Chris was a Norwich City Councillor for Lakenham ward in Norwich South from 2014-18, and served as a cabinet member and planning committe chair during that time. Her contribution to the Lakenham and wider Norwich community, as a councillor and local campaigner, was vast. Chris was also a dedicated and passionate member of the Co-operative Party and was serving as their national Chair.
I’m shocked and sad to hear the news that Chris Herries passed away suddenly this weekend.
My condolences to Chris’s family and friends at this difficult time. She will be sorely missed by many in Norwich Labour Party, the wider Labour/Co-op movement and our city.
