Welcome to Lake Meadows
Welcome to the website of Lake Meadows in Billericay where you'll find information on the facilities, leisure activities, recreational organisations and many interesting features that can be found in the park.
This web site is maintained by the Friends of Lake Meadows, a voluntary organisation working with Basildon Borough Council, Billericay Town Council and the Billericay community to promote public interest in the park and its management.
We coordinate improvement projects and working parties to bring together park managers, local gardeners and nature experts to enhance our park's natural beauty and its benefit to local residents and host special events throughout the year.
Dragon and Wizard story competition
Now that the statues of the Dragon & Wizard are nearing competition, we want to know the story about them and how they came to Lake Meadows. We had two super storytelling sessions at the end of September but if you were unable to be there, we would like to capture any ideas that you may have about the two characters.
So children - can you make up your own story about the wizard and the dragon in the park? Use your own imagination and ideas to make up any story, the only thing you need to include is the fact that we know both the dragon and the wizard are kind and good. It would be a great activity for you to do at half-term!
(Adults you are allowed to encourage your child’s imagination and if s/he is very young you may write the story down, BUT please DO NOT impose your own story ideas!)
Please post your story, along with your name, address and telephone number to:Friends of Lake Meadows Dragon & Wizard Story Competition
36 Smythe Road
Billericay, Essex CM11 1SE
You must be under 12 years of age on the closing date. Competition ends Friday, December 7th.

A Chance to Win
The Friends of Lake Meadows annual photo competition has begun! Win vouchers worth as much as £75 for your winning photos of Billericay's Lake Meadows park in one of three prizes for adults and juniors. Each entrant may submit as many as four photos.
Expensive camera not required
Last year's winner was taken with an iPhone so expensive SLR cameras are not required to capture exceptional photos. Just take a photo of something you care about, that excites our emotions, something that tells a great story.
So cameras at the ready, start snapping and send your photos at any time between now and June 30th 2015. Finalists’ photos will be displayed in the Billericay Library and prizes awarded for each of the three classes.
