Members of the Otara- Papatoetoe Local Board have signed off new arrangements to make it easier for people to take their concerns directly to their elected representa- tives. Local board members will be available on weekday mornings at the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board office in the Manukau civic building. Chairman John McCracken says it's an extra step to improve public access to board members. They feel it's vital to be accessible to our local people to help them deal with their individual and community issues with the Auckland Council,'' he says. People can also contact their local board members directly. The local board members will be available on week- days, from 9am to noon, at the local board office on level one of the Manu- kau civic centre, 31-33 Wiri Station Rd. Contact local board administrator Robyn Phillips on 261-8503 to confirm which board members will be avail- able on any given day. Children hardest hit by sunlight Parents are being urged to make sure their chil- dren are well protected from the harsh sun this summer. Plunket says a few minutes of gentle'' sun- light early in the morn- ing or late in the day is good for children. But babies and toddlers can quickly burn in the sun because they have very delicate skin, national child safety adviser Sue Campbell says. We all love the sum- mer weather but we need to remember to slip, slop, slap and wrap. Children also learn by example, so seeing you wear a hat outside and covering up is the best way to help them develop good habits.'' Cancer Society adviser Dr Judith Galtry says the summer sun in New Zealand can be harsh and damaging. Sunburn can cause painful burns, lead to long-term skin damage and a higher risk of skin cancer, including melanoma, later in life. People often don't realise you can still get burnt on a cloudy day in New Zealand.'' Tips for sun protec- tion: Make sure young chil- dren always wear hats with wide brims or caps with flaps that protect their face, neck and ears when they are outside Keep them protected with clothes that cover their arms, legs and bodies Limit their playtime in direct sunlight -- 11am to 4pm is the most dangerous time Use sunscreen on exposed parts of the body and reapply it regularly, especially after swim- ming Keep babies in the shade at all times For children in prams and buggies -- keep their eyes shaded and skin covered and use a sun shade whenever possible. See www.plunket.org. nz or www.cancernz.org. nz for more sunsafe tips. A wheelchair try for ABs Game on: Association for Spinal Concerns task office manager Anita O'Connor and Parafed's Leon Katavich enjoy the Spinal Unit's community garden in Otara ahead of tomorrow's annual Show Off Day. Photo: MELISSA KINEALY By MELISSA KINEALY The All Blacks will be taking to wheelchairs tomorrow for a game of rugby in Otara. Stars Joe Rokocoko, John Afoa, Benson Stanley, Keven Mealamu, Jerome Kaino, Isaia Toeava and Sherwin Stowers will take on members of the Auckland wheelchair rugby team. It's a special game for Show Off Day at the Auckland spinal unit in Otara where the Associ- ation of Spinal Concerns helps rehabilitate spinal patients. Association task office man- ager Anita O'Connor expects more than 200 people for the free event which is open to all. She's promising wheelchair races, mouth painting, sports displays, disability information, modified vehicles and a sausage sizzle. Visitors can also meet Rex, a robotic exoskeleton, and check out a wheelchair that's been turned into Thomas the Tank Engine. The day's being run in con- junction with Parafed Auck- land. Parafed co-ordinator Leon Katavich works out of the spinal unit and has been in a wheelchair for nine years since a snowboarding accident in Canada. Tomorrow Mr Katavich will be cheering from the sidelines at the All Blacks match. These days his favoured sport is sailing and he particularly enjoys the sailing simulator in the unit gym. Many of the spinal unit's patients are in wheelchairs because of car accidents and sports injuries. The Show Off Day is on February 12 from 10am-3pm at the Auckland Spinal Unit, 30 Bairds Rd, Otara. Phone Anita O'Connor on 270-3526 or email info@ tasc.org.nz for more information on the day.
