Several surf clubs across the Northern Beaches have received revamps ahead of summer, benefiting clubbies and the general public.

Dee Why

This week will see the re-opening of the busy public amenities block at northern end of Dee Why Beach. The internal refit and upgrade have made efficient use of the space allowing for additional toilets. 

The surf club next door has four new roller doors, making it easier and safer to access to the club’s essential lifesaving equipment.

Bungan

During winter, Council installed a ramp to one of the garages at Bungan Surf Club to allow easier movement of trailers in and out of storage.

Bilgola

Bilgola Surf Club had an accessible toilet installed to the upper level which is now available for wheelchair users. A section over the caretaker’s apartment was also re-roofed.  

Narrabeen

Also during the cooler months, Narrabeen Surf Lifesaving Club underwent $200k worth of repairs to sections of structural steel. Club members also took the opportunity to renovate the floor in the main hall.

South Narrabeen

South Narrabeen Surf Lifesaving Club underwent alterations to the rear stairs improving access to the café. A new awning is being installed on rear deck and will provide shade and shelter from the elements.

This is in addition to a lift, levelling the path for accessibility and changes to the carpark to create extra accessible spaces.  

What next?

There are plenty more small improvements scheduled this financial year, including a new accessible lift at Queenscliff and large projects to re-build both Mona Vale and Long Reef Surf Lifesaving Clubs where works are due to commence in 2021.
