Diss Town Guide


The latest edition of the Diss Town Guide

The latest Diss Town Guide will soon be arriving free to every household in the town. The 21st edition covers all aspects of Diss life and is packed with information, including postal codes, a business directory and free map. There are articles about local girl Ethel Le Neve, who was involved in the Crippen murder 100 years ago, and Himalayan traveller Thomas Manning, with the bi-centenary of his journey coming up next year. The Guide, which has been edited by Basil Abbott since the 1980s, will be on sale at £1.95 in the Tourist Information Centre and other outlets.

    I am the current chair of Diss Decorative and Fine Arts Society. I would be grateful if you would reassure me that we have retained our entry in the new edition of the Town Guide. I am concerned that I have not been asked, as part of its revision and updating, whether this organisation would wish to remain , it would, and if it should bring its entry up-to-date.

      We have had an entry from your society, although I can’t recall from whom.

      Diss Decorative & Fine Arts Society
      We are a charitable society, founded in 1990, a member of the National Association of Fine Arts Society [NADFAS]. What brings us together is our mutual interest in the arts and conservation both of which are promoted through lectures and volunteering opportunities. We have more than 200 members and meet each month from September to June for an illustrated presentation on some topic drawn from a wide spectrum of decorative and fine arts subjects. We draw our monthly speakers from a pool that has been subject to rigorous selection by NADFAS. They are always of a high standard. Additionally we organise Special Interest Days, Visits and Tours for our members. Members can also become in various volunteering activities. Email:
