Golden Plains Shire Council Mayor Cr Brett Cunningham encourages young people to get involved in the free holiday activities on offer across the Shire throughout the Easter holiday period.
Council’s School Holiday activities are an excellent opportunity for Golden Plains youth to get out and about in the community and connect with other likeminded young people from within the Shire.
With something for everyone, the free activities range from skate sessions and lawn bowls, to employment and pathways training to equip young people with professional skills for the future.
