Cape Hawke Surf Live Saving Club has been granted $3000 from the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities program.
The funding will be used to create a new built-in barbecue and the installation of new security gates in the club’s courtyard.
The barbecue will be used for the weekly Nippers junior program to service lunch after events.
Security gates will protect the barbecue and enclose the area safely.
It will also be available for the U3A group who use the club facility daily but have no access to a barbecue.
It will also be available for other community groups that use the training room of the surf club adjacent to the courtyard regularly, as well as surf club members.
Member for Lyne Dr David Gillespie said the new facilities will benefit all those involved in the club.
“These facilities will provide a safe and shaded area to be used by the Nippers junior program, surf club members and community organisations,” Dr Gillespie said.
“The club, through its volunteer members, does a magnificent job looking after us all at the beach during the beach patrol season and I am delighted they have been successful in securing these funds so they can improve the facilities for the benefit of their members and the broader community.”
The total cost of the facilities is $6,160.
