearings on the restoration of Parliament and the water industry. And we passed important legislation on trade and counter terrorism. 

While next month Parliament won’t be sitting, I will still be working hard here in North West Norfolk visiting businesses, talking to constituents and enjoying our fantastic pubs, restaurants and attractions.  If you see me around please do say hello!

Please do get in touch if I can be of assistance.

Best wishes,
