THE CROWDS poured into the Tilbury Cruise Terminal to enjoy a day of celebration for the towns centenary.
Obviously, the area of Tilbury has been around for a lot longer but the centenary marks a hundred years of the “municipal status” of the town.
The mayor of Thurrock, cllr Charles Curtis opened proceedings. YT’s Mike Jones went on a tour of the area and interviewed Lynda Viccars from the Port of Tilbury who sponsored the event.
Thanks must also go to the Tilbury Riverside project who continue to keep the flame of heritage alive.
