Award is deserved

Have your say

It was wonderful to read that the Church Walks residents in Bury have received the It’s Your Neighbourhood award (Bury Free Press, January 6). It has always been a great pleasure to walk in their part of town and to view their floral displays and buy their produce.

What a contrast their association and their community spirit provides to Ouida’s dismissal of Bury St Edmunds in the 19th century as: “This petty-bourgeis town where the inhabitants must perforce ring their own doorbells lest they rust from disuse.”
