In June the Acting General Manager of Walgett Shire Council, Hugh Percy, accepted DEG's invitation to morning tea. It had been many years since he had first met DEG as the Council's Administrator. DEG expressed its concern about the need for good facilities
for the Council's youth programs and learnt of the renovation budget he had devoted to the Youth Development Team to bring the old Youth Centre up to scratch. The Council's youth program had not fared well in its arrangement to use PCYC facilities, and the youth program had moved back into the old Youth Centre - immediately increasing the number of attendees to its program, and therefore its effectiveness. After this morning tea, DEG approached the Council's Youth Development Team and offered the services of Yuwaya Ngarrali to support the Team to plan, draw up and cost the renovations it wants.
