YourThurrock.Com is an on-line newspaper covering every aspect of life in the borough.
Launched in Sept 2008, the site publishes over 3,000 stories a year and has filmed 5, 000 news items in nearly five years.
Thurrock is a rich quarry of news but the borough is also at a fascinating crossroads in it’s history and yourthurrock’s mission is to chronicle the story of Thurrock in the 21st century.
We primarily film the majority of our news but we also print word/photo only stories as well.
Our main aim is to celebrate the good news and the hundreds of activities, groups and initiatives that thrive in Thurrock however we also aim to scrutinise, question and challenge where appropriate. Never naive nor cynical but a balanced healthy scepticism.
The site receives an average of 100,000 views per month with our local viewers looking in but also viewers from USA, Japan, Australia, Nepal and dozens of other countries.
Our youtube channels also receive around 40,000 views per month.
We work seven days a week and are always on the look out for stories as well as keen to build up our blogger nation.
YourThurrock won the Spirit of the Festival Award at the Thurrock Drama Festival in 2010 for its coverage
We also made the final of the New Company category for the Thurrock Business Awards 2010.
