Square East may soon be alight with food and festivities later this year, after
the Ashburton District Council today approved $13,000 of funding to go towards
the district’s second Bite Nite event.
Nite, a family friendly event organised by the Ashburton Youth Council in June
last year, brought the community together to enjoy food, entertainment,
activities and to raise money for youth-based charity 24/7 Youth Work.
the success of the event, the Youth Council is looking to host another Bite
Nite event this year, requiring funding to help get it off the ground. The
District Council today approved those funds from its Community Events budget.
Mayor Donna Favel says, “It was wonderful to see our community come together
and enjoy such a fantastic evening at last year’s Bite Nite event. It was a
great initiative by the Youth Council, and we are thrilled to put our support
behind the event this year.”
2017 Bite Nite event was funded through a Ministry of Youth Development grant
from Central Government, however those funds are not available to the Ashburton
Youth Council this year.
its Long Term Plan, the District Council has allocated $70,000 of funds to go
towards Council-run community events, of which $13,000 will be used for Bite
is expected that Bite Nite will be held in late September. The Youth Council
will provide further details of the event in coming weeks.
