Mapua & Districts Community Directory Update

The Mapua & Districts Community Directory is a handy directory of businesses and residential listings in your local area.

You can always pick up the latest printed copy at the Upper Moutere General Store, Mapua Country Store, Mapua Library, or First Class Accounts. The business listings can also be viewed online at http://mapua.co.nz/

Why not check out the latest copy and see if your details are still correct?

If your details have changed, or you are new to the area and would like to add your information to the residential listings, or you know of somebody who is still listed but definitely no longer lives in the area, please help keeping the listings up-to-date by sending a note to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (or by using the update request form at the back of the printed directory).

The listings are not updated automatically, so the directory relies on the community to advise the MDBA (Mapua & Districts Business Association) of any changes - your help is much appreciated.
