We all love Diss and here is our chance to do our bit to help the town look its best — and have a lot of fun in the process.
A group of volunteers are getting together this coming Friday to tackle the planters, tidy up around the Diss Heritage Triangle, and do some gardening, including spring bulb planting, in the Mere wildlife gardens.
They are inviting anyone who would like to take part — showing off their own civic pride as well as enjoying some fresh air and meeting new people — to join in.
Project manager Sheila Moss King said: “We’ve got a whole list of jobs to do, requiring different levels of fitness and ability, so there really is something for everyone to do. If you could spare an hour or two to help spruce up the Triangle that would be fantastic – bring along any of the following: trowel, brush/broom, happy face, fork, spade, wheelbarrow, cake and enthusiasm!”
The group is meeting from 9.30am onwards, until about 2pm, on October 19, behind the council offices.
Sheila added: “We appreciate this is tricky for traders, but if anyone connected with you could spare some time, that’d be great – after all, everyone will benefit from a tidy Triangle.
“Even if you’re not up for gardening or sweeping, there’s cake and tea to be handed out. It is really rewarding to see what a difference can be made when many hands turn up.”
