Who We Are
We are a volunteer run group based in Halesworth strongly supported by Halesworth Town Council and Waveney Borough Council working as part of the RHS "Britain in Bloom" competition.
With the significant help of local people and businesses we aim to improve the environmental quality of Halesworth and the surrounding area.
This website has been put together by Noah Gonzales winner of The Halesworth in Bloom Student's Bursary 2016.
He is not, however responsible for any mistakes in content - that is the responsibility of the Leadership of HIB.
Our goals are to improve the beauty of the Halesworth with local community horticultural projects that help improve the looks of the area as well as supporting biodiversity and protecting our precious resources of water and peat, while increasing community participation. As a group we encourage everyone and especially young people to participate and celebrate our horticulture heritage.
