The Heron sponsorship of the Red Beach Surf Club began 38 years ago 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.
