As reported last week, Tatura police are endeavouring to resurrect the Blue Light Disco to give Tatura children aged five to 13 years a social outlet.July 16, 2014 3:55am
Lend a hand: Tatura police Sergeant Darryl Phillips is seeking community support to get the Blue Light Disco up and running again.
Tatura police Sergeant Darryl Phillips said the disco had been in recess for 12 months due to a decline in support from volunteers.
‘‘As children move from this age group, fewer parent volunteers and committee members are coming on board. I simply can’t do it by myself,’’ Sgt Phillips said.
‘‘For us (police) to be able to operate, we need the parents of the kids who are likely to attend the discos, to put their hands up and join the committee.’’
With this in mind, Sgt Phillips said an annual general meeting would be held on Monday, July 28 at 7.30 pm at Tatura’s Victory Hall.
‘‘We need to form a committee if the Blue Light Disco program is to resume in Tatura, so it’s important that as many people as possible turn up to the AGM,’’ he said.
Apart from this year, Blue Light Discos, with the support of police, have been running in Tatura since 2002.
