Young ‘Carer’ locates elderly swimmer in convalescent park!


“Ken, Where have you been? Are you OK? Missing you at the beach”. ‘Carer’

From the Crescent Heads Convalescent Park

This was a lovely message to receive. To think someone was thinking of me up here among the unemployed, elderly and grey nomads.


We arrived last Monday. On Tuesday an elderly couple arrived and set up camp next us. Asked me about my BK surf board. Went on to introduce themselves, Bob and Chris Kirby from Burrill Lakes. Come Thursday a couple set up camp on the other side of us and it was Terry and Bev Conran from Burrill Lakes. Later I met the people opposite us, they were from Broulee and were heading home to attend a surf comp at Mollymook’s Golf Course Reef on the Saturday. (Small world)


He went missing during the night and after spending much time out searching for him, once found he spent the rest of his holiday in detention.

New Swim Wear for 2014-2015.

Karelle uses her imagination for this magnificent sunrise banner incorporating the surf club sign.


Anne- Marie was on the spot to capture this very unusual photograph emerging from the sea, a mystery man. Was it a plane? Was it a bird? Looking a little worried after realizing there were no phone booths nearby, he just stood there in front of us all and brazenly donned his cloak. There was no mistaking, ”It was Superman”!!


Local model and surf club member Lekshe Losil, modelling the latest swim wear ready to hit the market for the 2014-2015 surfing season as fashion designers step outside the square to introduce something entirely different for the men to wear this summer.


We now wait in anticipation for Cheryl to unveil a variety of swim wear designed for the ladies this summer. 



“Oh no, I missed that! Is this a challenge for the other male members to turn up in their superhero outfits? I believe Cheryl is already sporting her Wonder Woman outfit”. Louise M.

“That’s terrific! That was so funny. What a good sport!. Now I cant wait for us girls to don on our superb new swim wear!!! Thanks to Cheryl”. Is 

Graeme’s birthday revisited

Swimmers night out at the Pool Bar.


Graeme’s Birthday REVISITED!

Roving correspondent; Roscoe files this report:  After a great day at Ceto’s last week Helen requested “can we do it again with Ross & Jo and anyone else that wants to catch up” The Harvest Bar was suggested but the “carers” were going there with their work colleagues from their other job, so as not to embarrass them Bannister’ s Pool Bar was the call. Graham and Debbie were invited to make up for the big birthday event that he didn’t attend, so the evening started off with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday to Graham and it was all downhill from there!
Although the principal carers were not in attendance there were sufficient deputies to ensure an almost one on one ratio! NSW Health take note. And were they needed, almost immediately the seniors started to wander off from the enclosure, (private room), and proceeded to jump around the place in the belief that they were dancing to the music. The carers soon joined in on the dance floor and kept a watchful eye on their charges in case of any falls or injuries. A couple of noted performances were Jacqui “maracas” and dancing Dougie although some believe he was only trying to get to the bathroom!
The only down side to the night was the Birthday boy thinking we had bought him there as a present, he not only ordered extra takeaway but shot through without paying! Ulladulla police have been notified and are investigating.
All in all a great night was had by all, John Louth was last seen sneaking out for a “toke “ with some stranger who gate crashed the party.
