FOR generations, the Country Women’s Association (CWA) has come together to help locals in need.
The Tambar Springs branch is no different as it prepares to host a morning tea at the Mullaley hall on July 27 to support the region’s drought affected farmers.
Branch secretary, Heather Martin, told the Namoi Valley Independent the main intention of the event is to provide locals with “moral support”.
“This morning tea will be a great opportunity for people around our area to come together and take a break from their usual routines,” Mrs Martin said.
“They can talk about the drought and everything that goes along with that, or they can talk about anything else, this is just a chance to break things up a bit and come together.”
Mrs Martin said morning tea was a staple of the CWA.
“We originally floated the idea of doing an evening event, but we decided a morning tea would be more fitting,” she said.
“After all, morning teas are what CWA is known for and so is helping people.
“Whether that’s through fundraising or events like this which provide moral support, CWA is here to help and we always have been.”
The branch secretary said while the event would be held in Mullaley all were welcome to attend.
“We would love to see as many people there as possible,” she said.
“As well as moral support, awareness is another thing we hope to achieve through this event.
“Drought conditions are all apart of farming and any chance we can have to get people together to draw attention to how things are at the moment is a good thing.
“On top of that, it may also be a good way for people to exchange ideas on what they are doing that may help one another.
“So you don’t have to live in Tambar Springs or Mullaley, we would love to see everyone there for a quality morning tea.”
The morning tea will be held at the Mullaley hall on July 27, from 9am.
