The Brentwood and Billericay local group carries out all manner of fundraising activities and events including nature reserve Open Days, as well as recruiting new members, local publicity, work parties, evening talks and wildlife trust magazine deliveries.
We provide the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded people, share interests and have fun. Our programmes of events, which include guided walks and illustrative talks, are a great way for you to extend your knowledge of wildlife and to meet informed people who share an interest in the natural world.
We also work hard to publicise the work of the Essex Wildlife Trust, support campaigns and carry out valuable fundraising for the Trust to help protect the wildlife in Essex. We are always happy to welcome new people who want to get involved helping preserve the wildlife of Essex, if that is you, then please contact one of our Committee Members below.

BRENTWOOD AND BILLERICAY LOCAL GROUP AGM's
The Local Group AGM for the year ending 31st December 2019 was postponed from 19th March 2020 because of COVID restrictions. Head office instructed us to carry forward this AGM to 2021. We therefore intend to hold the AGMs for both 2020 and 2021 together on 17th June 2021 at the Shenfield Parish Hall at 7.30 pm.
In the event that there are still COVID restrictions in the summer, we will look into the possibility of inviting local members to join the AGM's on Zoom, if they do not wish to attend in person. If you would like to join us on Zoom please register by sending me or the secretary an email by the 30th April 2021. Papers can then be sent to you via email in early June.
Please put the new date for the AGM in your diaries and keep an eye on the Local Group Facebook page or website, for further information. Please also note that we have a new Secretary, David Threadgold, who took over in December last year.
