The Holiday Programme for the Youth Centre was a great success. The Youth Centre was open every weekday from 12pm - 4pm for the young people. Activities that ran included Movie days, Master chef challenges, Art and Craft, Dance classes and 2 touch soccer. All activities were free of charge. There also was a planned excursion to Laser Tag in Gosford, which had 19 young people attend and all that came had a great fun filled time.
