Redhead Surf Life Saving Club Presentation Day

Having just come from the meeting of the Parliamentary Friends of Surf Life Saving, I am pleased to bring to the attention of the House that on 21 May I had the pleasure of attending Redhead Surf Life Saving Club Presentation Day. The presentation of awards highlighted another successful year for the relatively small club, both at a competition level as well as protecting beachgoers at the iconic Redhead Beach.

I congratulate the following members who have subsequently been nominated for Hunter Branch Awards of Excellence in each of the following categories: Steve Foggett, Life Saver of the Year; Boyd Conrick, Volunteer of the Year; Drew Blatchford, Coach of the Year; Gail Evans, Official of the Year; Lachlan Steffner, Young Life Saver of the Year; Nicola Owen Young, Young Female Athlete; Andrew Wright, Trainer of the Year; Daniel Collins, Senior Male Athlete; Lili Costello, Senior Female Athlete; Ethan Whiteman, Master; Marilyn Clarence, Master; and Lily, Seraina and Milly, Team of the Year.

To top off the year, two of the club's members secured places in the Nutri-Grain National Ironman Series. Congratulations to Daniel Collins and Isak Costello. Well done.
