Ms HALL (ShortlandOpposition Whip) (16:17): I would like to take this opportunity to pay credit to all the surf clubs in the Shortland electorate. We are just coming towards the end of a very hot summer season when many residents flocked to the beaches and each of the surf clubs of Shortland—Redhead, Belmont, Swansea, Caves Beach, Catherine Hill Bay and Lakes on the Central Coast—has patrolled those beaches and kept those surfing there safe. Those surf clubs are composed of dedicated volunteers who are prepared to give up their time to patrol the beaches each and every weekend. They do it because they love the surf, they love the beach, they care for their community and they have a real community spirit. In addition to the patrolling of the beaches, they are also very involved in competition. I would like to congratulate all the members of those surf clubs for the outstanding results they have achieved throughout the season. I know that there are many of them who are part of those patrols have a 100 per cent attendance record for patrolling the beaches each and every weekend. From me to the surf lifesaving clubs in Shortland electorate—and around Australia, for that matter—I say a very big thank you.
