A COMBINED Ocean Grove SLSC and Point Lonsdale SLSC all star female surf patrol took control of Point Lonsdale surf beach on Sunday 10 January.
The day dubbed ‘Pink Zinc Patrol’ was a first for both Bellarine Peninsula-based surf life saving clubs as up to 30 female lifesavers kindly volunteered their services to do surf patrol on the day.
“The aim of this patrol was to encourage and celebrate the female patrolling members of Point Lonsdale and Ocean Grove SLSC’s and to promote female leadership within in these clubs and the Surf Life Saving community,” Pink Zinc Patrol Organiser, Simone White said.
State Labor Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville was a guest of honour on the day.
