The SA Country Women’s Association Mount Barker branch has continued its proud tradition of helping the Hills community by delivering a box of hand-made winter clothes for toddlers to local MP Dan Cregan.

These clothes are carefully hand-made and very high quality. Anybody who could use an extra jumper, small beanie or fabric boots for their toddler is welcome to drop past our office.”
