Tradies' calendar call-up
THERE has long been a link - one that's been noticed by many women - between tradesmen and toned, tanned and often shirtless bodies.
This observation is not a matter of judgment or critique; far more a thing of appreciation and respect.
Now, thanks to an initiative from the Warwick Daily News, tradesmen will be able to show their bare chests with pride in a 2012-13 calendar of Warwick's hottest workmen - and women will be free to ogle without limit.
For carpenter Ben Hall, posing sans shirt took a bit of encouragement.
"I've been a tradesman for about five years and I've never even considered this before," he said.
"I do love (my line of work). It's fun and it's hands on instead of in the office."
The tradesman, who works for McNally Constructions, said while he was still considering posing for the calendar, he would recommend it to his mates.
Workmen are invited to send in their photo and a bit of information to the Daily News as soon as possible to go into the running to feature in the calendar.
About 18 tradesmen are needed and a percentage of all sales will be donated to the Men's Health Organisation.
