Jabiru Mens Shed chairperson James Kepui said, Its more than just a place to hang out; its a place to reconnect, share and contribute to your community. Residents along the northern NT coast are reminded to protect themselves from mosquito bites, with salt marsh mosquito numbers expected to drastically increase from 16 October following heavy rainfall. The Top End Health Service Director of Medical Entomology, Nina Kurucz, advised that heavy rainfall and high tides will trigger extensive mosquito breeding in coastal areas until the monsoonal rain floods their breeding sites. We expect mosquito numbers to remain high for at least two weeks due to the high humidity, with further mosquito hatches triggered by additional rain or the next high tides in mid-October, Ms Kurucz said. Salt marsh mosquitoes can transmit the Ross River virus. While the high risk period for the virus is from December to March, the disease can be contracted all year round. Everyone should take the appropriate measures to protect themselves. PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST MOSQUITOES The movie Nowhere Girls, which was filmed in Warruwi last year, was premiered for the first time in the community to watch and enjoy. The Nowhere Girls and the Flying Crystal was screened at Warruwi School together with the three Bedtime Stories produced with ICTV. Nowhere Girls 2 will be accessible on Mawng Ngaralk soon after the screening. Thanks to Warruwi School and West Arnhem Regional Councils Youth, Sport and Recreation team for organising the screening. FILM PREMIERED IN WARRUWI The Warruwi community watching the film premiere of 'Nowhere Girls'.
