Key Partners & Supporters
The Flying Herons
Contacts: Bryan & Pat Heron
M: 027 243 1020
The Heron sponsorship of the Red Beach Surf Club began in 1978 when Bryan Heron, through his company BH Heron Plumbing, presented two rescue training skis to the club’s Nippers.
In the summers that followed, more support was provided by way of sponsored surf skis, boards, double skis and Nipper training boards. Full sponsorship and major support grew from there.
Large donations were made to the clubhouse building projects, ranging from the roof for the new building to additions and alterations in later years.
The very first Heron surf boat was handed over to the club in October 1988, to be followed over a period of time by more surf boats.
Further financial support has come through the funding of travel to surf lifesaving competition, support for travel to the sister club of Collaroy in Sydney and the funding of surf boat sweep training courses.
Bryan and Pat Heron initiated the establishment of the BH Heron Red Beach Lifeguard Development Trust which will support surf lifesaving projects in the years to come.
They are also the proud sponsors of “The Flying Herons” fleet of surf boats.

In addition to common sprains and strains, our Physiotherapists treat spinal conditions causing headaches, back pain and sciatica. Many problems require a muscle balance assessment with specific flexibility and strength exercises in conjunction with postural and ergonomic advice. We have a strong emphasis on teaching patient self-management and enhancing healthy lifestyles.
All our Physiotherapists have post-graduate training in manipulative therapy so are able to manipulate joints, where appropriate, to improve further mobility and functions. Physiotherapists with advanced training in acupuncture and Clinical Pilates, can provide this approach where appropriate too.
