Little children and parents are making the most of the summer sun and getting outdoors for the community Summer Fun series. Preschool play events are on at parks across the Shore most mornings until the end of March. Youngsters had fun with the play equipment and toys at Little Shoal Bay on December 7. Community co-ordin- ator Jill Nerheny says the preschool events are always popular. They're so well received every morning in Northcote and Glenfield.''

Travel checklist With the holidays fast approaching Care Chem- ist, the country's fastest growing community pharmacy group, has launched a travel check- list to help put together a summer first aid kit. Using the holiday travel checklist you'll be able to tick off what you have, then bring the list into your pharmacy for the remaining items. A well stocked port- able first aid kit is vitally important so you can take care of minor injur- ies as they occur as well as being better prepared to manage something more major,'' explains Care Chemist spokes- person Tania Adams. Having a ready supply of first aid basics such as pain relief, hand sanitiser, bandages, ster- ile dressings, disposable gloves and antiseptic wipes can make all the difference. Consider the things you might have to deal with at your travel destination and try to prepare accordingly. Remember, as well as having a well stocked first aid kit, it's just as important to protect yourself from the sun and pack plenty of sunscreen for everyone in the family. Don't forget about your regular medications while you are away from home,'' Tania advises. Make sure you have enough for your time away plus allow for three extra days in case the unexpected happens. Also, bear in mind that if you are travelling abroad you should carry any prescription medi- cation in your hand lug- gage, along with a copy of the prescription and a letter from your doctor. The letter should include the name of the medicine, the dosage, how much you need to travel with, and should state that the medicine is for your personal use. The best thing you can do is prepare everything a few weeks in advance.''
