Senator for New South Wales

  • Cudgen Surf Life Saving Club receives new equipment
  • Two new trailers will transport and house surf lifesaving equipment
  • The Coalition Government fully funded the $18,000 purchase

Beachgoers in Kingscliff, New South Wales, will benefit from more efficient lifesaving patrols of public beaches, thanks to a recent handover of equipment to the local surf club.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the Coalition Government had funded two new trailers for the Cudgen Surf Life Saving Club to transport and house surf lifesaving equipment.

“The new trailers mean surf lifesaving equipment can be put into action much faster than before,” Minister Nash said.

“I aim to build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren want to either stay in or come back to, and supporting local surf clubs does just that.”

Senator for New South Wales Concetta Fierravanti-Wells said the new equipment was handed over at the annual ‘Raising of the Flags’ event to celebrate the opening of the surf season.

“As a result of this project the Kingscliff coastal community will benefit from having better access to equipment, including summer sports teams,” Senator Fierravanti-Wells said.

“As the community enjoys the water this summer, they can rest assured that their surf life savers are properly equipped for the season.”

The Federal Coalition Government fully funded the equipment purchase.
