Woy Woy Country Womens Association Branch President, Jane Bowtell, has been named the 2019 Gosford Woman of the Year.
Bowtell received the honour after being selected by Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch. The awards are held annually, with Members of Parliament across the state getting to choose a woman who lives in their electorate to honour for their outstanding contribution to industry, community and society as business leaders, role models, mentors and volunteers in their local area.
According to the CWA Branch Publicity Officer, Emily Bowtell, who is Janes daughter, Tesch surprised Jane with the award by dropping into the Branch meeting on June 26. We would like to thank both, Liesl Tesch and Tanya Davies, Minister for Women, for recognising Jane for her outstanding work both as our president and a community leader. We are extremely privileged to have such a strong, community minded and driven woman at the helm to continue the work of the women before us. Well done, mum, we are so very proud of you, Emily said.
