THREE Wallendbeen CWA members, and their husbands, rolled up their sleeves at the Sydney Royal Easter Show last week.

The locals volunteered to work at the CWA tea rooms where the aroma of freshly baked scones, piping-hot tea, and the warmth the CWA ladies who serve the delicious treats with jam and cream are a show tradition not to be missed.

Whilst the Wallendbeen members were there, CWA received the gold Commercial Exhibitors Award for “catering outlet".

This year the ladies have set a new record for the most scones served in a day – 4988 scones were enjoyed on Monday and the new record of 50,000 in total was likely to be reached.
