On Wednesday evening (9th December) the annual torchlight procession and carol service was held in Halstead. This is an extremely popular event with people carrying ‘real flame’ torches from the memorial at the top of the High Street down to the public gardens where a carol service was then held. The service was led by Rev John Blore and Halstead mayor David Hume.
The night was extremely well attended with well over a 1000 people taking part. From babies and toddlers to parents and grandparents they were all there enjoying the festive spirit.
Prior to the event Halstead Town Council commissioned me to document the procession for use on their website, I was also commissioned by the Newsquest Media Group to photograph the event for images to be used in local newspapers. Ten of these images have since been used on a double page spread in the Halstead Gazette.
