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.

EASTERN SUBURBS COVID
As you are aware the Eastern Suburbs now has a number of new cases, and the lines at the Bondi testing station are very large. The Club wishes to stay open for members but needs everyones vigilance and compliance to remain in operation.
There were 4 club members at the Apollo restaurant last Thursday night, and unbeknownst to them this was a site where a staff member had an infection. They have all been tested and all 4 have tested negative, but given they were at a known infection hotspot they will need to remain in isolation until the 7th August. I thank them all for their rapid notice to the club of their situation, in different circumstances this could have lead to a widespread outbreak amongst our members and they should be congratulated and supported.
The club closed between Monday evening and Wednesday morning while we are awaiting results from these members to ensure that both the club and our emergency call out teams would not be impacted by any potential infection spread.
We are overjoyed that our members tested negative but it is a timely reminder of the need for all members of the community to ensure they are following all Covid precautions to protect themselves and the community￼￼. ...
