I’ve just read the Diss Express front page asking the question is Diss Worth a Tenner (December 5), and the answer is, of course it is.
There’s a reason why a ten pound note is brown with the number ten on it. For those of you about my age its a ten bob note, just what do you get for a tenner? Well you can’t get two gallons of petrol, you can’t get two packets of cigarettes, it won’t buy a round of drinks in a pub, so good on you Diss, get stuck in and build a garden going down to the Mere and link it with the park going round the Mere. How many market towns have got a lake in the middle? Just for a comparison for anti-Royals, if you think twice about a tenner a year for Diss, the whole Royal family costs the people of this country about the price of half a loaf of bread a year.
