Peats Ridge & District Branch

Welcome to The Peats Ridge & District Branch

The Peats Ridge region of the NSW Central Coast sits up in the hinterland backdrop to the coastal suburbs. With a strong history in agriculture, especially citrus and poultry, the members of the CWA branch understand the importance of sustainable farming. Though recent years have seen a slight move away from this history, there remains a very important and connection to the land for property owners in the region with a more diverse use of the rich farmland.

The CWA of NSW Peats Ridge and District branch meets in the Community Hall in the grounds of the Peats Ridge School on the first Monday of the month at 10am. This proximity to the small local school enables our members to have a strong and very important role within the school curriculum and enjoy sharing their knowledge with the students.

Regular Meetups

1st Monday, 10am

A school farm has been established where children are actively encouraged to take ownership of the ongoing functioning of this, growing many vegetables and fruits as well as tending to the free range chickens.

These products are then included in cookery classes so the children learn about the paddock to plate relationship.

Members are also very active with fundraising for various projects and causes by catering and selling goodies at local markets. Advocacy plays a large role with the members having a voice at the CWA of NSW state level on matters that effect our agriculture and wildlife.

We would love to have you drop along and meet us.

Upcoming Events

A date for your diary. Come on out over the June 12 – 13th weekend and wander around the Central Coast hinterland for the 2021 Harvest Festival.
Wander on past the CWA branches from the Central Coast who are holding stalls at 3 different venues on the trail.
Among those  will be the girls from the Peats Ridge Branch who will be situated in the grounds of the Somersby Gardens. You will find their location on the map. These ladies are selling delicious hot food, devonshire teas, and homemade morsels as well.
Peats Ridge and District branch formed in 1946 and celebrated their 75th birthday in March 2021. Branch Patron, Mrs Barbara Chapman did the
honours of cutting the cake which members enjoyed eating. It was a lovely day and we are proud the branch is still going strong serving the local community.

Recently the women and some husbands of the CWA Mountain branches; Somersby, Peats Ridge and Mangrove Mountain Evening celebrated together with a Christmas gathering to farewell the year.  It was lovely to see all the friendly smiling faces enjoying a meal together at the Mangrove Mountain Community Hall. The delicious hot luncheon was enjoyed by all.
A historic photograph was presented to a long standing family in the district. A Trivia game to stretch our minds and memories and a lovely Christmas story read to us by Christine.
With lots of talking, laughing and catch ups it was a great way to end 2020.

Being very aware of social distancing regulations, our members have continued to forge ahead with community projects.

We are meeting every Monday to produce face masks for sale to the public. It is a wonderful chance to have a natter and catch up with members on the assembly line. Please feel free to contact us if you require any face masks.

Our branch cooks are very disappointed that the Group cookery competition has had to be cancelled this year. Christine was sure her delicious fruit cake was a certain winner. Yummo.
