Youth set for hot house gig



HOT house parties have returned to the Clarence Valley in a bid to entertain young people.

Clarence Valley Council Community Development Officer, youth services, Carolyn Wilkes said a hot house party at Yamba on Wednesday night would be the first in the Valley for two years.

"It is happening as a result of requests from local youth," Ms Wilkes said.

She said the aim was to have it during Youth Week but no suitable dates were available.

"The party is strictly alcohol-free, with all breathalysed on entry," Ms Wilkes said.

She said a courtesy bus would be available to party-goers after the event to take them home.

"Previous events have been marred by poor behaviour of those outside the event," Ms Wilkes said.

"However, extra security have been made available and local police will be assisting."

Ms Wilkes said there was a need for more youth events.

"Young people have been asking for more entertainment for under-18s ? now's their chance to help support this event and make sure it is a success," she said.

"My role was lobbying John Logan and the golf club on behalf of young people to give HHP another try."

The hot house party will be held at the Yamba Golf and Country Club. Tickets are $9 pre-sale and $10 on the day (not at the door).
