The Bury in Bloom organisation said they were grateful to Bury St Edmunds Town Council for sponsoring the baskets, especially this year.

“The West Suffolk Council team headed up by Jason Baldwin (you may remember him from the summer) take great care putting up the 48 20kg baskets.
“West Suffolk Council have also done a stunning job with street-level planters so look out for them and enjoy. We look forward with hope to better days in 2021.”

He said the planting was to “lift people’s spirits” as much as anything else.
