Every opportunity – the mayor of New Plymouth Peter Tennent’s automated out of office response:

GREETINGS – I hope your new year is going well!

There’s no way I would be in the office – this is the place judged the best place to live in New Zealand (2008 – North & South, ACP Magazines) and the best place to live in the world (2008 – Liveable Community Awards). Of course I’m not in the office!

I’m probably out enjoying a good coffee in one of the town’s many cafe’s…… strolling the award winning coastal walkway…… catching a wave at one of our blue flag accredited beaches….. enjoying the entertainment at the TSB Bank Festival of Lights…… catching a world class show at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands…… the cricket at Pukekura Park (judged one of the world’s top six cricket venues)….. the Yachting at Ngamotu Beach….. one of the beach carnivals…… the latest exhibition at Govett Brewster Art Gallery or Puke Ariki…… chasing a golf ball around one of our magnificent international courses….. training for one of our round mountain cycle challenges….. taking a leisurely jog……. enjoying a “retail fix”…… tramping Mt Taranaki…… taking in the wonders of the glorious parks……. or relaxing with good friends, family, or visitors – because that’s what we do in Taranaki!

But – I also check my emails pretty regularly.

So, when it gets cloudy (not very often in Taranaki), or when the skin needs a break from the sun (far more often in Taranaki), I’ll respond to your email.

I’m very happy to take calls though – my mobile: +64 (21) ………

Keep the passion!

Kind regards



Judged the best place to live in New Zealand and now the WORLD!

You have to really admire him. Although it is a bit long, he doesn’t waste any opportunity at all. Can you say the same about your business?
