Sunset Beach Lifeguards travelled to Wellington on the weekend to the NZ Surf Lifesaving Awards of Excellence.

Stuart Keven was awarded has 50 year badge, proud moment for Sunset, big thank you to Stuart for putting in all those years of service to our community, surf patrols and surf boats. "In it for Life" is the surf lifesaving motto and Stuart has certainly achieved that.

Janine Ibbs (32 years service) joining the club in 1973 and Glennys Smith (35 years service) who joined the club in 1979 were awarded NZ Surf Lifesaving Service Awards.

Malcolm Beattie was in the running for Volunteer of the Year. He certainly had all our votes but not to be on the night... it's tough out there so many well deserving candidates! Great night.. and all well deserved.
