Killcare Surf Life Saving Club president Mr Peter Bagnall has stepped down due to new work commitments in Western Australia.
“At the last committee meeting, Pete handed in his resignation as president,” said club information officer Mr Craig Sheppard.
“He’s at pains to point out that he’s not leaving the club or his patrol duties.
“It’s simply that he’s travelling for two weeks out of three and, despite us trying a few things to keep him in the role, he just didn’t feel he could do the position justice.
“It’s hard to overstate what Bags has done for the club over the last few years.
“It’s been a tumultuous time off the beach and he’s guided us into a new era.”
In the interim, Mr Nic Urie has been named acting president with the support of the club’s board.
