Petrol sta­tion re­born

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

The newly made over Z Mata­mata sta­tion had an of­fi­cial site open­ing on De­cem­ber 20 to mark a new be­gin­ning. Z re­tailer of this site Sel­wyn Cook, along with his wife Shirley, the busi­ness owner, were there to thank ev­ery­one for com­ing along and to cut the rib­bon.

‘‘This is a pretty spe­cial day, a sun­rise let­ter day – and that let­ter is the let­ter Z. The Z sig­ni­fies that this is now a truly New Zealand com­pany. We don’t just top up ve­hi­cles here but also the New Zealand su­per­annu- ation fund which cer­tainly ben­e­fits all of New Zealand. Z is a New Zealand-owned com­pany, re­tain­ing prof­its for New Zealand and ben­e­fit­ing all of New Zealand. Three thou­sand new jobs have been cre­ated for this re­brand­ing project alone,’’ Mr Cook said.

‘‘While Z is for New Zealand we be­lieve to­day Z is re­ally for Mata­mata. We are proud to be part of this com­mu­nity. Our team here have nom­i­nated four wor­thy causes out of the so many that help sup­port this town. We have made a com­mit­ment to re­turn the first $5000 in tak­ings back to this com­mu­nity. From to­day on for the next month, each time a cus­tomer makes a pur­chase they will be given one of these vot­ing to­kens which our cus­tomers, rep­re­sent­ing this com­mu­nity, will then use to choose how best to di­vide up this money.’’

The four groups are the Com­mu­nity Health Shut­tle, the Mata­mata Vol­un­teer Fire Bri­gade, St John Mata­mata and Pohlen Hos­pi­tal.
