Illumination of Billericay's War Memorial - Crowdfunding Project

Published: 10 November 2017

Following the withdrawal of funding by Basildon Borough Council and cancellation of various High Street improvements, Billericay Town Council are looking at ways of “crowdfunding” one of the lost improvements; the installation of uplighting around the town’s War Memorial.

It seems particularly appropriate as we approach Armistice Day for us to ensure that this worthy project continues. The War Memorial is an important landmark in our High Street, and a continuing symbol of our respect for the fallen; who lived, loved, and were loved in our town.

If you are interested in supporting this initiative, either as an individual or as a local business owner, or perhaps you would like to run a fundraiser, please email the Town Clerk at
Initial discussions have gained a positive response for the project, which had been costed by Basildon Borough Council at £3,000. Once the practicalities of crowdfunding are resolved and a full scoping of the work completed we will get in touch with you to let you know how to proceed."
