Westpac Pukekohe Branch officially opened
The new Westpac Branch in Pukekohe is now officially open for business.
The new purpose-built branch is located at 108 King Street and took ten weeks to fit out. It features an open plan design with Smart ATMs and cash exchange with a 24hr access lobby.
Victoria Cross holder and local Pukekohe resident, Willie Apiata, led the formalities at the ceremony on Wednesday 25 October, which was attended by around 60 guests from the community.
Mr Apiata also addressed attendees about the qualities that make a good leader, and spoke of his recent trip to the Invictus Games in Toronto, where he was reunited with Prince Harry.

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.
