Growing Well residents receive a neighbourhood award from Bury in Bloom Irene Webber, Lynda Seldis, Julia Rackowe,Annie Page

A town centre street has shown how it can not only grow flowers and shrubs but also its community.

This week Growing Well in Well Street, Bury St Edmunds, was presented with the Royal Horticultural Society’s It’s Your Neighbourhood award.

This recognises small communities who enhance their surroundings.

As well as improving front gardens and adding window boxes residents donated planters and troughs to charities in the street and helped elderly residents with their gardens.

Annie Page, secretary of Growing Well, said: “It’s as much about growing our community as growing plants.”
