The Rotary Club of Oberon is proud to announce the arrival of the MHERV in Oberon on December 2 and 3.

But what is MHERV?

Oberon Rotary Club president Lin Boswell is glad you asked.

"It stands for Men's Health Education Rural Van. The van is a Rotary project made possible by fundraising, generous sponsorships and time freely given by hundreds of Rotary volunteers," she said.

"This van travels all over the state of NSW and nurse Rob Woolley encourages everyone in rural and remote areas to visit the van and to have some simple health checks done whilst he tells you stories about his various travels.

"He'll check your blood pressure, blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels and give you a print-out with the results - and it's all free.

"In addition, he says that he'll also test the ladies and encourages couples to come together."

The van will be in front of the council chambers from 10am-4pm on Monday and Tuesday.

Ms Boswell said Rob says to ask him about the "milk story".
