With four new dining venues serving up innovative and fresh cuisine, together with the stunning main bar and sun-drenched alfresco areas offering views of the iconic Northern Beaches coastline – the new Diggers is set to amaze you, whilst still growing and evolving.

Not to mention, the fruition of Stage 2 of our development with aquatic, fitness and seniors living apartments leaping forward towards completion, with a mid2019 commencement expected.

THE HARBORD HEART

FRESHWATER BOARDRIDERS INC Harbord Diggers recently reignited its affiliation with grass-roots surfing at the iconic Freshwater Beach, by coming on board as major sponsor of Freshwater Boardriders Inc (FBI). This new partnership with FBI, provides the club a three year commitment of support to assist and nurture the club to become a competitive and thriving force in Australia.

T HE DIFFERENCE

WE MAKE 6

OUR LIFE – HARBORD DIGGERS

With over 40 registered kids in the micro grom divisions and suitable pathways into the senior club, not only are the youth set to prosper with our support, but so too are all members.


“To have Harbord Diggers join as a major sponsor for FBI is a game-changing opportunity, giving local kids an opportunity to grow their skills. Thanks to the Diggers, we will have a tech-leading scoring system and infrastructure to help FBI become a force in 2019. Freshwater has such a proud surfing history since the Duke surfed on our shores in 1915, and local partnerships like this one with the Harbord Diggers are what keep it alive for future generations.” Lucas Townsend – FBI Manager With scoring upgrades, coaching clinics and an encouraging atmosphere, FBI is on its way to becoming a leading surfing nursery for future champs. The energetic enthusiasm and direction, courtesy of new managers Lucas Townsend and Matt Hatton, is already providing fantastic gains for the local board riders.

AUSTRALIA’S MOST RECOGNISED AQUATIC EXPERTS We’ve been teaching kids to swim well since 1955. Whether you have a tentative swimmer or a tenacious competitor, Carlile Swimming has got it covered. Our team of highly qualified experts understand kids, our pools are designed for kids and we are underpinned by a long history of excellence in aquatic education. Since our beginnings in the rockpool at Palm Beach, we have taught many thousands of Australian children to swim well, from babies to Olympic champions. It all started with our founders, Forbes and Ursula Carlile, legendary sports scientists and Olympic coaches. They paved the way for modern swimming – coaching champions (inventing the pace clock along the way) and opening their first swim school catering to everyone in 1955. We’ve since continued to perfect our award winning teaching program, delivering quality and consistency in every lesson, and helping thousands of babies and kids to be safer around water.

TO SWIM WELL IS AN ASSET FOR LIFE FORBES CARLILE Be first in the know – register your details at www.carlileswimming/freshwater and we’ll let you know when bookings open.
