Mail lifeline' cuts
Rural delivery: Central Southland farmer Des Forde happily
collecting his morning mail, which has been delivered to his gate
for more than 80 years. But he has concerns about the future, with
NZ Post looking at a reduction in the service.
What do you think of the proposed NZ Post Mail delivery cuts
from six days a week to three?
Do you think it is just a sign of the times?
Will it affect you, especially if you have a rural address?
Will you be making submission against the proposal?
Let us know at: email@example.com
Southern rural communi-
ties are lamenting the
possible loss of mail deliv-
ery services, with some
saying it's just another blow
for the farming sector.
NZ Post has suggested
cutting mail delivery days
from six to three and it's got
former Rural Women New
Zealand (RWNZ) national
president Jeanette McIn-
tyre, of Gore, worried.
''From a rural point of view,
it's an essential lifeline,''
''I'd hate to see it stop.
''It's really putting a brake
on life as we know it.
''It's part of living in the
rural area -- communication
is just so important -- we
need good phone lines, we
need good broadband and
we need to have our mail
''It's essential, it's not a
luxury, and it's a daily
lifeline for older farmers.''
Urban businesses expected
to get their mail delivered
every day, and farming
businesses in rural areas
deserved to get the same,
Central Southland farmer
Des Forde, who has lived on
the same farm for 84 years,
said he was also concerned.
''I'm not very happy about
this. The mail has always
come to the gate every day.
''The daily delivery of the
paper is the most important
''I'm not sure how that's
going to be affected -- unless
they're going to charge us
He was also concerned at
the potential loss of dis-
count, which companies
offered their clients if
accounts were paid on time.
''With the three day deliv-
ery, we could miss out on
that 10 per cent discount,
unless companies change
the dates that they send out
Waikaka farmer Hugh
Gardyne said NZ Post
would definitely get a
negative reaction to the cuts
from rural people.
''We don't expect to be
treated as another class of
citizen, getting mailed
''I wouldn't want to see the
service reduced below five
But Riverton farmer
Vaughan Templeton said
the people he was most
concerned about were the
rural delivery contractors.
He also acknowledged it
was a sign of the times.
''Mail volumes are going
down and people need to
stop whingeing and get on
''There's always resistance

RWNZ have written to
members, asking them to
