On Thursday 17th June, residents in Sewell Ward will cast their vote for Norwich City Council and Norfolk County Council elections. This election was postponed from May after the death of Conservative candidate Eve Collishaw. You can read tributes to Eve from Labour’s Cllr Alan Waters and former Cllr George Nobbs here.
Please use both votes for Labour to re-elect Laura McCartney-Gray to Norwich City Council and Julie Brociek-Coulton to Norfolk County Council.

She worked for the Citizens Advice Bureau representing people at employment tribunals and standing up for renters in court. During COVID, Laura has been calling vulnerable residents to check that they are safe and have everything they need. She has also helped make and deliver packaged lunches at the food bank at Silver Road Community Centre. If re-elected, Laura will continue to be a committed and strong voice for Sewell Ward in both the community and in the council chamber.
