Funding for Coffs Harbour Surf Lifesaving Club

Regarding today’s announcement by Labor of funding for the Coffs Harbour Surf Lifesaving Club, media should be aware of the following facts.

In 2007, the Coalition Government committed $269,500 towards the renovations of the club.

After the 2007 election Minister Albanese withdrew that funding. This made it extremely difficult for the club to raise the funds to complete the project.

Today’s announcement hands back the money which was withdrawn in 2007.

I congratulate the Coffs harbour Surf Lifesaving Club for their invaluable service to the community.
