Youth centre disco

MOUNT Larcom youth will celebrate the reopening of the Mount Larcom Youth Centre with a DJ and disco this Friday night.

The centre closed in June 2010 due to a lack of volunteers.

The centre boasts a pool table, air hockey, table tennis, Sony PlayStation and Xbox, and arts and crafts facilities.

It will be open every Friday from 5pm until 10pm and Saturday from 10am until 4pm, with extended opening hours during school holidays.

Gladstone Regional Council's community services portfolio spokeswoman Councillor Maxine Brushe said the centre would provide safe, supervised activities for youth while also offering them their own space.

The re-opening celebrations will feature Mount Larcom local DJ Adams, a sausage sizzle, barbecue and face painting. Admission is $1 with all proceeds going to the youth centre.

For more information, or to express an interest in becoming a volunteer, contact Jackie Stratton on 0427792346 or 49751713.
