Branch president named Woman of the Year
Woy Woy Country Women's Association branch president Ms Jane Bowtell has been named the Gosford Woman of the Year for 2019.
Ms Bowtell received the honour after being selected by the Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.
The awards are held annually with Members of Parliament across the state getting to choose a woman who lives in their electorate to honour for their outstanding contribution to industry, community and society as business leaders, role models, mentors and volunteers in their local area.
According to branch publicity officer Ms Emily Bowtell who is Jane's daughter, Ms Tesch surprised Ms Bowtell with the award by dropping into the branch's meeting on June 26.
"We would like to thank both Liesl Tesch and Tanya Davies, Minister for Women, for recognising Jane for her outstanding work both as our president and a community leader.
"We are extremely privileged to have such a strong, community-minded and driven woman at the helm to continue the work of the women before us," Ms Bowtell said.
