Second youth festival to be smaller evening event
The first Youth Fest to be held at the Skate Park adjacent to Umina Oval has been described as a success by Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.
It will be repeated on a smaller scale on the evening of Friday, February 23.
Ms Tesch said the Summer Youth Fest was intended to be a large holiday event but organisers wished to get it established as a more targeted regular event.
"Regional Youth Support Services, in association with other service providers, have decided they will move the time to the evening and run a barbecue near the skate park in an effort to engage with the older teenagers and young adults who tend to use the skate park later in the day," Ms Tesch said.
The Rotary Club of Woy Woy, which ran a barbecue at the January 25 event, would continue with regular evening barbecues, Ms Tesch said.
