The Child in the Park
We are delighted to say that the "Child in the Park" has been re-installed onto its plinth in the Garden of the Child.
"The Child in the Park" and some of the FoLM Committee
We wish to thank all those individuals who made donations and to Billericay Town Council for their contribution. The money was used to repair the statue and re-fixing. In addition we would thank the sculptor, John Doubleday and Paul Joyce of Silverback Bronze Ltd (the foundry) for returning "The Child" to its former glory.
Autumn in Lake Meadows
We hope that you will take the opportunity to visit Lake Meadows over the next few weeks and enjoy the many trees which are displaying their Autumn slendour. The flower meadow is still looking bright and cheerful although will not last much longer.
