The Australind Lions Club is planning for another big turnout to its annual Australia Day breakfast after a massive crowd converged on Ridley Place last year.

On from 7am until the food runs out or 10am rolls around, near the boat ramp the event will feature a Welcome to Country by pastor Dennis Jetta and the national anthem by Australind Lions Club member Joanne Foster.

Club president Ann Knapp said about 800 people turned up for last year’s breakfast and the group was planning for the same number this year.

“Last year was our biggest ever, we didn’t run out of food but we were still flat out,” she said.

Continuing the trend of breaking records, Ms Knapp said there would be 15 people receiving their citizenship at the event, a big step up from the average of between eight and nine.
