Franklin Service Hero Sharon England Top Notch Engraving, Pukekohe



Community-minded Sharon England and her family have been running Top Notch Engraving and Book Exchange at 28 King Street in Pukekohe for the past four and a half years. They supply local schools, sports clubs and social groups with trophies and engravings, sell corporate gifts and support community initiatives whenever possible, besides continuing with the book exchange.
Top Notch has been a favourite for 30 years and book lovers still turn up regularly to swap their books for a new one. The Englands enjoy being much more than just a shop and some of their community projects include collecting old prescription glasses for the Fred Hollows Foundation, supporting Middlemore Foundation’s Jammies in June and selling tickets and calendars to help the fundraising for John Connolly.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
