You may have seen the request in recent weeks for volunteers to run the bar on Saturday afternoons. While this did not receive the level of support we were hoping for, it has provided enough volunteers to trial this approach.
As surf lifesaving is primarily a summer pastime, we know the winter months mean less visitors to the club and less trade. History tells us Thursday and Friday bistro and Sunday afternoons remain more popular with members and the public, while Saturdays often see family commitments, winter sports and weather conditions keeping people away.
Our function business is slowly starting to pick up and we are working to grow this in the coming months, our goal is to make Saturday operations more sustainable and continue to provide a place for members to catch up and stay connected, our volunteer staffing model and adjustment to opening hours supports this.
How can you support this? We ask if you have a free Saturday and an hour or two spare, please come down and support our club.
