Photo: Oh, the power of social media.  Thanks to so many folk interested in litttle old Billericay - media traffic very high this morning - probably friends in the Colonies!  it's fun to include tiny YouTubes. Should reach my 80 thousandth hit on fairly soon.

Loved Jane Bennett's (MD of Bennetts) idea of awarding a "most deserving woman to be treated like royalty, for a day".  In Billericay, Nikki Barrett was the winner.  She was sponsored by her own daughter, 11-year-old Ellie who accompanied mum on a flying trip around Billericay, in a Rolls-Royce, and enjoyed a shopping spree, dinner at the Magic Mushroom and a super new hair-do. Here we see Nikki with our supersonic Town Crier, Jim Shrubb, her son,Alfie, John Buchanan, Town Council chairman and Jane (who also carried out a similar event in nearby Brentwood). Oh, and our queen also visited our gem of a museum - the Cater where she was shown around by our Curator, Chris Brewster.  Hope they visit us again.
