Potted plants have been appearing in Sudbury this week after one resident decided the town needed brightening up.

Locations have included the bus station and by the scene of devastation following the fire last week.

The Sudbury resident, who wants to remain anonymous, said: “I bought £60 worth of flowers and put them round town.”

Sadly more than half of the flowers have since been removed, believed to have been stolen.

“I put them round the town to brighten it up,” he said.

Locations include at the bus station and by the fencing that surrounds the destroyed and damaged properties and shops in Market Hill.

It’s a daily task, with the flowers brought to the various locations each morning and taken home again each night.

As well as trying to brighten up people’s day with his floral displays, the community-conscious gentleman has been cleaning up the streets, picking up litter and giving the town a general tidy up.

Ria Gardiner from Ree’s Kiosk, by the bus station in Sudbury, said: “He’s got over 150 likes on Facebook from people that think he’s great for doing what he’s doing.

“He’s one of a kind.”
