GEORGE JOINS LAURIE LAWRENCE IN ADVOCATING WATER SAFETY

18 January 2010

The National’s Member for Lismore, Thomas George has joined with Laurie Lawrence of Kids Alive “Do the Five” to promote water safety.

“The holiday season is a time when people from all over the region and even the world, may come to our region to visit and enjoy the delights of our beautiful beaches and rivers.

“We are fortunate to have fabulous beaches, rivers and waterways that provide a wonderful environment for the gathering and leisure of family and friends.

“Sadly since 2000, over 300 children under five have drowned in Australia. I don’t want to see these devastating statistics climb any further!

Laurie Lawrence has just finished a comprehensive FREE water safety DVD, this resource is for parents and caregivers of children under 5 years of age.

“I am pleased to offer my support and make these DVD’s available from my office.

“Copies of the DVD are available from my Lismore electorate office at 55 Carrington Street Lismore or contact 6621 3624,” said Mr George.
