Hello September - and hello to Spring. Can you believe that 'Winter' has been and gone?!? This weather has been quite incredible. i have definitely enjoyed the stunning days of blue sky and warm sun with a slight chill in the air. It has definitely helped us feel pumped each day and making those long work hours worth it - especially with what is just around the corner in TWO days!
Have you booked a table with friends and/or family at Amigos Cromwell for either Wednesday 4th or Thursday 5th September? Our youth are Taking Over Amigos Cromwell for some awesome reasons:
1. Our youth, who are a part of our Cooking Up a Storm Youth Development Programme that has been operating these past three weeks, have developed some incredible cooking & life skills with CYTs focus on experiential learning (learning by doing). The support of amazing local community members and businesses in this field has assisted our young people to be ready for the frontline of an operating restaurant where they will serve you, the lucky customer, from setting your table, taking your order, serving your meal & drinks and clearing the table for the next guests!
2. This awesome event serves as a much needed fundraiser for Cromwell Youth Trust. after the two nights half of the portions of sales will be kindly donated to our non-profit NZ registered charity (CC23961) with those funds going directly back to the benefit of our young people throughout Cromwell & Bannockburn.
So get on the phone today and call Amigos Cromwell on (03) 445 8263 to book a table - please make sure you reference Cromwell Youth Trust when you book.
We cannot wait to see you there!
In other exciting news, August saw a very busy time all round for our organisation; Rhys had to close The Hangout Youth Centre for a total of five (5) days over August - but this was due to some positive reasons, three (3) days were to ensure our Cooking Up a Storm programme operated, one (1) day was due to Rhys heading north to Taupo for the annual Bluelight AGM, and the final day was spent in Alexandra promoting CYT at the 2019 Youth Expo!
What is still incredible is that our foot traffic numbers are continuing to increase immensely - check out the graph below that compares 2018 to 2019 youth attendance over the past few months - to give an idea of how busy we are!
