Christmas Colouring Fun

We had a wonderful response to our Kids table at the Christmas Fayre this year. Many budding artists enjoyed colouring the cards, showing great imagination and flair for colour. Here some photos of just a few of the happy contributors. 

Don't worry if you didn't get a chance to visit us, we have put all our Christmas themed cards up on our Activities page especially for you to download, print and colour in. (Can you recognise the Halstead buildings/landmarks featured as you walk round the town?)

We'd love to see your efforts so why not take a photo or scan and email them to us and we'll post some on this page. 

Great Bradfords School support 2023

Once again this year Great Bradfords School stepped forward to support Heritage 21st Century in the fight to "Save our Shelters". You may remember in previous years when the school children produced posters that were displayed through the town and were exhibited in our pop up gallery on Factory Terrace.  

This year they took up a new challenge to imagine the use for 3 of the shelters if and when they are saved. They were given a brief that they needed to be something that would encourage the Halstead community to visit and get benefit from the shelters in years to come. The ideas that came from them were truly imaginative and very difficult to choose a winner. They included ideas such as, a sensory room, arts centre, gaming room, a cinema, gardening club and cookery school.  The 3 winners were chosen as follows. 1st - Willow Young, who designed a sensory room for children to relax in and relieve anxiety and stresses of the world. 2nd - Evie Cunningham, who designed a room which could be used for sleep overs and fun events for groups. 3rd - Julia Narvaes, who designed an arts room for creating art from young people.  We would like to thank all the young people who took part for a fantastic effort. and to thank the school for once again supporting our struggle to save the shelters.  If we can make it to the point when the shelters are safe and we are in a sustainable position to create a community space within them, we hope to take forward all of these ideas.
