SWDC will no longer accept cheques from 30 June 2021

Most banks are phasing out cheques as a means of payment.  Our bank has informed us they will stop accepting cheques on 30 June 2021, meaning we will not be able to accept this as a form of payment. 

Please note that the last day for mailing in cheques is 31 May 2021.

We want to ensure that this transition to mobile or online payment methods happens seamlessly.

Other ways to pay include direct debit, internet banking; or paying by EFTPOS or cash at our local offices and services centres in Featherston, Greytown and Martinborough Libraries.

If you would like help learning how to use internet or mobile banking, consider a workshop with Digital Seniors, a trust set up in the Wairarapa to support seniors with technology.

They have the following weekly sessions:

  • Greytown Library on Tuesdays from 1:30 till 3:30
  • Featherston Union Church on Thursdays from 1:30 till 3:30
  • Martinborough St Andrews’ Church on Thursdays from 9:30 till 11:30

Alternatively they can be reached at 0800 373 646 or online at digitalseniors.co.nz/seniors/
