Opening of the World War 1 Trail in Bury St Edmunds


Dignitaries including Bury St Edmunds MP Jo Churchill and the mayor of St Edmundsbury Margaret Marks are to attend the formal opening of the World War 1 Trail, in Bury St Edmunds, on Saturday, July 21.


It is taking place at 10.30am in the Abbey Gardens with other people associated with the trail also due to attend including representatives of the My WiSH Charity, Our Bury St Edmunds, the businesses improvement group in the town, and Treatt, who are sponsoring the initiative.


It comes after the launch of the trail earlier this month which took place at the Greene King Beer Café.


There are a total of 18 pieces of iconic artwork now in the town which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of the 1914-1918 conflict.


It’s being organised by Our Bury St Edmunds and the My WiSH Charity with funds raised going to the charity’s Every Heart Matters appeal 


It is aiming to raise £500,000 to help create a fully integrated cardiac centre at the West Suffolk Hospital and runs from July 21 to Armistice Day, November 11, with an auction taking place to sell off all of the pieces to go to the appeal with a competition also being organised for people to find the displays in the town.


The West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is investing £5.2m in developing a state of the art cardiac suite that will provide quicker access to more treatments, but the £500,000 My WiSH Charity is hoping to raise will lead to the whole unit, which is currently fragmented on different floors, being brought together in one purpose-built centre.


If you want to support the Every Heart Matters appeal go to the website and if you would like to donate to the appeal you can do so by going to or text EHMA17 £10 to 70070.
