Celebrations for Tilbury

Cutting the cake

A great day was had by all on April 1st at the Cruise Terminal. Nearly 1,000 people came along to hear Jonathan Catton’s interesting talk on the history of Tilbury Town. There were open top bus rides around the Port and Annie O’Brien launched the new Tilbury and Chadwell memories website. The Tilbury Brass Band kept people entertained as they browsed the history stalls. Annie would like to thank everyone for coming and especially to the  Port of Tilbury for their support. Visit the website on www.tilburyandchadwellmemories.org.uk .  A celebration cake was cut by June Brown a long time volunteer and shared out with the visitors.
