What’s on expo for area’s youth

A diverse range of clubs and activities, aimed specifically at young people aged 16 years and under, will be on show at Warkworth’s first Junior Group and Clubs Day Expo at the old Masonic Hall on Saturday, September 23.

The event is being organised by the Warkworth Library. Librarian Katie Mitchell says the library gets a lot of enquiries from parents interested in knowing what is available locally for their children.

She says the expo will be both a way of promoting local groups, but also identifying where there might be gaps.

“If someone can’t find what they are looking for, then we might be able to facilitate setting something up or linking some groups together,” she says.

“We will have 14 tables available inside the hall and space for further stallholders outside, although they will need to supply their own tables and gazebos.”

The library, which already runs weekly Lego and chess afternoons for juniors, is inviting sports clubs, scouting and guiding organisations, music and art groups to participate.

Katie says if anyone runs a club specifically for young people, but hasn’t received an invitation, then they are still very welcome to participate and can contact her on the email below or visit the library.

The expo will be run from 10am to 2pm, and the Lions have been invited to put on a sausage sizzle.
