Youth take to the field
One hundred young people will take to the field in Putaruru this Saturday at the Youth Day Out.
The event is at Glenshea Park from 9.30am until 3pm.
Y Rangitahi Youth Day Out project manager Jamie McEwan said teams of 10 would compete in touch and dodgeball.
‘‘Anyone from the community can play. It is a youth event – that’s people from 12 to 24 years old,’’ he said. ‘‘It is something we wanted to do for the community. We also wanted to promote the youth centre.’’
Mr McEwan said a relay would be held in the afternoon followed by a movie night at The Plaza. ‘‘For the sports there are spot prizes, including one for overall best team and wackiest dressed.’’
Y Rangitahi is a 10-week programme for youth from Putaruru and involves individual development projects.
