Written by Ballina Shire Advocate - 3rd February, 2011   

From L to R: Larry Platt, Bryan Lindon & Lou WilsonThree members of the Lennox Head-Alstonville SLSC recently were award the National Medal in recognition of their long service to local surf lifesaving. Larry Platt, Lou Wilson and Bryan Lindon were all awarded the gong.


The National Medal was established in Australia in 1975 to recognise those who commit many years of their lives to organisations that protect life, at some risk to their own safety. To be eligible the recipients need to demonstrate a minimum of 15 year's service with at least 30 hours each year of active patrolling. Larry, Lou and Bryan all exceed this minimum requirement.The National Medal is a very prestigious award recognising commitment, sacrifice and risk.


Wayne Jones, President of the Surf Club, said, 'the Club was very fortunate to have members with the experience, skill and commitment that Larry, Lou and Bryan bring'. The awarding of the National Medal 'was just recognition of the years of volunteer service these three have given to surf lifesaving' and Wayne was hoping that all three continued to offer their time, experience and skill to Lennox Head club for many years to come.
