It is official. Supporters Club President Mr John Greaney is delighted to announce the new development for Rainbow Beach Surf Club.

“The most exciting part is the new modern facilities for our active members,” John says.

“The Lifesaving Club will have a standalone building which will give our members modern accommodation and training facilities, more storage, showers etc.”

The development will include a kitchen, meeting room, training room, storage, dorms, access for people with disabilities, lounge rooms and more.

“It will house two dorms, one with 16 beds and one with 20 beds, and will be 460 square metres in total.”

The purpose of all the changes is that the space and its usage is well past it’s use by date. “The training room is inadequate for modern training methods,” John explains.. “Dorms are badly in need of replacement.”

The Lifesaving Club is very grateful for receiving  a grant from Qld. Sport and Recreation for $100,000 which will go towards the building.

Council have also provide a $3,000 grant to purchase furniture for training room.

“Council have supported the development plan and are keen to see our club progress in this way.”

The building firm hasn’t been decided yet as the Club is in the tendering process at the moment, but everyone is looking forward to the work commencing.

This work is good news for the Supporter’s Club. “By the Lifesaving Club vacating the existing building it will give the Supporters Club the much needed floor space to expand and grow,” John continues, “so it can continue to provide the funds that the Lifesaving Club requires to patrol Rainbow Beach.”
