AN INFLUENTIAL society that strives to maintain the face of Bury St Edmunds has celebrated its 40th anniversary.

Members of the Bury Society – including several past chairmen – gathered at the Unitarian Meeting House on Saturday to hear a speech from founding chairman David Dymond.

Mr Dymond, a published historian, founded the society in 1971 as a reaction to plans to transform St John’s Street.

He said: “The society is full of people who are articulate and care for the town.

Current chairman Sarah Green, said: “The society has been doing great work for 40 years – what we need now is a new generation of members.”
