As part of the Surf Club Facility Fund, Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, announced applications are now open for surf life saving club infrastructure improvements.
Now $4m is available and the funding boost is set to provide better facilities for the general public, as well as club members. “Surf life saving clubs play a key role in our community, and I encourage all clubs in the Terrigal electorate, Killcare, Macmasters Beach, Copacabana, Avoca Beach, North Avoca, Terrigal and Wamberal, to consider applying for this funding opportunity,” Crouch said. Minister for Sport, Stuart Ayres, said more than $28m in funding had been allocated in the past decade to make club facilities across NSW safer, accessible and secure.
“Not just an important home base for volunteers patrolling our beaches, surf clubs are a hive of community activity, used for training courses, community gatherings and sporting events,” Ayres said,” he concluded.
