All set for group conference

Preparations are well underway for West Wimmera Group Conference at Horsham Uniting Hall on Friday.

The theme suggested for this event is a time for Linking Hands in Friendship. 

West Wimmera Group Craft Exhibition will be on September 2 and 3 in the Horsham CWA Hall.

There will be stalls and a raffle for group funds.

General admission is $6 and light refreshments will be available at $5 per plate. Doors open between 10am and  3.30pm.

There will be a varied and interesting range of entry classes including craft and hobbies, hand embroidery, knitting and crocheting, sewing, cooking, jams and preserves, cut flowers and vegetables, photography, floral arrangements, and a junior class to cater for our younger family members and junior members through to 18 years. 

Special trophies will be available for West Wimmera Group members and other trophies for craft work by CWA members from other groups. 

Entries to exhibition secretaries Helen Torey or Bev Shalders close on August 26.

I hope to be able to tell the stories behind some of the trophies in a future column. 

Your support and enthusiasm in coming to either exhibit or just to view is urged to make this local event a success.

On another note, the go-to home-away-from-home for country women and their families through the years has been ‘Umina’, situated in a quiet shady area of Toorak, and surrounded by a beautiful Edna Walling Garden.

Umina Country Women’s Association bed and breakfast provides well-priced accommodation close to both trams and trains into the city. 

People can make bookings on 9827 8971 or go to website for more information.

Available to all, when available, not just members, it has been a haven for people with loved ones in hospital and so on.

Close to Toorak village, supermarkets, restaurants of varied cuisines, it makes for safe haven for not just those requiring single accommodation, but also catering for couples and families.

This beautiful home has been a very significant part of CWA for many years.
