A SAD DAY FOR NIMBIN YOUTH

29 December 1999

Member for Lismore, Thomas George, has expressed concern for the youth in Nimbin following information that the Rural Youth Information Service, who operates Youth Worx, has been given notice to vacate its premises.

The Service was told the reason behind the eviction was it was not being used or effective in its work.

"This comes as a shock to me because on the four occasions that I have visited the Youth Worx Centre, I have experienced first hand the amount of support and participation by the young people of Nimbin and district who appreciate the facility," Mr George said.

"I am committed to finding other premises to enable the continuation of the work and support that the Youth Worx Centre offers the youth of our area," Mr George concluded.
