New station for St John planned
In Palmerston North St John is managed by a local area committee. This committee is made up of local business and professional people. Retired farmers, professional business owners, an accountant, a person working in the education sector, a senior medic with the NZ Defence Force and other longstanding St John members.
This committee are all volunteers giving their time and extensive knowledge to the overall management of the organisation in the city.
The committee is working toward the establishment of a second ambulance station in the southern quadrant of the city to provide quicker ambulance response times for that sector of Palmerston North. Currently the main station is in Tremaine Ave opposite the intersection with Heretaunga St.
Fundraising for this new 24/7 facility will start shortly.
In the meantime support to St John can be made by supporting the St John Op Shop at 304 Broadway or calling at the office on the corner of Linton and Church streets.
Remember, St John is here for life.
