CWA hall painted for first time in 40 years
The Country Women's Association Hall at Umina has been painted for the first time in 40 years thanks to the help of a local hardware retailer.
"What would have normally cost us over $6000 was all done free of charge with paint and labour kindly provided by the staff at Umina Bunnings," according to Ms Emily Bowtell.
"We were thrilled and so touched by the offer.
"The association is an organisation that really tries to help people and inspire kindness and understanding in communities, so to be on the receiving end of that kindness was really special," Ms Bowtell said.
"We feel so amazingly recognised and the Hall looks amazing.
"It's become a true landmark.
"It hasn't looked this good since it was built and I'd like to say how truly humbled and thankful the association is," Ms Bowtell said.
