It's Youth Week!

Part of this years celebrations is Council’s Face Future, Future Face project.

Run by YP Space Mid North Coast in collaboration with various community agencies and businesses, there will be stalls, games, karaoke, a BBQ and more. All community members are encouraged to attend.

Taking place at Verge Street Oval on Thursday 6 April from 10am, there will also be music, prizes, a career expo, and a health focus.
