Annual Awards


Glen Street Theatre, Belrose | Friday, 22 May 2020

Also known as the “Bernies”, this is an event where we celebrate all of our lifesaving and competitive achievements that occurred during the previous season. Tickets will go on sale April, 2020.

What is a Bernie?

In 2019, we started a new tradition at our Annual Awards Celebration. Our major award winners all took home a “Bernie”. The Bernie is a sculpture by local artist, Victoria Norman. Victoria used the lifesavers’ motto “Vigilance & Service” as inspiration during the creation. The sculpture has been given the nick name “Bernie” in honour of our Life Member and club legend Bernie Howard, who retired from patrolling at the end of the 2018-19 season after 25 years!
