The NSW Government has granted North Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club $412,000 for upgrades to its internal pool as well as new solar panels, battery storage and pool heating system.

Wanda Surf Life Saving Club has also been granted $148,000 for its watercraft and surf sports equipment storage system.

The grants are part of the $3.6 million 2021-22 round of the Government’s Surf Club Facility Program.

This follows previous government grants of $570,000 to North Cronulla; $500,000 to Cronulla; $370,000 to Elouera and $400,000 to Wanda, towards facilities upgrades.

I’m delighted that the Government can help iconic institutions whose dedicated volunteers donate tens of thousands of hours each year to patrolling the beach to keep us safe, educating our kids on water safety and promoting healthy, active lifestyles for so many.

It’s important that the clubs have the modern facilities they need to do this work.
