Thank you

By Annie O'brien

I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who braved the cold to come out on 31st Jan to remember the Tilbury floods. It was a very successful day and brought back memories for many people. Those who did attend enjoyed some hot tea and bread and jam served by some hard working 'tea ladies'!!

A rowing boat in Civic Square just as it would have been in 1953, without the flood water of course!
