      • It is with deep sadness that we advise of the sudden passing of Club Legend and Life Member  Denis "Boots" Fisher at his home in Island Bay last night. The phrase " A Good Club Man" is often bandied about but for the last 50 odd years it probably applied to Boots more than any other at this club.

      • Karori Cricket Club
      • he death occurred in Wellington on 27 April of Roy Atkin, aged 93, the father to Bill, and grandfather of Matt. Roy was elected a Life Member of Karori Cricket Club, and of the Karori Cricket Foundation at the AGM held in 2010. He showed considerable interest in the fortunes of Karori cricket through the years, and used to come with son Bill to matches played by the Pearce Cup and Hazlett Trophy teams. In the latter years, Roy’s eye-sight let him down and so he relied on Bill to talk him through the match. He used to come to the Clubhouse for a beer and a chat.

    • On the passing of Ben Hana
      • 17 Jan 2012
      • Downstage Theatre
      • On 15 Jan our Courtenay Pl neighbour Ben Hana, more commonly known as Blanket Man or Brother, passed away at Wellington Hospital. In the days since an impromptu ‘shrine’ has appeared on the wall of the ANZ building where Ben was most commonly seen over the last few years. The shrine, like Ben, is destined to become controversial. Simultaneously creative and destructive, as it spreads over the faux-grecian façade of the bank questions and conflicts will arise as to whether it should be left alone, or washed clean. A fitting tribute, and one that would’ve no doubt amused the man himself.

      • Eye of the Fish
      • Since this is a blog devoted to the city of Wellington and its sense of place I can’t imagine that we could not mention his death. He was a permanent fixture of the streets of Wellington and was a bit of the spirit that, for me at least (and clearly others), made this city the interesting place it is to be.

      • 5 Aug 2011
      • Oriental Rongotai Football Club
      • Don Bond was an old-school public servant who had four great loves in his life - his family, friends, rugby club and work, which culminated in his job as director of immigration during the Muldoon and Lange years of the 1980s. Former immigration minister Aussie Malcolm numbered himself among Bondy's legion of fans. On learning of the death of his former director from respiratory and assorted ailments this week, Mr Malcolm recalled the true-blue Wellingtonian as self-effacing and a person who drew no attention to himself.
