The community proj- ect is happening in an area bordered by Fencible Drive and Wellington, Picton and Cook Streets, from 1-4pm on Saturday, August 23. It’s being run by Manukau Beau- tification Charitable Trust (MBCT) relationship manager Barbara Car- ney and Howick Village Business Association (HVBA) town centre manager Jenny Foster. “These clean-ups are about sup- porting and undertaking actions that help beautify our living environment,” Mrs Carney told the Times. The organisers hope to enlist the support of East Auckland organisa- tions, churches and members of the public. MBCT is providing the equipment for the clean-up, so all people need to do is register beforehand and then show up and get stuck in. “We’ll be gardening and weeding, painting and washing fences, prun- ing trees, picking up rubbish and water-blasting,” says Mrs Carney. “We’re happy for whatever time people can give us. At the end there will be a barbecue for clean-up vol- unteers provided by the HVBA as a thank you for their help.” Mrs Foster says the project goal is to inspire residents to care about Howick Village’s appearance. “It’s about instilling civic pride in people and getting them to take own- ership of the area. “It’s not until someone comes along with a fresh pair of eyes that you realise how much needs to be done.” To register for the community clean-up in Howick Village from 1-4pm on Saturday, August 23, phone the Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust on 269-4080, or email email@example.com.

While centuries ago the aristocracy took pride in the fact that their excruciating pain reflected their wealth and high living, today it is now understood and able to be managed well. Gout is a painful joint condition most commonly involving the big toe but ankles, knees, wrists and elbows can also be involved. Gout occurs when the uric acid level is too high in the blood stream. Either the kidneys cannot filter out the uric acid adequately or there is overproduction of uric acid partly due to excessive intake of certain food and drinks. Men are more vulnerable to gout than women. Risk factors include certain medications such as diuretics, a family history of gout, impaired kidney function and ethnicity, Maori and Pacific Island men having a particularly high risk. Gout and high uric acid are known to be risk factors for heart disease so people who have had gout are checked over carefully to assess their risk of other health problems. An acute flare of gout can be one of the worst pains people suffer. With correct medications it will settle down then treatment is targeted at keeping the uric acid level low in the blood to prevent further attacks. This can mean a commitment to lifelong medication helping to preserve the joints and kidneys. Diet changes are also important so purine-containing foods such as shellfish, offal, legumes as well as beer and soft drinks are reduced. Gout can be effectively managed. It is an important condition that should be treated properly. Prevention is better than repeatedly treating acute attacks. If you or your family members suffer from what you think is gout make a doctor’s appointment to get it sorted.
