Flashback Friday | 2009

April was a busy month ten years ago in 2009, with sports and community events dominating the pages of the Eyre Peninsula Tribune.

Cleve locals descended on the showgrounds early in the month for the 101st annual Cleve Show, with entertainment from hurdy gurdys to bicycle races.

The Eastern Eyre Cricket Association and Kimba Cricket Association seasons concluded, with Rudall and Waddikee triumphant in their respective A grade Grand Finals.

Meanwhile footballers and netballers were gearing up for the beginning of the winter sport season, with a brand new netball court surface for Rudall.

At the end of the month, communities gathered in each town to mark ANZAC Day with marches and services at town war memorials.

The month was a good one for weddings, with community members tying the knot across the peninsula.
