Yamba Surf Life Saving Club will receive $58,610 in funding under the NSW Government’s Surf Club Facility Program to upgrade facilities at its clubhouse, Clarence Nationals MP, Chris Gulaptis announced last week. Mr Gulaptis said the funding will go towards the upgrade of the Club’s kitchen, including commercial-grade appliances, and the installation of a cool room. “I am thrilled Yamba SLSC has been successful in its application under this Program. “The aim of the program is to increase the availability, standard and quality of surf lifesaving clubs in NSW for the benefit of their members and the wider community,” Mr Gulaptis said. “I know the clubhouse is used by the community for a wide range of purposes not only for surf lifesaving events but also weddings and birthday celebrations so it is highly utilised. “It’s a great pleasure to assist local clubs by providing the funds to increase the availability, standard and quality of sport facilities in my electorate,” Mr Gulaptis said.
