Corrimal and Port Kembla surf life saving clubs were de-registered on Friday, just one week into the new volunteer season. Surf Life Saving NSW announced both clubs would be de-registered due to their opposition to mandatory Sunday beach patrols.
On Sunday, members from both clubs discussed how to continue community involvement and beach sustainability.
“We still intend on maintaining a presence at our club and we’re investigating all of those opportunities,” Corrimal SLSC President Tony Cartwright said.
“We’re keenly interested in seeing the dunes improve.”
“Surf Life Saving, please re-engage with us … we really want to resolve this matter.”
At Corrimal SLSC alone, more than 200 nippers are affected by de-registration.
“Surf Life Saving, please re-engage with us … we really want to resolve this matter,” Mr Cartwright said.
