North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb has moved his constituency office to a new site in North Walsham.
The Liberal Democrat MP’s new base officially opened today in the former Grandma’s Pantry shop at the North Walsham Garden Centre site on Norwich Road.
A spokesman said the old offices, on Vicarage Street, had proved problematic because there was no parking and they were not accessible to those with mobility problems.
“One constituent who recently visited the old offices in a mobility scooter was forced to sit outside in the rain while speaking to Norman because they couldn’t get in,” he added.
Grandma’s Pantry has now moved inside the garden centre.
Mr Lamb said the new office had full disabled access and unlimited free parking.
He added: “This should make it much more accessible for the vast majority of my constituents across north Norfolk, and I very much hope it will make it easier for them to come to my office and raise issues with me on a regular basis”.
The telephone number for the office will remain unchanged. Constituents wanting an appointment to see Mr Lamb can phone 01692 403752 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The office will open from 10am-1.30pm on weekdays. Its postal address is: Unit 4, North Walsham Garden Centre, Nursery Drive, Norwich Road, North Walsham, NR28 0DR. Letters sent to the old address will be re-directed.
