Attractive new planters have been installed in Bury St Edmunds’ historic Chequer Square, near the Norman Tower.

Bury in Bloom, St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Suffolk County Council worked together to deliver the project, which councillors Joanna Rayner and Andrew Speed helped fund through their locality budgets.

Melanie Lesser, of Bury in Bloom coordinator, which has planned a series of local improvement projects across the town in celebration of its 30th anniversary, said: “I am delighted that Chequer Square in this historic part of our lovely town now has a floral display to do justice to the surrounding attractive historic buildings.

“Local residents were consulted about the new planters and were delighted to have the old damaged planters replaced and the area tided up ready for the spring.”

The planters have built in water reservoirs so will need less watering during the summer months.
