Halesworth Greens

Halesworth Greens started two years ago as a small group of people wanting to make a difference, and since then have embraced a number of different activities to pursue. Besides our political arm (supporting our candidate Annette Dunning for the forthcoming County Council elections in May), these are focused on community activities within Halesworth and the surrounding towns and villages. Many people will know us from the recycling project TerraCycle Halesworth run in conjunction with Edgar Sewter School (currently on pause during coronavirus).

A "Plastic Free Halesworth" campaigning project recently embraced the issues around proposed artifical grass .

There is work in progress to look at areas throughout the town of Halesworth that might be suitable for "re-wilding", with the aim of creating a model that could be adopted by surrounding villages.

We are a friendly group of people, pooling rich diverse skills, to make a positive difference to our local environment. We are keen to work in collaboration with others to achieve the most for our communities.

The Halesworth Team

Halesworth Greens are working towards a fair and sustainable society, through campaigning on Green Party issues and by getting Green candidates elected to both East Suffolk District Council and Suffolk County Council.

We are an active group in Halesworth, and part of the well established Waveney Green Party.

Current campaign projects include backing TerraCycle local collection events, examining rewilding opportunities in the area, improving the local cycling network, and starting a plastic-free Halesworth campaign.

Cycle Networks - Autumn 2020

Working with existing cycling projects in Halesworth, including the Neighbourhood Plan, and embracing the COVID-19 government incentive schemes, we aim to promote bicycling in and around Halesworth centre connecting up different cycling routes of the town, and integrating with existing cycle networks to surrounding villages. This is to encourage people to travel using non-car modes to access home, school, employment, services and facilities. Project led by Diane Green

Rewilding Suffolk

Halesworth residents are looking forward to the results of the re-wilding surveys currently being undertaken by the Town Council. This summer saw reduced mowing of verges around the town allowing wildflowers to grow. Cutting out the use of pesticides is also under consideration.
