Council Summer Lifeguard Program 2021-2022

The 2021-2022 Summer Lifeguard Program commenced at 8 locations across our Shire on Monday 20th December 2021 and finished on Monday 31st January 2022. The Australian Lifeguard Service (ALS) have once again delievered a high level of service to our community throughought the summer period, keeping our beaches safe.

Council would also like to acknowledge the hard work of the Tathra Chamber of Commerce, and wider Tathra Community, who fundraise each year to extend the provision of the lifeguard service at Tathra beach through to the last weekend of February.

This year, Bendigo Bank- Pambula & Bega Branches committed additional funding for two years to cover additional service dates required due to the scheduled NSW Government's school holiday period.
