On the 9 August (Week 4 Term 3) the Tuggeranong Community Council’s Youth Engagement Committee held a forum to find out from the youth of Tuggeranong what they think, what they would like to find out, and have done about a series of topics relating to Tuggeranong. The outcomes from this forum will be discussed later in the meeting by one of the Youth Engagement Committee members. I would like to give special thanks to Beverley who organised and prepared the food for the event. I would also like to acknowledge the support of Communities@Work and YWCA Canberra who played a significant role in supporting the event. Communities@Work (helped plan the forum and provided the facilities and a Community Development Officer to facilitate it) and the YWCA Canberra (attended Youth Engagement meetings, helped plan the event and provided people to facilitate some of the tables).

The TCC with the support of the Hyperdome has launched a petition to support our recent letter about re routing the buses from Anketell Street. I have copies tonight for hopefully all of you to sign but it is now on line
