From heavy-hitting to heart-lifting, CWA members tackled the issues that matter to country communities at its recent state conference at Bega.
There were motions on solar plants to medicinal plants and everything in between but at the heart of this organisations is the mission to make life better for women and their families, especially those in rural and remote Australia.
Intrinsic to the CWA is its commitment to craft and cooking and those efforts were on display at the conference including the work of two junior members of the Pleasant Hills branch.
Louise and Natalie Hasler had won first place with their Diamond Art in their respective sections at the Riverina Group Conference, which automatically qualified them for the state event.
Natalie went on to achieve a second prize in the 12 Years and Under Junior Competition and while Louise received a Junior Achievement Award in the 18 yrs and Under section.
With ongoing restrictions around COVID, the number of participants at the conference was limited this year.
However one very proud grandmother, Margaret Hasler, was particularly chuffed to be at Bega to see Louise and Natalie's work on display.
Meanwhile Jindera CWA was making it their mission to officially condemn the building of major solar plants on farming land.
The state conference passed a motion put forward by the Jindera branch "opposing the construction of large-scale solar plants on prime agricultural land to protect food and fibre productivity".
