Lifesavers ride wave of support
City of Bunbury Surf Life Saving Club will be patrolling the city’s beaches to uphold safety and fun in the sun this summer. Surf lifesavers Jayden Reid-Smith, 13, Lucas, 7, and Jared Robertson, 6, Matt, 15, and Layne Devenish, 13, and club director of youth Neil Robertson encourage new members to join them at the registration day on Sunday.
THOSE keen to keep Bunbury beaches safe this summer are being called upon to register as a surf lifesaver.
City of Bunbury Surf Life Saving Club’s registration day is on Sunday and the club is encouraging new members to get involved.
President Denise Duncan said joining the club not only benefited the community but also offered numerous opportunities for individuals.
“Being a club member provides a variety of opportunities for everyone, including gaining qualifications that may one day save a life and equally allow you to patrol once every month,” Mrs Duncan said.
Mrs Duncan said the Back Beachbased group was truly a “club for everyone”.
“Keeping ourselves and others safe at the beach, making new friends and simply having fun is the key to our club’s success and it is both the old and new members who make this club a great place to be,” she said.
The club’s patrol season starts the first weekend of October and will cover the Back Beach and Koombana Bay along with roving patrols of Hungry Hollow and BP beaches.
Registration is from 11am to 2pm at the Bunbury Surf Club on Sunday.
Dalyellup Surf Life Saving Club’s registration day will be held on October 14 at Dalyellup Shopping Centre.
