Second clean-up for River Waveney campaign
The campaign to improve the River Waveney continued to make good progress following a second clean-up event at the weekend.
A 16-strong group equipped with litter pickers participated in the clean-up of the section of the river between Denmark Bridge and the Morrisons and Tesco supermarkets in Victoria Road, Diss.
The event was the second organised by the River Waveney Association, which was launched at Diss Corn Hall in October, aiming to improve the river between Denmark Bridge and Stuston Common.
The long-term objective is to link up with like-minded residents in neighbouring towns to form a trust conserving the whole length of the river.
Diss town councillor Beth Dewhurst, a member of the association, said one idea that had been mooted for the section of river behind the two supermarkets was to provide an observatory platform for wildlife enthusiasts, although this was at an early stage and nothing had been decided.

She added: 'It is still very early days for the Association, but so far so good. The observation platform is one idea for improving the river, but is still very much at the idea stage at the moment.'
The clean-ups are held on the second Saturday of the month.
