Why the arrows?

Have your say

I ADMIRE the workmanship of the new St Edmund statue in Parkway, Bury St Edmunds, but why does it have to be filled with arrows? Surely St Edmund could be respected and commemorated by a statue of him in life?

There is enough violence in the world still, without being reminded of some people’s cruelty from centuries ago.

I would hate my granddaughter to see this statue when she visits me and I feel sorry that children who live here have to see it and its message every time they pass that way.
