The Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey MP, has today announced $120,000 in funding for the Nambucca Heads Surf Life Saving Club as part of the NSW Government’s 2018/19 Surf Club Facility Program.

The funding is part of $3.9 million awarded for 24 projects to improve facilities and equipment at surf life saving clubs across NSW.

“I’m very pleased that the NSW Government is providing the funding of $120,000 to upgrade facilities at the surf club.

“Surf Life Saving NSW does immensely important work – saving lives and providing opportunities for people of all ages to get fit and healthy,” Mrs Pavey said.

“The aim of this program is to increase the availability, standard and quality of surf lifesaving clubs in NSW for the benefit of their members and the wider community.

“I congratulate the Nambucca Heads Surf Life Saving Club on its successful application and look forward to seeing the benefits of this upgrade.

“It gives me great pleasure to assist local Surf Clubs as they provide a vital service to our community.”

Minister for Sport, Stuart Ayres, said the Surf Club Facility Program supports surf club infrastructure across NSW.

“Surf life saving clubs are home to the tens of thousands of volunteer lifesavers who patrol our beaches across the state, and this funding means they will be able to do an even better job ensuring people are safe on our beaches,” Mr Ayres said.
