Opening of Stage 2 of the Surf Lifesaving Far North Coast Facility Upgrade
Greens Member for Ballina Tamara Smith will open the new administration training and education centre for Surf Lifesaving Far North Coast at Shelly Beach on Saturday 22 October.
“I am delighted to be able to open this centre. The facility will enable professional staff to carry out and coordinate lifesaving activities in the Northern Rivers. It will also be a point of contact for the public and marine rescue groups that has not previously been available,” said Ms Smith.
“Surf Lifesaving Far North Coast has one of the longest coastlines in NSW to provide surf rescue to. First opened in 2013, the Ballina Lighthouse & Lismore Surf Lifesaving Club provides over 5000 hours of voluntary patrol hours each season.
“Surf Lifesaving clubs also run training and education services for the public, volunteer lifesaving services and act as a community hub.
“Most of the work is done by volunteers and the club couldn’t operate without the help of selfless community members,” said Ms Smith.
Funding for this facility has come from a range of sources including a $61,000 Grant from NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program
