Last night I attended the Annual Town Meeting that Rayleigh Town Council holds…..annually, surprisingly.

It’d probably be more aptly named as an awards evening. However, it was good to see local people recognised for their hard work and efforts in our town. I was actually really surprised at some of the winners! Did you know that there is a ‘shower’ type device used by the police to wash victims of acid attacks and the inventor lives right here in Rayleigh?

With a room full of proud parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters and other family, there were plenty of smiles, especially for those happy snappers. A very well done to all the winners and good to see what talented residents we have in our local community.

I was intrigued at the level that some of the winners compete at and here’s a video of  the winner of ‘Junior Sports Person’, Danny Crouch in action  in the international junior cup.

  • Dear James, I’m pleased you we’re surprised at what members of the Rayleigh Town Council, (often referred as “The wicked Tories!”) get involved in behind the scenes. We attend many functions and support many charities and events, because that’s what we do, and believe in. I know you have good intentions in the way you try to serve your residents, we also do the same in our way.

    Kind regards
