Recently Todd, our local policeman, gave a passionate talk on men’s health to a group of Men’s Shed participants hosted at the Friendly Inn Hotel. While the Men’s shed is open to men of all ages the group consisted of mainly older and retired men. The talk encompassed men but was an eye opener into the problems faced not only by men but all of society in today’s age. Todd is very experienced in community wellbeing and articulated the problems and challenges faced daily by the police force, particularly in domestic violence and drug abuse cases. I would suggest other organisations within the Valley to engage Todd as a speaker to widen the knowledge of these important matters.
