WELCOME TO THAMESIDE FORUM
Thameside Forum was formed in 2002 by local people who were interested in making a difference in the Grays South area. They came forward with ideas & suggestions to help make Grays Riverside a pleasant location to live & work in.
We are a non-political, all inclusive voluntary body who have been democratically elected to posts on the Committee, which include a Chair - Deputy Chair - Treasurer - Secretary.
We allocate funding for local projects once they have been voted for & agreed officially. We apply for our funding each year which for the last couple of years has diminished to to administration costs ie postage, paper, print cartridges etc we are ALL volunteers and proud of it, however we always appreciate new people joining us who care about theor local community and have ideas and suggestions to make it better to live and work in.
