Diss Town Council will still be taking residents’ enquiring via Email and telephone but meetings have been suspended for the “foreseeable” future.

A spokesman said: “Councillors and staff from Diss Town Council are encouraging all members of its community to follow the latest government guidance regarding the coronavirus.

“We hope that with the recommended guidelines, the impact of Covid-19 can be mitigated in Diss and the surrounding parishes.”

The council, which owns the Diss Youth and Community Centre, has apologised to hirers of the hall due to making the “difficult decision” to cancel all events.
