    Just a quick reminder that the children are taking part in a mini enterprise project, where they have made Christmas items to sell to parents. All money raised will go towards Thurrock’s homeless. It’s not too late to purchase one of the items made if you haven’t already done so. https://t.co/tDc5uMqAnf

    Proud to be at the Battle of Britain service, in Grays. It was really good to see young people taking a lead in giving thanks to "the Few." And it was great to see @BCA_Thurrock, Mark Jones. Mark was in the RAF before teaching and plays a leading role with our Air Cadets. https://t.co/j3yMqEhJro
