In the South
Seven southern lifesavers were honoured with service awards at the Surf Life Saving New Zealand Awards of Excellence.
The awards were held at the Amora Hotel in Wellington on Saturday. Surf Life Saving New Zealand chief executive Paul Dalton said club members were awarded points for roles within their clubs and then also at a district and national level.
The points accumulate every year to reach service level and then distinguished service.
Service awards: Scott Crosbie, Oreti, Martin Ford, Kaka Point (South Otago), Daniel Haar, Kaka Point, Danney Mason, Kaka Point, Paul Richardson, Kaka Point, Andrew Budge, Kaka Point, Allistair Carey, Kaka Point.
