NSW SLS Excellence Awards
A special message to our Far South Coast Lifesavers, Clubbies, Nippers, family, friends and Sponsors,
I am so proud to inform you all that you have been recognised at the highest level for your outstanding efforts and support in keeping our beaches safe and building better communities through our surfclubs.
At the SLS NSW Awards of Excellence on Saturday night we were AGAIN awarded the SLSNSW Branch of the Year for the 2018/2019 season. Back to back for the FSC.
The FSC was shortlisted from the 11 Branches in the State and selected as one of only 4 finalists along with the Far North Coast, Central Coast and Sydney Branch.
Within our small Far South Coast towns and communities, our surf clubs are the glue that helps to keep our coastal communities working and playing together and our beautiful beaches safe.
On the same night we were so proud to be presented with no less than 3 additional major awards:
- SLS NSW Volunteer of the Year went to Wendy Law from the Broulee Surfers SLSC and the FSC Director of Finance
- SLS NSW Presidents Medal went to Cheryl McCarthy, Bermagui SLSC and the FSC Director of Lifesaving
- SLS NSW Innovation of the Year Award went to the FSC - Development of Joint Operations Search and Rescue Capability.
We also had several other nominees who did an outstanding job during the season.
Thank you all of our lifesavers for contributing your valuable time and supplying the social capital that's required by our surf life saving clubs to be able to continue to build great Australians and better communities.
Not resting on our laurels and with your continued help, we look forward to another cracking season and hope to catch you on the beach soon.
Very proud President
FSC Branch SLS
