THE last Snak ‘N Rap for 2017 was a fantastic success, hosted this time at Mallabula skatepark.
Snak ‘N Rap is a regular, free community event for young people. hosted by the Tilligerry Youth Community Action group (TYCA).
TYCA is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organisation running youth programs in Port Stephens, with the goal of empowering young people to fulfil their potential.
The final event for 2017 had a great turn out, with over forty people in attendance who had a great day shared by all to finish off a big year.
Jamie Brewster from TYCA told News Of The Area, “Snak’N’Rap Tilly was an amazing way to finish off the year.”
“We had a lot of new faces and also regulars who continue to support the Snak’N’Rap program.”
Jack Baker, who attended the Tilly Snak ‘N Rap told News Of The Area, “It was so fun thank you so much to Snak’N’Rap for this event, I had a great time.”
Jamie said, “I’d like to give a huge thank you to the Tilligerry community, and all the areas Snak’N’Rap has ran this past year.”
The event wasn’t just about skating, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
There was music by DJ KiDream, spinning records, whilst painting old vinyls with the young people.
The participants got to keep their handcrafted vinyl artwork.
The folk from Up&Up were also on hand creating a street art piece for all to see.
The skatepark was full with scooter riders showing off their talents and skills.
Jamie Brewster and his team at TYCA are looking forward to a fresh year of new events in 2018, and meeting lots more new faces.
