Sad news - Peter Newman

Posted by Helen Morgan

With much sadness the Newman family advises that Peter passed away on 12 April 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer aged 72. 

A celebration of Peter’s life will be held at 1pm Saturday 16th April at the Geoffrey T Sowman Funeral Chapel, cnr Hutcheson and Parker Sts, Blenheim to be followed by a private cremation. 

Messages of condolence can be forwarded to:-

glen.newman@clear.net.nz or to the Newman Family, 5 Natalie Pl, Blenheim 

For anyone travelling from the North Island to attend Peter’s service, we recommend checking flight availability through Sounds Air into either Blenheim or Picton (Koromiko). We will endeavour to assist wherever possible with organising transfers to and from the airport or ferry terminal in Picton. If travelling by ferry on Saturday, the only viable option is the Bluebridge sailing at 8am. This arrives in Picton at 11.30am which will allow time to get to Blenheim.  Members of the Kaituna / Blenheim Rifle Club will also help with transportation requirements - contact Malcolm Dodson 027 652 2640.

Please contact Glen on either 04 4776808 or 027 4587679 if you would like any assistance. 

Warm regards 

Glen Newman

Peter Newman
