The Diss Raft Race, Diss Mere, Norfolk - 6th July 1991

As part of the carnival, there's a Raft Race on Diss Mere. Various teams assemble ramshackle craft and take to the Mere - one of England's deepest lakes- to battle it out in various, not always legitimate, ways. Nosher's next-door neighbour from Stuston, Jan, is representing as part of her work team, the Diss Ambulance station, with their craft "The Hoverlance". There are also a couple of photos from a quick trip to the Harbour Inn in Southwold, with Geoff and Brenda.
