About 50 ''absolutely competitive'' St John cadets patched up, resuscitated and comforted patients at the Alexandra Holiday Park yesterday during the St John Youth area competition.

St John District Youth manager Lynne Rae said children aged 9 to 18 had come from all over Central Otago, including Wanaka and Queenstown, for the competition.

The top scorers compete in the South Island competition in Kaiapoi next month.

''These kids are all really competitive ... absolutely competitive.''

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
