The Australian Lifeguard Service and Tweed Shire Council will trial a new lifeguard service at the beach in front of the Kingscliff North Holiday Park this summer.
To cope with increasing beach attendance in the area an additional two lifeguards will be on duty over the peak Christmas/New Year holiday period.
The new service provision commenced on Thursday December 19, running daily from 9am to 6pm until Sunday January 12, 2014.
Far North Coast Lifeguard Supervisor, Jarrad Cain, welcomes the new trial to cope with the added summertime crowds.
‘With the added benefits of an additional two lifeguards at the northern end of the beach at Kingscliff we can ensure that the increasingly popular beach area in front of the holiday park remains safe during the peak Christmas/New Year period.’
