YOURTHURROCK has made the final of the Thurrock Business Awards in the category, “New Business of the Year”.
Since launching in September 2008, the on-line newspaper has produced over 2000 filmed news items covering every aspect of life in the borough.
YourThurrock Editor Michael Casey said: “We are delighted to make the final and take it as a huge compliment.
“We have come a long way in a short space of time. Our commitment is to convey the message that this is a dynamic borough, changing fast with many challenges and opportunities. Using social media as well as good old fashioned journalism
“We were especially pleased with our coverage of the recent “No Confidence” council meeting where we had two filmed interviews and nine detailed news items up on our site by 4am.
“I would personally like to thank (It’s not the Oscars-Ed): Mike Jones, Lucy Chipperfield, Pixelwork, Sally Casey and all the people who have ensured that each day is full of news.”
The Awards take place on Friday March 19th at the Civic Hall, Blackshots.
