It certainly has been a long time Billericay since we provided you with any news updates.
Our social club of members are enjoying the not-so-warm summer so far and from next week our member count will be +1, WAHOO!!, as new member Matt will be officially joining.
What have we done recently?
Our chairman Neil recently visited Gateway Radio in Basildons Eastgate, from their website link 'www.gateway978.com/listen-again' you can navigate to May 23rd and select 'Drive Time 1700' and fast forward to 48.52 mins to listen to his great Radio Interview - Well done Neil.
Last month for our social we all had an evening out Bowling in BasVegas which was a good laugh, some pro's in the making....
Last weekend we helped out the Billericay Mayflower Rotary club with their amazing Soapbox derby and music event. It s great to be part of this community event, the karts that are created and maintained to manoeuvre their way to the end of the course is is brilliant, so much creativity and dedication for teams to put these machines together is great to see. Very well done to those involved.
A few of the guys had a get together at Billericay Brewery to sample some of the finest drinks being made, They said "it woz rrrreallle fun!" and finished up having food in high street.
The firework committee are progressing well with plans for this years display in November - details will be released soon online so please keep an eye on socials for these updates.
If you know of any projects/individuals in the community that require any funding support please share and get in touch with us by completing our Funding Request form as best you can at via - Funding link and we will review and be in contact with you.
Have a great June and maybe see you around town, feel free to come say hi if you want to ask a question or send us a message via socials.
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.

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.

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!
