Grand Opening!

Auckland Mayor Phil Goff and Peggy Bourne officially opened the Possum Bourne Retirement Village in front of more than 300 guests at one of the biggest parties of the year.

Possum’s family joined residents of the brand-new village at the celebration to mark its opening and thank all the builders and subcontractors who built it.

A karakia by Ngati Tamaoho kaumatua Dennis Kirkwood and Hero Potini marked the start of the evening, and three Subaru rally cars stood guard at the entrance as a tribute to Possum.

Peggy Bourne said she was sure her late husband would have been honoured by the naming.

“Possum was born and raised in Pukekohe and he loved the place. Possum was very shy – believe it or not – and he might have been a little bit embarrassed but very honoured. I think all you guys are going to love living here. To come here and see how wonderful it is here has been incredible.’’

Possum Bourne was Australasia’s most successful rally driver, winning the Australian Rally Championship seven times and the Asia Pacific Championship three times. He died in 2003 after his car was struck by another competitor while he was preparing for a race.
