RESIDENTS were given the chance to have their say on a host of social issues in Tilbury today (Thursday).
Organised by the Thurrock Community Safety Partnership, the Community Action Day saw Thurrock Council’s trading standards officers, the Drug and Alcohol Action Team and firefighters engaging with the public to talk to people about crime-related issues of concerns.
The day coincided with the launch of the council’s postcard campaign.
Being sent out to all homes in Tilbury the postcard asks people what anti-social behaviour problems they think they are and what they would like to see being done about it.
Thurrock Community Safety Partnership Manager Michelle Cunningham said: “The Tilbury Engagement Day gave us the perfect opportunity to launch our postcard campaign which offers residents the chance to have their say on the issues of Anti-social Behaviour in the area.
The postage paid postcards are being delivered by Police Community Support Officers and are available in premises around the town centre including the library, shops and housing officers.
The police will also be at the train station distributing the cards and we would urge everyone to use this opportunity to let us know their views.”
