Cowra CWA Evening Branch News

Once again Cowra CWA Evening Branch hosted the annual Festival dinner at Cowra Services Club. Branch members were joined by Cowra Councillors, Youth Ambassadors, CWA members from Conimbla and Cowra Day branches, as well as spouses and friends. A traditional Indonesian dish was served after we viewed a Zoom presentation organised by Di Robinson with Elizabeth McClean whose family has lived in Djakarta since 2012. We saw volcanoes, rice paddies and cassava and cultural features like food, home design. A major problem of plastic waste because of the use of plastic water bottles was sympathetically explained.

Regional Health Incentive Package Making A Real Difference

Healthcare workers are taking up incentives to move to regional NSW, or stay in our community, with more than 4,700 workers accessing the program which is future proofing healthcare in rural and regional NSW.
