Following the report (September News Page) we have received an online comment from Kerry Needham who was in the NTC in Peter’s early days.
I am saddened to read this news of Peter’s passing. I was about 16 when I joined the NTC and Peter led my first trip – a two day slog uphill in the Kaweka Ranges, in constant rain I seem to recall… Still, I seemed to catch the bug and returned for more, often rattling along in the Combi, to and from expeditions, in the dark of pre-dawn and post dusk. Peter was later my neighbour in Main Street when I lived in the cottage on the corner for a time. He was always generous with his time, conversation, offers of reading material and offers of help, always with the utmost modesty.
I have fond memories of my time with the club and it has been lovely to read how strongly the club continues. Best wishes.
