Introduction

 

I have received correspondence from the Member for Kingsford Smith, The Hon Matt Thistlethwaite MP, requesting that Council consider renaming a park after the late Barry Rodgers.

 

Issues

 

Mr Rodgers died earlier this month at the age of 74 and was a veteran of the Surf Life Saving movement, having joined the Maroubra Surf Club in 1954. Mr Rodgers won the national Ironman title for three consecutive years from 1966 to 1969 as well as six national titles and eleven NSW Life Savings Titles.

 

His achievements have been recognised through numerous halls of fame, including Randwick City Councilís Surfing Walk of Fame at Maroubra Beach where he was inducted in 2006. Mr Rodgers was well known in the community and gave back through the surf life saving movement in many ways and I think it fitting that Council recognises his achievements through a permanent tribute.

 

Financial impact statement

 

There is no direct financial impact for this matter.

 

Conclusion

 

Barry Rodgers was a dedicated surf life saver, volunteer and community member and it is entirely appropriate to provide a permanent tribute to this great man in his local area of Maroubra.

 

Recommendation

 

That Council staff investigate opportunities for a permanent tribute to Barry Rodgers, including at Mahon Pool and reserves around Maroubra Surf Life Saving Club, and bring back a report to Council for consideration.

Folder No:†††††††††††††† F2016/00096

Author:††††††††††††††††††† The† Mayor, Cr Noel D'Souza †††††

 

Introduction

 

Correspondence has been received from Superintendent Gavin Dengate, Commander State Planning Unit of NSW Police, proposing a beach soccer day at the northern end of Coogee Beach on Sunday, 25 September 2016. This is an opportunity for Police to engage with international students and promote student safety messages.

 

Issues

 

NSW is considered the top destination with International students with over 195,000 students attending educational institutions in 2015, equating to nearly 40% of all student enrolment Australia-wide and worth over $5billion for the NSW economy. The purpose of the day is to engage with international students who are living, working and studying in Randwick City and beyond. This event was held last year and Superintendent Dengate has advised that this event went a long way to establishing stronger and more united relationships. Some low key entertainment and food stalls will be provided.

 

The International Beach Soccer tournament attracts hundreds of international students for the purpose of competing alongside NSW police and each other in a beach soccer tournament. The day also provides an opportunity for other community engagement avenues for police and relevant community stakeholders, including Randwick City Council, in the Coogee reserve area.

 

The top three priorities are to engender trust between International students and Police through the breaking down of barriers, educate Police with regard to the difficulties and vulnerabilities International Students face and improve networking between Police, educational institutions, the community and government stakeholders.

 

The Police are requesting support towards staging the event and other necessary infrastructure requirements.

 

The following support has been requested:

Financial impact statement

 

The amount of $2,500.00 contribution and $2,033.00 in-kind is required to partner this event. If the report recommendation is adopted, this amount will be funded from the 2016-17 Contingency Fund.

 

Conclusion

 

This partnership is yet another best practice example of the local Police and Randwick Council working together in partnership, demonstrating mutual commitment towards a safer community.

 

Recommendation

 

That:

 

a)†††† Council supports the 2016 NSW Police Force International Student Beach Soccer Day at Coogee Beach; and

 

b)†††† Council assists with funding the event by providing $2,500.00 in contributions and $2,033.00 in-kind sponsorship ($4,533.00) to be funded from the 2016-17 Contingency Fund.

Mayoral Minute No. MM20/16

 

Subject:††††††††††††††††† Surfing NSW - Request for Financial Assistance for Beach Breaks Carnival & Australian Surfing Walk of Fame

Folder No:†††††††††††††† F2016/00046

Author:††††††††††††††††††† The† Mayor, Cr Noel D'Souza †††††

 

Introduction

 

Mr Mark Windon, Chief Executive Officer of Surfing NSW, has written to Council seeking funding contribution towards the annual NSW Junior Surfing Title Contest event that is run by Surfing NSW in conjunction with Councilís Beach Breaks Carnival and Surfing Walk of Fame induction. The Carnival is planned to run from the 22 to 24 July 2016.

 

Issues

 

Each year Surfing NSW coordinates a Surfing Contest to be held in July on the same dates as Councilís Beach Breaks Carnival and Surfing Walk of Fame induction. The Surfing NSW proposal indicates that holding these events together gives prestige to the Beach Breaks event, promotes Maroubra as a surfing beach and generates visitation and hospitality spend in Randwick City with over an estimated quarter of a million dollars of additional economic dollars invested into the area.

 

Holding these events together also capitalises on audience, with over 100 families competing in the Surfing contest who automatically take part in the Beach Breaks Event. This is the fourth year for this event and Council has assisted Surfing NSW with similar assistance in previous years. The request includes both cash sponsorship and in-kind support from Council to hold this event.

 

In 2016, Surfing NSW is coordinating a National Junior Surfing Title event to be held at Maroubra Beach from 22-24 July 2016. The event aims to bring increased patronage to the area, to showcase Maroubra Beach as a world class surfing beach and promote the area as a tourist destination. Over 100 junior competitors, their families, staff, officials, event sponsors and media will attend each day over the three days of the competition. Surfing NSW is seeking a funding contribution to assist with holding this event at Maroubra. †The 2015 NSW Junior Titles will coincide with Councilís Beach Breaks event and Surfing Walk of Fame induction.

 

The Beach Breaks Carnival will once again offer a range of food and market stalls, free surfing lessons, live music and carnival rides. Local businesses will be offered the first opportunity to take a stall at the event. The Beach Breaks Carnival will incorporate a range of market stalls selling clothing, towels, homewares, photos, artworks, surfing and beach related items, as well as food and drinks.† In addition to the market stalls, a number of amusement rides, family entertainment and free activities will be offered at the Carnival.

 

This yearís Maroubra Surfing Walk of Fame and Beach Breaks Carnival event will be held on Sunday, 24 July 2016. This report provides an overview of the Surfing Walk of Fame and Beach Breaks Carnival and the activities proposed to be held on the day. Maroubra Beach will be promoted as a family friendly destination for local residents and visitors to the area over the weekend.

 

 

Financial impact statement

 

††††††† Cash Sponsorship†††††††††††††††††††††† $7,500.00

††††††† Hire Application Fee††††††††††††††††††††† $170.00

††††††† Beach Hire†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† $1,557.00

††††††† Additional Lifeguard†††††††††††††††††† $3,764.00

††††††† Use of Jet Ski†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† $1,680.00

††††††† Total Council Contribution†††††††† $14,671.00

 

Funds have been specifically set aside for this event in this yearís budget. Surfing NSW advises that the cash component will contribute towards payment of T-shirts, trophies, stage hire, PA hire and promotion of the event.

 

Conclusion

 

It is considered that the three day NSW Junior State Surfing titles is a great National surfing contest which will benefit the local area as well as tie in with Councilís Beach Breaks event and Surfing Walk of Fame. It is also a unique event for the community to witness and will have ongoing benefit to promote Maroubra as a tourist destination, thus benefiting the Randwick City business community.

 

Recommendation

 

That:

 

a)†††† Council approves $7,500.00 cash sponsorship and $7,171.00 in-kind support to Surfing NSW for the production of the 2016 Junior State Surfing Title scheduled for 22-24 July, 2016 at Maroubra Beach with funds to be sourced from the dedicated Events budget;

 

b)†††† Surfing NSW be requested to appropriately and prominently acknowledge and promote Councilís contribution to the production of the NSW Surfing Titles; and

 

c)†††† the Mayor or his representative be given the opportunity to present the winners of the Junior Titles Surfing Contest with their trophies on behalf of Council.
