Wins for local surf club

Brett Gould was named winner of the young achiever of the year award while Mark Hills took out assessor of the year.

It was a record-breaking 2014-15 season for SLSWA, with volunteers setting a combined patrol record of more than 106,000 hours and another year of record club membership of 20,162.

Volunteers performed 625 rescues, administered 2252 first-aid treatments and performed 19,992 preventative actions � an increase of more than 50 per cent over the previous season.

Hills will go on to represent WA at the Surf Life Saving Australia awards of excellence later in the year.
