Two people have chosen ‘A jewel in the crown of Suffolk’ to be the tag for new welcome signs for Bury which should be installed by Christmas.

Bury in Bloom and the Bury Free Press teamed up to invite readers to chose a motto to go on 11 signs which will be placed at various points of entry to the town.

Angela and John Moore and Steven Moody came up with the winning entry chosen by judges, winning themselves vouchers for The Crown at Hartest. Some £12,000 has been provided to replace the existing signs thanks to funding from St Edmundsbury, the Town Council, OurBuryStEdmunds and Suffolk County Council. Mrs Moore is donating her prize to the shopping day being held in Lavenham on October 7 for Cancer Research UK.
