The South Post Office has become a Broken Hill institution over the years, with Narrelle and Randy Meatheringham this morning celebrating their twentieth anniversary at the business.

In September 2002, Mr and Mrs Meatheringham embarked, “on their biggest adventure and stepped outside their comfort zone,” according to their daughter, Bree Conway.

“They opened the doors for the first time as small business owners with a business plan of five to eight years.”

It’s safe to say that reaching 20 years in business is a significant achievement for any business owner, let alone reaching this milestone after the challenges that have beset the globe over the last two and a half years.

“As with any business you need to have an open mind and good conscious to face challenges,” says Mrs Conway.


Mr and Mrs Meatheringham’s attitude towards customer service standards, community involvement, business engagement, and their positive approach overall to their business has ensured the South Post Office had stood the test of time. The business has won many awards in the over the years, which is testament to the hard work and dedication the couple have given to the business.

In celebration of Mr and Mrs Meatheringham’s 20 years in business, Mrs Conway invites the community to pop into the post office today.

“It’s on from 10am to 12pm today for a celebration,” she says. “All customers are welcome to come and congratulate them on their milestone where tea, coffee and a small variety of cakes and sandwiches will be provided.”

This celebration is not only in recognition of Mr and Mrs Meatheringham’s hard work and dedication over the years.

“It’s also an opportunity to thank our customers for their continued support and friendship and promise to keep providing you with the best service, knowledge and products Australia Post has to offer,” Mrs Conway said.

Congratulations, Randy and Narrelle, this is certainly an achievement worth celebrating this morning.
