Loud mes­sage for PostShop meet­ing

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

New Zealand Post will host two pub­lic meet­ings later this month to dis­cuss the fu­ture of Mana PostShop.

Mana MP Kris Faafoi and Porirua mayor Nick Leggett met with se­nior man­age­ment of New Zealand Post last month.

‘‘ At that meet­ing we were as­sured they want to main­tain ser­vices [at the Mana PostShop] but they re­it­er­ated the company’s in­ten­tion to find new, suit­able premises,’’ Faafoi said.

‘‘ New Zealand Post has con­ceded that it could have en­gaged with the com­mu­nity much bet­ter in this mat­ter and they have agreed to my re­quest to come and speak to the com­mu­nity di­rectly.

‘‘It will be their op­por­tu­nity to out­line their plans and lis­ten to the opin­ions of lo­cals.’’

Faafoi said more than 1000 res­i­dents re­sponded to a survey he con­ducted in June. Peo­ple wanted the PostShop ser­vices, which could be down­scaled, to re­main as they are, he said.

‘‘I would en­cour­age ev­ery­one who replied to the survey or who have strong feel­ings about re­tain- ing core ser­vices in the com­mu­nity to at­tend,’’ Faafoi said. ‘‘The more voices we have, the louder our mes­sage will be.’’
