Vote for us!

We're thrilled to be part of Z Good in the Hood this year.

Through Good in the Hood, each of Z’s service stations will choose four different community groups to support, giving away a total of $4,000 at every site.

Customers who shop in store are given an orange token to pop in one of the four boxes, voting for their favourite local group. The money is split between all participating groups based on the number of votes each receives.

In addition to the $4,000 every Z service station has an additional $1000 to be used by local retailers throughout the year to support other neighbourhood initiatives.

To vote for us, simply drop your orange token into our slot next time you fill up at Z Tawa!

Promo ends 24 October 2022.

Parking on Yellow Lines & Footpaths

A friendly reminder to not park on broken yellow lines, or on footpaths.

Police have received complaints of vehicles parking on broken yellow lines in Tawa.

Yellow lines are placed for safety reasons. If vehicles are found to be parking on yellow lines, owners of offending vehicles will be contacted and reminded of the laws.

Likewise, it is against WCC bylaws that vehicles park with any wheels on a footpath.

Footpaths need to be completely clear to allow safe passage by those using the foot path.

Please help to keep footpaths accessible by finding a safer place to park. This may mean parking on an alternative street or using off-street carparks - especially in some of the tighter streets we have in Tawa.
