Scar­boro SLSC gets $3000 for au­dio-vis­ual

Stirling Times - - Front Page -

IN its 90th year, Scar­boro Surf Life Sav­ing Club mem­bers are get­ting ready to move into new clu­b­rooms and have re­ceived a $3000 grant to up­grade their train­ing room.

Club pres­i­dent Alan Carville said the fund­ing from de­vel­oper 3 Oceans Prop­erty would go to­wards fit­ting out the club’s train­ing room with au­dio-vis­ual equip­ment which would also ben­e­fit com­mu­nity first aid cour­ses.

Mr Carville said the club had come through a chal­leng­ing pe­riod dur­ing con­struc­tion, op­er­at­ing out of ship­ping con­tain­ers at the north­ern end of the beach.

“We’ve been one of the strong­est clubs on the coast­line up un­til very re­cently with the down­turn and not hav­ing club rooms is hard,” he said.

“The most im­por­tant thing is do­ing pa­trols on the beach and we’ve man­aged to do that pretty well over the time we’ve been work­ing out of the con­tain­ers down the other end of the beach.

“Once we get through this sum­mer it will be a club where every­one will want to be a mem­ber with new spick and span rooms and the pool.”

Mr Carville said the club rooms should be func­tional by the 2018 Aussies Aus­tralian Surf Life Sav­ing Cham­pi­onships in April and he ex­pected to be mov­ing gear in from De­cem­ber - Jan­uary.­mu­ni­ d474636
