Every year, Diss Town Council awards the Honoured Citizen and Junior Good Citizen to members of our community who have dedicated their time for the good of others. Nominees range from community group leaders to that neighbour who is always ready to lend a hand to help others!

Nominations for the 2017 Honoured and Junior Good Citizens are now closed.

There was a joint award for Honoured Citizen 2017, given to Mr Harold Rackham, and Ms Beth Dewhurst.
