Due to our geographic location the shoulder seasons have become much longer. In the winter months the Mercury Bay South area is easily cut-off and isolated during weather events and assistance is strictly localised. Having St John on call will support our locals in a variety of ways – from personal needs to the support of businesses’ and the staff that travel distances to keep our local economy intact.
