A Cornish surf lifesaving club is bidding for £1.3 million of government funding to create a new environmental centre and club house.
Bude Surf Life Saving Club and Bude Cleaner Seas are working together to try and win the funding and build a new centre to house both groups.
If we get the funding it will be terrific, I've got the best use out of this building it would be great if nippers could look forward to next 50 years. Plaster trouble, cracks, touching up, getting past stage of repair, it would need a vast amount of money.
We need safe beaches for our tourist industries. Clean seas, strong economy, economical growth in coastal communities.
If they're successful this will replace the current building. As well as a new club house it will include an environmental hub, a base for the RNLI at Crooklet's Beach as well as being a new community venue.
