Normanville Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) is set to receive a $3.5 million upgrade, courtesy of $385,000 worth of funding from the Club, $1.96 million from the state government and $1.155 million from Yankalilla Council.
The building will also welcome a $1.6 million cafe and $300,000 worth of works to create a new rear entry that will update its safety and disability access standards, bringing the total renovation cost up to $5.4 million.
The upgrade is part of an $11.7 million redevelopment of the Normanville foreshore that also includes a new kiosk, about 20 new cabins in the caravan park, about 20 new cabins at the local caravan park, a nature play area, public plaza and boardwalk upgrade. Work on the foreshore is expected to commence around March 2022.
Normanville SLSC President Dave Jansen told Adelaide Now that the Club’s current facilities “aren’t very good at all” with problems including damage to balustrades and decking.
“It’s one of the last clubs to be developed in the state,” he said.
“It will allow us to have weddings and funerals. We have about 10 to 12 community groups who use the clubhouse and that will continue when it’s built.”
