Bury Society events 2022

February saw the Bury Society live events finally emerge from the shadows of the Covid pandemic.

The annual Winter Lunch witnessed a record number of members and their guests, treated to the usual high standard of catering from Andrea and her team at Elite Cakes and buffets. We were also fortunate to have as the guest speaker Charlie Haylock who entertained the room with tales of his time as dialect coach to Ralph Fiennes, star of the Netflix film “The Dig”. Who could have imagined that there were so many variations of the Suffolk dialect as you move across the county?

Saturday, April 23, was the date of a coffee morning for members, at the United Reformed Church, in Whiting Street.

The evening of June 9 will see the first live Annual General Meeting in two years at the Unitarian Meeting House, in Churchgate Street (6.30pm to 9pm).[details below]

We are also able to host two “out of town” excursions this year, the first being a coach trip to Diss and Earsham Hall, on Thursday, July 7. [details below]

In September, Thursday 8th, another outing is planned to visit Holt and Sheringham on the North Norfolk coast and the day includes an excursion on the famous heritage Poppy Railway. [details below]

As publicised, 2022 sees the much delayed Abbey 1000 celebrations in the town and the Bury Society will be involved in the Community Day being held in the Abbey Gardens on Saturday, July 16. Volunteers will be handing out goodie bags to our visitors and we will be working in conjunction with the Bury St Edmunds Association of Registered Tour Guides to ensure everyone appreciates the rich heritage of our town.

Returning to some semblance of normality has proved, and continues to prove challenging, but the MCE committee members have been working hard to bring back live events for all our members and their friends.
