The Rotary Club of Frinton-on-Sea is located on the East Coast of England and covers Frinton, Walton, Great Holland, Kirby, Thorpe and outlying communities. Frinton-on-Sea was, until late Victorian times, just a few cottages, farms and a church. In the 1890’s Richard Powell Cooper began developing the town, stipulating the quality of housing and hotels and prohibiting boarding houses and pubs. Frinton became the host to high society early in the 20th century, with the Prince of Wales (and Mrs Simpson), Winston Churchill, Gracie Fields, Douglas Fairbanks (and Junior) being regular visitors along with many other popular society luminaries and celebrities.
Frinton’s first chip shop opened in 1992 and its first pub opened in 2000.
Among the attractions are the annual festival, the famous Frinton Summer Theatre, biennial Open Gardens event, the wonderful Golf, Cricket, Yacht, Tennis clubs and its central shopping street, Connaught Avenue, with predominately owner-operated shops and eateries.. Not forgetting of course the splendid, award winning beaches and huts which attract thousands of visitors year on year.
