Wanneroo Times - - Wanneroo Link -

Come join in the Youth Week cel­e­bra­tions at the City of Wan­neroo’s Youth Mar­ket and free com­mu­nity event at the Gir­rawheen Hub on Satur­day 21 April. The event has been planned and or­gan­ised by en­thu­si­as­tic young res­i­dents with sup­port from the City’s Youth Ser­vices team. There will be a va­ri­ety of mar­ket stalls, fan­tas­tic en­ter­tain­ment, free ac­tiv­i­ties and de­li­cious re­fresh­ments for all to en­joy. Mar­ket stalls show­cas­ing eye-catch­ing jew­ellery, in­spi­ra­tional art, soy wax can­dles, creative house plants and much more, will be man­aged by young peo­ple aged 13-25 years. Fab­u­lous free ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer in­clude face paint­ing, henna body art, a cud­dly an­i­mal farm, bub­ble sta­tion and cir­cus chal­lenges. En­ter­tain­ment will be pro­vided by tal­ented lo­cal singers and mu­si­cians, while rov­ing ma­gi­cians will daz­zle the crowd with their quick handed tricks. Mayor Tracey Roberts said the event was a way to ac­knowl­edge and cel­e­brate the many con­tri­bu­tions of lo­cal young peo­ple in the com­mu­nity. “The City of Wan­neroo is a young and vi­brant place to live with peo­ple un­der 25 years of age ac­count­ing for 37 per cent of our pop­u­la­tion,” Mayor Roberts said. “It is there­fore vi­tally im­por­tant that we sup­port and en­cour­age our young peo­ple and their en­deav­ours. “The Youth Mar­ket is a fan­tas­tic event show­cas­ing the many tal­ents of our City’s young res­i­dents and I en­cour­age all mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to get in­volved in the cel­e­bra­tions at the Gir­rawheen Hub. “I would also like to ex­tend my thanks to the Depart­ment of Com­mu­ni­ties for their grant of $1,500 which has been used to or­gan­ise the event.”

Youth Week is an an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of the pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tions of young peo­ple to West­ern Aus­tralia, run­ning from 13-22 April.
