YOUNG people in West Suffolk are being encouraged to take part in a roundabout design competition to mark 25 years of Bury in Bloom.

Youngsters aged between 16 and 21 can submit original designs reflecting the theme, From Abbey to arc, for the King’s Road and Risbygate Street roundabouts.

The King’s Road roundabout will represent the history of Bury St Edmunds – or the Abbey – and the Risbygate Street roundabout will reflect the arc – or the present and future of the town.

Julia Rackowe, Bury in Bloom campaign manager, said: “You don’t have to be studying design or horticulture to enter this competition. It’s your ideas we will be looking for.”

Bury St Edmunds Town Council and roundabout sponsors Havebury Housing Partnership and Suffolk Housing Society are funding the competition which will present iPads to the winners.

St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s parks department is providing professional advice.

The roundabout designs will be in place by the autumn, completing the Parkway face-lift.

Entrants can submit designs for one or both of the roundabouts.
