Preserving history

THE Ballina Lighthouse and Lismore Surf Life Saving Club has a long and proud history in Ballina and is keen to pay tribute to that in the new Lighthouse Beach clubhouse.

Club president Kris Beavis said construction of the clubhouse was expected to be completed in June and the club wanted to gather significant items of memorabilia to put on display.

The Ballina Surf Life Saving Club was formed in 1933.

Mr Beavis said the club had three national Hall of Fame inductees - Bob Newbiggin, Con Asmussen and the 1960s Ballina Surf rowing crew of Max Sidney, Brian Sidney, Cec Denny, Lance Goldsmith and Warren Tulk.
