CWA branch president speaks on radio

The Country Women's Association Woy Woy branch president Ms Jane Bowtell has spoken on statewide radio on May 19 about the work of the association.

Ms Bowtell was interviewed on the Weekend Mornings program with ABC Sydney Radio 702 presenter Mr Simon Marnie.

Se spoke about the branch's recent success at the Central Coast Alive Vegan Festival before talking about the power of the Country Women's Association as the single largest women's lobbying group in the country.

Ms Bowtell said that the Association was more than just "tea and scones" with each individual branch containing its own rich history as a mecca of women's advocacy, camaraderie and skill-sharing.

"At its core the Association is about respecting the women that came before us and retaining the knowledge of those older generations.

"We owe it to them to keep these skills alive and all the things they taught people and all the things they did for their communities.

"Yes, we have to modernise and bring things into this century, but at the Association's core this is what we're about and that's what we try to achieve at Woy Woy," Ms Bowtell said.

Ms Bowtell said the Woy Woy branch had an 87-year history of service, including time as a baby health centre and currently hosting the Breast Screen van where women can have mammograms.

Other projects Ms Bowtell spoke about during the segment were the Woy Woy branch's kitchen chicken and their new bra garden planted at the Woy Woy CWA Hall known as the Hanging Garden of Bra-bylon.
