Real Organic Food Delivered To Your Door No drive is too steep, no steps too many and no address too hidden for our delivery drivers. When you order an Organic Box, we ask you to do so 2 days before delivery, that’s so that we can order your produce direct from our New Zealand growers. When this arrives, it’s repacked and delivered to your home. Ordering is simple, go to our website and choose “Fruit and Veg Boxes” to select a small, standard or large box of fruit, vegetables or a mixture of both. Alternatively you can choose the “Fruit and Veg Self Selection” option and choose exactly what you would like delivered. We also sell milk, cheese, chicken and eggs and just like the fruit and veg, everything is fully certified organic. Delivery in South Wellington is on Thursdays, so order by 10pm Tuesday to
guarantee delivery. Do you need some ideas on what to cook? Just check out our recipe blog, and why not send us your favourite recipe so we can share it with others. For over 6 years Organic Boxes have been providing Wellington with the freshest, 100% certified, organic produce. Organic certification means that the grower takes organic farming seriously and is audited yearly including all of their processes and testing of their soils. This assures you that what you are buying isn’t just good intentions, but guaranteed safe, clean and green. See the best of New Zealand’s harvest at www.organicboxes.co.nz or call us free on 0800 674 269 to discuss booking your Organic Boxes delivery with Justine.
Living the dream
Paul Fredrickson Pharmacist 1976.
Soon after qualifying as a pharmacist in 1978, Paul Fredrickson had a dream of one day owning a pharmacy in the eastern suburbs of Wellington. It wasn’t until 2001 that that dream was finally realised. During that time, Paul worked in a number of different pharmacies in New Zealand and overseas. “I worked in pharmacies with 30 staff, and I worked in pharmacies where I was the only staff!” says Paul. “My plan was always to return to Wellington, and own my own pharmacy putting in place all the great things I had learnt during this period.” Strathmore Park Pharmacy has been a mainstay of the Strathmore Shopping centre since just after World War 2. Paul is just the fourth owner after Don Steptoe who opened the pharmacy after WW 2, Deryk McNamara, Alastair Hurray and now Paul. “I don’t quite know what it is, but this phar-
macy has always had a special feel too it” says Paul. “It’s very much part of the local communities of Strathmore, Seatoun and Miramar”. The big thing for me though, and I know it’s a cliché, are the people. The wonderful people who support our business, and the amazing staff that have assisted me to realise my goals over the years. Our constant challenge is to provide the very best professional pharmacy services to our local community. A dispensing service that due to our size we are able to provide with minimal wait time. Qualified staff on hand at all times to provide advice on medicines, natural health, first aid and beauty options. From all the staff at Strathmore Park Pharmacy – we thank you for your support and look forward to keeping our pharmacy at the forefront of healthcare in the wonderful Eastern suburbs of Wellington.
