Residents in Barking and Dagenham can get a free trip to Southend.

A specially chartered c2c train will depart from Barking and Dagenham Dock stations on August 26.

The trip, which is being supported by the rail provider, leaves at 10am and you will return to the borough by 6pm.

The family-friendly event is being organised by the Dagenham group Reede Road Tenants and Residents Association.

Council leader Darren Rodwell said: “I am delighted that once again c2c has agreed to support this trip.

“I am looking forward to another great day out for our residents as it is an opportunity to meet neighbours and friends.”
To book a place on the trip, visit the Every One Every Day shop, either in 55 - 59 Ripple Road, Barking or 116 Church Elm Lane, Dagenham, between Tuesday and Thursday from 10am to 6pm.
