In response to recent reports of the Spain Women’s football team leaving their base in Palmerston North during the Women’s World Cup, citing boredom with the city, the Mayor of Palmerston North has dusted off the old adage that the city may be perceived as boring but remains a great place to raise a family.

The news of the Spanish team’s early departure from Palmy due to boredom has garnered mixed reactions from the city’s residents. While some are surprised that the city’s lack of excitement has become a talking point on the international stage, others are more understanding of the athletes’ point of view.
