A FLURRY of red and purple descended on Elizabeth Quay on August 2 as the Red Hats group held an unofficial send-off for one of its members.

Social group member Anna Eastment said the women, all over 50 and sporting red and purple hats and clothes, stormed Betty’s Jetty for a day of colourful fun and activities.

The group was treated to discounts by Elizabeth Quay vendors.

They took a few spins on the carousel and met with Joondalup MLA Emily Hamilton, who presented them with a key to the Quay, before they took off for a ride on the ferry.

Ms Eastment said one member was due to head overseas and wanted to ride the carousel before she left.
