A Diss historian has searched through his vast collection of Diss memorabilia to create a calendar for charity.

Dennis Cross, a retired builder, has lived and worked in Diss all his life and has watched it change through the years.

He now collects postcards and photos which show Diss through the years.

Having made a calendar two years ago, which raised nearly £1,500, Mr Cross thought to make one for the up-coming year to raise money for The Big C charity.

Many of the pictures featured in the calender have never been seen before and are accompanied by nostalgic tickets and forms that were used back in the day.

Mr Cross said: 'I have already sold around 150 and that is just from word of mouth. People said they enjoyed my last calender so decided to make another for the coming year.'

They are available from Mr Cross on 01379 651897 for £9.
