Woy Woy Country Women Association Branch was awarded first place at the 2018 Australian Event Services Award State Conference in Armidale.
The award is granted to worthwhile recipients that record the largest percentage of increased membership over two years. Branch president Ms Jane Bowtell said the members of Woy Woy CWA were thrilled with the award. “It is thanks to our members and their advocacy and determination that we have increased our membership enough to be recognised.
“With increased membership comes new ideas, with new ideas comes enthusiasm, with enthusiasm comes momentum and with momentum comes the ability to see what we can do in our community to make a positive difference to so many.
“We don’t all bake, we don’t all do a craft, we don’t all knit or crochet and we don’t all make jams and pickles”.
“What we do make is a team: A team of diverse ladies that help each other, look out for each other and nurture each other while supporting and giving to our community,” Ms Bowtell said.
