Cudgen SLSC crew at work
THE Tooheys New Crew has been getting its hands dirty this week with renovations to Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club.
The crew, led by rugby league legend Paul Harragon, has set out to do a million beer’s worth of favours for communities in need.
Club chairman David Field said the community was looking forward to seeing the club’s downstairs facilities when the renovations were revealed with an official ceremony today.
“We got a lot of people passing by today, having a peer in, but we’re expecting almost 200 people tomorrow,” he said.
Mr Field said he was grateful to the crew for the upgrade to facilities, as much of the club’s focus had been on the recent erosion.
“In recent times we’ve had to direct a lot of energy towards dealing with our erosion problems,” Mr Field said.
“This will help to significantly improve the club.”
The crew has also challenged the surf lifesavers to a surf boat race this afternoon.
