CENTACARE Evolve Housing (CEH) partnered with Southern City BMX to host a BMX and ‘BBQ Arvo’ at the Gagebrook Skate Park during Youth Week. BMX coaching was provided by Southern City on the bike track and there were activities for all ages provided by the CEH Community Wellbeing team.
A highlight was the Mother’s Day card and a ‘paint your pot and grow your own veggies’ gift station. A spray painting and craft, and free barbecue were highlights of the day. Bridgewater PCYC provided another stand out activity, a Mobile Activity Centre.
More than 200 community members took part in the fun with perfect weather and plenty of music, bean bags to play on all creating a fun family environment.
CEH thanks Communities for Children, CatholicCare and the Red Cross for managing activities and helping create such an energetic and positive vibe.
This year’s Youth Week theme was ‘We’ve Got This’ celebrating young people’s achievements and resilience when facing adversity such as the challenges of 2020.
