Norfolk's mark will be left in Manchester long after the Labour Party Conference season is over.
The local North Norfolk Labour Party has handed over some historic artefacts to the People's History Museum in the city, and the museum, which tells the story of the development of democracy in Britain over the last 200 years, will show items from the district including shields, trophies, and banners in an exhibition starting in Januuary.
The North Norfolk Labour Party has also assisted in digitalising sound clips of the 1964-1970 Labour MP for North Norfolk Bert Hazell.
The party received a tour of the museum today during Labour Party conference week.
The items will be on display from January, alongside Trade Union and party political memorabilia from across the political spectrum. The museum houses artefacts from the miners' movement, British Prime Ministers of the past, and the first ever Labour Party minutes.

David Russell, archivist for North Norfolk Labour Party, said: 'I consider it most important that such items at risk of being lost forever are now safe and secure and bare tribute to those of the Labour Party in North Norfolk who have gone before us. The decision to donate is one that the party should rightly be proud of.'
