Elouera Surf Life Saving Club is celebrating the completion of a $800,000 upgrade, with $320,000 contributed by the NSW Government.
$300,000 of the work was funded through the Surf Club Facility Program, which assists surf life saving clubs across NSW to upgrade, restore and construct facilities. $20,000 was made available through the Community Building Partnership program, which funds local community groups to improve their facilities.
I’m delighted to see the newly completed ground floor facilities at Elouera.
Our surf lifesaving volunteers are committed to protecting our community, and it’s important they have fit-for-purpose facilities.
I congratulate the Elouera Surf Life Saving Club board for its vision of providing excellent facilities that help its volunteers feel valued.
Club volunteers will benefit from improved amenities, training room, administration office, first aid room and gymnasium.
The upgrade will help the club’s efforts to be inclusive for everyone, doubling the size of female amenities to provide more change room space for mums and children participating in the club’s programs.
There have also been improvements to accessible change rooms, which will make it easier for special needs nippers to participate.
The NSW Government has allocated $4 million for the next round of the Surf Club Facility Program, which is now open to applications from surf clubs.
