Ven­tur­ers get cook­ing

Benalla Ensign - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

The newly re­formed Benalla Ven­turer Unit has hit the ground running.

The group started the week with a visit from the Ven­turer Youth Coun­cil, which was en­joyed by all in at­ten­dance.

Their first of­fi­cial ac­tiv­ity saw the group head into Benalla to take a look at some lo­cal land­marks and learn about the his­tory of the town­ship.

That was fol­lowed by a trip to the lo­cal CFA where young­sters learnt about the ve­hi­cles used to fight fires and how the CFA keep the com­mu­nity safe.

Most re­cently the group hosted a cook­ing night where mem­bers made sausage rolls and mud cake. The ac­tiv­ity in­volved sourc­ing a recipe, buy­ing in­gre­di­ents and bak­ing the food.

The Ven­tur­ers have lots of fun ac­tiv­i­ties planned for Novem­ber in­clud­ing a Hal­loween disco, tak­ing part in the Benalla Fes­ti­val Street Pa­rade, and en­joy­ing ‘‘A day in the gar­dens Mar­ket’’, also part of the fes­ti­val.

If you are in­ter­ested in find­ing out more in­for­ma­tion on the Ven­tur­ers, in­clud­ing how your child can join, phone Jenny on 0428 590 606 or Gemma on 0408 071 308.

Work­ing hard: The Benalla Ven­tur­ers re­cently had the op­por­tu­nity to take part in a cook­ing night.
