Brian Wade and Clive Hutchinson.
Omaha Surf Lifesaving Club members were given a Christmas gift when Brian Wade, from Performance Painters Warkworth, picked up the brushes and gave the club buildings a new coat of paint on December 15.
Brian had quoted around $7000 for the work, but when the club couldn’t afford it he got Guthrie Bowron in Warkworth to help with paint, and did the job anyway.
“I’ve been a member of the surf club for over 20 years and I love surfing. I am happy to support them, if they find the money to pay for the job great, if they don’t, well so be it.”
