Cool week for youth

PIONEER Park was no place for the older generation on Saturday as local youths enjoyed the start of Youth Week 2010.

Dancing, fashion parades and art were all part of the festivities for local teenagers.

TV presenter, comedian and author Gretel Killeen was on hand to sign copies of her latest book ‘I love you Zelda Bloo’. Ms Killeen also appeared at a dance party held on Saturday night at the Cavanbah Centre.

The dance party was the place to be seen with many local bands and DJs creating an alcohol-free party atmosphere.

Other Youth Week Activities running this week include:

April 13: Cartoon Workshops. Bunker Gallery. Instruction by Artists Warwick Gilbert, Garry Wait and Jules Faber.

April 10 -18: Skateboard Construction. Building and construction workshop of a half-pipe skateboard ramp for use at the Northern Beaches Youth Centre, Queen Street, Woolgoolga.

April 17 and 18: Free Surf Lessons. Diggers Beach. Learn a new skill as well as surf safety, meet new friends and just have fun.

April 13: Travel Bugs. Live mini-beasts at Coffs Harbour Library, 11am-noon.
