We were invited to attend two great events over the weekend here in Thurrock
Firstly an event on Friday night at the Civic hall from the Thurrock Nepalese Gurkha Community (TNGC) to join their Dashain-Tihar Celebration Party, together with Thurrock Mayor Terry Piccolo and TLS Ceo Neil Woodbridge & Board Director Sundeep Saini,
…and to top the weekend off, an invitation from the Thurrock Nepalese Women’s Community to their Charity Evening at Chadwell Village Hall.
At both events, we enjoyed fantastic food, great company and excellent entertainment.
I would like to thank these organisations for their wonderful hospitality and kindness.
A very quick post to let you all know that to mark World Mental Health Awareness Day on Thursday 10th October Reach Out for Mental Health are hosting a pop-up living room in the heart of Grays town centre, in the mall.
Living Rooms are a relaxed and informal place for ANYONE to come and have a sit down, a chat, a sing song, play some games or just to sit quietly with a group of people.
The idea comes from Camerados- please check out the link for all the information you need on this fabulous concept. https://www.camerados.org/
Reach Out for Mental Health would love to see your friendly and familiar faces there, tell your colleagues, customers, friends- tell everyone! Don’t eat at your desk on Thursday, come down and see us.
Hope to see you all there.

Sunday 6th October – meeting at Grays Yacht Club RM17 6JF from 09:30 to 12:00 followed by free refreshments in the café. This is the Grays Beachcombers regular monthly pick. This is a family friendly event suitable for accompanied children 6 years and older. – updated timing for this month’s event.
Many of you may realise over the last couple of days we have had very high tides, a lot of rain and strong winds. The result of these three has resulted in another heavy deposit of plastic along the northern Thames foreshore. Below is a picture taken this morning in Grays.
Because of the quantity of plastics that need to be removed from the high-tide line asap I will be at the Yacht Club at 09:30 for the Beachcombers regular monthly event.
As usual we will meet outside the Yacht Club in Thames Road. In case when you arrive nobody is there, we will be working downstream/east/left of the yacht club.
Given the quantity of plastic to pick this event will suit younger pickers – especially given I have 6 raptor dino-pickers that are “biting at the bit” to consume some plastic!
Please wear weather appropriate clothing and sturdy boots, all other equipment will be provided.
Look forward to seeing as many young and less young as possible on Sunday morning.
