Save our Post Office Public Meeting


NZ Post are planning on downgrading the Grey Lynn Post Office to a Post centre only. This means no more banking facilities and the loss of staff.

Symonds Street Post Office is going to be closed

These plans will have a big impact on local businesses and residents especially the elderly. We think our busy Post Office provides essential services and adds to the vibrancy of our community.

Let NZ Post know your views on these plans. Help save our Post Office

Attend the Public Meeting

Wednesday 8 June at 7pm, Grey Lynn Community Centre

Hosted by Grey Lynn 2030 and the Grey Lynn Business Association

  1. Here in Dunedin we have been trying to save our post office and Kiwibank for the last four weeks. We started a Facebook page and Twitter page overnight as soon as the news broke, and a petition too. A stall has been operating outside our post office nearly every day for the last four weeks at different times to catch different customers. We currently have nearly 2500 signatures. The petition was addressed to NZ POST. People are still signing. Today we did more direct action and held a NZ Post Education Campaign called “We’re going to get NZ Post’s Attention. We’re going to buy a Stamp.” People come and buy a stamp and line up at the post office 1.1km away where all of the 284 customers a day are supposed to now go to. We are trying to show how long the queues will get if our post office goes. We are doing the same again on Monday at our actual post office to show how much support it has from its customers. You could do this for days and days if you wanted. It went well today. We did a poster-drop around all the shops nearby, and gave away flyers outside the post office to promote it. The Mayor wrote a letter to NZ Post offering solutions but this has been ignored. Local MP’s have also approached NZ Post’s CEO, again ignored. Your Mr Fa’Fui, has fobbed us off. We aren’t giving up, and are looking at other things we can do now. Get in touch if you want to know anything else. J Howard, Save Dunedin Metro Post Office and Kiwibank Campaign.
