Trefoil Activities

May 1, 2021

The Ruff Diamond Trefoils continue to meet on a monthly basis, participating in different activities each time.


Ruff Diamond Trefoils Queenscliff pierIn March, several car loads of members travelled to Queenscliff for a day out, starting with a visit to Fort Queenscliff for a tour of one of the largest and best preserved forts in the Australia. The tour included fantastic views over Port Philip, the ammunition magazines buried under the cliffs of Shortland’s Bluff and the jail.  The museum displayed a collection of artifacts, weapons, medals, military awards, documents and photographs. It was really impressive to meet the museum curator, a female sergeant in the Australian Army.  Sergeant Helen Jenner has held the position of curator for 15 years.

Lunch at the beach town, of course, was fish and chips, followed by a stroll through the streets for some light shopping. A prompt retreat along South Pier was needed when there was a sudden downpour.  The rain subsided to allow a lovely walk to Queenscliff Harbour. Some even managed a walk to the top of the 40 metre Observation Tower.


Sponge Baking

April’s session was a fun afternoon of baking sponges with Sarah.


The Ruff Diamond Trefoils were formed in 2020 during the Covid lockdown so their activities have included cooking and craft via Zoom as well as face-to-face sessions for meals or gatherings.  Membership includes current volunteer Guide Leaders, previous Guide Leaders, Guide mums and others who enjoy the company and activities.

New membership enquiries are welcome.
