Pupils from Sexton’s Manor Primary School, St Edmundsbury Primary School and students of child care at West Suffolk College carried out the planting, helped by veterans from the Suffolk Regiment and Angela Bussey from the Marie Curie charity also helped with the planting.

B&Q donated trowels.

The Suffolk Regimental barracks has a long standing tradition of an annual Daffodil Day on March 26 each year.

“The daffodils are said to have been there for a century and we hope that by planting even more bulbs, there will really be a host of golden daffodils next year,’ said Melanie Lesser, Bury in Bloom co-ordinator.

The planting session was held during an open day at the Suffolk Regimental Museum
