YANCHEP Surf Life Saving Club was officially opened on Sunday, March 11 by City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts.

The club has had the keys to the new clubhouse since before Christmas so this year have been much closer to oversee swimming, snorkelling and abalone fishing days at Yanchep Lagoon.

Cr Roberts said the population growth in the area would allow the club to accommodate more members.

The Yanchep area is expected to be home to another 100,000 people during the next 10 years.

She said the club now had an opportunity to become a hub for Yanchep and Two Rocks residents – somewhere thay could participate in fitness activities and competitions, develop new skills and undertake training or simply contribute to and enjoy the social aspects of being a club member.

In her opening speech Cr Roberts referred to the delays the city had encountered with the project.

In September 2016 the city was forced to sack the original builder, which had fallen behind in finishing the project.

She also thanked the developers which helped fund the project – Capricorn Village Joint Venture, Fini Group, Frasers Property Australia, LandCorp, Peet, Pindan Capital Two Rocks and Yanchep Beach Joint Venture.
