Redhead Surf Life Saving Club - Hansard

Redhead Surf Life Saving Club was recently awarded the national and New South Wales Surf Life Saving Rescue of the Month awards. Last November four ocean ski paddlers set out from Swansea and planned to come ashore at Redhead Beach. However, they found themselves in trouble near treacherous rocks in worsening conditions. Lifesavers at Redhead Surf Life Saving Club say the paddle boarders were in two-metre to three-metre swells. Through the dedicated work of local surf club members the paddle boarders were retrieved from the dangerous surf with no loss of life.

I recognise the actions of Tim Foran, Drew Morgan, Mark Ayre, Chris Bird, Jeff Rodway, Gavin Eckert and Iain Robertson, who worked together to achieve this great outcome. The national award was presented by Graham Ford, President of Surf Life Saving Australia. I also congratulate the members and executive of the Redhead Surf Life Saving Club on the great service they provide to the community.
