Halesworth Greens

Halesworth Greens, L to R, Michael Imison, Nick Hoare, Rachel Kellett, Kim Hoare, Chris Hart, Annette Dunning (February 2022)

The Halesworth Greens ‘patch’ includes the town of Halesworth and the surrounding villages of Blyford, Brampton with Stoven, Frostenden, Holton, Sotherton, Spexhall, Uggeshall, Wangford with Henham, Westhall, Wissett, and Wrentham.

We achieved results through getting Annette, our first Green County Councillor, elected in 2021 and by working hard to cement the Green presence still further at the forthcoming District Elections in 2023.

Our work in the community

We are involved in many community-based activities and collaborations, including:

  • working with Edgar Sewter Primary school on the Halesworth TerraCycle recycling group (in pre-COVID days)
  • we helped to set up the monthly Repair Café at Halesworth Library
  • we hold regular Green Drinks and wider gatherings to share and develop ideas for improving our patch of Suffolk, whether through political or community-based action.
A gathering of Halesworth Greens in the Wood October 2021 – well wrapped up!

We win elections

After coming close to winning a district seat in 2019, with Annette Dunning standing we won our first Green Suffolk County Council seat in 2021 by a substantial majority, and are now part of the official opposition.
