Justine Elliot MP was in Byron Bay last week to announce that the Byron Bay Surf Life Saving Club will receive a $10,000 boost in federal funding.
The grant has been delivered under the Stronger Communities grant program.
Ms Elliot says the funding will go towards the refurbishment of the Surf Club’s amenities block. ‘The amenities block is widely used by club members, community groups, sporting groups, schools and the wider community,’ she said.
‘The Byron Bay Surf Club provides a vital service for our community and for the more than two million visitors to Byron Bay each year.
‘The Club has a membership of more than 800 people.’
Ms Elliot says she is thrilled to be able to support the Byron Bay Surf Life Saving Club through the Stronger Communities grant because of the valuable contribution they provide to our community.
‘We’re so fortunate to have such active, committed and diverse community groups across our region and I look forward to continue working together to make our area an even better place to live.’
