The name Wes Armstrong will forever be linked with Wellington’s Basin Reserve.
The 88 year-old died last week and his life will be celebrated with a service at the Poneke Rugby Club on Tuesday.
Armstrong spent 22 years tending his beloved Basin Reserve wicket and in an era where groundsmen ruled the roost, he was very much his own boss.

New Zealand's first Anne Frank memorial unveiled in Wellington

In a grass clearing overlooking Wellington a memorial in the form of three steel chairs has been installed.
Unlike a typical memorial consisting of a park bench and a plaque with an idyllic view of the city, the chairs engage in simple object theatre, designer Matthijs Siljee​ said.
“If new visitors were to walk up the path and their eye level comes level with the grass, they will all of a sudden think ‘hey someone has left some chairs behind.' It is in that unassuming way that the memorial will introduce itself to the visitors,” Siljee said.
Located in Ellice Park in Mt Victoria, the memorial is the first of its kind in New Zealand, commemorating Anne Frank and the 1.5 million children who were killed during the holocaust.
The layout represents discrimination and prejudice, the chairman of Anne Frank Projects and the driver behind the project, Boyd Klap​ said.

Has anybody got any ideas for a caption?

"Thanks to a wonderful husband who took me there and a low tide, Pāuatahanui was a bird photographer's dream this afternoon! Masses of kingfishers who were either sitting on bits of driftwood or logs, in between catching little crabs, a pile of shags who were in a very flappy mood and were constantly splashing about in the water, a pair of Caspian terns who didn't seem to be getting on too well, a blue heron who was getting annoyed by a seagull who was swooping over him. So much to see and photograph! It helped wearing some wellies so I could wade in to get some closer shots."
