Helpers needed to get groove going
WHETHER it's busting out moves on the dance floor or bending backwards for the limbo, hundreds of children look forward to the Blue Light disco each month.
Up to 200 Warwick youths, aged six-16, visit Slade Hall each month for a night under the disco ball – but with such a large number of visitors, the committee need a few extra set of hands to help run the evening.
Constables Kirstyn Lister and Fiona Scott help run the event each month and say more bodies to help organise the nights would be much appreciated.
“The nights run from 6pm-9pm and we are just after anyone who might want to help during that period,” Cnst Lister said.
“It's a great way to help the community and would give volunteers an opportunity to assist us for what is a very worthy cause.”
Cnst Scott said the number of children attending was on the rise, giving organisers even more bodies to watch over.
“Having the Blue Light discos provide a good form of wholesome entertainment for our youth,” Cnst Scott said.
“It also improves the relationships between the youth and police officers.
“The kids always enjoy themselves; they seem to rave about it.”
The Blue Light committee received a financial boost last week, after a cheque for $1400 was donated from the Condamine Sports Club.
Blue Light treasurer Peter Hardwick said the money would cover the costs of hiring the hall.
Anyone who is interested in joining the Blue Light committee or help out at the next disco is asked to contact Cnst Fiona Scott or Cnst Kirstyn Lister on 46604444.
The next Blue Light disco is on Friday July 15 at Slade Hall from 6pm.
Parents who would like to stay on are invited to do so and entry for each child is $5.
