12/12/2018Police Advice on how to protect your business from crime Protecting your business from crime is extremely important and should be part of the day to day running of any company.

12/12/2018Police Advice on Credit Card FraudThere have recently been several reports of stolen credit card details being used to purchase goods in-store. The offenders will distract staff after the amount has been entered into the card payment device and then key in the stolen card details rather than using the chip and PIN facility. If staff do not check the signature that is then requested, the offender is able to leave the premises with the fraudulently obtained goods. Please use the following advice to reduce the risk of fraud occurring.

06/12/2018Come to Bury videoYou may have seen on social media over the past week that we have created a video to encourage people to visit Bury for all their pre-Christmas requirements. As you would expect we have targeted our messages to those who live within a reasonable travelling distance of Bury but however targeted this approach is there will be large numbers of people who fall into this category who we may have missed. What we would love you to be able to do is to share this link with your friends, family, staff and most importantly customers. We will do all we can, on your behalf, to spread the word about our lovely town but just think how much more we can all achieve, if you all shared this 90 second video with your customer databases and/or via your social media accounts. Thanks, in advance, of your support in promoting our town to potential customers for yourselves.

Step up to the plate and prepare to have your taste buds teased when the Our Bury St Edmunds Food and Drink Festival takes place over the Bank Holiday weekend. Celebrity chefs, a farmers' market, local restaurant demonstrations and scores of stalls selling everything from paella to prosecco and beers to brownies will make the event a feast of foodie fun for all the family.


The FREE entry event promises two days of fantastic flavours as well as a host of different family attractions including the urban beach, mini-farm and street entertainment. Top of the menu are two of the country's most popular chefs. On Sunday 26 August James Tanner returns to the festival to give three demonstrations in the Stoves Cookery Theatre and on Bank Holiday Monday and Paul Rankin is back for the second year running to share some of his favourite dishes. 


For younger visitors, there will be a range of children's activities in and around the town centre, including cake decorating workshops, face painting, the mini-farm in Abbeygate Street and the beach complete with deckchairs and Punch and Judy at Charter Square in the arc, along with fairground rides and free street entertainment across both days.
