NSW Nationals Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead has announced $101,579 to refurbish the ground floor of the Blackhead Surf Life Saving Club.

The funding, provided under the Infrastructure Grants Program, will include fit out of the ground floor with the addition of security, installation of a protective board and ski rack, fit out of first aid room, patrol room and the administration office. It will also allow the treatment of the brickwork that will prevent further decay of the club’s walls as well as areas around the public amenities.

Club President Dr Bruce White was ecstatic at the successful grant funding commenting that the improvements in the first aid room will allow the provision of primary care patients on site.

Dr White went on to say that with the continued upgrade of the club’s facilities with support of the Nationals in Government will ensure that the growth of club membership will continue.
