Surf club uses grant to buy tractor

Umina Beach Surf Life Saving Club has gained funding to purchase a new tractor though the NSW Government's My Community Grants program.

The tractor will be used to transport life saving equipment on the beach for each patrol.

Club president Mr Stephen Scahill said the tractor would play a vital role in the club's operations for many years to come.

"Our old tractor, donated by Everglades Country Club, served us for over 17 years," he said.

"However, with the safety of our patrolling members in mind, it was time for us to find a new solution.

"This allocation was based on community voting."

Mr Scahill said the club was thankful for the community support.

"Our case was no doubt aided by the wonderful support and enthusiasm provided by Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.

"Liesl took the time to understand the situation we were facing, the safety concerns we held over the deteriorating conditions of our current tractor and the importance such a vehicle plays in transporting critical lifesaving equipment."
