Central Leader - - News -

The San­dring­ham com­mu­nity came out to sup­port its Post Shop at a pub­lic meet­ing call­ing for its key ser­vices to be re­tained.

More than 50 peo­ple at­tended the meet­ing on April 16 in an ef­fort to stop New Zealand Post from tak­ing away Ki­wiBank, mo­tor ve­hi­cle and other ser­vices at the shop. Owner Chan­der Satija was told the ser­vices would be re­moved from July 25.

San­dring­ham Com­mu­nity Cen­tre chair­man Lin­gappa Kal­burgi said the com­mu­nity and lo­cal busi­nesses had ral­lied be­hind Mr Satija on the is­sue.

Auck­land city coun­cil­lor Glenda Fryer also at­tended the meet­ing and ques­tioned why the ser­vices would be re­moved when the shop was do­ing well.

She says the meet­ing has re­quested that New Zealand Post re­verse its de­ci­sion and keep the ser­vices open.

New Zealand Post head of sales and ser­vice de­liv­ery Scott Pol­lard says it will con­sider the ques­tions put to it by the meet­ing be­fore giv­ing a re­sponse.

He says the Bal­moral Post Shop will also have sim­i­lar ser­vices re­moved.

Both shops have been of­fered post cen­tre con­tracts.
