Nominations have opened for the 2019 Diss Honoured Citizen and Junior Good Citizen awards.

Diss Town Council awards the titles each year to members of the community who have dedicated time for the good of others.

Last year’s honoured citizen winners were Jack Bell and Jamie Scales for saving the life of a customer at Betfred, while Reuben Botwright and Kieran Murphy were named junior honoured citizens for their work in the community.

In a special award, Armed Forces veteran Sergeant Duncan Slater was made an Honorary Freeman of the Town of Diss.

Nominees for honoured citizen can range from community group leaders to individuals ready to lend a hand to help others. The junior award is for any young person of school age who attends school in Diss.

This year’s winners will be presented with their awards at the annual town meeting at Diss Youth and Community Centre in Shelfanger Road on Thursday, May 9.
