There’ll be no dirty washing at the Singleton Young Venue after Council’s application for a $4,000 grant under the State Government’s Community Building Partnership Program was successful.
The Youth Venue on Pitt Street, Singleton will use the money for a shed to house a laundryincluding a washing machine, dryer and sink to expand on life skill programs offered at the centre.
Anthony Egan, Council’s Director Corporate and Community, said the laundry had been on the Youth Venue’s wish list for some time.
“One of the most important features of the Youth Venue is teaching life skills to young people across our local government area and the laundry will be an added dimension to programs that already encompass cooking,” he said.
“The Youth Venue is an important facility for hundreds of young people across Singleton and surrounds not only as a place to visit to hang out, but to learn practical life lessons that they will draw on for all of their adult lives.
“Council is very fortunate to have an enthusiastic team of youth workers with incredible foresight into the needs of our young people through the range of programs they offer at the Youth Venue.”
The laundry will be installed in early 2018.
