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.
