CWA Zumba

My local branch of the CWA may have closed due to lack of numbers but the ladies in Tasmania sure know how to spice things up!

The incoming president of Tasmania's CWA wants the organisation to take a greater role as an advocate for healthy living for the elderly, and Zumba classes are part of her strategy.

Tasmania's Country Womens Association is celebrating a significant milestone today as it hosts their 75th annual conference in Devonport.

Jenny Ivy from Swansea is the next Tasmanian state president, has plans in her term for the organisation to act as an advocate for the elderly.

To help members remain healthy and active, and for them to be able to live in their own homes.

"We are an ageing population in the CWA and we do have younger members of course.

I would like to see us working with like minded agencies, Council for the Ageing and other organisations, in promoting the healthy well being of our members".

The Swansea branch of the CWA is organises Zumba classes while the conference had a workshop on Croquet.

Tomorrow they will mark the 75th anniversary with special morning tea at the National Trust property Home Hill at Devonport. - via
