Call­ing all Goul­burn Val­ley women to en­joy a Night In

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS - By Liz Mellino

GIRLS of the Goul­burn Val­ley can en­joy an evening of pam­per­ing and fun ac­tiv­i­ties at the an­nual Girls’ Night In this week­end.

Run by Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil’s Word and Mouth and the Eth­nic Coun­cil, the evening aims to bring fe­males above the age of 12 to­gether to bridge the gap be­tween cul­tures and back­grounds.

Held on Satur­day from 6pm at the Mac­in­tosh Cen­tre at Shep­par­ton Showgrounds, the night will host a range of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing henna paint­ing, braid­ing and danc­ing as well as en­ter­tain­ment by a DJ.

‘‘The event is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for girls and young women of Greater Shep­par­ton to come and learn more about each other, as well as hav­ing some fun, all for free,’’ Word and Mouth project man­ager Jim Gow said.

‘‘We con­tinue to en­gage young peo­ple by putting on a va­ri­ety of events . . . too of­ten we hear that there is noth­ing to do in the area for our youth and we are con­stantly look­ing to change that.’’

Mr Gow said the event was a col­lab­o­ra­tive re­sult of the WAM Army, a youth com­mit­tee ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for re­gional youth.

‘‘This event is about bridg­ing Girly fun: the cul­tural gaps and build­ing bet­ter so­cial co­he­sion for our com­mu­nity, re­gard­less of age,’’ he said. ■ Girls’ Night In runs from 6pm to 10pm. All Word and Mouth events are fully su­per­vised, and are drug, smoke and al­co­hol-free events. This is a women/ girls only event. For in­for­ma­tion, phone Jim Gow on 0437 771 114.
