huntforthewilderpeopleMovie nights are starting up on the first Friday of the month at the South Golden Beach Community Centre from this Friday August 4, 5–7pm.

‘There has been a lot of talk that there’s nothing for young people to do,’ said organiser Lotte Boer from the South Golden Beach Community Centre (SGBCC). ‘We are looking for young people in the community to take on this project and drive it. We thought we would start it with a movie night but the young people could take it in a different direction.’

‘We want enthusiastic young people to drive this; they have so much to offer,’ said Lotte.

The first movie will be the New Zealand comedy Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Entry by donation.

Byron Youth Service is  supporting the SGBCC in organising the event, promotion and transport.

If you’re not sure how to get there and home again call Karim at the Byron Youth Service on 0490 669 938 and he’ll help sort you out.
