The Sussex surf club was saved from the brink of closure earlier this month.
The club’s senior membership had dropped to a point where they could not meet the minimum number of people required to patrol Cudmirrah Beach.
A meeting involving members of the executive from Surf Lifesaving South Coast branch decided to allow the surf club to patrol on a limited number days over the Christmas holidays.
Club president Dave Tarbert said the club members were pleased with the limited patrol days they were given at this stage.
“It is basically school holidays and public holidays and this helps us tremendously,” he said.
Mr Tarbert said the club would approach the schools in the Bay and Basin area, sports clubs and encourage parents of the club’s junior members, to become actively involved.
“We are going to approach the local sporting teams to consider joining us as a way for their players to keep fit in summer,” he said.
“Most of our Nippers’ parents are aged between 20 and 40 years and they are the people who can be trained up to become life savers.
“In the last week we picked up another five people willing to help.
“We’ve got about 15 members, some need a refresher, some need new training but at least now the light at the end of the tunnel is not the oncoming train,” Mr Tarbert said.
