 Leader of Thurrock Council, Cllr Rob Gledhill said: “After the restrictions of lockdown this time last year, it was a privilege to see people come together safely to remember and pay our respects as a community.

“As always, our history in Thurrock is incredibly important to us, and we will never forget the sacrifice of those who gave their lives fighting for our rights and our freedoms.

“I had the honour of attending a special memorial event on Sunday 14 November, at the Grays Memorial in the High Street, and paying my respects in person alongside the Mayor of Thurrock, Cllr Sue Shinnick.

“This year and every year, we will remember them.”
