Chittering youth were lucky last week (Friday 3 October) to have the opportunity to be part of a free scooter workshop with an Australian icon, Billy Watts.  Nearly 80 people attended the Shire’s October school holiday event, with approximately two-thirds being local youth.

Billy, who represents Australia in this extreme sport, was assisted by Jared Colwell in teaching participants about staying safe whilst having fun.  This included scooter maintenance, basic balance and scooter tricks.  Billy showed a natural teaching gift, he is clearly passionate about his sport and enjoyed handing out the prizes he brought with him.  Angus McDonald was the lucky recipient of a new scooter.

Other activities that were enjoyed on the day were zorb ball ‘bubble’ soccer, tumbling, face painting by Alison Moore and a sausage sizzle ‘n’ drinks.

Facebook check-ins on the day included; Angelique – “thank you for a wonderful day today, it’s great to see a Shire that really cares about their community”, Donna – “fun down the park today thanks to Chittering Shire, such a great day!” and Joyce – “having fun at Clune Park, Bindoon, thanks Chittering Shire for organising it, the kids are loving it”.

A big thank you to;

  • Bindoon Community Progress Association and the Bindoon Dirt Drags for organising the BBQ and sponsoring the event.
  • Bindoon Fresh Meats (Craig, Rita and Rhys) for supplying wonderful sausages and lending their new BBQ.
  • Chittering Youth Krew members (Courtney, Maggie, Mitch, Clyde and Oli) for helping out on the day.
