Youth to make waves at Mullum

Mullumbimby Pool will be the venue on Saturday for Make Waves, a Byron Council Youth Week event organised by the youth of the shire.
The council’s youth development officer, Rita Youssef-Price, said a group of young people had been working non-stop to make the event a fun night.
Young people aged between 12 and 18 years are invited to come along, enjoy the free food, entertainment and have a say about how the Byron Shire can be made even more youth-friendly.
“Transport is often the main obstacle for young people to attend an event, so we have organised free BATBUS transport. The bus will leave from Billinudgel and Suffolk Park at 5.30pm, making their way through to the Mullumbimby pool,” Rita said.
The buses will leave the pool at 10pm and return people to the various pick-up points.
“We’re expecting a good crowd. With a limit of only 200 places, young people will need to be on time. Entry is on a first in basis,” she said.
Inquiries: Rita on 6685 9342.
