Message promotes patrolled beaches

TWEED beachgoers have once again been given the message to swim between the flags or don't swim at all.

This is the message of a free promotional card launched yesterday at Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club by the Tweed Beach Safety Liaison Committee.

The inside of the folded card has a map of the Tweed Coast marking the locations of patrolled beaches, as well as the dates they are patrolled throughout the year.

Committee chairman Councillor Kevin Skinner said the location of patrolled beaches and information about when these beaches are patrolled needed reinforcing.

“This card provides Tweed-specific information which will be of great benefit to the many people who visit the Tweed to enjoy our excellent swimming beaches,” Cr Skinner said.

“Cudgen Headland SLSC is about to host the Allphones 2011 NSW Surf Life Saving Championships with the assistance of Tweed Shire Council, and this is an ideal opportunity to distribute these cards to the thousands of visitors the event will attract.”
