Last chance to save post office
It’s the last chance saloon for those wanting to step up and help keep Te Puke’s Post Shop where it is.
This month, Te Puke Centre Working Group launched a Pledgeme page with the goal of raising $50,000 to become the operator of postal and bill-paying services in Te Puke.
The business would support an information and visitor centre and would establish a professional, neutral and central shared space supporting the community, visitors and local industries.
On Tuesday, the group had received $40,000 worth of pledges.
“We are so close, it’s so exciting. We just need a couple of big ones to get us over the line,” says working group chairwoman Karen Summerhays. “This is now a final call to action.” Around 200 people have already made pledges. The final date for pledges to be made is December 5 at 5pm.
Go to www.pledgeme.co.nz under Save the Te Puke Post Office or go to the Te Puke Times office, Anann Bar, National MPS’ office or Te Puke Stihl Shop to leave a pledge form.
Pledges will only be called in if the target amount is reached.
