Personal Message from the Town Mayor

"I would like to express my sincerest sympathies to those who have lost loved ones, and those who have been debilitated by COVID-19; my thoughts are with you all.  

Community, Communication and Kindness - the themes that were the basis for my first year as Mayor are highlighted more now than ever!  I have witnessed first hand over the past few weeks our community spirit, the use of different forms of communication to aid our work and connecting with loved ones, as well as the kindness of strangers through stunning acts of altruism".

SONIA BROWNE

Councillor Sonia Browne has been elected the Mayor of Diss for the second year in succession. 

Sonia is looking forward to fundraising in aid of Norfolk's Big C Cancer Charity and Leeway Domestic Violence and Abuse Services.  

Councillor Browne has already supported both charities through her work and fundraising and would like to give back to two charities that have been so supportive to her and to so many in our community.

We hope you’ll support Sonia in her chosen fundraising efforts this year!

Her theme for this new mayoral year continues to be that of, 'Community, Communication and Kindness'.
