Bury St Edmunds cemetery bench is a tribute to NHS staff and key workers
A bench thanking NHS staff and key workers has been installed at Bury St Edmunds cemetery.
The blue bench at the cemetery, in Kings Road, is intended as 'a memorial to the times we are living through'.
Another bench has been installed at the cemetery in Haverhill.
Cllr John Griffiths, leader of West Suffolk Council, said: "Our cemeteries are also places of reflection and the benches are provided for visitors for moments of quiet contemplation.
"We have installed two, one each in our two cemeteries in Haverhill and Bury St Edmunds, as a memorial to the times we are living through, and the many ways families and loved ones who have been affected and supported one another.
"They also acknowledge the efforts of NHS and key workers and will serve as reminders in years to come, when all the rainbow signs have come down and we are hopefully living more normal lives, that we have come through this together."
