THE Millennium Tower ceiling and new organ casing at St Edmundsbury Cathedral ceiling and the auditorium at The Apex were both recognised with awards for their craftsmanship and quality at the annual meeting of The Bury Society last Thursday.

The awards were presented by outgoing society chairman Sarah Green and received by Jim Greaves on behalf of Hopkins Architects for The Apex and by Horry Parsons on behalf of all the craftsmen who had worked on the cathedral projects.
Prizes were also presented to the winners of the My Bury St Edmunds photographic competition, sponsored by Denny Brothers and organised to celebrate the society’s 40th anniversary by committee member Martyn Taylor.
The new society chairman is Alan Jary.
Mrs Green said it had been an honour and priviledge to lead the society into its 40th year.
