League fan dies
Ponsonby Ponies league club life member Bruce Palmer passed away last Friday.
The 72-year-old Pt Chevalier resident, who was suffering from terminal lung cancer, had hoped to attend the club’s centenary celebrations, starting tonight.
Bruce first played for the club in 1947 after immigrating from the Cook Islands and held various roles at the club over the years, including club captain.
He was farewelled at the Pt Chevalier RSA on Wednesday.
