SLIDESHOW: The best Diss Express pictures of the last ten years

For more than ten years our roving photographer Mark Bullimore has documented the triumphs and disasters and the sad and joyous moments of news in this part of the world.

But 2014 has been the last the Diss Express will see of his talents, as he moves on to new pastures.

Mark has racked up so many miles as he travels our patch, that he could have travelled around the world six times.

These two pages are pictures picked by Mark personally as some of his favourites.

Diss Express editor Luke Page said: “Mark can always be relied upon to get a shot which can tell a story in itself.

“His attention to detail is there for all to see and the perfectionist in him has resulted in news photography of the highest order. With his miles covered the people he has met, he is probably one of this paper’s most recognisable faces .

“We all will miss him and his talents greatly.”

Mark said: “I would like to thank everybody that I have photographed over the past ten years whilst working for the Diss Express.

“Over my time here I have been lucky in my job with it allowing me pictures of anybody and everybody from the Prime Minister one day to a person who’s celebrating their 100th birthday the next, each and every job is unique and every day different.

“From the characters in the local area such as Pete Gillings, who has always been up for getting a great picture from his many dealings in the scrap trade to seeing the revival of the Diss Carnival, the Royal Anglians being given the Freedom of the Town as people turned out to see the parade, right down to the Classes of the Week, which were always fun and a challenge to photograph at times.

“Through to the many sports throughout the year from the cold winters covering the football and rugby to the cricket in the warmer summer months and each time loving it all the time.

“It will be sad to go, but after a decade here it’s time to move on and leave a great team at the paper to continue the great work that I have been a part of.”
