This Month's Topics

Welcome to our Christmas Edition

Our Christmas edition is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the year and to show our appreciation for everyone who tirelessly  ensures you receive your Resident.

Thank You...

 to the 150 or so road reps who deliver your Resident to your letterbox and collect your subs each year.

Thank You...

 to the Area Secretaries who organise the coverage in their area and deliver the Resident when people are on holiday at the beginning of the month.

Thank You...

to Kathleen and Yvonne who organise the very successful coach trips.

Along with all the members of the BDRA committee all of these volunteers believe in the Association and its place as a voice for residents of Billericay.


The Year of our 90th Anniversary
At the last AGM one member challenged us to increase the membership. Below is one of our strategies . If you know anyone who can work with us to make this happen please encourage them to find out more.

 This Could be YOU!
The Road reps are the backbone of the Association.  Without them you would not receive your Resident.  If road reps are not found for these rounds then the delivery will have to discontinue.  The best people to deliver to a road are those who live in it. These rounds only mean a time commitment of 20-30mins for 10 months a year and a little extra for collecting subs. Please don’t let the rounds disappear as the previous residents are likely to have delivered the rounds for many years.
