Prime Minister Scott Morrison was there to cut the ribbon on Cronulla’s upgraded surf club last Saturday (26 Mar).

The St George and Illawarra Leader reported that Morrison said: “It’s not just a building – it’s a building that houses a culture.

“When young people come in those doors, they don’t just learn how to be great athletes, which they are, they don’t just learn the discipline of being a great athlete and what’s involved in that – what it’s like to be in a great team and support each other and all of those values, which are incredibly important – they learn about the culture of service,” he said.

Club president Chris Giles said: “I am part proud of the new facility and the way we have been able to keep faith with the heritage of this building and to this club while building a modern facility for the future is outstanding.

“What I am most proud of is the way our members have persevered through the challenges, operating out of shipping containers for the last three years. We are a stronger club for that experience,” he said.
