About us and our partners

The site was launched on 1st April, 2012, as part of the celebrations marking the 100th birthday of Tilbury Town. Annie O'Brien is the manager of the Tilbury and Chadwell Memories project, working on behalf of the Tilbury Riverside Project. She has been working with Thurrock Council's heritage officer Jonathan Catton to launch the project.

The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and aims to collect a wide range of memories, photographs and objects over the next two years. They will be used to help tell the story of the last hundred years in the area.

For more information phone Annie O'Brien 01375 859911 or e-mail us at enquiries.
