The sixth Muchea Youth Festival was held, last Saturday (19 March) at Sandown Park.  Those locals who decided not to brave the elements missed out on an amazing afternoon of fun and an evening of live entertainment.

The annual Obstacle Challenge was run and won by “Gobble Guts” for the juniors and “Broncos” for the seniors.  One of the Joondalup Police Academy teams came second and, very kindly, donated their prize money to the Chittering Scouts.

Local muso’s Lachie King, Madi Henry and Ezer Eve warmed the crowd before Perth singer/songwriter Johanna Grace, with her fellow WAAPA student backing band, took to the stage.  To round off the evening Wheatbelt local, Chelsea Basham, shared some original compositions before enjoying her Bindoon Bakehaus birthday treat, smuggled down to the event by Shire staff.

The Shire would like to acknowledge that without the ongoing financial support of Lotterywest and the Road Safety Commission, along with the passionate involvement of the Chittering Youth Krew, it would be impossible to offer this annual event to the community.  Thanks also go to Shane Kay, Peter Haydon, the Joondalup Police Academy, Chittering Scouts, Chittering Broncos, South Midlands Polocrosse Club, Muchea Volunteer Fire Brigade and the Wongan Hills Youth Group for their assistance.

Adam Taylor (Ace Electrical) and Noel Russell (N&M Plumbing & Gas) deserve a special mention for their ongoing support of local events.  These two local businessmen attend the Youth Festival, Wear Ya Wellies and Taste of Chittering from sun-up to sun-down, helping out with both professional services and any other task that needs attention.

What’s on next?  Free April School Holiday Fun  Chittering Art Society Workshop, Bindoon Men’s Shed Open Day and BEAT’s Under-Age Dance Party.  Registrations are required for all activities, contact Lisa for more information.
