The Australian Hearing bus is stopping by Childers next week to offer free hearing checks. Lisa Christiansen, manager at Australian Hearing Bundaberg, said as age-related hearing loss developed, it was common for people to not be aware of the problem. “A hearing check is a quick and easy way to measure the sounds you can and can’t hear. Our team will also be on hand to guide you through what next steps you may have to take,” she said. The bus will be at Woolworths Childers next Tuesday from 8.30am–4pm. No appointments necessary.
