Sorry its bad news, its a real pain to have to do this again and our group decision did not come lightly.
We really hope you will support us with our decision.
We want to put on the best event for our community but there was many points which were not in our favour for making it a safe and enjoyable event, especially when breakeven possibility was questionable for our charity account.
Here are a few points;
Stay safe and look forward to seeing you in the community.
It was great to get out on the water July 2021 with other Tabler members and friends when we set sail from Port Hamble Marina in Southampton on a 37ft Yacht. The weather was traditional, Hot, Sunny, Wet, Windy across the weekend.
We made great use of the wind when we had it, and then sat and chilled out when the wind went....
Great lunches were made and made use of the restaurants in Cowes town once we were secured in marina berth.

If you have any questions or comments, please add them here/below.
After careful consideration, we are sadly announcing our decision to cancel the 2020 Billericay Round Table Charity Fireworks at Lake Meadows.Our small team of volunteer organisers have been closely and continuously monitoring the COVID19 situation as it has developed both globally and in the UK. Planning of the event has continued as far as possible, but it has recently become evident that we will be unable to deliver the event in November.
This is not a decision we have come to lightly. This time last year we were looking forward to our 2019, 50th anniversary of one of the biggest displays in Essex. Typically, each year we are able to raise enough funds to support around thirty local charities and individuals, so we are regrettably going to see a reduction in our donation activities until our 6th November 2021 Fireworks event. The good news is that you can still support our in-house charity, Round Table Children's Wish by visiting http://www.rtcw.org/make-a-donation/
Stay safe and best wishes for your families,
Billericay Round Table
This years AGM started with an early alarm bell to be in the high street for breakfast in local cafe who really saved us from our previous plans... Thank you Deli37 for your great breakfast to get us started for the day.
Formalities next to wrap up the past 'tabling' year before providing details of plans for the next year. With new chairman Gabriel now at the helm we can all be assured to hear many of his trips abroad.... ;-)
With formalities done we headed out to Nags Heads for all day and night party with some world class dance music dis dropping some ear-shattering and ground-thumping tunes.
I have put together a montage of images and videos, hope you enjoy it. Please add your comments and share our YouTube videos.
Please come down to Billericay Library today (Sat 2nd December) before 3pm to buy your own copy of a fantastic new book created and put together buy Lisa Unwin on behalf of the Billericay community in loving memory of Harriet who took her own young life.

Billericay Round Table have made their first donation of £300 to Greig City Academy following the success of the recent fireworks event where £45,000 was raised for charity
Greig City Academy is an 11-19 inner city state school based in Haringey, North London and is the only London comprehensive school with its own fleet of self renovated boats on which students start taking on the challenge of sailing for the first time.
Teacher, Mr Jon Holt who heads up the sailing project at the school told Round Table at a recent meeting “We purchase boats requiring a little love and attention and renovate them in school. This has the benefit of making the whole scheme affordable and providing the opportunity for our students to learn valuable craft and maintenance skills.”
He went on to add “This donation from Round Table will enable us to start to train the next set of students willing to give sailing a go.”
Round Table Chairman Dan Jackson said “To donate money that helps these kids get out onto the water and experience something completely different to the inner city is amazing.”
He added “These young lads came along and made a serious presentation to us about their sailing adventures leading up to the Fastnet race in August. So it’s not only the sailing, it’s the renovation of the boats and the presentation skills they are learning.”
The attached picture is off Table Chairman Dan Jackson handing a cheque of £300 to Mr Jon Holt and the presenters on the evening Montel Fagan-Jordan, Shabazz Patterson and Camilo Orobio.

A normal super busy month in Billericay for some of our Tablers
Barrow Farm - One of our recent donations was towards the fantastic work that goes on at Barrow Farm, a local RDA special needs riding school. We were very happy to pay them a visit and meet Phillipa and Curtis, two of the twelve riders that will benefit from the courses we were able to fund.
We all hope you enjoyed our trampolines at the Summerfest
Some of the guys went down to visit Southend RNLI to learn more about there special emergency services for our coast line. A few of the guys managed to do what they love most in life and dress up.
Billericay now also has its own Free Run event at Lake Meadows park. Yes this is a new FREE community event for al to enjoy

Did you see an article in the Yellow Advertiser?
Local Press Coverage:
Then to top it all off we welcomed Giles as a new member.
Our chairman Marcus had the pleasure of handing over a cheque to the Lords Taverners charity for £790.48!
Billericay Cricket Club helped us with two of our Santa Sleigh routes at Christmas, and we asked them to nominate a charity where funds raised on the night could go to.
Big Thanks chaps for all your help, I'm sure the charity will make great use of the funds!
August is traditionally a respite month for our Round Table activities, but this year has proven to be somewhat busier than normal.
We kicked off by heading south of the river to enjoy an evening with our Dartford buddies at a Junkyard Crazy Golf event. We were especially pleased to welcome along our National President (and fellow Essex Area member) Mark House. It was a fantastic evening with plenty of laughs had by all, but we are not expecting a call from the Team GB anytime soon! A week later, pretty much the same motley crew went to Festival Leisure Park to have a crack at Wakeboarding. We all agreed that this was an absolute blast, but the days of sore arms/ shoulders/neck that followed was not so great – we are definitely doing it again next year!
We have had a number of new guys come along recently to check out our goings-on and we are always very happy to meet ordinary fellas looking to do extraordinary things, so please check us out at www.facebook.com/billericayroundtable and www.billericayroundtable.co.uk or contact us directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also heading at full steam towards 5th November Fireworks at Lake Meadows. We are again expecting 18000+ visitors and so if you are interested in sponsoring our event, then we have numerous opportunities to do so.
Details can be requested via email@example.com lastly, we invite members of our community to make a donation request for a special person or special group within the Billericay area via www.billericayroundtable.co.uk/funding
