Northern Beaches MP Jason Falinski has been asked to Co-Chair the Parliamentary Friendship group of Surf Life Saving Australia. CEO of Surf Life Saving Australia, Adam Weir offered Mr Falinski the role off the back of a successful year for the Northern Beaches Clubs.
“It is a pleasure to be Co-Chair of the parliamentary friends of Surf Life Saving. The clubs do an amazing job keeping our beaches safe and deserve a lot of praise.” Mr Falinski said.
“Mackellar has the most number of Surf Life Saving Club’s in a single electorate and don’t I know it when AGM and award season comes around!”
Avalon SLSC was named ‘Club of the Year’ for 2018 and recently celebrated the exciting achievement. Mr Falinski attended their recent celebrations along with the Board of SLSA and the club members.
“Congratulations to club president Ashley Cardiff and all the members on your award. It is great that the Northern Beaches are leading the way in Surf Life Saving across Australia. I look forward to the start of the next season.”
Mr Falinski is the club patron of Whale Beach and Long Reef SLSCs but has a close relationship with all the Northern Beaches clubs.
“A special thank you to Whale Beach and Long Reef surf clubs on their excellent year and for having me on board as your patron.”
Mr Falinski was successful earlier in the year in his fight to secure $2 million for the upgrade of the Long Reef SLS club house.
In his new role as Co-Chair of the Parliamentary Friends of SLSA, Mr Falinski looks forward to working closely with all the surf clubs from Palm Beach down to Manly and advocating for SLSA across the country.
