Checking in with the Thames-Coromandel district

From Summer Times, 9:10 am on 3 January 2024

The Thames-Coromandel area has had a devastating 2023 with regular storms closing roads and destroying property.

But with the new and improved State Highway 25A opened days before Christmas, there are decent signs of activity - particularly for the town of Tairua - in the region.

Len Salt is the mayor of the Thames-Coromandel district.
