The Post Newspaper experienced a devastating burglary on Friday 7 September 2018. Unfortunately this means that we are unable to publish a paper for Tuesday 11 September. This is the first time in 26 years that we have been unable to publish due to circumstances beyond our control.
We have attempted to contact all of our clients to advise them of what has taken place. Our office will also be closed for the next few days, we are however available on mobile and email, details below.
Police are investigating the incident. If you have any information that could assist, please contact the Pukekohe Police on 09 237 1700 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
As a team we are gutted that this setback has not enabled us to be the voice of our community this week, however we are working extremely hard to bring out a paper next week as per normal.
The response from the community has been overwhelming, and we thank you for your messages of support, well-wishes, and offers of supplies.
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.
