Welcome to the website of the Friends of Lake Meadows Billericay
An independent local charity, with volunteers working in partnership with Basildon Borough Council, Billericay Town Council and the Billericay community to care for the park, to promote its benefits, improve its facilities and encourage conservation and wildlife.
Monthly Working Party  
This month's Working Party concentrated on weeding the beautiful rhododendron bed, preparing the Garden of the Child following the opening and laying nearly 2 tons of chippings around the Dragon.
Next month the Working Party will be held on Saturday 18th June, we meet by the tennis courts at 9:30am and will finish at about mid-day. If you haven’t helped before this may be your opportunity.
There are a number of tasks to be done especially if the weather is fine.

The seeds have germinated and the plants are starting to grow and hopefully we will have another great display later in the Summer.
You will note Basildon Parks team have erected a fence this year, the reason is to prevent the geese from causing problems and when the flowers are in bloom to stop children, and it has to be said parents, from taking short cuts through the flowers.
