2017 / 2018 Membership is now open. (Ponsonby Bowling Club Inc.)

Bernie Connolly from Ponsonby Bowling Club

The 2017 / 2018 Bowling season has now commenced, so come along and join the Ponsonby Bowling Club, and keep the tradition of lawn bowls going.
We have a great clubroom, with both a natural green and an all weather green, so as long as the rain stays away, you can play lawn bowls.

Alternately, the next season of Mates In Bowls starts in November, so grab a couple of friends and enter a team (3 players) and enjoy the most social version of lawn bowls. More details are on our web site. (www.ponsonbybowls.nz)

Anzac Day: War letters to home

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

This Sunday marks the 106-year anniversary of the first landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers at Anzac Cove on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

For many of the 16000 soldiers, April 25, 1915 marked their first day of combat.

And by that night, 2000 had been killed or maimed.

We remember our Auckland veterans and fallen soldiers with their letters to friends and loved ones back home.

Here is a letter from Michael Menzies, a prisoner of war in Japan, to his friend Norm Ryder:


Dear Norm,

Still existing and anticipating a speedy reunion.

Appreciate your kind thoughts and wishes.

I often have the Queen St blues and a perpetual Waitemata thirst and occasionally a nicotine fit.

Received three of your letters and am anxiously
awaiting for more.

Your Affectionate Pal
