I would like to thank all the residents of West Thurrock, South Stifford and Purfleet who voted for me in last Thursdays by election.
I am very grateful for the support I received and fully intend to follow in the footsteps of the late Councillor Andy Smith who is sadly missed by many people in Thurrock.
I have, today, visited Purfleet Heritage Centre, with Polly Billington, to enquire how I can offer my support for the good work Alan Gosling and his team of volunteers do in the local community.
I shall be supporting the local forums and attending regular surgeries in the community together with Oliver and Victoria, my fellow Councillors.
Once again many thank to you all and also to my own team of volunteers who have supported me over the last few weeks.
Councillor Terry Brookes
