Lithgow Youth Council participated in a very successful Bowenfels Family Fun Day on Wednesday 12 April, organised by Lithgow Information and Neighbourhood Centre, and proudly supported by the Lithgow Cares Committee, Lithgow City Council and a wide variety of local organisations.

Bowenfels Family Fun Day is an annual free family event for all in our community, to connect with local service providers and to enjoy music, reptile petting zoo, hoola hooping, jumping castles, craft, games and more!

Youth Council’s presence was very well received, with the “YOUTH JAM SPACE” sponsored by The Seven Valleys Lithgow Live and Local, bringing Christian Broome’s music to stage.

Emily Brown held an information and craft table while Ollyvar Baker made use of his PR skills to promote Youth Council’s next projects. The event aimed to recreate what young people enjoy doing when they get together: talk to friends, play music, make crafts and create together.

Lithgow’s Youth Council members enjoyed the experience and want to thank Lithgow Information and Neighbourhood Centre for giving them the opportunity to be part of a beautiful day gathering with the community.
