IT IS the end of an era for Goovigen Country Women's Association as the branch closed last month.

President June Thiedeke said it was sad but inevitable as they only had a few members left.

"And I am in my 80s and some others are getting quite old,” she said.

"There wasn't much else we could do.”

For now, the CWA hall will sit vacant.

"It will sit there like the others have,” June said.

A member of Goovigen CWA since 1967, June will still be busy.

"I have a fair garden out the back I need to tend to,” June said.

"There is just not enough hours in the day for me to do what I want to do.”

June said she will still be a CWA member.

"I will just pay my membership to a branch in Rocky and go in when I am up that way.”
