The winners of the successful Magna Carta Barons Bollards competition have been presented with their prizes.

More than 130 correct entries were submitted for the contest to find 26 bollards around Bury St Edmunds town centre, each depicting a different baron who reportedly met in 1214 ahead of King John putting his seal on the Magna Carta.

It was organised by Bury Round Table and Ourburystedmunds, and promoted through the Bury Free Press.

Top junior winner Niamh Leeson was thrilled to be given an iPad mini. Sharon Ashton, of Great Whelnetham, was delighted to win the adult’s first prize, £50 of shopping vouchers.

Judith Peck, of Bury, was runner-up, and recieved shopping vouchers. Meanwhile, the junior runners-up prizes went to Joshua Ely, who won an iTunes voucher, Amalie Mager and Harry Mizen, who both won pens from Camps Stationery.

The Round Table’s Mark Daly said the contest encouraged people to spend time in the town and visit streets they wouldn’t necessarily have planned to.
