Hunter Surf Life Saving raises flags with new Newcastle Permanent partnership

We've welcomed the season by announcing new three-year partnership with Hunter Surf Life Saving.

Tuesday 4 October, 2016.

Saturday 23 September saw Surf Life Saving Clubs around the country raise the iconic red and yellow flags to welcome another safe summer on our beaches. Amid the ceremonial first raising of patrol flags for the 2016/17 season, representatives from the 13 Hunter Surf Life Saving clubs between Catherine Hill Bay and Tea Gardens gathered on Newcastle Beach to celebrate our new partnership.  

Hunter Surf Life Saving President, Henry Scruton, said it was the beginning of an exciting era for the region’s surf life saving volunteers. “Hunter Surf Life Saving has a long history of support from Newcastle Permanent through our 35 year relationship, and we’re very excited about the benefits this new major partnership will provide for the community as we begin our 2016/17 summer patrols." 

“Hunter Surf Life Saving volunteers are passionate about protecting our beaches, and with the generous support of Newcastle Permanent we are able to provide training, equipment and support to more than 7,343 surf life saving volunteers throughout our region,” Mr Scruton said.

Our ongoing partnership with Hunter Surf Life Saving is built on a strong foundation of shared values and commitment to the community.

“We recognise the vital service volunteer surf life savers provide within the region and through this partnership our goal is to help Hunter Surf Life Saving continue its great work supporting clubs, volunteers and the wider community," Mr Millett said.

We’re proud to support Surf Life Saving from the Central Coast to the Queensland border through its partnerships with the six regional Surf Life Saving branches, including 60 SLS clubs.
