This year the club had 33 volunteer patrolling members who patrolled for a total of 2,169.42 hours, with 828 preventative actions taken.
Moore Park Beach Surf Life Saving Club President Leigh Schuch said that the club was proud to celebrate the achievements of their volunteers over the past season.
“We have a small number of dedicated volunteers who work together to provide a valuable service to the visitors and locals of the Moore Park Beach community,” Ms Schuch said.
“It has been great to see the young and some not so young members having fun and learning new life skills along the way throughout the season.”
With a range of projects in the pipeline for the next season including an upgrade to the club house, Leigh said it would be an exciting year to be part of the club.
“It has been great working with Bundaberg Regional Council around the Moore Park Beach Master Plan and stage 1, which involves moving towards building a new club house,” Ms Schuch said.
“The official surf life saving season commences again on Saturday 18 September 2021 and we will have sign on days in the lead up to this.”
