THE public can inspect the site for a new Diss community woodland on Wednesday evening next week.

The Diss Community Woodland Project have agreed with The Quaker Trust to buye three meadows on Factory Lane which adjoins the edge of the town.

The purchase will not be completed until later this year but the present tenant of the land, Dick Seaman, has agreed to open the meadows so that interested supporters may have a preview. There will be a conducted tour at 7pm and members of the steering group will be on hand to answer questions.

Leaving Diss via Louies Lane, turn into Factory Lane close to the water tower and the meadows are on the right hand side just after Appletree Lane and almost opposite the back of the football pitch. There is no car parking near the site and local people are asked to walk. The nearest public car park is on Shelfanger Road.

Although this is a project that has originated in Diss, the land is in the parish of Roydon. Both Diss Town Council and Roydon Parish Council are supporting the project and Diss Town Council has recently made a grant of £250 towards the first year's insurance premium. For donations or further information please contact the Secretary, Richard Pither on 01379 652825.
