The SCC Social Club, Demolition of Diss Publishing and Grandad has a Burn Up, Ipswich, Diss and Brome - 2nd April 2005

First off, there's a trip to Suffolk County Council Social Club for a few beers. There are two similar photos here, which breaks the repetition rule, but photos of the SCC bar in daylight are rare enough, so there you go. Then, the demolition of part of the Diss Publishing Bookshop - the most radical thing to happen to Diss since the building of Safeway in the 90s - occurs. Whilst taking photos, one of the builders spots Nosher taking photos and invited him in. He had lived in Diss for 62 years and could remember when the now-demolished building was actually a garage and petrol station on the High Street. Finally, Nosher's old man turns up to help out with a bit of gardening
