Residents of the small village of Gissing, six miles north of Diss, joined together on Friday, July 14 to officially open their brand new community building.

Villagers were joined by special guests including the former FA chairman Greg Dyke, BBC Look East weather presenter Julie Reinger and MP for South Norfolk Richard Bacon.

Rose Eddington, the chairman of Heart of Gissing - the group behind the project - said: “It was very rewarding to see so many people here at our official opening and to hear how impressed they were with our building.

“Richard Bacon MP, councillor Beverley Spratt and Greg Dyke all had hugely complimentary things to say about our village and what we have achieved here.

“The new building has certainly got off to a very good start.”
