Community Focus- QCWA Warwick

An organisation over 100 years old, the Queensland Country Women’s Association (QCWA) works to improve lives through advocacy and by providing opportunities for women around education, health and community throughout every phase of a woman’s life.

Here in Warwick they run the very popular QCWA Condamine Valley Tea Rooms – right next door to the coach terminal on Grafton Street.

WFS General Manager, Ahmad, popped round to pick up a tasty toasty and welcome back the QCWA Volunteers to the Tea Rooms. He also spoke to QCWA Condamine Valley Branch Member, Joyce Seaby.

Joyce said the QCWA Volunteers are all very pleased to be back. Currently they are unable to provide a dine-in option as they do not have a commercial dishwasher. The team have submitted a grant and currently awaiting approval.

They hope to be able to offer a dine in service again, soon.

In the meantime, they would love it if people could call them to place orders for lunches over the phone, to save waiting time in the tea rooms.

“The volunteers do miss all the lovely people that used to come in with their carers and enjoy a morning tea”, Joyce said.

She also recommended picking up a copy of Judy Bilbrough’s wonderful Recipe book when you pop in.

The QCWA Tea Rooms are now opening four days a week, Tuesday to Friday. They would like to be able to open on Mondays but do not have enough volunteers. If you are able to help out please get in touch.
