The Billericay Discussion Page is a Facebook group with over 23,000 members discussing all things Billericay, from lost shoes to the best takeaways, taxi services and moans about bad parking. In fact it’s anything Billericay related and is a great community resource if you want to know what’s going on in the town.
So last month I asked the good people of Billericay via the discussion page to tell us what their favourite Christmas song of all time was and this show contains all of their requests and dedications. But let’s not forget the good people of Brentwood too, you are most welcome to listen in!
