A group of school pupils and volunteers returned to see daffodils which they planted in Bury St Edmunds nearly 18 months ago.

Students from Sexton’s Manor Primary School, St Edmundsbury Primary School and West Suffolk College planted the daffodil bulbs in the woods behind the Suffolk Regimental Museum in October 2016.

The planting in 2016 was organised by the town’s horticultural organisation – Bury in Bloom – whose volunteers also joined pupils last week along with representatives from the Suffolk Regiment and Marie Curie to see how the flowers had progressed.

Clients from the Dementia Hub also joined the pupils and volunteers to promote the Suffolk Regiment’s Daffodil Day, which took place today.

The Suffolk Regiment Museum, next to West Suffolk College, is open every Wednesday and the first Sunday of every month from 9.30am-3.30pm. Entry is free.
