Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, today encouraged surf clubs to apply to the NSW Government’s Surf Club Facilities Program which opened today to help fund upgrade and maintenance of surf club facilities.
Mr Fraser said the program aims to maintain the safety of surf life saver volunteers as they serve the community.
“The Surf Club Facilities Program provides funding for facilities in the Coffs Harbour electorate and across NSW,” Mr Fraser said.
“We all know how important surf life savers are to beach side communities both through protecting us when we swim and providing opportunities for a diverse range of people to give back through volunteering.”
“Our local surf life savers also benefit through maintaining health and fitness while enjoying our beautiful beaches.”
Types of projects that will be funded include:
· construction of new surf club facilities;
· capital enhancement of the facilities at existing clubs; and
· providing ancillary and support facilities at existing venues.
Applications open on 21 December 2016 and close 10 February 2017.
