Volunteer Beach Patrol Ends Early – NSWSLS Media Release Friday 27th March

Following SLSNSW’s recommendation, the Branch Executive have decided to adopt the recommendation and cease all patrols ending our season as of today, Friday March 27, 2020.

Support operations will continue to do surveillance and we ask that emergency call out teams remain available to be tasked.

We understand that this is an ever changing situation and some Clubs may not have had the change to take it to their membership however, in the circumstances, given debate and feedback, Branch are taking the view that the safety of our membership is paramount. Bilgola SLSC is closed effective immediately

We are also hoping that by not being present on our beaches, this will deter people from going in the hope that they will remain in isolation with the aim of ending this pandemic without adding more cases to the statistics.
