Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Nam­ing As­cot Park’s ar­ti­fi­cial turf af­ter its cham­pion Bernie Wood has been sup­ported unan­i­mously by Porirua’s city coun­cil­lors.

Coun­cil­lor Denys Latham spear­headed the no­tice of mo­tion to sup­port nam­ing the turf The Bernie Wood Sports Field in hon­our of Mr Wood, who died of can­cer in April.

Mr Wood was the driv­ing force be­hind the $1.6 mil­lion turf. Mr Wood’s fam­ily also sup­ports the name. A de­ci­sion on the name is likely to be made nearer to the turf’s com­ple­tion this sum­mer.
