Construction is well under
replace the old clubrooms that were built in the1950s, with a purpose
built clubhouse that meets the needs of a modern club- for both
lifeguarding and sports.
The new clubrooms will include(see
plans below): all gear storage at beach level, professional patrol
and first aid rooms, large changing rooms, showers and
lockers, spaces for training,
education, meetings and community
hire, lounge and kitchen for club members and for hire, ramp from
footpath to beach.
New public toilets and changing
rooms (funded by WCC), and outdoor showers and taps (a first for
Lyall Bay) will make Lyall Bay a more enjoyable beach for swimmers,
surfers and families to visit.
