HAVE you had experience with finding cancer
resources or webpage development?
Bass Coast Health (BCH) is seeking expres-
sions of interest from community members to
participate in a reference group for the Gippsland
Cancer Connections (GCC) project.
The four month project aims to develop a web-
page with local resource links to relevant cancer
services across Gippsland and surrounds.
Community members will have the opportu-
nity to work with BCH to develop the Gippsland
Cancer Connections webpage and printable re-
sources related to cancer services.
These resources will assist people to locate
regional and local services, as well as identify
options available for cancer sufferers on BCH’s
BCH is looking for community members who:
• have accessed existing cancer services within
the Gippsland region
• tried to locate information or support about
cancer within the Gippsland region
• have experience with webpage development.
Participation will involve four meetings be-
tween February and May to review resources and
the design of the webpage.
If you would like to help improve local cancer
services and resources, BCH would love to hear

NEW cars, especially those out of the Nis-
san and Hyundai stable, are built so well
these days that they have much higher rates
of reliability than cars of the past.
But as good as the reliability is, it’s still not
a case of set and forget.
Consistent good performance is based on
regular maintenance where your service in-
tervals are set at times when various con-
sumables; oil filters, oil, belts, hoses, cool-
ant, etc can be replaced to keep your car
running at optimum levels.
And getting your car running super effi-
ciently will save, rather than cost you money
in the long run.
But, between services, things can and do
go wrong and at Edneys Leongatha they not
only have scheduled maintenance down to a
fine art, they have a strong record in the area
of major and minor mechanical repairs as
well, stemming from their role as the district
RACV Deport and Roadside repairer.
It’s a role they have discharged with dis-
tinction for many years.
Service Manager Nick McRae is proud of
Edney’s service division and the tradition is
has developed in the local community over
“We certainly pride ourselves on the qual-
ity and efficiency of our service but there are
a lot of others things we do besides servic-
ing and maintaining Nissans and Hyundais, ”
said Nick this week.
“We also fit all kinds of accessories from
bull bars to driving lights, protective gear,
tow balls; anything you want to add.
“We also maintain and repair all makes
and models, specialising in engine repairs
and driveline repairs, diffs, gearboxes etc.
“We have a spotless, modern and well-ap-
pointed workshop and an excellent team of
Of course Edney’s specialise in Nissan and
Hyundai but their technicians are trained to
work on all makes and models, using the lat-
est in computer diagnostic gear specific to
those makes and models.
As well as working with individual clients,
they also offer a fleet maintenance service.
They have a quick turnaround on service
and repairs and they are happy to quote for
services and work as required.
But the best thing to do is beat the prob-
lems before they start and you can only do
that with regular and scheduled mainte -
Typically, minor car services come every
10,000 to 15,000km when such things as
oil and oil filter are replaced, and there’s a
checklist of inspections from belts, to hoses,
brakes, brake fluid, cooling system tests,
fluid top-ups, transmission, steering and
suspension checks, windscreen wipers, air,
fuel filters, lights and tyres.
A major service, every 30,000 to 45,000
depending on manufacturers will include
all of the above but here there will also be
some major replacement work to be done on
brakes, engine (at least replace spark plugs),
wheel bearings, transmission line oils, bat-
tery and more.
There will also be scheduled replacements
to timing chains and the like that qualified
and accredited workshops like Edney’s will
be able to advise you about.
So when it comes to keeping your car at its
best, it’s hard to go past Edney’s Leongatha
for maintenance and repairs to all makes
