Over the past three months, artists Laura Trevail and Jacci Todd have been working with communities and schools all over Thurrock to collect 100 great stories about Thurrock, and we’re pleased to be able to share the first of them here. Click the button above to enter, and then click on the pins in the map to find all the stories, images of the flags, background provided by Thurrock’s community historian Jon Catton, and lots more besides. The new interactive story app was created by creative computing students from Bath Spa University led by Lee Scott. We are very grateful to Lee and his team. Please do explore the stories at your leisure and share them with your friends.
In September, we will publish a book containing all the stories and the flags. You are warmly invited to the launch of the book as part of the Estuary Festival on Sunday 25 September.
