Join the Bury St Edmunds trail
Think you know your Bury St Edmunds history? Put your knowledge to the test by taking part in a fun family trail around the town on Saturday (6).
The “Off the Bury Track” trail is designed to be an educational and fun event for all ages.
Those taking part will go on a self guided walk leading to local landmarks. Along the way they will answer questions not only about the town’s history but also on other more quirky town facts.
The event, which is in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, has been organised by 11 interns at West Suffolk councils.
Cllr Joanna Rayner, St Edmundsbury Borough Council Cabinet member for Leisure and Culture said: “This is a great way to raise awareness and celebrate the wonderful history and heritage we have here in Bury St Edmunds. This is something that the whole family can incorporate into their day while relaxing and shopping in Bury town centre. Plus it is raising money for a great local cause – so come along and join the trail.”
To enter simply pop along and speak to our team on Charter Square between 10am and 5pm on 6 August.
Everyone who completes the trail is entered into a prize draw with a family ticket to see the Chinese State Circus at The Apex among the top prizes.
Other prizes have been donated by; Abbeycroft Leisure, Abbeygate Cinema, Auntie Pam’s Sweet Shop, Baileys2, Bury Bowl, Glasswells, Greene King, Odyssey, Ipswich Town FC, Paddy & Scott’s, Palmers Department Store, Scandinavia Coffee House, Stephen John salon , Susette’s Flowers, Sunrise and West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village.
