Please be on the lookout for the missing pink buoy at Grotto beach. Sadly, this is not the first time rescue equipment has been stolen.

We request residents to please assist us in finding the missing rescue buoy by keeping their eyes open for anyone who is in possession of this easily identifiable bright pink lifesaving buoy.

Let's keep making our swimming areas a safer place for our children and other beach lovers.

Remember, a stolen Pink Buoy is a stolen life and accidents can happen at any time.
