Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds has received The Green Flag Award from the national charity Keep Britain Tidy for the fifth time running.

This week marks the tenth anniversary of Love Parks Week which begins in time for the school summer holidays.

Many parks in the area are among the best in the country for cleanliness and safety.

Nowton Park, West Stow Country Park and Haverhill’s East Town Park have also received the award this year.

Chairman of Bury St Edmunds Town Council Andrew Speed, said: “The Town Council is delighted to provide these free events at Nowton Park this summer. With activities such as den making, laser combat, camouflage games, art and much more, there is absolutely no reason why parents or grandparents should hear the words ‘I’m bored’ this summer.”

There’s plenty of fun for the family with a variety of special events to attend. Abbey Gardens will be showcasing two outdoor theatre shows. Murder on the Terrence on July 27 at 7.30pm and Ratburger, based on the David Walliams book on August 30, 3pm to 7pm.
