NINE members of the 2018 Cumberland Youth Week planning group were thanked at a special presentation event in the Cumberland Council Chambers last Monday night.
Recognising the group for their efforts in organising Youth Week events for more than 250 of their peers earlier in the year, Mayor Greg Cummings said he was proud to see young residents getting involved in their community and wanting to make a difference in Cumberland.
"Our young people are our future and I hope others are inspired by the hard work of this group to also get involved," he said.
"The planning group members gave up their time and worked around their own study, career and social commitments to deliver events that received overwhelming positive feedback. Young people make up around 20 per cent of our Cumberland community."
