No-one knows the heartbeat of the Liverpool Plains Shire quite like Quirindi CWA.
In an effort to bring some happiness and ease to the lives of many struggling with the COVID-19 restrictions, the dedicated women have been delivering pamper packs across the region.
Places like the Werris Creek Multi Purpose Centre, Eloura, Home Care, and the Women's Refuge have already had special deliveries.
The elderly especially have been given pyjamas, track pants or jeans, with some hand-made masks to accompany them. Home Care residents welcomed six rugs and masks, and East Side Child Care Centre have received toys.
People want to get out, and they are really feeling the impact of being at home.Colleen Wills
President Colleen Wills explains the packs "vary dramatically" in size and content, as some places have more space for storage than others, and some are in need of things like toothbrushes, soaps, essential items.
"They have been very well received," Ms Wills said.
"We have women make the bags from left over material for people to go shopping with. It's certainly a very worthwhile exercise."
The CWA hope to make more scrunchies for the children of women in the refuge, and have had several more requests for children's packs. The impact of isolation caused by the of corona-crisis is deeply concerning for the CWA.
"People want to get out, and they are really feeling the impact of being at home," Ms Wills explained.
"They want to feel there is a purpose in life, something to do. It's been especially hard on the older generation.
"They want to be doing something for someone."
She says her members are eagerly awaiting to resume meetings, ready to implement social distancing and get back to their handy crafts. Having an hour out of the house would do the world of good, she says.
"It has been a very hard on the single mothers who have to go to work to earn their bread and butter, and then have to think about the children. It has been a really big issue."
She has heard many tales of hardships recently, especially with the disparity in those getting JobKeeper and those who are not. Still, she is glad to know everyone is cooperating with the government.
"We have to do our best and take everything day by day."
