Welcome to our first anniversary edition of Around Town Magazine. It’s amazing how quick this year has past! I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers and advertisers for your support. Thank you to Kelly Plume, Reverend Paul Carr and Neil Sumner for their columns in the magazine. As well as Billericay Rugby Club and Cricket Club for their regular contributions. Feedback from you our readers, tells us that we have the balance and blend right. My thanks also goes to the team at Around Town who have worked hard to get the magazine produced every month. Our efforts to support and promote the local community have lead us to employ an additional three local people to help in the production of the magazine. In December we are launching our second magazine and hope to continue the Around Town success in another local community.

BILLERICAY CRICKET CLUB Est. 1875

Planning is already underway to improve on the 3rd place achieved by the 1st XI in division 2 of the SNEL league in the 2013 season. Nothing short of promotion to Division 1 in 2014 will be acceptable. To support this and a sustainable future Billericay CC is concentrating on their youth teams by securing Clubmark, investing in more courses for coaches and running more youth sides. The senior teams’ presentation evening took place on Sept 14 and a separate juniors’ presentation evening will take place on Oct 20 when The Rotary Club of Billericay Mayflower will present a cheque for £200 for awards to colts for their cricket achievements as part of the Rotary sports awards programme. Lunch Club and Curry club meals continue every other Tuesday throughout the close season as part of the Vets cricket agenda which includes indoor nets every Thursday. BCC indoor nets are available for hire by other clubs and for individual coaching and bookings are now being taken for winter training. Billericay run 5 Saturday teams, a Sunday team, Vets midweek XI and colts teams from 9 to 17. New members and spectators are always welcome to the Blunts Wall Road ground. Visit us at Billericay Christmas Market on Dec 1st at our stall in The Walk. See www.billericaycc.co.uk for more details of joining and to hire the clubhouse for parties or wakes where the views over the Essex countryside and substantial parking provide an excellent setting.

Remembering (Might you suggest a better title?) November is a significant month for many in our community, as we plan two special events to remember those who are no longer with us. The first of these takes place on Sunday 3rd November (the nearest Sunday to ‘All Saints Day’) when we hold our Annual Memorial Service at Christ Church in Perry Street at 3.00pm. This service provides family and friends with the opportunity to remember their loved ones, especially those whose funeral services we have had the privilege to lead, in recent years. We also read out the names of those who have been given to us and many people have found this service to be especially helpful. It is not our intention, in arranging this service, to awaken difficult and painful memories, but rather, to remind ourselves of the peace, hope and comfort that God promises to give us in, and through, sad and difficult times in our lives. It’s not too late for you to attend. Please contact me or just turn up on the day. We’d love to have you with us. The second of these events takes place on Sunday 10th November: Remembrance Sunday. This is not a day, as some suggest, to glorify war, but rather, a day to remember those who gave their lives, and continue to do so, in conflicts around our world. These sentiments are echoed in the words of the Kohima Epitaph, which rightly reminds us: “When you go home, tell them of us and say; for your tomorrow we gave our today.” It is a day to remember the horror of war and vow to ourselves: never again. It’s a day to commit ourselves once again to the struggle against evil - the struggle against the very things that to lead to war in the first place and to remind ourselves of the freedom and peace God wants us all to have. As we think of those who’ve lost their lives in times of war, we think especially of those who laid down their own lives for their comrades - the ultimate sacrifice made to save others. Jesus put it this way in John’s Gospel: “Greater love has no man than this, than a man lay down his life for his friends.” We remember, of course, that Jesus sacrificed his own life on the cross so that we might have life – in this world and the next. There is a special service at Emmanuel at 9.15am (lasting for 40 mins) on Remembrance Sunday when members of the Air Training Corps and Army Cadets join with us before we gather, with the Royal British Legion, Churches Together in Billericay and representatives of many of our community groups, at the War Memorial in the High Street, around 10.50am, for an Act of Remembrance. May I encourage you, even if you are not a regular church attendee, to make a special effort to join with us on this most poignant of days? With every blessing in Jesus’ precious name Revd Paul A. Carr Emmanuel Church, Billericay Web: www.emmanuel-church.info Email: paul@billericaychurches.org Tweet: @EmmanuelCM12

It’s beginning to Look A Lot like Christmas It’s under 60 sleeps until Christmas now and shops are bursting with festive sparkle and gifts galore! For some weeks, our towns have been busy preparing for the annual markets and this year there are sacks of special treats in store of us! After 8 years, Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council are swapping their usual Victorian night for a Christmas Festival. On 6th December, Ingatestone High Street will be closed from 5pm-9pm and will be transformed into a winter wonderland. All the shops and businesses will be open and there will be some new attractions including live music, dance troops, human statues, food and drink and much more. A few days earlier on Sunday 1st December, Billericay are holding their famous annual Christmas Market in the High Street, which will be closed all day. David Randall, Event Manager and member of Rotary Club of Billericay Mayflower explains what’s in store for us this year; “New, this year is a Christmas Market Charity Raffle for a Cult Car (The Nissan Figaro, Pink) with all new proceeds going to Thriftwood School for children with special needs and other Rotary Charities. “We have a winning formula and the best thing about the day is that it generates a wonderful atmosphere of community and raises funds for good causes!” by Around Town Journalist Kelly Plume

The Story of Billericay Man of the moment; author Charles Phillips, 60 from Stock, is possibly the busiest man I know, packing more into his days than what seems humanly possible. As well as finding time to research, write and publish several books exploring local histories including his new one ‘The Story Of Billericay’, he also enjoys cycling though the local countryside, rambling through the hills and travelling Europe and the UK by train. Historian, Charles, is part of the Stock Heritage Society who are busy preparing for the opening of a museum in the village. He also enjoys taking part in productions with his local dramatics group. Charles has lived in the area all his life and retired in 2005 from a career in civil service. Since then he has had the time to concentrate on his keen interest in railways and general local history, rummaging through libraries for the forgotten secrets of our towns. His latest book ‘The Story of Billericay’ has been in the making for over a decade and Charles prides it on being the only complete history of Billericay that has ever been pieced together, using facts and photos (some that have never been published before). The book takes you from the earliest Neanderthal to now, detouring through USA briefly via the marvellous Mayflower and our relocating relatives. Some of these ex-pats of the past even tried to dismantle their own houses and take them brick-by-brick over the pond! The book also explores the affects and tragedies of two World Wars on our town, backed up with a secret stash of aerial photos taken by the RAF during the war. Then fast forwarding bang up to date, touching on the ‘locally’ filmed TV show, Gavin & Stacy. Charles explains “We really don’t know what happened on our doorsteps and my book helps resolve this. I can’t stress enough how helpful a source our local libraries have been and how tolerant and cooperative all the staff are. As well as sourcing information locally, I tracked down an obscure article about Billericay’s muddy roads from the early 20th tucked away in the archives of an Australian newspaper!” Accuracy is an important detail which Charles maintains to the highest degree and after scouring the world for every scrap of historical evidence that our town has left behind, ‘The Story of Billericay’ is packed full of historical treasure that will shine a new light on our humble streets as we tread the paths our predecessors predicated.

It was one of the strangest surveys I have even taken part in. Three questions: age, gender and…can you hear a goldcrest ? My answers were 58, male and yes. I’m one of the lucky ones. Facts about the goldcrest: it makes very high pitched songs and calls so not every birder can hear them. It weighs less than a teaspoon of sugar and is one of our two smallest birds (The other is the much less common firecrest and both are smaller than a wren). Goldcrests are found here all year round but in winter the numbers are swelled with visitors from Scandanavia, so these tiny birds have to endure flights across the North Sea. You can find them amongst flocks of tits in almost any woodland but they visit gardens too and have distinct preference for conifers. They will nest and hunt for food in those large leylandii highly favoured for garden hedging. November is a good time to look for goldcrests. Stop by any patch of conifers and listen for the high pitched ze ze ze. If you aren’t blessed with good hearing, look for tiny constantly-moving birds flitting through the trees or hedges, especially where are pine trees. To get them in the garden try sprinkling cheese on a conifer: this year I attracted one to our old Christmas tree.

Birds become easier to see at this time of year as the leaves clear from the trees. As well as goldcrests, parties of wintering thrushes and finches arrive in the woods and farmland and on the coast there are thousands of duck, geese and waders. The other attraction at this time of year is fungi, especially the waxcaps, which come in an amazing variety of colours. In 2011, 12 types of waxcap were found in Mill Meadows making it a site of national importance. So when you are out walking you need to be looking down as well as up to get enjoyment from nature.

The Twickenham Trail Continues… So Billericay 1st XV had their first game, albeit Willowbrook Sports & Social Club Stock Road, in Round 2 due to a previous round bye, in Billericay the Junior Vase. This Junior Vase is a national Essex, competition culminating in a final played at the CM4 9PQ home of rugby, Twickenham. Having reached the final twice in previous years, and being the only Essex team to get there at all, winning once, this competition always brings out the ultimate focus in a young, exciting Billericay Team! So a home match against Southwold RFC from Suffolk was the first port of call! It ended in a convincing 24-0 home win! The next round is to be played at home against Woodbridge RFC on the 16th November! Please come down and show support for your local team. The bar is always open, and friendly faces are always there to talk through the finer points of the game! Away from the cup, a strong start in the league puts Billericay currently joint 2nd with 2 wins, 1 draw and a loss. The junior section now has over 200 players registered; an all time high! Every player enjoys Sunday training with regular weekend games. Some also have midweek training. Billericay really is a local club for all ages and abilities!

CHARITY FUN WALK. Last month the 2013 Fun Walk presentation took place at Anisha Grange Care Home, Billericay, at which the bonus pot was distributed to the charities and projects that took part in this year’s Walk at Barleylands Farm on 19th May. The total monies raised and donated by the 2013 Fun Walk was nearly £100,000, whilst the number of charities and projects benefitting this year was 110. This brings the total monies raised since the Fun Walk’s inception in 2002 to £537,000 – a real landmark. Our family of volunteers and bonus pot sponsors should be proud.

This free community and charity fund raising event attracts 20,000 visitors on the day and we do not want them to be disappointed. Back by popular demand is the ‘Downton Abbey’ carousel as the centre piece of the car park kiddies rides. Following his parade that starts at 11am, Santa will take up residence in his Grotto [sponsored by Harlequin Montessori Nursery] in the Day Centre in Chantry Way behind The Chequers where children can visit him for free and have free face painting while they are entertained by a balloon modeller as they wait their turn to see Santa and receive their gift [courtesy of The Candy Bar]. Also, there are free Punch & Judy shows [sponsored by BDRA] in the Reading Rooms. Mums and Dads have plenty to enjoy as well with some 150 stalls selling a variety of goods including the ever popular hog roast and mulled wine and some 100 shops and businesses will be open. This year there is an opportunity to win a cult car in a raffle for a Nissan Figaro Pink provided by enjoy... clairey fairy cakes where tickets can be purchased from their shop at 48 High Street. All net proceeds from the Raffle and Billericay Christmas Market go to the Thriftwood School 6th form project and other Rotary Charities. More details are available on our website www.billericaychristmasmarket.com . New members are welcome to join us. In addition to charity fund raising there is a social programme of fun events to be enjoyed with like minded friends. We meet in Rose Hall, Chapel Street at 8pm on Thursdays.

BILLERICAY LIONS CLUB Just a reminder that there will be a quiz on the Last 5 Decades to be held on November 16th at Christchurch Hall in Perry Street, time 7 for 7.30 pm. Tickets are £5 per person and you are reminded to bring your own drinks and nibbles. Some willing Lions helped out with the ‘Billericay Pick’ last month when they together with other members of the community spent an hour and half collecting litter around the streets of Queens Park. The Christmas Market and the Christmas Sleigh is now virtually organised with routes and collection venues set. The sleigh just needs washing down, having spent the whole of the year in a pig barn, sweets have to be bought and we are all ready to take to the streets once again. All of the routes will be on our website below. Our next taste night, ‘Taste of Greece’, has already attracted a lot of interest and bookings. This will be held on Saturday March 29th at Emmanuel Church, Laindon Road and tickets will be £12 per person. Following this year’s success we are also hoping to hold another Big Band Night next year. Early signs are that this will be in May again and we are looking for suitable bands that will be available at that time. For details of all Lions events please visit our website www.billericaylions.com or telephone 0845 833 9849.

At the time of writing, final preparations were underway to make this years Billericay Round Table Fireworks display another fantastic event for our community to enjoy. Billericay Round Table members recently agreed to donate £10,000 that was required to complete the childrens play area project on the ‘royal green’ opposite The Rising Sun in the High Street. All of the members on Billericay Round Table are keen to support projects like this one as our neighbours and community can enjoy them for many years to come. We are running dangerously low on new members joining our group this year. Are you 18-45 years of age? Do you have a few hours spare each month to have some fun? If so, please get in contact ‘BE PART OF IT’ Text Join and you postcode to 60066 today Please visit www.BillericayFireworks.co.uk to see the latest images of this years event.

Forever Young You’d be hard pushed to ever catch self-confessed recluse, Nick Smith, 27 out and about in his home town of Billericay. Apart from venturing out to his karate lessons and ‘mundane’ Monday to Friday in the financial industry, Nick prefers to hide away from the rat race of reality and get lost in the enchanted, wondrous world that a children’s book illustrator leads. From a young age, illustrator, Nick, loved drawing and his fascination with ‘Where’s Wally’ and other character based design, transpired into achieving an A at GCSE level art at school. He then went on to study fine art at University and is currently working towards the release of the fourth ‘Loss De Plott’ book in the fairy-tale series by author Stephan J Myers. ‘Loss De Plot’ has been described as a ballet of words, about Loss, a young girl and her captivating adventures through her own book of dreams. In Loss’s latest outing, her drawings come to life when she falls asleep and Myers poetically weaves us through the fantasy interpretation of the world as she sees it. “I really love children’s books and still buy them today. A great thing about my job is that the possibilities are endless. The imagination of a child has no limits and I tend to draw the images that I always wanted to see when I was younger”. It took around 10 months to complete their first book, which was released in Christmas 2012 and now Nick and Stephan are working towards the fourth that is due out early next year. Alongside his ‘Loss De Plott’ work, Nick is always developing his own personal projects and for the past two years he has been involved in Quentin Blake’s Big Draw Company in London. “Drawing is something I know I have to do to be happy. I’m incredibly fortunate to be part of this amazing journey and have such a dream job. My confidence has grown immensely in the past year and finding out how popular the books are is amazing. The publishers receive letters from parents telling us that their daughters insist on wearing red ribbons in their hair like ‘Loss’ does. The very best thing about this job though, is that I have access to youth forever. It will keep me forever young!” By Around Town Journalist Kelly Plume
