CWEC had its first year of meetings via Zoom, which went very well.  

Our thanks to Mel for allowing us to use heer Zoom business account.

 

 Our AGM was face to face (apart from our President who had a sore throat!) and we had pretty much a full house.  No change in committee.

A new submission has been done on the raising of the Wyangala Dam
