A River Runs Through It…

Collectively, the people of Diss seem almost unaware of the River Waveney, wending its way behind the big stores and the main through road. Look at the way some other towns and cities have made a feature out of their rivers and you will see how we are missing out. In the 1980s, The Gipping was one of the seven most polluted freshwater rivers in England and Ipswich Docks a redundant wasteland. Now it’s a different story…
Obviously Diss isn’t looking for this sort of development, but how lovely it would be to walk along the river to Fair Green!

    This would be a great community project. Imagine if teams of volunteers turned up at weekends to clean up the river. If we could raise some money we could extend the walkways and create picnic areas. it could be lovely!
