As Bury St Edmunds awaits its floral fate in the In Bloom contest, businesses are being encouraged to snap up the campaign’s renowned hanging baskets next year.
The town will discover how it has fared in Anglia in Bloom and if it will go forward to compete nationally on September 10.
Meanwhile, organisers are encouraging more businesses to follow the lead of Palmers fashion store which displays an array of eye catching hanging baskets.
The store, in Butter Market, has supported the Bury Society’s Bury in Bloom campaign for 18 years.
Giselle Roadley-Battin, store manager, said: “It’s so important that more businesses support Bury in Bloom because it’s the community of the town. This sort of thing attracts people to the store.”
Next year the baskets will have a Magna Carta theme for the 800th anniversary celebrating the town’s links with the charter. For further information about the baskets contact campaign manager Melanie Lesser on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.buryinbloom.org.uk
