Youth Council

Join us on Friday 1 December from 3pm-5.30pm at Dudley Park to celebrate the launch of the new Decking Space and Mural that the Waimakariri Youth Council has been working on!

We've got fun for the whole family.  Fun activities, free food and market stalls.  Come on down after school for a great afternoon and end to the week!

The mural and decked area has been funded by the Waimakariri District Council, McAlpine's Mitre 10 Rangiora, Aotearoa Gaming Trust and Creative Communities New Zealand. We'd also like to thank Youthtown for joining us to hold this event!
