Diss litter picking group hopes to pick up new members as it starts its quest to clean up the town.




A new litter picking group in Diss is hoping to pick up new members after assembling for its first meeting.

Created by George Waterman last week, three months after moving to Diss, the group has scheduled its first meet for July 10 at 10am outside Co-Op funeral care on Stanley Road.

Mr Waterman said: “I grew up in Pulham nearby, where I took part in litter picking organised by the Pennoyer Centre. That gave me the idea to start a litter picking group for Diss, plus the volume of rubbish I would see both in the built up part of town and the surrounding countryside.

“The group intends to meet once a month. We have support from Karen Sheen from the Co-Op as well as support from Diss Town Council in disposing of the rubbish once it’s been collected. We also have support from local businesses with offers of equipment, although we encourage new members to bring their own equipment if they can.”
