We asked, listened, and collaborated directly with farmers in the making of this gear. We tested and re-tested in on-farm environments. We re-engineered what farming workwear can be with your needs front of mind.

We brought our decades of experience creating world-class performance gear. Add to that a legacy of Kiwi innovation, a challenger spirit and a practical attitude that’s been part of Line 7 since we started back in 1963.

Every detail has been reviewed and refined – without overlooking the obvious. Breathable, flexible, functional and comfortable, while still being supremely durable and waterproof. Made to fit farmers of all shapes and sizes, with a dedicated range for women. Built to last, and last a bit longer still, with an included repair kit that means you can fix it up quickly yourself.

Now take it out there, try it on and put it to the test. Wear it out and wear it again. We’re pretty damn confident you won’t be disappointed

See a crashed car being dissected by firefighters, talk to local road safety heroes and learn more about the devastating impact of vehicle crashes – and how you can avoid them – at a Road Safety Week event this weekend.

Road Safety Week is on now and to draw attention to the importance of staying safe on our roads we’re holding a Road Safety Day this Saturday (May 14) on Northcroft Domain, with local staff and demonstrations from emergency services to highlight the devastating impact of road crashes.

The event is a collaboration between Taupō District Council and road safety partner Brake, a national road safety charity that works to prevent road deaths and injuries and support people bereaved and injured in accidents across New Zealand.

Key partners participating include St John, Taupō Police, the Greenlea rescue helicopter and Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ).

Displays will include a car from Waka Kotahi which illustrates collision impact, a car being ‘dissected’ by FENZ staff then St John staff illustrating how they free occupants in an accident, displays, information and more.

This week has also featured radio interviews with key staff of these services, highlighting what they see and experience daily across our district. Key messages around road safety including speed, fatigue and driving to the conditions are all discussed and will be part of the event this weekend.

Council road safety coordinator Sarah Wraight is excited for the upcoming event.

“Come along and chat with our local road safety heroes. Bring the family, have a free sausage and kids can see some of our emergency vehicles and the work they do.

“Road safety is everyone’s responsibility so let’s keep each other safer on our roads, particularly as we get into the dangers of winter driving over the coming months.”

The Road Safety Week event is on at Northcroft Domain 10am to 1pm this Saturday and it’s free to attend.

New sports facility on the way for Tūrangi

Darren Petry from Taupo District Council

Construction of a new sports facility in Tūrangi is scheduled to get underway in the coming months.

Construction of a new sports facility in Tūrangi is scheduled to get underway in the coming months.

The new facility, a partnership between Ngāti Tūrangitukua and Taupō District Council, will include a main hall, changing rooms and a kitchen, and will be built at Tūrangitukua Park in Tūrangi.

Some $1.7 million was set aside for the project in Taupō District Council’s 2021 annual plan. In February 2022, $1.5 million of unbudgeted expenditure was approved by Council to cover the increased costs of construction since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, and with a further $300,000 made available via a BayTrust grant, the total budget for the project is now $3.5 million.

A steering group, including representatives from Ngāti Tūrangitukua and the Tūrangi Tongariro Community Board, is overseeing the project, and a construction contractor has been appointed.

Ngāti Tūrangitukua kaumātua Jeff Bennett said he was pleased iwi was able to partner with council to make the project happen.

“We’ve been without a sports facility in Tūrangi for generations,” Mr Bennett said, “so it is great to see that this has finally been addressed and our community will have a place where we can host events and visiting teams in the manner that we would like to. I have no doubt that this facility is going to grow into an essential part of our community, and I’d like to thank Mayor David and his team for hearing us and helping to make this a reality.”

Project manager Pete Bradshaw said that it was great to see the project getting underway.

“This is going to be a great asset for the town. Many people in Tūrangi have wanted a purpose-built facility in the town and Tūrangitukua Park is an ideal location. Having a permanent facility like this will better cater to the sports teams that use the park and will mean Turangi can host visiting sports teams, provide shelter in poor weather as well as creating a flexible indoor space for various community groups.

“We’ve been working closely with Ngāti Tūrangitukua on this project, particularly around the design, and it’s fantastic that as landowners they have very generously allowed us to use this space.

"We have appointed Livingstone Building as the main contractor and they are looking forward to working on the project and engaging with the Turangi community to deliver a really first class facility.”

Site preparation is due to start on 16 May.
