On Saturday 21 February the sun shone and a light offshore breeze greeted over 30 members of the Gunfleet when they took part in the Club’s annual cliff clearance. Armed with their “loppers and choppers” the team got stuck into cutting back the tamarisk – from Star Point to the far end of West Compound. Tendring District Council supplied a shredder and operator and soon the whole cliff was buzzing. Ages ranged from over three score years and ten to just six but everyone mucked in. Those not cutting-down were busy picking-up as armfuls of tamarisk were ferried to the shredder.
The little grey cells were hard at it down the Gunfleet last Saturday 24 January when the Club held its annual Quiz Night. The “house full” sign had gone up some weeks earlier, such is the popularity of this event, with members eager to test their knowledge in teams of six. Ernie. our genial quizmaster, provided some great questions that resulted in many a puzzled expression, and as the first few rounds went by it was very evident there would be several teams competing for victory.
