Raising of the Flags Ceremony

September 29 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

Free

2018 marks an important milestone in the history of Surf Lifesaving in the Hunter, having been formed in 1918, the 2018 season will mark the 100th year of the Red and Yellow flags being raised on the beaches of the Hunter.

Nobbys SLSC is honored to be hosting the 2018 ceremony.

The Hunter Branch is among the oldest continually operating branches in Australia and this achievement is worthy of recognition and celebration.
Nobbys SLSC would like to invite all 13 Hunter Branch Club Members to wholeheartedly participate in the ‘Raising of the Flags’ ceremony to recognise our past and celebrate our future. The Hunter Branch are also inviting Life Member’s from across all 13 Clubs to participate in this event.
Additionally, all available surf craft from across the branch are invited to be “at sea”off Nobbys for the Raising of the Flags in a display of unity while the formalities occur on the beach.

Floral tributes will be placed on the ocean to recognise those surf lifesavers who have gone before us and invite members to hand floral tributes to those taking craft to sea to lay on their behalf.

We will conclude by laying a large floral tribute in memory of those, who as surf lifesavers, served their country over the past 100 years as 2018 is also the centenary of the armistice marking the cessation of hostilities in WW1. The soldiers who returned from World War 1 were pivotal in the formative years of our branch and individual clubs.
The Last Post will be sounded on the water’s edge.

See you all on the beach
