North Otago A & P Show 2018

Friday, 23rd – Saturday 24th February

Network Waitaki’s winning display at the 2018 North Otago A&P Show Highlighted the Dangers of Trees Around Electricity Lines.

Network Waitaki was the proud winner of the 2018 North Otago A & P Show Trade Exhibition Challenge Trophy for their stunning visual display erected to highlight the dangers of trees close to power lines. As beautiful and useful as trees are when they come into close-proximity to power lines it causes a lot of problems as well as being an issue to people and animals safety. Staff on site were passionate about explaining the dangers surrounding trees in and around power lines and were pleased with the responses from the public to Network Waitaki’s message.
