Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke kicked-off NSW Women’s Week with a visit to a small all-female Young business.

During the visit, Ms Cooke congratulated the team at Amber Blythe Conveyancing, on being named the 2024 Business of the Year as part of Young’s Australia Day awards.

Ms Cooke said NSW Women’s Week 2024 was a time dedicated to celebrating the achievements and contributions of women across the Cootamundra electorate.

It also serves as a reminder of the resilience, strength and talent that women bring to local communities.

“Today is the start of NSW Women’s Week 2024 - a chance for us all to recognise the contributions of women and girls across our Cootamundra electorate,” Ms Cooke said.

“Women play a vital role in our communities, and they deserve to be celebrated for the wonderful and tireless work they do. We have some fantastic local women kicking goals and doing amazing things in their field, from sport, to small business, education, health, the arts, agriculture - the list is endless.”

“But this week is also about acknowledging the unsung heroes; the home-makers, the ones who give their time as volunteers, or committee members - those who are active in the community doing every role under the sun to help our amazing towns and villages thrive. It’s a chance for women and girls everywhere to support one another, learn from each other, and enjoy each other’s company.”

“Essentially, this week is all about honouring the achievements of women, celebrating their contributions, and inspiring generations to come, so that together we can build a brighter future for all.”
