The overgrown shrubbery on The Angel Hotel has become a familiar sight for both visitors and residents of Bury St Edmunds.

But now the glowing mass which clings to the outside of the hotel on Angel Hill has diminished.

And it’s thanks to the hotel carrying out maintenance work on the building which they regularly schedule for the autumn.

A cherry picker had been stationed outside the building for the workers to carry out their pruning but that has now been removed.

Lynn Cowan, operations director for the owners Gough Hotels, said: “The spring/summer flowering plants in the window boxes are currently being replaced with plants that will make a good show over the autumn/winter period.

“Once they are planted up the boxes will go up again – hopefully, in a few days.

“And we have been working with the council to ensure that our floral planter colours next year will link us directly to the end of the Second World War Trail in Bury St Edmunds in 2018.”
