To those who know it best, it is somewhat of a hidden gem.
And now a new campaign is set to shine a light on everything that is great about the market town of Diss, so others can discover one of the most special places in the heart of Norfolk.
Enjoy Diss More is designed to promote a sense of pride in the South Norfolk town, which is about 25 miles south of Norwich.
Run by the Archant team at the Eastern Daily Press and Diss Mercury, is designed to reflect what a vibrant place Diss is by raising awareness of its best attractions, places to visit and the people who make it tick.
But the goal is also to encourage people to share what they love Diss by joining the conversation on the Enjoy Diss More Facebook page, as well as sending in their best pictures and reports on what is going on in the area.
Archant’s South Norfolk editor Andrew Papworth said: “We’re extremely excited to launch Enjoy Diss More and have the support of the town.
“Diss is a beautiful place and a hidden gem in South Norfolk that sadly, due to its location, sometimes gets overlooked.
“But with this campaign we want to really celebrate the town, its community and all the wonderful things that happen here, we’d like to invite everyone to join us in doing this and help us to do this.”
Diss councillor Julian Mason added: “Diss has a lot to offer.
“The campaign is a very positive thing for the town, anything that can promote Diss and what the town has to offer must be a good thing.”
Doreen Collins, a member of the Diss Town Guide Committee said: “Having actively promoted Diss as a tourist destination for more than 25 years this campaign gives me the opportunity to continue with this work.
“It will also help to raise the profile of the town to those thinking of relocating here and a chance for residents to appreciate the range of activities, entertainment and clubs open to them,” she said.
“Diss has much to offer from its six-acre Mere and wildlife to traffic free shopping, from professional entertainment to community events – a town worthy of supporting and promoting.”
