This week our region’s young people are encouraged to get involved, be heard and make a difference as part of Youth Week celebrations. Parkes Shire Council, and the Community Drug Action Team (CDAT), will host a Sunday Session at Parkes Aquatic Centre on Sunday. Entry to the township pools will be free between 2 and 4pm.
For details about other activities for Youth Week, visit parkes.nsw.gov.au. To coincide with the Youth Week celebrations, the Mayor’s fourth annual Swim Relay will be held from 10am to 4pm. Relay teams, consisting of school students and members of community groups and organisations, will take turns swimming laps for six hours. Money raised will be donated to Life Education.
For those wanting to see six of Parkes’ majestic heritage homes, tickets are on sale for the Sunrise to Sunset open house on Sunday, 30th April as part of the Australian Heritage Festival. Buy tickets at eventbrite.com. Upgrade your ticket to gold before 19th April to enjoy morning tea and lunch at the Visitors Information Centre provided by
Parkes Quota International, and to be one of 10 guests treated to a private driver in a vintage car on the day, proudly presented by the Parkes Antique Motor Club.
Enjoy your weekend.
