Hamper donated to celebrate birthday
The Woy Woy branch of the Country Women's Association have donated a hamper to the family of the first baby born on, or closest to, June 8.
June 8 was the 87th birthday of the branch.
"Our branch has a strong history of supporting the health of women and babies," said branch president Ms Jane Bowtell.
"Our hall originally operated as a baby health centre for quite some time from the 1940s, and now hosts the BreastScreen van each year.
"It took our founder, Mrs Staples, eight years to raise the funds to build our hall after founding the branch in 1932.
"We are so privileged to be able to carry on her good work, and the work of the many women before us.
"We'd also like to extend a huge thank you to Theresa, midwife and maternity manager at Gosford Hospital for graciously accepting our gift."
