CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATES & RESOURCES FOR WANDA MEMBERS
With the current Coronavirus emergency continuing to escalate, we feel it is important to provide as much information to you that is relevant in your role as lifesavers, emergency first responders and community members.
Wanda’s Board of Directors will keep members up to date as information becomes available.
20/05/20 – notice to members
Tomorrow Wanda SLSC will release a statement about the Tradies 2020 Sutherland 2 Surf. The S2S Committee and the Board of Management have been keeping up-to-date with the COVID-19 Pandemic and concurrently building event scenarios as Government restrictions on gatherings were released. Scenarios have included – stage, delay or cancel the event.
With the information available, and in consultation with sponsors and stakeholders, it has sadly been decided that staging the 2020 S2S is not a viable option and the event will be cancelled.
As a Wanda member you know the importance of this event and the role it plays funding our lifesaving operations. With the loss of this income we will need to pull together as a club and seek out other avenues of fundraising. I know you will support the Committee and the Board of Management in taking this decision, and when the time comes I encourage you to get behind the Club’s alternate fundraising efforts with the same energy that you would have for the Sutherland 2 Surf.
As always, please feel free to contact me through the Wanda office should you wish to discuss the S2S, or if you have any feedback on alternate funding opportunities for Wanda.

25/03/20 – Message from Wanda SLSC BOD
Dear Wanda members,
A meeting was held between Sydney Branch Presidents last night. It was agreed that, as a result of Health Authority and Government restrictions Patrols will be stood down for the remainder of the season. This was unanimously supported by all Districts; Waverly, Randwick, Bate Bay, Royal National Park.
Further to this and as an extension of the closure of the Gymnasium, the Wanda Board of Directors have taken the decision to also close access to Wanda clubhouse until further notice – this will take effect from Midnight tonight 25th March 2020. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and we have been pragmatic in staging our shut down to be aligned with SLSA, Health Authority and Government advice.
Members are advised that equipment can be picked up from the club until 8pm tonight 25th March 2020. We ask that members practice all social distancing advice. Should you not be able to collect any equipment that you need other arrangements can be made by contacting the office – 9523 4343 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are in extraordinary times and these restrictions are being implemented to ensure the ongoing health and safety of our members. The Executive are meeting daily and working with the Board of Directors to ensure we continue to do what is right for Wanda and to protect our members.
If you need assistance or would like to discuss the current changes please contact the office through email or contact one of our Board members.
Please be assured that we are closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation and we will continue to keep communication open with progress.
We hope that you are safe and doing well at this tough time. Take care.
Wanda Office contact details: Phone 9523 4343, please leave a message and we will respond as soon as we are able or email – Sharon or Annabelle.
