Push for Clarence Valley PCYC
THE call for a Clarence Valley Police Citizen’s Youth Club has been made by the inaugural Youth Services meeting held on Wednesday night at the South Grafton Ex-Servicemen’s Club.
Meeting convenor Ursula Tunks will be at Grafton Shoppingworld today from 10am to 1pm gathering signatures on petitions and letters to garner public support for the idea.
Ms Tunks said Grafton police Chief Inspector Jason Breton would include signed letters of support in a submission to PCYC ”decision-makers” at the end of June, and copies of the petition would be sent to the NSW Legislative Assembly via Steve Cansdell.
“We had an amazing meeting with 40 people attending,” Ms Tunks said.
“The meeting successfully identified a steering committee of 12 – all amazing, experienced and qualified people from a range of backgrounds.”
Ms Tunks said the steering committee would utilise the youth component of a recently released social plan developed by Clarence Valley Council.
The steering committee, she said, would meet again before the end of June to articulate its mission. The group’s Facebook site, People for a Comprehensive Youth Service and PCYCs for the Clarence Valley, has 310 members.
