Angaston CWA set to wind up

After nearly 70 years, the Angaston Country Women’s Association will close.

The group has battled dwindling numbers for some time now and at a special meeting on Wednesday, decided it would close in June.

Member of 16 years Evonne Pritchard said it was a sad time.

“Unfortunately we have decided we will be closing,” she said.

“Two ladies who hold (executive) positions won’t be rejoining, and it could be up to four members we have lost.

“We’ve got to the stage where we will have three meetings before we close in June.”

Mrs Pritchard attributed the dwindling numbers to aging members.

She said it was difficult to get younger members involved as they were busy with children and work.

“It’s a shame, but it’s dwindled down to the point that we haven’t got the numbers to have a meeting.”
