The Bury St. Edmunds Society is a charity open to everyone who cares about Bury St Edmunds’ past, present and future. We provide a regular newsletter, talks, visits and other social events throughout the year. The Bury St Edmunds Society was formed in 1971 after St John’s Street was threatened with demolition. We have provided important local campaigns for our town ever since then, like Magna Carta 800 and Bury in Bloom.
Our aim is to ensure that the town continues to grow and prosper while remaining a beautiful place in which to live, work or visit. We believe that our heritage is worth maintaining, any change should enhance the town and collectively we can make a difference.
Our objectives are to aid the enjoyment and appreciation of all who use the town by fostering its heritage and character; encouraging a balance of the old and the new; informing and engaging communities on issues that impact on our local environment.
