Port Kembla Surf Club has received $15,839 from the Port Kembla Community Investment Fund to redesign the Club House. At present, the Club House is separated into two rooms, so the plan is to remove the wall that separates these rooms, to create a larger open space. This will allow the Club to cater for presentations and events. Providing newer facilities at the Surf Club is essential to retaining junior members and ensuring the Club are able to patrol the beaches over the summer periods.
This project is being undertaken in stages, the first of which involves planning and project scoping for the renovation. A design will be drafted and submitted to Wollongong Council for DA assessment. The next stage of the project involves applying to the second round of the Port Kembla Community Investment Fund to cover the construction costs.
