Met a new friend from BBC Essex, the Broadcast Journalist Thomas Magill, who was interested in Billericay's 'Church in the High Street' St Mary Magdalen with its beautiful clock. This clock is dedicated to Queen Victoria's 60th Jubilee in 1897.
Thomas was presented with a history booklet written especially for the celebration of the 2007 rebuilding of this lovely church. This morning's High Street was virtually empty as it was just 7am, and we managed to take some photographs, especially for our overseas visitors who often mention St Mary's when they contact our Cater Museum, just up the road a little.
Celebrationss all round as the bunting is starting to adorn the front of pubs and shops.
