MEMBER for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, said that she was pleased that the grant to the Ocean Beach Surf Club will enable the club to focus on keeping beachgoers safe.
“The funding will be used to replace two damaged roller doors. Being unsafe and faulty, the funding ensures that the surf club can focus on keeping our lifeguards and beachgoers safe," Ms Tesch said.
“The work the surf club does is important. Ensuring the club is safe and welcoming is pivotal to allowing the club to focus on safety this summer.”
President of the Club, Dean Slattery, says the funding will ensure the club can invest in training and safety.
“The current roller doors are chain operated and are faulty. The funding will make the surf club environment a lot safer.
“Without the investment of the CBP, funding would have been taken away from training and safety equipment.”
Ms Tesch says the funding will ensure the prosperity for the surf club.
“The surf club celebrated 100 years last year, and the funding ensures the prosperity for the surf club.”
