LETTER - ‘Former Diss Infants School building deserves better than demolition’
I was pleased that the future of the former Diss Infants School is a matter of concern for many Diss residents, but was dismayed by Mr Minshull’s statement “The first priority is that it should be demolished and tidied” (What next for old infants school site in Diss?, July 3).
Diss is spending several million pounds on the Heritage Triangle and work at the Corn Hall, rightly recognising its historical and architectural significance.
Diss Infants School is another building designed and built by Corn Hall architect George Atkins which surely makes it worthy of a fate other than demolition. His other school serves the town as part of Diss Church of England Junior School and is still in use after more than 150 years.
