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.
Our team of volunteers successfully cleared the full length of the Mill Street Car Park garden of its weeds at our two-hour workshop.
Last week’s rain had softened the ground meaning the weeds came out without a fight. We also cut back the Buddleias and trimmed some of the perennials too.
We hope you will be able to join our next working party – look out for details here and on our Facebook page.
The next Sudbury in Bloom working party is on Tuesday 18th February.
We will be weeding and tidying the Mill Street car park garden (near Cross Street), opposite Mill Hotel.
Come and join us any time between 10am and noon. All equipment provided. We look forward to seeing you!

A note from Chairman Chris Storey:
We were really delighted to be awarded Silver in the Anglia in Bloom judging this year. All of the volunteer effort and all of the planning and work has been recognised and huge thanks are due to all of the volunteers who have helped to keep Sudbury looking great throughout the year.
We were also delighted that Eden Rose Coppice were recognised as best in the Anglia in Bloom region in the category of Garden for Special Needs Award. We were all hugely impressed by the visit to Eden Rose Coppice and the dedication and commitment of the team there. What a wonderful way for Anglia in Bloom to recognise this dedicated organisation!
It is sometimes difficult to realise how fortunate we are to have not just a wonderful town centre but also Eden Rose Coppice, The Meadows, Belle Vue Gardens and so many other facilities within close proximity to the town centre.
The library also has a small garden area and looks after a wheelbarrow outside the front and this further effort to brighten the facility for visitors and also to keep the Market Hill interesting is a credit to staff at the library and the Tourist Information Centre.
Well done to all – your work is appreciated!

We were very pleased to have the Mayor of Sudbury, Sue Ayers, visit us at Perrywood Garden Centre to help with the launch of our first wheelbarrow competition.
Our kind sponsors of prizes, Perrywood, are themselves a great source of inspiration in the garden and we are delighted to be working with them on this project.
