60th Birthday Party
27th April 1994 marked the 60th Birthday
walk of the club from The Thatcher's Arms.
The walk was promoted on BBC Essex during
Steve Scruton's Around Essex show on the
28th April 1994 and featured a taped
interview with Vic Hegarty.
The cake above was made by Gladys Harris,
June Rasdall and Phyllis Darton. It depicts,
Dick Goodman opening the pub door ( he was
always said to be first in), followed by Pam
Turrell in her oilskins and Madeleine Hook
in her straw boater. Peter Thomas is jumping
over the fence to get away from horses and
Stan Rasdall is chasing off the geese with
his walking stick.

Angela Beckett recalls "Stan Gulliver was
organising Boating and Bathing parties,
later described as ‘watersports parties‘ at
Mill Beach which continued through my child
hood. I have memories of the outdoor privy

also former members or in the photos"
