Halstead In Bloom

bloom.jpg The present Halstead in Bloom was formed in 1999 with the aim of clearing, cleaning and brightening Halstead for the benefit of residents, those who work in the Town and our many visitors.

We are a team of volunteers, and we have formed a strong partnership with Essex County Council, Braintree District Council and Halstead Town Council and this close co-operation has given the Town success in the Anglia in Bloom competition.

In 2004, 2005, 2006,2007 and 2008 Halstead was been awarded Silver-Gilt status being judged against other communities across the six counties of the East.  In 2009,2010,2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Halstead attained a Gold award, and was also judged Best Town.

FANTASTIC NEWS! We are pleased to announce that Halstead won GOLD FOR  Halstead and BEST TOWN in their category at the wards for Anglia in Bloom 2017.  

Well done to all that took part and helped this happen!
If you'd like to join this successful team, and can help with maintenance of floral displays, or pick up litter, or get involved on the fund raising/administrative side please contact our Chairman, Margaret Eskins on 01787 269443 or Secretary, Julia Smith on 01787 461806 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you can give just a little time your efforts will be well spent and Halstead will benefit.

The most important thing about Halstead in Bloom is HALSTEAD
