Nippers back on the beach next Sunday

AS summer and the school holidays approach rapidly, Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club is gearing up for another busy season for their Nippers.

There is a sign on day for new Nippers on Sunday September 22, with the club always keen to bolster their numbers.

Club president Darren Jones said last weekend's first sign on had been a great success with over 80 youngsters turning out to join or renew their membership.

"The club and all the Nippers are very keen to get back into the water as the weather warms up," Mr Jones said.

Nippers are where it all starts for surf clubs, signing on at a young age, a large portion of these keen water babies go on to be long term members of clubs all over the country, and of course without members to carry out beach patrols and other duties the clubs would struggle.

Following this weekend's sign on, the club will have an open day on Sunday September 29 where the club will be open to the public who will be able to see how they operate.
