Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : May 27th 2009
10 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, May 28, 2009 MB NEWS Cause unites clubs West Tigers players Keith Galloway and Corey Payne support Call to Arms. SPORTING clubs are being invited to take up the fight against one of their fiercest opponents -- cancer -- by holding a Call To Arms match in July where players wear a yellow armband. It is a show of support to men who have survived cancer, those currently facing the cancer battle, and to remember mates who have lost their lives. Wests Tigers are already backing the cause and will wear yellow armbands when they play on June 5. All clubs are encouraged to run fundrais- ing activities throughout the month with all funds going towards Cancer Council's men's cancer research, prevention, infor- mation and support services. Cancer affects one in two men by the age of 85. Call To Arms fundraising manager Julie Roberts said compared with women, Aust- ralian men are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer. Every day 171 men in Aust- ralia are diagnosed with cancer. Men are also less likely to survive their diagnosis. ''The reality is, it could be your father, your brother, your husband, your son or your best mate,'' she said. ''Wearing a yellow armband, and getting involved in Call To Arms is a simple way you can help save them from hearing the words you have cancer.''

STRATHFIELD Council our Community news Planning For Our Community Council's Draft Management Plan 2009-2012 is now on public exhibition until 23 June. The Draft Management Plan provides a summary of how Council will ensure Strathfield continues to move forward over the coming years, with a focus of improving the quality of life in the Municipality. The Plan is available for viewing at Council's Customer Service Centre, Strathfield Library and on Council's website. Street Maintenance Works Council is working to maintain roads and footpaths in the Municipality by monitoring and completing maintenance works for the benefit of road users and the community. Recent completed works include realigning the pedestrian crossing at Strathfield Square, (pictured below) and a footpath reconstruction and installation of a barrier in Subway Lane in Homebush. Additionally streets are swept approximately on a four week cycle and trips and other hazards on footpaths are attended to on a priority basis. E-Waste Collection Service Every year on 5 June we celebrate World Environment Day, highlighting worldwide awareness of the environment and the need for action. To coincide with the day, Council is encouraging residents to recycle more and is hosting an "On Call" E-waste collection service whereby community members have the opportunity to book in a collection of non-working electrical goods that include computers, printers and old TV's, just to name a few. For further information about this service contact Council on 9748 9999.
