POST OFFICE CLOSURE FOR A WEEK
The main post office building in Diss is to stay closed until early next week.
Builders have been called in to repair loose roof tiles above the entrance, damaged by the recent strong winds. The post office in Market Place has been cordoned off for safety reasons.
Alternative main post office services are available in Eye, Dickleburgh, Wortham and Garboldisham.
SECOND STORM DUE THIS WEEKEND
Another storm is on its way for the weekend.
Storm Dennis with strong winds of up to 50 miles an hour are expected in Norfolk and Suffolk throughout both Saturday and Sunday. There’s a warning of more disruption and possible damage to property and power cuts.
LITTER PICK RETURNS
A community litter campaign is about to get underway again in South Norfolk.
The Big Litter Pick is taking place in the area until May, with local people being urged to take part. Last year, about a thousand participants, including children, collected nearly 2,000 bags of rubbish and recycling material.
Any school or community group joining in has a chance to win £200.
TOWN STAY OUT OF PLAYOFF SPOT
Ipswich Town failed to get back into the play-off places in League One last night.
Their game at struggling AFC Wimbledon ended in a goalless draw, leaving Town still in seventh place and four games now without a win.
