Local songwriter David Young will be entertaining us with his songs based on local news stories mixed with a little fiction from Diss and elsewhere in East Anglia. His feature song ‘Timeless Town’ takes us back to the curious incident in 2004 when the clock hands from St Mary’s Church in Diss went missing. Also featured is when the Christmas lights were vandalised, owner of Toybox Toys Roy Minshull dressed up as Ebenezer Scrooge and only managed to collect £5 for new lights, national newspapers branded Diss the meanest town in the land.
