“The all age Disco held in Werris Creek on Friday was Council’s opening event for Youth Week. I’d like to thank the Werris Creek Bowling and Tennis Club’s community spirit in donating the venue. On Sunday, the Youth Fun Day at Quirindi’s Rose Lee Park provided a variety of things to do and enjoy, “ he continued.

“Council’s libraries and Rec Centre are also holding school holiday events that will further compliment the Youth Weeks ones.
“The message for Youth Week 2017 is get involved, be heard and make a difference and I encourage the Shire’s youth to do exactly that and show the community what you have to offer. In a few years time you will be our community leaders so get involved now and make that difference,” Councillor Hope concluded.
