Surf reserve on the crest of a wave



LENNOX HEAD beach users are invited to a public meeting today to hear details of a proposal to declare Lennox Point a National Surfing Reserve.

Surfer and Ballina Shire councillor Alan Rich, who is chairman of the steering committee set up to have the proposal approved by the State Government, said a presentation would be made explaining:

l That a national surfing reserve is a symbolic recognition of the importance of an area to surfing's heritage and future.

l Why Lennox is so important in the history of surfing.

l How the reserve proposal affects only surfing and that all other activities will legally continue.

l What has been proposed so far.

l Where this idea came from and who are involved in the committee.

l The history of surfing in the area.

l The proposed reserve boundaries.

l Planning for the dedication ceremony, and

l What is planned for the reserve if and when approved.

The steering committee for the Lennox Point National Surfing Reserve first met in June after an approach was made to Cr Rich by the National Surfing Reserves Trust to have the area declared a surfing reserve.

The meeting will be held from 4pm at the Lakeside Meeting Room (over the boat shed) at the Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre.
