THE Queensland Country Women's Association has moved quickly to remove a squatter from its hall at Lake Clarendon.

Residents in the Lake Clarendon region raised the alarm about the QCWA hall being inhabited, expressing safety concerns for the resident living in the hall which has no living or shower facilities.

Southern Region QCWA state vice president Sheila Campbell visited the hall on Monday and gave the woman 14 days to leave.

"We didn't even know there was a lady living there until contacted (by the Star)," Ms Campbell said.

The woman living in the hall contacted the Star and said she had only been living in the property for three or four nights per week and had "an arrangement" whereby she could live in the hall.

"My arrangement was with a person who I believed was a QCWA person," the woman said.
