Yarrahapinni CWA well supported at Stuarts Points Bike Show

Yarrahapinni CWA members have been pleased with the outcomes of recent events.

THE recent motorcycle show, held by the Stuarts Point Men’s Shed on Saturday 9 September, proved to be a great success for the indefatigable members of the Yarrahapinni branch of the Country Women’s Association (CWA).

The strong support garnered by the organisers and the public is testament to the reciprocal value the CWA offers and strives to share locally, regionally and internationally.

Yarrahapinni CWA Branch President Diana Oakes was pleased to comment, “What a wonderful day!

“An event that demonstrated our continued work in the immediate community, ‘hands on’ involvement as well as the enduring public appreciation of our efforts.”

The bike show’s primary coordinator, Men’s Shed member Mark Merritt, elaborated, ”Our CWA members offer a reliable constant in our community, and as a joint effort, we all came together to deliver a terrific day.”

Though the Yarrahapinni CWA has welcomed a marked increase in membership within the last year, the committee are eager to enlist new members at the annual Branch AGM.

The AGM will be held at the Yarrahapinni Community House meeting room at 42 Ocean Avenue, Stuarts Point on 12 October at 10am, with all ladies welcome.

Beyond the recent event achievements with the Bike Show and the Stuarts Point and District Community Organisation’s (SPadCO) ‘Sunday Funday’, the CWA cohort are geared up for coming events which include an invitation to Scotts Head Primary School Spring Fare, 3-8pm on Friday 27 October, as well as the regularly scheduled attendance at Unkya Markets on 29 October and the Christmas Market on 9 December, and the Stuarts Point Street Stall at the Friendly Grocer on the morning of Sunday 3 December.

Yarrahapinni CWA secretary Barbara Veness is developing a calendar of events for 2024 which will include suggested art, craft and cultural activities designed to emphasise CWA activities beyond the publicly perceived ‘scones and jam’ identity of CWA.
