Pupils of Diss Junior School were present at a flag raising event in Diss Park to celebrate Commonwealth Day on Monday, which this year places a focus on it being “young, fresh, and relevant to all generations”.

Mayor of Diss Keith Kiddie said: “The emphasis of this year’s Commonwealth Day is on honouring the future generations, a young Commonwealth. There was a contingent from Diss Junior School emphasising Commonwealth is something hopefully projecting to the future as opposed to just looking backwards to the past. People are in the Commonwealth for the mutual support and belonging that all our shared history, diversity, and community brings.”
