Rural Women New Zealand acknowledges changes to NZ Post rural delivery service

Rural Women New Zealand acknowledges the announcement from NZ Post (10 September 2015) that rural delivery services are changing from six to five days a week for some rural communities.

After November, about six percent of NZ Post rural delivery customers will move from six to five day delivery (Monday to Friday) in some rural areas near Auckland, Wellington, Whanganui, Rotorua, Havelock, Oamaru, Dunedin and Invercargill.

Rural Women New Zealand believes it is important for the five day a week rural delivery service to remain unchanged in rural areas.

National President Wendy McGowan says,"Rural delivery contractors provide a lifeline, delivering mail, supplies, spare parts, animal health remedies, medicines, and courier parcels.

"The five day delivery and pick up service ensures people are able to run their farming enterprises and other rural businesses effectively, even from remote locations. These businesses breathe life into rural communities, as demonstrated through our Enterprising Rural Women Awards."

In many rural areas there is still limited or no mobile phone coverage or broadband connections, "It is important to continue the five day delivery service for rural communities to remain connected," says Ms McGowan.
