The Country Womens Association was formed in 1922 because of an urgent need in rural and regional NSW.
Country women were fighting isolation and an appalling lack of health facilities and soon realized they had nowhere else to turn but to themselves. Now, 100 years later and with more than 8000 members belonging to 370 branches, the ladies of the CWA are still committed to improving the lives of other women and their families.
The annual Awareness Week is an opportunity to focus on one particular issue.
This year’s focus is to increase awareness around the term neurodiversity (which includes ADHD, autism, dyslexia and Tourette syndrome ), and the challenges that those with neurodivergent conditions face, which is particularly true for women and children in the country.
Castle Hill Branch of the Country Womens Association will be holding a Market Day Stall on 2nd September at our Cottage, 2 Annangrove Road, Kenthurst from 10am until 2pm, where as well as being able to purchase our jams, pickles and knitted goods, and enjoy our famous Devonshire Teas, visitors can talk about any experiences or difficulties they may have had while suffering from one of these neurodivergent conditions.
