Friday packed with fun events for Gunnedah Shire’s youth

April 8, 2022

It will be flat-out Friday for Gunnedah Shire’s youth with a free colour run, outdoor cinema and the PCYC Youth Hub opening.

Join the fun in the colour run today at Longmuir Playing Fields from 4pm then head along to the Gunnedah PCYC for its Youth Hub opening, followed by a free screening of Space Jam: A New Legacy.   

Council’s Cultural Precinct Team Leader Lauren Mackley said it was a great chance for youth to get together in their community.

“The Colours for Nourishment provides an opportunity for Gunnedah young people to participate in an exciting and fun event in the spirit of community,” Ms Mackley said.

“In order for the event to run smoothly, it is essential that all participants sign and submit a waiver at the event. Participants under 17 years of age must submit a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.”

Ms Mackley said the new Youth Hub would also provide a good opportunity for youth to connect and make new friends.

“This space is an activities room, chill-out zone and drop-in centre housed with fitness equipment, comfortable seating, video consoles and free Wi-Fi,” she said.

“This is the combined vision of so many organisations in Gunnedah and will be supported by these organisations to provide a safe and secure space for Gunnedah’s Youth, which will include Friday night programs and activities in the near future.”

After the hub opening, youth can take in the new Space Jam movie and enjoy a free barbecue, popcorn and water. If it rains, the event will be moved inside.

 “This is a real community driven project and shows how collaborative and driven the Gunnedah Shire community is,” Ms Mackley said.

“The organisations that have been instrumental  in the success of this activity, include Joblink Plus, PCYC Gunnedah, Winanga-Li Aboriginal Child and Family Centre, Gunnedah Shire Council, Homes North, Gunnedah Family Support and TFSS.

“The cinema event is a real chance for everyone to connect and engage with services and engage with our young people in a really positive way, so bring a chair, bring some blankets, get comfy, sit back and relax and enjoy this great movie.”
