Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson joined the women of the Bendemeer Country Women’s Association (CWA) this morning to celebrate 100 years friendship, tea, scones, and strong advocacy for the people of regional Australia.

Mr Anderson said the Bendemeer CWA had been strong advocates for their local community and congratulated them on this important milestone.

“The Bendemeer CWA does a lot for the local community whether it’s catering for wakes and events, supporting rural women and families, raising funds or their efforts in assisting the Bendemeer Hotel in their Northern Rivers Flood relief campaign,” Mr Anderson said.
