Coastal News - - Front Page - By MAX JONES Surf Life­guard

Whanga Week got off to a great start yes­ter­day with the ever pop­u­lar GJ Gard­ner 10km and 5km runs.

With plenty of events still on the cal­en­dar suit­able for peo­ple of all ages we’re ex­pect­ing a lot more ac­tion over the next few days, so come on down and give some­thing a go!

En­joy­ing the out­doors is ben­e­fi­cial for us all and Ju­nior Surf is a great way to keep kids happy and ac­tive.

If you haven’t al­ready, why not bring them down to try it out? Run by our team of qual­i­fied coaches ev­ery day at 10am from now ex­cept Satur­days, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, the pro­gramme is both ed­u­ca­tional and a whole lot of fun for chil­dren aged five to 13 years.

Thought about join­ing the club your­self? As­so­ciate mem­bers pay $30 which is not only a great way to sup­port the club it also en­ti­tles you to use the fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing the chang­ing rooms and show­ers and en­ables you to come along for a drink at the club bar and en­joy one of the best views Whanga­mata has to of­fer.

With­out the help of peo­ple who use the won­der­ful beach here we sim­ply couldn’t do what we do best — keep you and your loved ones safe while in the wa­ter.

Our an­nual col­lec­tion is Jan­uary 1 so please give gen­er­ously when the col­lec­tors come to you. They will be in uni­form or club vests, and help sup­port the club that sup­ports you.
