Gary James, Sales Manager, James Trucks & Machinery Masterton ''Because we sell top quality Stihl products it makes sense to use a top quality newspaper. Since purchasing the Stihl Shop in Masterton I have chosen Wairarapa News as our predominate print media. Our shop has expanded considerably during that time and won numerous national awards - Wairarapa News has played a big part in our success. For quality and long lasting service you only need one Stihl chainsaw and one newspaper, that's why we always use Wairarapa News to promote our business.'' Jeremy Sharp, Stihl Shop Masterton Healthy bloke: The Cancer Society national men's health co-ordinator Steve Kenny is promoting their new website www.getthetools.org.nz as part of Men's Health Week this week. WOF due on men's health problems By PIERS FULLER COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS They will be holding training programmes in Wairarapa on men's health and the Cancer Society is looking for community champions who can go out to their workplaces and clubs and get the message out there about how important it is for men to look after their health. Visit www.getthetools.org.nz ' We know to look after our assets to prevent expensive maintenance down the track. We fuel our cars right, oil them well, change their tyres when we notice they're worn and take them to the yard when they need a service, but hey . . . what about getting serviced ourselves? ' The call is going out for men to take better care of their health, if not for their own benefit, for those who love and rely on them. It s Men s Health Week this week and now is as good a time as any for Wairarapa blokes to take action. The Cancer Society has a new initiative called Get the Tools which aims to make it easy for men to take proactive steps to check their health. The website www.getthetools.org.nz is an easy-to-use and humorous col- lection of resources that tackles men s health issues in a number of areas. The website is loaded with videos and useful infor- mation that guides people through the process without tak- ing itself too seriously. The Cancer Society national men s health co-ordinator, Steve Kenny, was in Wairarapa recently liaising with local staff and working to get the message out. The key areas of men s health include prostate, bowel, testicular, lung, sexuality, work- life balance, weight, nutrition, mental health, skin, mainten- ance and getting active. The WOF Check online is a good example of how the website works. Speaking in colloquial kiwi lingo here is a taste of how it goes: We know to look after our assets to prevent expensive maintenance down the track. We fuel our cars right, oil them well, change their tyres when we notice they re worn and take them to the yard when they need a service, but hey . . . what about getting serviced ourselves? (No, not like that!). How often do we see to our own health checks? Checking in early with your doc- tor or health professional about something you have noticed or are concerned about not only gives you peace of mind; it may help to reduce your odds of big- ger health issues down the line. Let s call it preventative main- tenance . If you want to check up on your own WOF status, take a look at these resources . . .
