Next week, an event organised for young people in Broken Hill is expected to be a big hit and attract a large crowd.
The Summer Fun day out on January 28 will offer local youth the opportunity to relax, enjoy and have fun with friends.
Facilitated by the Broken Hill City Council in collaboration with several partners, the event will cater to the target audience’s interests.
Community Development Officer, Dionne Devlin, said organisers want to see as many young people attend the event at the Regional Aquatic Centre.
“This event includes the activities that young people have asked for,” she said.
“It provides an opportunity for this age group to get together and spend time together listening to live music and taking advantage of the atmosphere and activities.
“Council and its partners are looking forward to warm weather to encourage a large group of young people to come along.”
Young people (12-24 years) can enter for free from 4pm and receive a canteen voucher before they enjoy the atmosphere in the area after a swim.
Local band Clouded will perform live music from 5pm, with arts and library activities also scheduled and will be topped off by an outdoor movie from 8pm.
Mrs Devlin said teaming up with local organisations such as YMCA, headspace and Joblink Plus plays a key role in implementing these types of initiatives.
“Partnerships are pivotal to success, and we are fortunate to have local agencies available to partner in for events such as Summer Fun,” she said.
“Council encourages partners in all youth events to ensure that the city provides coordination, information, support and fun activities for young people to be involved in using the resources of a variety of partners.”
Funding for the Summer Fun event was provided by the Office for Regional Youth Holiday Break program and the NSW Government.
