LOVE GRAYS: GRAYS IN BLOOM – Princes Trust win public vote for best planter

Several parts of Grays Town Centre were cheered up this summer with the first ever Grays in Bloom competition.  5 local Voluntary Groups took part in designing the displays and keeping them looking nice throughout the summer.  A vote was held on Facebook for the best display and the winners were Princes Trust with their planter in George Street near the State Cinema.

Riverside Community Big Local provided the trophy and Griffin Residential provided other prizes.

Tribe by the Thames – New Youth Group started with a flourish

Our newly launched youth group has named itself “Tribe by the Thames” and we quite like it!

The youngsters from the Grays Riverside area drew several logos to reflect their new name.

The first couple of weeks have been indoors and have given the young people a chance to get to know one another and their volunteer leaders.

There are still plenty of spaces in the groups, different age groups meet on different nights as follows:

Ages 8-11 Tuesdays 4-6pm, Ages 12-15 Thursdays 5-7pm and Ages 16-19 Mondays 6-8pm the meeting place is the Inspire Youth Hub, Orsett Road, opposite Thameside Theatre.[fbvideo link="https://www.facebook.com/marta.woldanski/videos/10212822606339215/" width="500" height="400" onlyvideo="1"]

We are looking to recruit a Street Ambassador for every street in the area!  “What’s a Street Ambassador?”, You cry!

A Street Ambassador is someone who will work in conjunction with Riverside Community in an attempt to improve the conditions and lifestyle within their local area and to promote Riverside Community Big Local projects and connect with residents.

We will hold regular meetings of all Street Ambassadors, to discuss issues and start projects that will transform the neighbourhood.

Issues that would be identified and addressed might include:

  • Anti-Social behaviour
  • Fly-tipping
  • Waste and recycling issues
  • Concern for vulnerable neighbours
  • Social integration
  • Housing issues
  • Community Spirit and Neighbourliness
