Crowning Glory Bury in Bloom sculpture is unveiled in the Abbey Gardens
A jewel in the crown of Bury St Edmunds created through community spirit during lockdown was unveiled on Tuesday.
Crowning Glory, a sculpture of recycled materials, is now on display in the Abbey Gardens until the end of September.
The sculpture was commissioned by Bury in Bloom as part of the town’s entry into the Anglia in Bloom online competition. It is in the running for the best display using recycled materials category.
The Crafty Foxes invited people to decorate floral jewels using plastic bottle bases – and received more than 500.
Inspired by the crown of St Edmund, these have been joined to create a two metre sculpture near the Abbey Gardens entrance.
Bury in Bloom is also entering the best community effort, best large container planting, best public art and best woodland/conservation project categories.
