The long awaited new Muriwai surf club and community centre is now open. A $5 million facility, TTCF’s contribution of $1.04 million made it the single largest funder. Comprising 1930 square metres, with a hall to seat up to 300 with overflow onto the decks, the facility is now home to a fishing club, playgroup, arts trail, the environmental action trust and a film group.
The Muriwai Volunteer Lifeguard Service has a state-of-the-art operations base and emergency medical station, improved storage for lifesaving equipment, vehicles and rescue boats and a workshop. A club lounge, bunkroom accommodation and kitchen facilities is available for surf club members, visiting school and community groups. There is also a classroom complete with audio visual equipment.
