Harvest over, the National Ploughing Championships coming up, time to take the foot off the pedal for a bit of rest and relaxation but pencilling in an ‘NCT’ for yourself during quieter times is important too.

Did you ever see an Irish Heart Foundation (IHF) lorry at an agricultural event or near a shopping centre offering free heart health checks but you said, ‘Ah, no, I won’t bother.’?
