Diss Remembrance Day well attended as town pays its respects





Large crowds lined the streets on Diss to pay their respects on Sunday as the community gathered to watch the town’s Remembrance Day parade, wreath laying service and church service in St Mary’s, Diss.

The parade marched from the Mere at 2.20pm, lead by town clerk and event organiser Sarah Richards, along with the Salvation Army band, standard and flag bearers, the Royal British Legion, Royal Air Force Association, air cadets, Army cadets and other youth groups.

These were followed by a total of 35 wreath bearers, with various dignitaries also in attendance, including the deputy Lieutenant of Norfolk, MP Richard Bacon, Diss mayor Eric Taylor, government representatives and Diss town councillors.

“The event went very smoothly – even the weather behaved,” said Robert Rogers, branch secretary of Diss and District Royal British Legion.

“It was nice to see the public who came to support the parade and I would like to say thank you to the Salvation Army for their band, and especially the people of Diss for their support at the service on Friday, at Sunday’s event and to the poppy sellers at various local supermarkets.

“Thanks also to those outlets that sold poppies and the various members of Diss Town Council, the army and air cadets and Royal British Legion who worked hard behind the scenes, plus Park Radio for allowing the Royal British Legion on air to talk about remembrance.”
