We Say, You Say: Banks

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Hauraki,

What do you think about having no bank in Coromandel Town?

BNZ announced it will close 38 of its branches nationwide, with shutdowns beginning in April 2021. With the bank closure looming for Coromandel Town residents, elderly are left feeling anxious and unsure of how to adapt.

Hi Hauraki,

What do you think about having no bank in Coromandel Town?

BNZ announced it will close 38 of its branches nationwide, with shutdowns beginning in April 2021. With the bank closure looming for Coromandel Town residents, elderly are left feeling anxious and unsure of how to adapt.

Residents who require face to face services are now forced to go to Thames or Whitianga, with many angry at the renegation of the promise for these rural branches to stay open until 2022.

Hi Neighbours,

What are some fun things to do that'll attract New Zealanders to your corner of the Coromandel?

Officials estimate that the Coromandel lost $50 million dollars from a non-existent tourism industry during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The Repco Beach Hop classic car festival is expected to pump $10 million into the region, with 12,500 entrants and 100,000 car fanatics expected to travel to Coromandel on November 25.

The five day festival was originally planned for March, but event organisers postponed until November due to Covid-19.
