HUNDREDS of families enjoyed the summer sunshine at Grays Town Park as Thurrock Council threw a great big lunch.
As you can see from the film, families relaxed, children played on what was a wonderfully organised event.
A number of organisations were also on hand to profer advice and guidance on a number of issues.
As one parent said: “This was a great day. I can sit safely with my children and my husband actually spoke to someone at a stall re a council issue they had. Better than queuing up in the stuffy council offices on a warm day.”
YT spoke to the ever-affable mayor, cllr Charlie Curtis about the day.
