TRANSFORMATION AT BILLERICAY On Wednesday, Lord Hanningfield and John Baron MP visited St Mary Magdalen Church in Billericay High Street to see the progress of the four-year project to transform the church into such a precious asset for the whole community. Essex County Council contributed £15,OOO from its Community Initiative Fund and other generous groups provided financial help towards the £200,000 required.
Also present was Chief of Development, Alan Campbell and the Reverend Elwin Cockett. A booklet is available describing the provenance of the church. This also outlines the history of this lovely little town. The slim book is on sale at the Story Teller, Presence Shop and, of course, from the church.Labels:
