Life savers double as removalists

THE surf life saving season might be finished, but members of the Ballina Lighthouse and Lismore Surf Life Saving Club are as busy as ever.

That's because they are in the process of moving their equipment from Lighthouse Beach over to Shelly Beach.

Within the next two months, the Lighthouse Beach car park will become a construction zone, with Ballina Shire Council recently giving approval for the new, $5.8 million surf club.

Club president Kris Beavis said it was a huge milestone.

"It's a very exciting time for the future of our club - this is something we have been waiting a long time for," he said.

Work is expected to start in June, and will be finished 12 months later.
