Pupils from Roydon Primary School joined Dinsdale the duck to open a new exhibition at Diss Corn Hall.

A Brush with the Past opened last week, with the exhibition celebrating the town's industrial brush-making past.

It has been organised by the Eastern Region Media Community Interest Company (ERM CIC), along with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Year 5 students from Roydon showcased a stop-motion animation at the event.

Fiona Muller, an ERM CIC director, said: "About 140 people were there on the day and it was so nice to see people engaging with Diss' past, especially the younger generation."

Local historian Colin Howey and artist Maz Jackson gave talks at the launch, with a documentary exploring brush-making in Diss –produced by Diss Youth Group – also shown.
