The Rotary Club of Frinton-on-Sea is located on the East Coast of England and covers Frinton, Walton, Great Holland and Kirby. 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 during the first half of the 20th century, with the Prince of Wales, Winston Churchill, Gracie Fields, Douglas Fairbanks and Junior regular visitors. Also many other luminaries of the era. Frinton’s first chip shop opened in 1992 and its first pub opened in 2000. The town’s iconic railway gates were replaced, in 2009, with electronically controlled barriers. Among the attractions are the annual festival, the famous Summer Theatre, biennial Open Gardens events in Walton and Frinton, the wonderful Golf, Cricket, Yacht and Tennis clubs and its main shopping street, Connaught Avenue with predominately owner-operated shopping. Not forgetting the mile-long beach which attracts thousands of visitors with its safe bathing and colourful beach huts.
Walton-on-the-Naze is along the coast, which by the beginning of the 19th century had become a popular seaside resort. and working hard to live up to its reputation as ‘England’s friendliest resort’. With a magnificent Pier and a collection of fine hostelries and amusements for all the family. Also home to the Walton Yacht Club, Titchmarsh Marina and our RNLI Lifeboat Station.
