A south Norfolk branch of the Salvation Army has held a weekend of celebrations marking its 120th anniversary.

The event was one in a weekend of celebrations marking 120 years since the church first came to the town.
Other celebrations included an exhibition in the Diss Museum’s community cabinet featuring photographs recording the church’s history, uniforms of members and a number of instruments including the group’s first band drum, dating back to 1905.
Other anniversary celebrations included a BBQ and hog roast involving the organisation’s Scout Group, a festival of talents and a number of evening events with special guests from other territories.
