Neal Liu, owner of Diss’ popular Chinese takeaway/restaurant approached Diss Town Council recently with the idea of wanting to celebrate Chinese New Year in the heart of Diss with a fab chinese lantern display on St Nicholas Street.
Supported by Heritage Triangle Traders and the Town Council, Neal’s idea became a reality and has been a real hit with the community.
Neal ordered the lanterns especially from China to mark the occasion and wanted to do something different in the town. He told us, “I wanted to share celebrations of Chinese New Year with the community of Diss! It’s something different for the town to enjoy.”
Chinese New Year officially begins on Friday 16th February 2018. We think you’ll agree that they add a great pop of colour to St Nicholas Street! Well done Happy Palace!
