Diss Conservation Group


The Diss group cover the river from Redgrave & Lopham Fen to Billingford Mill and work closely with the Scole Nature Trails Trust. Set up in 2011 in response to neglect and increasing litter in and around the river, it was originally part of the River Care project by Anglian Water and Keep Britain Tidy. The group now works under the RWT banner to maintain the part of the river that passes through Diss. Our aim is to protect wildlife habitat and enhance the river for the enjoyment of the local community.


Frenze Beck


The group maintains the Frenze Beck nature reserve off Sawmills Road and the riverside paths and wetland area behind the supermarkets in Diss. Activities include removing debris from the river, managing trees and other vegetation, picking up litter and building habitats. Data about the local plants, birds and other animal populations is also gathered regularly. Volunteers meet every Monday morning at the Frenze Beck site.
