I WOULD like to take this opportunity to offer season’s greetings, not just to the residents of Grays Riverside ward but to everyone in the borough of Thurrock.
And also I would like to express my thanks, on behalf of those residents and the management of Thurrock Council, to the members of staff at the authority who have worked so very hard in recent days and weeks to combat the adversities brought to the Borough by the weather.
Whether they be the refuse collectors turned snow sweepers, the carers who have carried on throughout the worst of the weather or our other frontline staff who have met the needs of residents, I believe the staff at Thurrock Council have done so well and I am proud to be a member of the team at the head of the Council.
Cllr Val Morris-Cook
Deputy Leader and Grays Riverside councillor
