Sudbury in Bloom’s activities, including the monthly working parties, are currently under review. Please check back for updates.
The Dye Garden has been laid out with a new path through the area behind the structure. This allows both for visitors to explore and also to make future maintenance of the borders simpler!
Sudbury in Bloom help to maintain various planted areas around Sudbury and work with volunteers and other groups to make the most of the town’s floral assets. We hope that you enjoy your visit to the garden which sits on the route between the Heritage Centre at the town hall and Gainsborough House.
The work was supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government without which it would not have been possible.
The development of weavers’ piece has been supported by The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government Pocket Park Grant.
Project management sponsored by SB Surveyors and with support from Babergh District Council and Sudbury Town Council.

Our team of volunteers got Weavers Piece in North Street car park - also known as Siam Gardens - looking ship-shape ahead of the reopening 11am this Saturday.
The new installation was revealed from under its protective covers, the posts commemorating Sudbury’s weaving heritage got a fresh lick of paint, and lots of new planting went in, including spring bulbs donated by Bridge Farm Plants of Corn Craft, Monks Eleigh, primroses and herbs.
The next working party is Tuesday 10th March, at Siam Gardens in North Street car park.
Final preparation for our official opening of the gardens on 14th March.
Come and join us any time between 10am and noon for a planting, weeding and tidying session. All equipment provided. We look forward to seeing you!
On Tuesday 17th March we will be at the drought garden on Newton Road, heading out of town towards the Esso garage.
