    • October 2009 Update
      • 8 Oct 2009
      • Maranui Surf Life Saving Club
      • On Monday 5th October 2009 there was a meeting held between Maranui Surf Life Saving Club and Wellington City Council officers. This meeting was called by the council to discuss a new proposed outcome for the fire damaged Maranui building; as revealed by the Dominion Post on Friday the 2nd October. The concept they put to the Maranui members was to demolish the 4 council buildings on the Lyall Beach and replace them with a purpose built “Super Building” which would incorporate Lyall Bay surf club, Maranui surf club, NZAAT Beach House Art Gallery, toilet and shower facilities etc. Maranui Surf Club members were surprised and disappointed with yet another delay and are unsure how this new concept is relevant to the repair of the Maranui building.

      • Eric Waterson and Simon Trotter raced around the 2×2km run course in 15:19 getting into the water with only a 20 second lead on the next two, one of which was 16 year old Jake Allen. Katherine Alan had put 30 seconds on Marianne Archer in the run to be first female into the water but Marianne has had a big winter training and it looked like Katherine would be hard pressed to hold that lead in her U2.

    • Maranui Surf Life Saving Club and Cafe Update
      • 7 Aug 2009
      • Maranui Surf Life Saving Club
      • With the devastating fire that gutted Maranui Surf Lifesaving Club and Cafe in the early hours of Saturday, some good had to come. First of all, the Maranui family would like to say how blown away we have all been with the extraordinary support the community has shown in what does feel like a wake of sorts. The building itself will all-but certainly be rebuilt, and we will be updating any developments here as soon as they come to light, but it is the irreplaceable things that are the saddest loss.
