The Billericay Youth Council were able to employ the services of The Street Team to provide demonstrations and workshops throughout the day involving Dodge ball, basketball, football and the day concluded with competitions at the skatepark. There was also a freefall demonstration and Cheer Leader displays. In fact there was something for everyone and it was great to see so many youngsters of all age groups participating and enjoying themselves. The Olympic Legacy has continued into 2013 in Billericay.

The event was also supported by he Friends of Lake Meadows and Billericay Round Table.

Members of the Youth Town Council liaised with the skateboard users and tenders were invited. 3B Ramps secured the contract and the work has now been completed.
