Diss Conservation Group

Diss Conservation


The Diss group cover the river from Redgrave & Lopham Fen to Billingford Mill and work in partnership with Scole Nature Trails Trust

The group began in 2011 in response to neglect and increasing litter in and around the River Waveney in Diss. Originally part of the River Care project by Anglian Water and Keep Britain Tidy, the group now works under the RWT banner.

We maintain the part of the River Waveney that comes through Diss. Our aim is to preserve the river and its surrounding wildlife habitats for the enjoyment of the local community.



Volunteers carry out regular maintenance in Frenze Beck and on the River Waveney. We also look after the wetland area and riverside paths behind the supermarkets in Diss.
Activities include practical habitat and footpath work, managing fallen trees in the river and litter picking. Data about local plants and animals is also recorded on a regular basis.
Volunteers meet every Monday morning at the Frenze Beck site.
New volunteers are always very welcome.
