Puttin’ On the Ritz – Newport Surf Club Members Celebrate 110 Years in Style

It was a great turnout with over 190 guests showing up to celebrate 110 years of our surf club. For over a century Newport Surf Club has witnessed two World Wars, one Great Depression and the dedication of countless members to the community.

The surf club looked great like the ageless lady that she is.

Dressed in their finest, guests celebrated whilst listening to the smooth sounds of the Lachy Hamilton Trio and enjoying a glass of wine supplied by Molly’s Cradle. Several thumbs up were given to local caterer Seasoned Events for the fantastic spread.

Thanks to Iain Taylor for hosting and launching our new book

Look out for “Our Second Century”, a beautiful coffee table book that is an archive of historical details on Newport Surf Club and the community. Now available for $30 at the Nippers Shop on Sunday mornings.
