Grants to lifesaving club
A local surf lifesaving club has received more than $25,000 in grant funding from the NSW Government.
Killcare Surf Life Saving Club has received $25,670 through the government's Community Building Partnership and Local Sport grants programs.
Member for Terrigal Mr Adam Crouch said $20,000 of the funding was secured to improve internet connectivity at the surf club.
Another $5000 was provided for the club to purchase wet weather jackets for patrol members.
"The remaining $670 was provided to fund training programs," Mr Crouch said.
Club president Mr Peter Bagnall said the funding was most welcome and would go a long way to improving the club's internet connectivity issues.
"As we all know, communication around the club is limited by being positioned in a documented mobile phone black spot area.
"It is therefore essential that we have access to fast and reliable communication to ensure the ongoing safety of everyone on the beach," Mr Bagnall said.
