Three Bate Bay surf life saving clubs will share almost $700,000 in grants for upgrades in the NSW Government’s 2020-21 Surf Club Facility Program.
Our local surf clubs are among the most important community groups in the Shire.
Surf club volunteers play a vital role in keeping our beaches safe. In any typical season, our four Bate Bay clubs collectively provide over 40,000 hours of active duty, scores of rescues and many thousands of preventative actions, as well as first aid.
This year’s grants are:
- Elouera Surf Life Saving Club – ground floor refurbishment – $302,500.
- Wanda Surf Life Saving Club – replacement of clubhouse roof, solar panel system and mechanical components on the roof – $236,466.
- North Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club – fit out of equipment and gear storage facilities – $150,000.
Previous years’ Surf Club Facility Program grants include $500,000 to Cronulla (new clubhouse), $350,000 to North Cronulla (new clubhouse) and $91,000 to Wanda (male toilets and change rooms).
