Katie Smith Young Citizen of the Year 2020


After much deliberation and voting by our councillors the Town Council can now announce the winners of citizen and young citizen of the year. Our congratulations go to:


 Richard Leahy

 For dedicating hundreds of voluntary hours to the local community and his involvement with many of the community events in the town including the Soap Box Derby, Christmas Market, Fireworks Display and Santa Sleigh. His motivation, energy and commitment to fundraising has helped ensure that many vulnerable and marginalised people have benefitted.


Katie Smith

For her formidable voluntary contribution to the Billericay Parkrun and for taking on all of the volunteer roles and always being positive, friendly and supportive towards all the participants. Katie’s contribution has helped shape the ‘personality’ of the event and its positive reputation in the town.

Congratulations and thank you to both of our winners and to all those that were nominated for volunteering with our community.
