The Canowindra CWA branch continues to hold monthly meetings at the CWA rooms in Blatchford Street, there is also a monthly friendship morning tea and craft sessions.
At last month’s meeting Dr Andrew Rawson from Canobolas Conservation Alliance spoke to the Canowindra members of the CWA about preservation of flora in the area.
A scone making demonstration morning was also held and with a few simple techniques a lot of great batches were made. The catering committee catered for seventy five guests at a recent local wedding.
So far from fundraising activities this year, donations have been made to the Tongan tsunami and Northern NSW flood appeals.
To comply with government regulations, improvements to the CWA rooms on Blatchford Street are going ahead with the addition of safety exit lights, new concrete paths have been laid and a defibrillator purchased last year.
