New water bowser purchased for Bury St Edmunds’ Abbey Gardens
A new water bowser – which will be able to reach areas of Bury St Edmunds’ historic Abbey Gardens that were previously difficult to get to – has been bought.
The bowser has been purchased for the gardens after donations from Bury in Bloom, OurBuryStEdmunds, and the Abbey Gardens Friends, and locality budget awards from Suffolk county councillor Robert Everitt, and Bury town councillors Andrew Speed and Jo Rayner.
The new piece of equipment will be very useful in reaching areas which have previously been difficult to water such as the banks of the River Lark, the cathedral planters and near the ruins.
Previously, the gardening team were forced to drag out long hosepipes, which was very time consuming.
The bowser can also be used as a pressure washer for washing monuments, paving and landscape features such as bins and benches for special events and general maintenance.

The Bury in Bloom volunteers are hoping the new bowser will help to ensure the central beds in the gardens look their floral best ahead of the Anglia and Britain in Bloom judges visits in July.
