A controversy has arisen at an Australian surf lifesaving club over a new policy banning nudity in showers and changing rooms. Members are now required to shower in swimwear and change with a towel around them, as indicated by a sign at the club. A regular ocean swimmer who frequents the changing rooms received a warning letter after allegedly breaching the new policy. The club's Child Safe Policy requires that members avoid showering or changing at the same time as groups of children and also recommends that one-to-one situations with young people in changing areas be avoided. Despite her disagreement with the new policy, the woman ultimately resigned from the club due to concerns over child welfare.
