Written by BMG Media.

The all new 10th Generation 2016 Honda Civic is almost here at the Achilles Ave Showroom. This is big news, it is a huge leap in styling for this iconic car that has been making waves around the globe as it is launched.

Peter Ransby. 1946 - 2015. His legacy at the Bowater Motor Group.

Written by Media Manager.

Peter RansbyPeter Ransby and Alan Large sharing a story and a laugh at Bowater Honda. Not an unusual sight on any given morning at 10am, all visitors to the couch welcomed and appreciated. Click to enlarge.

A life well lived, echoing with an loud and infectious laugh, the constant of a love of friends and family, the pride in a garden that fed many a family, a cheeky smile to greet those that walked through the door, and an honest and loyal work ethic is certainly a life well worth celebrating.
This was just a part of the life of Peter Ransby. A man that has been such a vibrant part of the Bowater Motor Group for many, many decades, spanning a time of over 45 years.

Yesterday, at a packed Marsden House, family, friends, colleagues and loved ones all came together to send Peter off in a manner befitting a man so loved, respected and widely regarded.

After a short and valiant fight right up until the very end, sadly Peter Ransby lost his struggle the morning of September 29th at Nelson Hospital and passed on, surrounded by his family and loved ones.

Peter has been such a large part of the success of the Bowater Motor Group for generations, and by generations we mean that quite literally. Peter has worked alongside all 4 of the generations of the Bowater family over the many decades he has been a valued part of the company - working in a wide variety of different roles, in different departments from the workshop through to the showroom floor.

In the days following the sad news of his passing those in many of the Bowater Motor Group businesses across the region rallied together to share cherished memories of Peter. Many have commented on our Facebook post with some very kind thoughts, and flowers have arrived. A flood of humourous stories has been shared at the Bowater Honda showroom in Achilles Ave by colleagues and customers past and present, over a date scone and a cup of tea or two, as we all came to grips with the loss of such a respected and appreciated colleague, contributer, mentor and friend. A new kind of sound has been ringing out in the showroom at Bowater Honda over the last couple of days - the sound of friends and family coming together to celebrate a life well lived.
