    We attended a community meeting in Ruatoria this week where members of the public discussed what they could do to support the campaign to keep Westpac Ruatoria open after a proposed closure was announced. People spoke with great feeling on the importance of having face-to-face contact when discussing financial matters, particularly the elderly. There is also the problem of limited internet access in the community. The campaign to challenge the proposed closure is in full swing including lobbying of politicians, rallies and media.
