The fete was organised to bring the new Beaulieu community together and provide the opportunity for residents to meet their neighbours.The event offered something for everyone, including local stalls, traditional funfair games, BBQ, fun food cart, ice cream and face painting.In advance of the opening of ‘The Green Man’ in Howe Street near Chelmsford later this summer, ‘The Green Man’ pop-up ‘Great British Pub’, gave residents an exclusive opportunity to try out traditional treats prepared by Michelin starred chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin including Cumbrian sausage rolls and venison scotch eggs.

The Galvin team and Countryside were delighted to be judges of Beaulieu’s very own ‘Bake Off’ with its cake making competition receiving a spectacular range of homemade entries.Keen bakers were competing for three top prizes, the winner having the opportunity to ‘Host a Roast’ in one of ‘The Green Man’s’ private dining rooms for up to eight guests.

Kelly Hollbrook, winner of the Beaulieu Fete Bake Off, comments: "We're really impressed with Beaulieu. It's amazing what Countryside have planned for the development and we are looking forward to seeing it all come together. Today has been lovely, we were one of the first people to move in so it's been nice to finally meet our neighbours. We're delighted that we won the Beaulieu Fete bake off! We definitely weren't expecting it, seeing as we were all fighting over it in the kitchen this morning trying to make it together!"
