Casuarina could become Salt outpost



CASUARINA'S beach safety committee might help set up a volunteer lifesaving "outpost".

But in the meantime, some Casuarina residents are helping bolster the newly formed Salt Surf Life Saving Club membership ranks.

More than 120 people, including many young children with their parents, attended a beach safety day on the sand at Casuarina yesterday.

Casuarina Recreation Club lifeguard Lisa Bolton gave advice and demonstrations on what to do in an emergency situation at the beach.

According to Casuarina beach safety committee member Peter Nielsen, in the Christmas-New Year break last year there were more people swimming between the flags at Casuarina than at Cabarita.

He said there were probably twice as many at Casuarina than at Cabarita this year.

Mr Nielsen said the beach safety day helped foster Casuarina's already strong community spirit.

Casuarina beach safety committee chairman Gordon Walker said the professional lifeguards at Casuarina were doing a great job but it was possible that in the future Casuarina might become a lifesaving "outpost" of the Salt club.

At the moment, Casuarina residents were joining the Salt club but Salt at this stage did not have enough members to provide lifesaving services at Casuarina, Mr Walker said.
