Please, next year, do not forget to send a reporter to Buckland Service. I guarantee you and Post readers will not be disappointed.
Philip Hickling, Pukekohe
Editors note: We would have loved to have attended every ANZAC service in the community, but unfortunately, it is just not possible. We were lucky enough to have Ngaire, Darryl and Shiona, volunteer to take photos for us at the Waiuku ANZAC service, while Yana covered the Pukekohe service, and myself at both Tuakau and Pokeno. I also heard that the Awhitu one was quite spectacular, as well as the service at Bombay. We would be most appreciative of those who could assist us if we cannot make the services held in your area. Please feel free to contact us closer to the time if interested. Warm Regards, Emma Sharplin

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.
