St John Thames is a rural station supporting a vast and varied population within the Waikato/Coromandel. Here in the sunny Coromandel region we have been providing services since 1932, starting with the Thames ambulance division for men. Since then our services, the need for our services, and volunteer numbers have grown substantially.
