Vale Ray Fuller
Today we lowered our flag to half mast to mourn the passing of Raymond Fuller, who passed away on 12 August 2020 after a brief illness. Ray received his 60 year Long Service award in 2017 after joining on the 9th Feb 1953.
Ray, who has lived in recent years on the Queensland Gold Coast, was 83 years of age. Our condolences to his wife Patti and family. Due to Covid 19 restrictions, it is expected that there will be private family arrangements.

Bondi Surf Club Conservation and Upgrade Project
COMMUNITY CONSULTATION – HAVE YOUR SAY
We need your advice!
The club has been working with Council for over 5 years to develop a robust Conservation Management Plan for our Heritage clubhouse, and also meet the needs of an active lifesaving club by addressing accessibility challenges, equal female to male facilities, space for nippers and to encourage interaction with the community.
The Council is now preparing to start the consultation process and you can sign up to be kept up to date. This is your chance to remind the community of the important role of our club, so please get involved.

Today we remember Tom Meagher, one of our club greats.
Meagher Patrol is named after Tom Meagher O.B.E, who was said to have lived “for SLSA and what it stands for”. He is one of our great club legends, received many awards for bravery and was awarded Life Membership to Bondi SBLSC in 1932. Meagher was Chief Beach Inspector at Bondi on Black Sunday (6 February 1938). He saw service in the Pacific during World War II and established the Solomon Islands Surf Club in 1944 along with Carl Jeppeson. There were many SLSA Instructional Teams on which he served and in 1939 he represented Bondi in the SLSA of Australia March Past Team. In 1954 Tom Meagher was presented to HM Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Command Surf Carnival held on Bondi Beach. Tom held the position of President of Surf Life Saving NSW. He was a healthy man, who never drank or smoked, a great leader who led by example.
