Valley youth embrace their week



YOUTH WEEK kicked off around the Clarence Valley last Saturday but it's this weekend the youth will be looking forward to.

Earlier this week members of YAHWHO, the Youth of Angourie and Wooloweyah Hang Out, put the finishing touches to the arrangements for Saturday's Youth Week Pool Party.

The pool party will feature bands, DJs and skate demonstrations at the Yamba pool on Angourie Road, but is only one of a host of events planned to celebrate the week in the Lower Clarence.

At the other end of the Clarence Valley, a similar event will be held at McKittrick Park in South Grafton.

Each event has been co-ordinated by the Clarence Valley Council but this year council staff have included youth representatives from various schools in the decision making processes to ensure each party has what the young people of the Valley want to see and do.

Keeping skating in the picture, a 'Yambrose' golf day has been organised for Sunday to raise money for Yamba's planned skate park.

Registrations will need to be in by 9am for a 10am start in a day organised for kids and their parents to battle it out on the course during a fun day that will help to bring the halfpipe to Yamba.
