Club History Book

As part of NCSLSC’s centenary celebrations in 2018/19, the Club will produce a 100 year history book.

The publication will incorporate an updated version of the first edition of North Cottesloe’s history, which was published in 2003. It will also enunciate the more recent achievements of the Club and its members, outlining North Cott’s lifesaving, competitive, social, cultural and youth development progress over the past two decades and the way in which it has evolved over a century to become an important part of the Cottesloe community and valuable contributor to the Australian surf lifesaving movement.

An imperative of the book is that it should be very people focused, highlighting the backgrounds and achievements of its members with an obvious emphasis on their achievements at the Club, but also a strong focus on professional and personal non surf club accomplishments.

Given North Cott has a large and eclectic membership of diverse background, there is a wealth of interesting people involved whose achievements make fascinating reading. For example, North Cott boasts some of Western Australia’s most eminent medicos, lawyers, trade and commercial leaders, realtors, retailers, educationalists, manufacturers, builders, media personalities, athletes…

On this basis, the authors are seeking as much anecdotal information relating to members and Club events – anything that will enhance the human interest element of the book.

We appreciate there are some errors, omissions and oversights in the original edition of the Club’s history. If you have any information that can assist in correcting or adding to this content please send it in.

We are particularly keen to gather as many photographs depicting the competitive and social aspects of Club life over the past quarter of a century.  While the Club has some on file, there is likely to be hundreds of privately taken photos that have never been circulated.

We look forward to receiving your stories, experiences, thoughts, photos and memories to be part of what will become a special part of our Club’s history.

Please include detailed captions when submitting photos.
