Diss Town Council welcomes Jim Welch
A new councillor has been co-opted on to Diss Town Council.
Jim Welch, of Denmark Street, was officially welcomed to the authority at a meeting on Wednesday, November 13.
He becomes the 12th member of the council, with two roles still vacant.
Mr Welch, who worked in the Royal Air Force for 25 years, moved to Diss four years ago after being stationed at RAF Honington.
He was previously involved with the supporters’ trust of Kettering Town Football Club.
Mr Welch said his wish “to give back to the community and to help local people” were his main reasons for wanting to be a councillor.
He also wants to support veterans and disabled people.
