CAUSES CRASH

EXTENSIVE DAMAGE: Groom Mahdi Zougub (inset) was seriously injured when this helicopter crashed at Terrace

Downs on Saturday.

PHOTO: GEORGE HEARD ​

THE HELICOPTER involved

in a crash that seriously injured

four people, including a bride

and groom on their wedding day,

suffered a total engine failure.

Wyndon Aviation, the helicopter

company involved, said

in a statement yesterday the

engine lost power shortly after

take-off – causing the Robinson

R44 helicopter to crash.

“Statistically this is a very

rare occurrence,” a spokesman

for the company said.

Investigations into the crash,

which happened on Saturday

at Terrace Downs Resort, near

Rakaia Gorge, have found no reason

for the engine to lose power.

The helicopter company has

met with the close family of

the bride, groom and wedding

photographer involved in the

crash for the first time.

The families have been told

about power loss to the engine

being the cause of the crash.

Lack of

winter

flu a

mystery

• By Susan Sandys

EXPERTS WHO track the

seasonal flu are stunned that a

virus once detected thousands

of times each year has all but

vanished.

There have been just three laboratory

confirmed flu cases this

year in New Zealand, and all have

been in MIQ. The lack of cases

is part of a global trend, which is

puzzling scientists.

University of Otago, Christchurch

campus, virologist Dr Lance

Jennings said the trend was

unexpected, even in the face of

international border closures due

to Covid-19.

It was a mystery, as scientists

did not fully understand why it

was happening.

“We might have expected it if

we had an influenza A pandemic,

because we have seen it before, but

with this virus (Covid-19) spreading

globally, it’s unexpected,”

Jennings said.

In the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic,

some other flu strains had disappeared.

While reduced air travel and

border management controls were

considered by many to be a cause,

Jennings personally thought it

was due to the phenomenon of

a dominant virus, in this case

Covid-19, filling an ecological

niche and not leaving any room

for flu viruses.

PETER SMITH is 82 years-old

A team of supporters, that is.

The team call themselves the

Crushers, a group of rugby-mad

Lady Wigram Retirement Village

residents who get together to

watch rugby and any other

sports they are interested in.

Smith said the Crushers have

followed the Crusaders most

recent Super Rugby season

closely, attending two home

games live and watching the

others on TV.

He said a recent highlight for

17 of the Crushers was visiting

the Southbridge house where

Dan Carter grew up, seeing the

goal posts on the section where

he used to practice kicking, and

getting a tour of Southbridge’s

rugby clubrooms.

About 30 Lady Wigram residents

are part of the team. Some

are ardent rugby fans and some

watch less often.

Many of the Crushers played

sport at a high level in their

younger days, and Smith and

others still get out to pass the

rugby ball around.

Smith trialled for the Kiwis

rugby league team, other team

members played senior rugby,

Vaccination important to protect vulnerable people

Director at the World Health

Organisation, National Influenza

Centre, at Environmental Science

and Research in Wellington, Dr

Sue Huang, said the low numbers

this year and at the end of last

year were “quite extraordinary.”

“I’ve never imagined that we

would experience this kind of

situation,” Huang said.

She has worked in flu surveillance

for about 20 years.

The median number of laboratory

confirmed cases during flu

season from April to September

from 2015 to 2019 is about 5000.

Last year there were 502 cases,

with only two of these having

occurred from October to December.

Dr Huang said it was still

important to be vaccinated,

in order to protect vulnerable

people.

She believed the drop in

cases had been assisted by border

closures and was “powerful”

testimony to the value of public

health measures, such as social

distancing and hand washing.

POLICE ARE investigating

after an 18-year-old girl and her

father were assaulted in their

home on Sunday.

The 18-year-old was returning

to their Opawa home on

Fifield Tce at 3.30am when she

disturbed the intruder.

She was then seriously assaulted,

a police spokesperson

said.

Her father came to her assistance

and was also assaulted.

Police believed the intervention

of the family member

stopped any further assault on

the person.

The offender then fled the

scene.

The intruder turned off the

power to the victims’ home during

a break-in.

It is understood the teenager

was punched repeatedly during

the attack and she and her

father suffered facial injuries.

The victims required treatment

at hospital and are assisting

police with their inquiries.

It is understood police believe

the attack was random rather

than targeted, and are looking

into whether the incident is

connected to other burglaries in

the area.

Police would like to speak

to anyone in the Opawa area

who had property disturbed

on Saturday evening or Sunday

morning or has information

that would assist the inquiry.

Police would not give more

information on the incident

when contacted by The Star.

Rugby player’s death sparks mental

• By Matt Slaughter

TANE HIPANGO’S twin

brother Tama never talked to

him or anyone else much about

his struggles.

But, these struggles got the

better of Tama, a Lyttelton Rugby

Club division four player, in

December, when

he succumbed to

mental illness at

age 31.

Now, determined

to not

see other club

Tama

Hipango

members suffer

in silence, committee

member

Aaron Stevens

and coach Joseph Tyro ran a

workshop on Friday for players

and coaches to discuss their mental

struggles and arm them with

methods to cope.

The workshop was funded

by New Zealand Rugby and

hosted by social worker Kereama

Carmody. It was part of a pilot

programme it is hoped may

expand Canterbury and New

Zealand-wide.

Hipango thinks an initiative

like this may have helped his

brother through his battle.

“We would talk not every

day, but honestly, almost every

second or third day we’d call on

the phone, and we would talk

about kind of nothing. We’d talk

mostly about rugby, I suppose, to

be honest, and the last text message

I got from him was about

rugby,’’ he said.

“He never talked to me about

his feelings.

“A rugby club is a community

space for all kinds of people, and

especially those who are, apparently,

at risk. It is men, young

men in that age bracket from all

kinds of walks of life. Having an

initiative like that, it brings so

much hope. It’s the right thing in

the right place.”

Hipango said Tama was

“extremely kind,” “an awesome

brother” and was loved by his

family. He wrote poetry in his

spare time, some of which, in

hindsight, he believes was about

his struggles.

The first time Hipango heard

Tama was struggling, was from

Stevens, who helped get Tama to

hospital just in time to save his

life after a suspected attempted

suicide in June.

Stevens said, at the club’s first

well-being workshop on Friday, a

mental illness in

December.

room of 30 rugby players and

coaches were asked how many

had considered suicide and 20

put their hands up.

Said Stevens: “[Hearing] people

that I said were hard men, hardened

rugby players, openly talking

about their well-being, I was

really proud of those boys, eh.”

Stevens battled anxiety himself,

after suffering a brain bleed as a

result of hitting his head during a

rugby game three years ago.

“I’d never had anxiety in my

life, I hadn’t suffered from depression,

but I banged my head

and because I had strength and

weakness around the wrong way,

I thought being a tough man was

to [say] it will come right, harden

up, but it didn’t.

The first time I knew I had

anxiety, I didn’t know what it

was. I thought I was having a

stroke . . . I ended up in A&E,

which resulted in a whole lot of

other therapy.”

Tyro, who works in the health

sector, said his a message for

rugby players is “it’s okay not to

be okay.”

He said traditional stereotypes

about rugby players having to be

staunch and harden up when faced

with adversity need to change.

“Concussion is one of the big

challenges and also the stereotypes

of traditional rugby in the

days of that culture – you don’t

talk about your feelings, that

harden-up kind of attitude. We’re

trying to change that kind of stereotype

and, usually, the alcohol

[consumption] after games and

all that.”

Tyro said key focus is also to

help players cope with mental

challenges caused by factors like

Covid-19, the earthquakes and

social media.

it’s rugby, [or] whatever we’re

Sporting celebrities pay tribute to

EMOTIONS RAN high at

Addington Raceway on Friday

night after John Morrison

was able to salute his No 1 fan

Charlotte McLeod just days after

she lost her battle with cancer.

Charlotte was in Morrison’s

thoughts when he flourished his

whip as he crossed the line in his

win with Time In The Bottle.

The Canterbury junior driver

carried the brave youngster’s

name, written in her own

handwriting, on a sticker on the

inside of his helmet.

The victory was the first time

Morrison had been able to

honour Charlotte with victory

after she lost her tenacious battle

with neuroblastoma – a type of

cancer that forms in nerve tissue

– last Monday at just nine years

of age.

Charlotte is the daughter of

Hayley and Hamish McLeod,

with Hayley the niece of Southland

breeder Diane Dynes.

Morrison has a special bond

with the Dynes and McLeod

families.

“Family is the main thing,

this family have supported me

all of my life and without them

I wouldn’t be here,” Morrison

said.

Morrison admitted it had been

a difficult week for the family

after he returned following his

win honouring Charlotte.

“It has been a tough week.”

Richie Mounga posted on Instagram

a photo of he and Sevu

Reece with wrist bands bearing

Charlotte’s name.

Said Mounga: “I bloody love

footy, but no way does it define

me. This relationship has taught

me so much. The people and

relationships I have in my life

will always be the best thing

about me.’’

McLeod was an avid supporter

of Morrison’s career and enjoyed

watching his races.

The youngster, along with

and her brother Fergus and

sister Maggie even had a pair of

Morrison’s pink silks made to

fit her.

“She loved watching the races,

she always enjoyed the races and

we even got colours made for the

three kids,” Morrison said.

“Her and her two other siblings,

we had colours made with

the pink and the white hoops

and they would turn up at the

races (wearing them).”

“It was good, you always knew

she was watching.”

Morrison first carried Charlotte’s

name on the inside of his

helmet just one day before her

passing when finishing second

at the Harness Jewels with Lifes

A Beach.

“Charlotte hand-printed that

herself and I got to wear it at the

Jewels when I ran second.”

“And that was the last race she

got to watch.”

Morrison’s victory brought up

his 50th win this season.

That tally gives him a five-win

advantage in the national junior

driver’s premiership over Sarah

O’Reilly, who notched doubles at

Forbury Park and Addington to

set up an intriguing battle.

As he strives to bring up three

consecutive junior titles Morrison

will have Charlotte in his

thoughts.

“All of this season so far is for

her.”

KORU NUTRITION

A few years ago Kathy was

worried everything would

all come to a grinding halt.

A natural go-getter, her love

for the wild rugged outdoors

was calling but every form of

exercise really was taking its

toll. “I just love to get out into

nature and push myself, but

even on the easy rolling walks

I was struggling to keep up”.

Nursing responsibilities were

becoming increasingly harder

and some of the old climbing

activities took a back seat. What

Kathy wasn’t prepared for was

the feeling that the older she

got the more her joints needed

support, that she would have to

slow down and scarily it all felt

overwhelming; thankfully this

didn’t turn out to be the case.

Now in her seventies, Kathy

is back out doing what she

loves whilst still working in the

nursing home. “All of us work

hard, and joke around having a

laugh, then it turns serious and

they ask me, ‘Seriously Kathy,

you used to be so worried about

getting older - what’s changed,

what is your secret?’”

“I’ve realised it is actually

no longer a secret - I was just

a little slow on the uptake. I

read a review from legendary

broadcaster Peter Williams and

then scrolled through hundreds

of others on the product Koru

FX”.

“It’s a natural rub rather

than a pill and if Peter finds it

good, then it must be worth a

try. I tell you what, the review

wasn’t wrong. I tried it and

now I wouldn’t be without it!”

Koru FX cream by Koru

Nutrition has become NZ’s #1

fastest growing topical joint

support cream. With thousands

of happy customers, Koru FX

has set a new bar for joint

support.

“I feel like I am back to

my old self. Last year, I was

up Mount Taranaki again. I

wouldn’t be doing that without

a bottle of Koru FX in my

pocket. I laughed when I saw

some cheap knock-offs - I tell

all my friends, if it’s not Koru

Fx by Koru Nutrition...it’s not

real.”

Containing high quality oils

like calendula, arnica, manuka

and peppermint, along with

12 others, Koru FX provides

the perfect formulation for

supporting joints and muscles.

Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional. Koru Nutrition Ltd, Christchurch.

Countless doctors and

pharmacists are recommending

Koru FX cream due to its

natural ingredients and fast

If you’re looking for a fastacting

is for you.

For priority two incidents,

AS TECHNOLOGIES,

smartphones and the internet

continue to change the ways

we bank, those without access

to such platforms are being

increasingly left out – and at a

price.

Having the opportunity to

speak face-to-face with fellow

human beings now seems like

the exception, rather than the

rule.

And, as far as New Zealand’s

banks are concerned, in-person

assistance is a privilege worth

paying for.

Research carried out by The

Herald shows that all of the

country’s leading high-street

banks are charging customers

for over-the-counter, in-branch

transactions.

Charges for such interactions

vary from $2.50 at Westpac

branches to $5 at BNZ for “staffassisted”

and “manual” transactions.

These include over-the-counter

withdrawals, setting up direct

debit services and bill payments.

As with most financial increments,

it is the poorest and most

vulnerable in society who bear

the brunt of such penalties.

Age Concern New Zealand

chief executive Stephanie Clare

said changes in modern-day

banking systems affect everyone,

especially the elderly, who are

unable to access online banking,

where such transactions are free.

There are so many changes

happening for our seniors in the

banking space, from the changing

of cheque use to more online

requirements,” she said.

BNZ imposes a $5 fee for

With New Zealand’s banking

sector phasing out cheques

and the continuing closure of

branches across the country, the

New Zealand Bankers’ Association

has provided a report for

Age Concern in order to help the

elderly transition to phone-based

and online banking.

In conjunction with New

Zealand’s six biggest banks,

Age Concern has been offering

“banking workshops” to help the

elderly with the transition from

face-to-face banking to online

and telephone services.

“Banking is a right,” Clare said.

“It’s all about working together

with these changes, particularly

with our seniors, who are used

to banking in a different way,

used to knowing who their bank

manager is, know who the bank

teller is.”

Clare said she is aware of the

fees for face-to-face banking and

advises those who are worried

about them to speak to the bank

in person.

“If people do have issues with

the charges, it’s best to go to

the bank and talk to someone.

There are still human beings in

branches and humans online

too,” she said.

New Zealand Bankers’ Association

chief executive Roger

Beaumont said he was unable to

comment on the banks’ fees as

each bank set their own charges

to operate in a commercial and

competitive environment.

Beaumont did, however, reiterate

Age Concern’s advice for

those struggling with bank fees.

“Anyone concerned about their

bank fees should talk to their

bank to discuss their particular

situation and how they can

avoid fees,” he said. “Some banks

waive fees for older customers.

Everyone’s circumstances are a

bit different and it pays to have

a chat about how your bank can

help you.” —NZ Herald

Petition for

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Walking into a new life

men’s refuge

• By Samantha Mythen

“IF I can save one more life,

walking for 24 hours is nothing.”

Starting at 7am yesterday

TWO HIGH school students

have started a petition to

persuade the Government to

fund refuges for men who are

victims of domestic violence.

Brooklyn Cavanagh and Jade

Frankland

started the

petition three

weeks ago, and

it has already

attracted about

900 signatures.

The two Year

13 Rolleston

College students

are aiming to

reach the 10,000

signatures

required for the

Government

to formally

consider the

petition.

“Domestic violence is often

hidden behind closed doors and

victims are sometimes afraid or,

in the case of men, embarrassed,

to come forward and seek help,”

Brooklyn said.

“Domestic abuse comes in

many different forms, from

verbal to physical, and can take

place over a short period to over

many years,” Jade said.

Currently it is only women’s

refuges that are funded by the

Government, leaving the 15

per cent of victims of domestic

violence who are men with

very little

support.

The pair

initially

became

interested

in the topic

as they

undertook an

assessment

for their

law and

psychology

class, aimed

Brooklyn Cavanagh (left) and

Jade Frankland

at trying to

change

a law or

policy

within the country.

They recently met up with

Selwyn district mayor Sam

Broughton, who was keen to hear

about the cause and offer support

by promoting the campaign. He

signed the petition.

If you want to help Brooklyn

and Jade, head to their petition -

http://chng.it/S7whY6CW.

morning, 2019 mayoral

candidate Stephen McPaike

began a 24-hour walk around

South Hagley Park, aiming

to clock up about 108km in

the name of stopping violence

against men.

McPaike’s hopes his Walk for

Help will raise both awareness

for men who are victims of

domestic abuse and funds to

assist with their recovery.

McPaike was inspired to begin

this project after a man trapped

in an abusive relationship

reached out to him during level

four lockdown.

They had been chatting over

the phone when the man’s

partner entered the room and

began physically abusing him.

He was taken to hospital for his

injuries.

McPaike said he helped the

man leave his relationship and

build a new life for himself.

“I chose to do a walk because it

symbolises walking out of a bad

relationship and walking into a

new and better life,” he said.

All money raised will be

donated to the Canterbury

Men’s Centre on Marshland

Rd, creating a fund for free

counselling for men who have

left abusive relationships.

The men’s centre sees 300

men through its doors each

week. They are the largest

community counselling service

in Canterbury.

The centre’s chief executive

Donald Pettitt said he was moved

by McPaike’s walk.

Please allow extra time for your

Orion is installing a new 66kV power

cable between the new Belfast

Substation on Blakes Road and the

Marshland Zone Substation.

As we lay the cable on Prestons

Road we need to close the road to

eastbound traffic. From 28 June for

up to 6 weeks you will not be able to

travel east on Prestons Road between

Marshland Road and Te Korari Street.

These are essential upgrades to the network,

so we can better service the fast-growing Belfast

and Marshland areas. To do this work, we need to

close Prestons Road, between Marshland Road

and Te Korari Street, to eastbound traffic so our

crews can work safely.

We understand the work and detour are an

inconvenience for residents and commuters.

Thank you for your patience.

THE FORMER owner of

Corianders restaurant chain in

Christchurch has been banned

from being an employer and his

companies ordered to pay almost

half a million dollars.

The Employment Court has

issued declarations of breach

against Jeet Holdings Ltd and

two other companies for

breaching the Minimum Wage

Act.

A banning order has been

issued against the companies’

director and shareholder, Amar

Deep Singh.

The court found he instructed

eight employees to complete

false time sheets – which lead to

underpayment over several years

– and when detection was likely,

tried to cover it up.

The companies and Singh

have been ordered to pay more

than $300,000 in penalties and

THE HERITAGE properties

of some of Canterbury’s most

influential women are struggling

to stay afloat as the effects of

Covid-19 take their toll on

fundraising.

The heritage properties of

Ngaio Marsh and Janet Frame,

which rely on visitor numbers

and fundraising events, are

facing tough financial challenges,

with private trust-backed

properties faring worse than

government-funded properties.

Visitor numbers have fallen

significantly since the borders

closed, with the former home of

Ngaio Marsh particularly hard

hit.

Ngaio Marsh House and Heritage

Trust chair Jessica Petersen

said the trust relied on fundraising

events to meet its operational

costs, but was unable to run

these with last year’s lockdown

and ongoing uncertainty around

alert levels, and the trust was

struggling financially as a result.

While operational costs

remained fixed, the trust’s

income had “dropped quite a lot”

and, because the trust was not a

publicly owned museum, it fell

through the cracks on a lot of

funding opportunities.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Heritage homes of Marsh, Frame

hard hit by fewer visitors

STRUGGLING: Heritage homes, including those of Janet Frame (left) and Ngaio Marsh,

are feeling the impact of fewer visitors.

“It is very hard to get a grant to

pay the insurance.”

Petersen said the trust had

relied on international tourism

in the past, with 40-50 per cent

of its pre-Covid income coming

from overseas visitors.

The trust’s use of Givealittle

had helped to relieve some of the

financial burden, but Petersen

is worried about the long-term

outlook.

“Post Covid, the world’s moving

online. How do you move

online as a house museum?” she

said.

“We have lots of creative ideas,

but innovation can be risky and

costly.”

Janet Frame Eden Street Trust

chairperson Chloe Searle said it

was facing similar challenges.

The sector is vulnerable,”

she said. “It is possible that we

(will) lose some smaller visitor

attractions like house museums

forever if they aren’t supported

during this time.

“We are anticipating less

revenue from visitors with the

absence of international visitors,

and competition for external

grants will be even stronger than

previously.”

Government-funded historical

properties are also feeling the

impact of the pandemic.

Kate Sheppard’s former Clyde

Rd home received two awards

last week at the Canterbury

Heritage Awards – the ChristchurchNZ

supreme award and the

Heritage New Zealand award for

outstanding contribution

to heritage.

The property opened as a visitor

destination last December,

and while it has avoided the

financial uncertainty that other

heritage properties are encountering,

it is struggling to attract

tourists.

Since the beginning of June,

the property has averaged about

70 walk-in visitors a week, much

less than the 170 visitors a week it

had anticipated, and the opening

of the trans-Tasman bubble has

done little to increase numbers.

Property lead at Te Whare

Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard

House, Helen Osborne, said

it has had only two or three

Australian groups come through

the house since the bubble

opened in April.

AN ECONOMIST and author

who specialises in policy

effectiveness says strategies

encouraging Christchurch

residents to get out of cars and

onto bikes and buses have not

worked.

But the city council says the

number of people cycling is

increasing and Environment

Canterbury says it is working to

address challenges facing public

transport and its popularity.

Dr Greg Clydesdale, an author

and former Lincoln University

economist, believes in spite of

urban planners attempting to

combat climate

with more

bike lanes and

buses, “they

have failed

significantly.”

Greg

Clydesdale ​

In his

submission

to the city

council’s Long Term Plan, which

has been up for consultation and

will be finalised next month,

Clydesdale said oil consumption

in Canterbury and Westland

increased from 1.672MT [metric

tonnes] per person in 2013, to

1.675MT in 2019.

He said figures show car

ownership in Canterbury has

also increased from 0.485 cars

per person in 2013 to 0.706 cars

per person in 2019.

As a result, Clydesdale

believes this means transport’s

contribution to climate change

has worsened under the city

council’s policies.

Said Clydesdale: “Our council

has spent millions on cycleways

and discouraging cars from

entering the CBD, and there is no

evidence of any benefit for climate

change. In fact, the evidence

suggests they have made it worse.

“By making it harder for cars

to travel and park in the city,

planners thought they were

encouraging car drivers to

switch to bus/bike.

“In reality, they were making it

harder for businesses to relocate

to town. This, in turn, made

buses less competitive with cars,

Mortgage advisers offer experience

and comprehensive service

TWELVE MONTHS ago, three

colleagues who had worked

in senior roles at one of New

Zealand’s leading banks over a

number of years decided to go

into business together.

Bringing their extensive experience

in banking and finance, particularly

mortgage finance, to the

table, they took on a Loan Market

franchise, setting up a small office

in Papanui as Loan Market Agile.

The three directors, Rodney

King, Dallas Roberts and Nigel

Ho, had worked with mortgage

customers from across the property

sector, including developers,

spec builders and investors, as

well as home buyers purchasing

properties from first homes to

top-of-the-range residences.

But, as they had observed,

times were changing in the mortgage

market.

“With bank branches closing

around the country, there was a

growing trend towards people using

the free services of independent

mortgage brokers,” Rodney

said.

“In fact, about half of the

mortgages in New Zealand are

now arranged through mortgage

brokers, and it was this growing

industry that attracted us,

as we believed we could provide

an excellent and comprehensive

service.

“What we offer is access to

all banks, and with the differences

between banks in mortgage

conditions and how much they

will lend, we are able to advise

our customers and arrange

mortgages with terms and rates

that will save them as much

money as possible,” Rodney said.

There are also a number of

other lending institutions we have

access to that will provide mortgage

finance in situations where

banks are not willing to. There are

no charges for our services, and

we provide ongoing advice and

like to build up long-term relationships

with our customers.”

Now, Loan Market Agile has

moved to new, larger premises in

a more convenient location – on

the corner of Ilam and Clyde Rds.

All three directors say they are excited

to be in their new Bryndwr

offices, and look forward to meeting

the local business owners, and

helping people in the community

achieve their financial goals.

ACCESS: The three directors

of Loan Market Agile. (From

and Dallas Roberts.

LOCATION: Loan Market

Agile has moved to a more

prominent site on the corner

of Ilam and Cyde Rds.

“We invite people to call in for a

chat and a free coffee at any time,”

Rodney said.

The support staff at Loan

Market Agile also have extensive

finance and accounting experience.

Loan Market has been

established for many years

and is New Zealand’s largest

independent mortgage broking

company, with branches

throughout the country.

Christchurch gang links

suspected in meth raid

• By Daisy Hudson

POLICE HAVE seized $20,000

worth of methamphetamine and

more than $40,000 from a group

believed to have strong links to

several gangs in Christchurch

and the lower South Island.

The raids happened across

Dunedin and Invercargill

on Tuesday.

Detective Senior

Sergeant Rob Hanna

said organised crime

teams executed a

series of warrants in

Dunedin and Invercargill.

The investigation focused

on the supply and distribution

of methamphetamine into the

southern police district.

The warrants followed the

arrest of four people in Waihola,

between Dunedin and Milton,

on Monday after the occupants

of an alleged stolen vehicle left

a crash scene and were later located

with the help of the Armed

Offenders Squad.

Two further arrests were made

on Tuesday as a result of the

search warrants.

Four men aged 25, 29, 32 and

34 have been charged with numerous

offences, including selling

methamphetamine, unlawful

possession of a firearm, unlawfully

taking a motor vehicle and

a variety of driving offences.

They appeared in the Dunedin

District Court on Tuesday.

Police believed that members

of this group have strong links to

several gangs in the lower part of

the South Island and Christchurch,

said Hanna.

Police have so far seized

methamphetamine with a

street value of about

$20,000, four vehicles,

one firearm and

around $42,000

in cash from the

addresses targeted.

Said Hanna:

“Methamphetamine continues

to cause extreme harm in the

community and police will

continue to focus and target

those selling and pushing this

harm in order to hold those

offenders accountable.

“Stopping its distribution will

reduce harm not only to those

that have already been exposed

to the harmful effects of this

destructive drug, but those who

may never have been exposed to

it before.

“We want to send a clear

message that such criminal

activity won’t be tolerated.

Police are committed to

stamping out the distribution

of methamphetamine and the

detrimental impact it has on all

communities.’’

Jonty’s big moment

Reuben Thorne and Jonty.

FORMER ALL Black’s captain

Reuben Thorne visited Burwood’s

Champion Centre last week to

promote a Trade Me auction for

a signed and framed 2007 Iveco

Series/ Philips Tri Nations All

Blacks jersey.

The jersey currently has a bid of

$2100, with the reserve met. The

auction finishes at 8pm today.

The Champion Centre provides

multi-disciplinary, early intervention

services to infants and

young children with significant

disabilities and their families in

Canterbury.

One of the centre’s own little

champions, Jonty, 22-months-old,

took the opportunity to be photographed

with Thorne to

help promote the auction. Jonty

was born with Down’s Syndrome

and has been with the centre since

he was six-months-old.

Jonty warmed up to Thorne

once they started playing with

the ball, rolling and passing it

between each other, which is one

of Jonty’s favourite things to do at

home.

Thorne was then given a tour

of the centre, where he learnt

more about its special early

intervention service, which

will receive 100 per cent of the

proceeds.

PREBBLETON’S residential

area could increase by more

than 80 per cent if plan change

applications before the district

council are all approved.

A new Prebbleton plan

change application takes the

number of applications before

the district council to three,

amounting to about 1520 new

homes.

This would represent an

82 per cent increase on the

district council’s current estimate

of about 1850 dwellings in the

town.

Prebbleton’s potential huge

growth comes as nearly 300

submitters lodge their opposition

and support to the 2000-home

Lincoln South proposal and

2100-home west Rolleston

proposal on Dunns Crossing Rd.

The new plan change

application is from Birchs

Village Ltd, for rezoning about

36.5ha at Birchs Rd, south

Prebbleton. The district council

has named it Plan Change 79.

It would allow for about 400

residential lots.

District council staff are

currently reviewing the PC79

request to ensure it is adequate

to put to councillors to

allow it to be publicly

notified.

The PC79 request

follows two others for

Prebbleton – PC68,

which would allow for

about 820 residential lots

on 67.5ha, and PC72,

which would allow for about 300

residential lots on 28.7ha.

The PC68 request is from

Urban Holdings Ltd, Suburban

Estates Ltd and Cairnbrae

Developments Ltd, for land

between Trents and

Hamptons Rd in south-west

Prebbleton.

The district council

has requested further

information from the

developers, before

ensuring the application

is adequate to put to

councillors to allow it to

be publicly notified.

The PC72 request is the

only one of the three requests

to have already made it to the

submission process.

At their meeting last week,

councillors accepted the

application, from Trices Road

Rezoning Group, which means

it can now go out for public

notification.

It relates to land on the southwest

of the town, generally

located between Trices, Birchs,

and Hamptons Rds, near land

recently acquired by the district

council for development as a

park.

Prebbleton Community

Association chairman Peter

Hunter said the area was already

seeing much growth with the

addition of two new retirement

villages, which would ultimately

see hundreds of new residents

settle in the town.

“In five years’ time, it could

well be a busy little retirement

centre,” Hunter said.

He neither supported

nor opposed the addition of up

to 1520 new homes which could

become possible under the three

plan change applications.

“As an association, we are

still getting our head around

it.

“We are still trying to have

conversations with council and

say: ‘What does this actually

mean?’,” Hunter said.

“I see progress as positive,

but it needs to be done well and

thoughtfully,” he added.

HUI: He Whenua Taurikura, New Zealand’s first hui addressing terrorism

and violent extremism, was held in Christchurch this week.

A united approach

to terrorism the key

I HAD the privilege of welcoming

ministers, public agencies and a range of

community members, academics, media

representatives and experts to He Whenua

Taurikura, New Zealand’s first annual

hui on countering terrorism and violent

extremism, earlier this week.

The hui was in response to some of the

recommendations

of the Royal

Commission

report into the

terrorist attack

on Christchurch

masjidain on

March 15, 2019.

In welcoming

(representatives) to Ōtautahi Christchurch,

I reminded them of the importance

of local leadership, and the need to engage

broadly across communities – ‘nothing

about us without us’.

This is the same theme that has led to

the response to Hollywood announcing its

intention to make a movie about what followed

the terror attack without engaging

deeply with the affected community.

Although it appears that the announcement

about They are Us was an attempt to

gain publicity ahead of seeking funding in

Cannes, I hope that the reaction causes a

rethink. It has caused enormous distress

among local Muslim community

members.

One of the issues the hui looked at

related to the underlying causes of terrorism

and violent extremism, including how

individuals journey down pathways to

radicalisation across a range of ideologies.

What can we do to intervene early, prevent

radicalisation, and build strong communities

that are resilient to extremism?

I told them that in 2019 then Councillor

Raf Manji and I visited the mayor of London,

Sadiq Kahn, who had just released

the report ‘A Shared Endeavour - Working

in Partnership to Counter Violent Extremism

in London’, which said “we will only

be able to counter violent extremism most

effectively if all in society work in partnership

together.”

I agree. I hope that we can come

together locally to talk about these issues,

so that we can form that partnership. It’s

the only way to tackle these issues.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Essential for optimum health

All the cells of our body require

coenzyme Q10, commonly known as

CoQ10 to function. It is critical to the

production of adenosine triphosphate

(ATP), the major cellular energy source.

The creation of ATP occurs in the cells’

mitochondria, which generate about 95%

of the body’s total energy needs. As all the

organs are made up of cells, CoQ10 levels

directly affect organ function. Sufficient

CoQ10 levels in the body have been

shown to decrease all causes of health

related mortality by half, according

to the results of double blind trials. It

is the first nutrient to improve heart

failure mortality in over a decade and

should be added to the standard

treatment, according to lead author

Professor Svend Aage Mortensen

(Copenhagen, Denmark). It

has been said that the levels of

CoQ10 in your cells is directly

related to your wellness state

as optimum levels of CoQ10

have been linked with

improved aging, exercise

performance, cardiovascular

and general better health.

CoQ10 has been very

well-researched to its

efficiency as a nutritional

supplement. However most

of the scientific research has

been on CoQ10 supplements

that are made using a natural

fermentation process to

produce a CoQ10 that is

identical to that found in the

body. Unfortunately some

CoQ10 supplements are

made synthetically and may

CoQ10 Vital for

Good Health!

CoQ10 is a nutrient that is absolutely vital to every cell

to perform its function & live. It is essential for energy

production, muscle function & required in sufficient

amounts for the heart to keep beating. A deficiency will

affect all organs & sufficient CoQ10 is considered an

important factor in reducing the chances of chronic disease

& reduced life expectancy.

CoQ10 is a fat soluble nutrient & its absorption is enhanced

when it is in a base of fatty acids. This formula contains

150mg of naturally fermented CoQ10 in a blend of fatty

acids from high quality fish oil to enhance the absorption.

Naturally fermented CoQ10 has been well researched as

to its efficiency as a nutritional supplement & is identical to

that found in the body. However some supplements contain

synthetic CoQ10 that has not been used in the research.

Co-Q10 SUPPORTS:

• Blood circulation • Lung Health

• Healthy blood pressure • Immune function

• Energy & endurance • Antioxidant protection

• Muscle function • Essential if on statin drugs

not produce the same results. Always check

the label carefully and look for “naturally

fermented” on the label.

CoQ10 levels in the cells have been

shown to start dropping by around the

age of 30. This decline continues as we age

and by around the age of 70 our CoQ10

level may be only 50% of the

optimum level. Some experts

have speculated, the heart

may stop beating if levels drop

below 75% of optimum levels.

According to Dr. Robert

Atkins MD and cardiologist,

“When some people who

need a heart transplant take

National Volunteer Week

RECOGNISE. CONNECT. REIMAGINE.

Te Wiki Tūao ā-Motu

20 - 26 JUNE 2021 | #NVW2021

Celebrating volunteering

National Volunteer Week, 20-26 June

2021, is an opportunity to celebrate

the volunteering which happens in our

communities around the country, and a

welcome chance to thank all those who

are out in their communities making a

difference. “The opportunity to make

a difference in our community must be

available to everyone”, Outreach Manager

at Volunteering Canterbury, Glenda

Martin, says, “and we are delighted

that, due to our wide range of member

organisations, the diversity of volunteer

roles we are able to offer does provide

opportunities for a wide range of people,

skills and interests”. While our older

adults may form the larger number of

current volunteers, the largest growth rate

remains with our younger people. “We

continue to be impressed by the younger

people who approach us to find out how

they can make a difference” Glenda said.

“Understanding the impact that the gifting

of their time has on the community,

together with providing a worthwhile

volunteer experience, will ensure that the

volunteering culture which has stood the

tests of time in this country for so long

will continue with this next generation of

volunteers.”

Volunteering Canterbury is shortly

launching an update of its online services

which will enhance access to information

on volunteering and volunteer

opportunities and sits alongside the faceto-face

service which operates from it’s

office in the heart of the city. Advocating

for volunteering and volunteers is another

important part of the day to day services

Volunteering Canterbury provides. “It’s

important that organisations recognise

their responsibilities to all those in their

work places”, Glenda says, adding that

Volunteering Canterbury’s Tautoko

Network: Supporting the Community

Sector programme provides regular

training opportunities in relevant areas

to support organisations’ volunteer

programmes.

Value volunteering

during National

Volunteer Week

Volunteering New Zealand is calling on

all types of volunteering to be valued during

Te Wiki Tūao ā-Motu National Volunteer

Week.

Everyone who gives their time freely

deserves to be recognised for their mahi

aroha.

“Volunteering takes many forms including

formal volunteering with organisations

as well as mahi aroha and social action.

Combined with the everyday acts of

kindness between friends, neighbours and

whānau, they help shape the kind of world

we want to live in,” says Volunteering New

Zealand Chief Executive, Michelle Kitney.

The world-leading shape of

volunteering in New Zealand

Aotearoa has been recognised in

international reports as traditionally having

a high volunteer rate compared with the rest

of the world.

Around 2.5 million of our team of five

million actively support organisations and

other people through volunteering, social

action and mahi aroha. This adds up to a

voluntary contribution of 159 million hours

per year to enable our not-for-profit sector

to operate. This contributes $4 billion to our

economy.

Research also shows that if you live in a

community with high levels of volunteering,

even if you do not volunteer, your subjective

wellbeing will tend to be increased by all

that goodwill and social capital building

around you.

The shape of volunteering as

impacted by Covid-19

So, what’s the shape of our volunteer

sector at the moment?

The impact of Covid-19 on the volunteer

sector has been very varied. We know that

some older volunteers stopped volunteering,

while we also saw a wave of new volunteers

across different age groups,” says Michelle.

“Regional differences have become

bolder, and the demographics of some

local communities are changing. Some

community organisations have experienced

an increased demand for their services,

stretching staff and resources. Funding

is the biggest challenge for volunteer

organisations.”

These were some of the results of a new

report, Status of the Volunteering Sector

May 2021: post-COVID recovery and

resilience. The research will help in the

sector’s recovery and preparedness for the

future.

The landscape of volunteering is

changing, in some cases exacerbating the

changes we were already seeing, in others

creating another shift entirely. Change

presents different challenges across

the sector, but also highlights unique

opportunities for reshaping and improving

the practice of volunteering. Volunteering

New Zealand continues to develop its

expertise in acting as the champion of mahi

aroha.

Call to action – keep shaping the

world we want to live in

Meantime, says Volunteering New

Zealand, volunteer organisations have

always needed more volunteers and better

funding. So, it has a few calls to action for

this National Volunteer Week.

• Look for where kindness, mahi aroha,

work for love, has impacted your life.

• Show your thanks to those people

giving kindness and mahi aroha through

#AotearoaOfKindness.

• Connect or reconnect with a community

or a cause that’s important to you through

volunteeringnz.org.nz/finding-volunteerroles.

• And for decision-makers, commit

to promote and value volunteering and

volunteers.

Making a difference

Presbyterian Support would not be

able to continue their work without

the valuable and vital contribution of

volunteers. Last year 267 volunteers gave

over 18,000 hours of their time to help

care for vulnerable whānau/families,

tamariki/childen and kaumātua/older

people in Christchurch, Mid Canterbury,

West Coast, Marlborough, Nelson and

North Canterbury.

Volunteers of all ages, backgrounds

and nationalities provide support to our

Family Works mentoring programme and

our Enliven programmes for older people.

Melbin Varghese likens his voluntary

role at the Tōtara Club in Riccarton to

that of being treated as a special guest

and no wonder, given his kindness and

psuppersouth.org.nz/volunteer

willingness to help others.

“As an immigrant, and not having

any family members in New Zealand,

working with older people and making a

commitment was a wonderful experience

for me. Whenever I went to the Tōtara

Club everyone treated me as a special

guest.”

“Volunteers make a huge commitment

to our organisation and the people

we care for,” says Barry Helem, Chief

Executive Officer for Presbyterian

Support Upper South Island. “Our

programmes rely on their generosity and

willingness to help others. We’re very

grateful to them.”

To learn more or to apply, visit www.

enlivenuppersouth.org.nz/volunteer.

To our volunteers ... thanks!

Last year 267 Presbyterian Support

volunteers gave 18,666 hours of

their time by driving, chatting,

serving food and refreshments,

opening their homes, visiting,

mentoring and much more.

We couldn’t do this without them

so thanks! It means a lot.

• By Chris Barclay

MARTY BANKS has embarked

on a trip down memory lane

after heading home from Japan,

back to where it all began for a

club rugby player turned cult

figure.

Reefton-born Banks returned

to Sheldon Park last Saturday,

coming off the bench for

Sydenham in their Christchurch

Metro Cup clash with Belfast.

It was a task approached with

some trepidation, not just because

he hadn’t played since his

NTT DoCoMo Red Hurricanes

lost their Japan Top League

quarter-final on May 8.

In the corresponding fixture

away to Belfast in 2012, you see,

Banks suffered a season-ending

knee injury in his previous outing

for the club.

There was a little bit of

uneasiness,” he confessed after

the 12-0 victory, though fonder

recollections dominate his

comeback to domestic footy.

With a fortnight in MIQ

looming, Banks contacted

Sydenham, with the intention

of boosting the club’s bid for the

title.

“I’ve got a house in Auckland

and the easy decision would

have been to stay up there and

try and get into a club that I

didn’t have a connection with,”

he said.

However, Banks and his

partner opted for Christchurch

after completing quarantine. He

had his first training session last

Tuesday.

“It’s not ideal coming in so late

in the season but I see it as an

opportunity to come back and

be that older guy, help out some

of the young boys and give back

to a club that helped me out a lot

when I finished school,” he said.

Banks left the West Coast

for a year in the Christchurch

Boys’ High School 1st XV in

2007 and then Canterbury

age-group team-mate Elliot

Dixon convinced him to bolster

struggling Sydenham’s ranks.

“We could have gone to (High

School) Old Boys, a club that

was doing pretty well at the time

but a group of us decided to go

against the grain,” said Banks,

who never regretted his career

move in 2008.

“Sydenham reminded me of

home a little bit. There was that

semi-country feel. Everyone had

a bit of a chinwag, there was

none of the cliquishness you can

get at other clubs.”

So Banks is feeling right back

at home, even if the playing

environment has changed

dramatically.

“When we started we had

a year of under-21s, now I’m

playing with 19 and 20-yearolds.

The landscape of senior

footy has got pretty young,” he

said.

Now, at 31, Banks is an elder

statesman in a group that sit

sixth on the ladder heading into

Saturday’s match with University.

“When I came into the team

we had a lot of guys who’d

played upwards of 100 games.

Guys like Jason Ryan, Andrew

Stead … the list just goes on.

Jack Umaga was the guy we

looked up to in the backline.

They’d take you under their

wing, make you feel welcome

and punish you in the old court

sessions.”

Banks, who was relieved to

have missed the most recent

drinking exercise, joined a gym

on Monday.

Golf courses also contribute

to his fitness regime while he is

also helping out the CBHS rugby

programme, focusing on the

backline.

Not that coaching is a priority,

Banks still has provincial and

Super Rugby goals.

“I feel like I’ve got a lot of

rugby left in me,” said the utility

back who famously slotted a

crucial dropped goal before the

Highlanders won their solitary

Super Rugby title – against the

Hurricanes – in 2015.

“I’d love to end up back at

the Landers but they’ve got a

young group coming through.

Mitch Hunt and Josh Ioane are

going bloody well so that door is

probably not open.”

Whatever happens, Banks

was content to be back in New

Zealand and “chipping away”

at the little nine-hole at Lincoln

during the week, taking in the

cool, clean air.

“For the last year and a half

in Japan we were pretty much

confined to our apartment and

training, that was pretty much

our life,” he said.

WINNERS: Canterbury’s

FOR THE first time in the history

of the Farah Palmer Cup, all

matches are to be broadcast live

and available on Sky Sport this

season.

In addition, every week a Farah

Palmer Cup match and NPC

match will be available free to air.

“Women’s rugby is skilled, athletic,

powerful and unique – and

now, everyone can see how superb

it is, wherever the Farah Palmer

Cup is played,” said Sky chief

executive Sophie Moloney.

Cate Sexton, New Zealand

Rugby head of women’s rugby,

said this move isn’t just an opportunity

to showcase the commitment

and dedication of women’s

rugby players, it will also inspire

women into the sport.

“With the increasing profile of

both international and national

competitions, we have seen tremendous

growth in the fan-base,

support and involvement from

women in rugby at all levels.

There is a real interest in playing,

getting involved in and watching

the game, it’s great to see.”

The resource for women’s

rugby has also grown significantly

over the years, having the support

of Sky as a partner is fantastic,”

said Sexton.

BIG CLUB MATCH-UPS THIS WEEKEND

Cashmere Tech won’t be resting

on laurels going into Chatham Cup

• By Chris Barclay

CASHMERE Technical

dropping points is a rarity,

though a draw with Ferrymead

Bays could not prevent the

Mainland Football premiership

powerhouse defending their

crown with two rounds to play.

The second stalemate of their

unbeaten campaign wasn’t the

only surprise, with Cashmere

Technical’s players shocked by

Nomads United’s 4-1 win over

Coastal Spirit, a result that sealed

a fourth successive title.

“We didn’t expect to win the

league (last Saturday), we didn’t

expect Coastal to fall over,” said

Cashmere Technical head coach

Dan Schwarz.

“It was very subdued to be

honest when he found out after

the game.”

Completing another league

campaign unbeaten, constructing

a deep Chatham Cup run

and carrying over their imperious

form into the new Southern

League ensures the squad will

not be resting on their laurels.

Cashmere Technical opened

the scoring through Garbhan

Coughlan from the penalty spot

and then provided the equaliser

with Tom Schwarz conceding an

own goal in the 32nd-minute of a

tight tussle.

The champions lead Coastal

Spirit by 10 points, with the

seasiders only able to bank a

maximum of nine with a catchup

game with Halswell still to be

scheduled.

Christchurch United became

the third of five premiership

clubs to qualify for next month’s

Southern League after they beat

Nelson Suburbs 3-1.

Nomads United are also poised

to join the Southern League after

beating Coastal Spirit.

The eight-team competition

also features three qualifiers

from the Football South Premier

League. The top two clubs then

advance to the National League.

Coastal Spirit are now tasked

with bouncing back in a tricky

third round clash Chatham Cup

clash with Christchurch United

tomorrow night.

Cashmere Technical are also

in action on Saturday with a

third-round fixture with Nelson

Suburbs at Garrick Park.

“We know it’s going to be a

difficult afternoon against them.

They’ve got some very good

players going forward. They’re

always capable of scoring three

or four against you,” Schwarz

said.

The remainder of the premiership

clubs have this weekend off.

HASTINGS

Linwood continued to maintain

a gap on the chasing pack with

relatively comfortable wins at the

weekend.

Champions Lincoln beat

fourth-placed Christchurch

29-18, Marist Albion claimed

a high-scoring encounter with

Sumner 36-28 and Linwood was

too strong for Shirley, taking a

free-flowing contest 46-27.

At the other end of the spectrum,

Burnside bounced back

from conceding a half-century

against Lincoln with a tight 8-6

win over University.

The status quo at the top of the

standings should remain this

weekend with Lincoln, Marist

Albion and Linwood drawn

favourably.

The Eastern Eagles resurgence

continued with a 26-22 victory

over last year’s beaten finalists,

the Northern Bulldogs their

fourth win in five games to stay

in range of a play-off berth with

five rounds of the Canterbury

Rugby League premiership’s

regular season remaining.

After losing their first four

games of the campaign, the

Eagles chalked up a third successive

nail-biting triumph after

leading 20-16 at the break. Lock

Uale Peneli notched a double for

the Eagles.

They now face a tough clash

with the Halswell Hornets at

Wainoni Park on Saturday.

Predictably there was no

change at the top of the table

with unbeaten Hornby thumping

winless Papanui 78-16,

second-placed Linwood beat

Riccarton 42-12 while the Celebration

Lions climbed into the

top-four by shading Halswell

28-22.

There is a new leader in Canterbury

Hockey’s women’s premiership

with Marist replacing

Harewood after they drubbed

Avon 6-0.

Carlton Redcliffs also shunted

Harewood back to third with a

6-2 win over Hornby, the defending

champions ceded ground

with 3-3 stalemate with HSOB/

Burnside.

Harewood have a chance to

overhaul the inactive Carlton

Redcliffs on Saturday when

they play Avon; Marist should

preserve top spot when they take

on Hornby.

There was no change in the

men’s division, where unbeaten

Marist maintained a five-point

advantage over Harewood

through a 3-2 victory over Avon.

HSOB/Burnside and Avon

make up the top-four.

Champions Lincoln University

continued to dominant the

Christchurch Netball Centre

premier grade with a 73-43

victory over Christchurch Girls’

High School in ninth round

action.

Kereru A also maintained

their unbeaten record with

a tougher 52-43 win against

fourth-placed Technical A on

Tuesday night.

Third-ranked University of

Canterbury swamped Villa

Maria 83-19.

ONE THING has definitely

changed for the Highlanders

this week — they will not need a

bonus point against the Blues at

Eden Park on Saturday night.

The franchise has battled its

way through to the final of Super

Rugby Trans-Tasman.

It is the Highlanders’ first appearance

in a final since they beat

the Hurricanes 21-14 in Wellington

to claim the 2015 crown.

The competition has undergone

a few changes since then.

This year, there have been two

titles up for grabs, courtesy of

Covid-19.

The transtasman tournament

has its detractors. But if the Highlanders

win, it is doubtful anyone

in the South will care much about

the curious format.

And to get this far they had to

register a bonus point win against

the Brumbies in Canberra last

weekend. That was no small task.

Assistant coach Riki Flutey said

his side had played well during

the past few weeks ‘‘and we are

excited by the big challenge ahead

of going up to Auckland to take

on the Blues’’.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

‘‘By the sounds of things it is

going to be a packed out crowd . .

. so it is going to be amazing.’’

Flutey said while his side has

had to chase bonus points in the

past few weeks, it had not formed a

major part of the side’s game plan.

‘‘A big focus for us has been

controlling our game. And we

know once we get on top of the

defence things will happen.

‘‘We made mention every week

that we could not go into the games

being loose with our structures and

how we played the game.’’

The Blues boast an attacking

backline which could be even

more potent come Saturday with

All Black Beauden Barrett in the

Blues’ camp.

His chances of taking the field

for the Blues may be slim given he

has only recently emerged from

managed isolation following a

playing stint in Japan.

‘‘That will add a bit of spark to

their attack if he gets the opportunity

to play. But also other

things we are expecting from the

Blues are their intensity and their

physicality that they always bring

to the game.’’

The Highlanders are nursing

a couple of fresh injuries. Potent

winger Jona Nareki and lock

Pari Pari Pakinson left the

field with shoulder injuries during

the 33-12 win against the

Brumbies.

Flutey was hopeful they will

be available but said they were

waiting on ‘‘another report from

the doc’’.

Flutey said the Highlanders had

had their share of injuries but the

players who had taken their spot

had managed to step up and will

again if need be.

Nareki’s absence, though,

would deprive the Highlanders of

a ‘‘massive attacking threat’.’

Thursday June 17 2021 The Star 35

Octavia wagon a lot of car for the money

I GOT INTO a conversation just

recently with a work colleague,

he’s also a car enthusiast, when

time allows we are always talking

about things automotive.

After asking me how I was

enjoying the Skoda Octavia

evaluation car, he raised a really

good point by saying out of any

car manufacturer, Skoda has

probably done the best job of

turning around its image.

That harks back decades, the

central European company had

a reputation that wasn’t entirely

complementary.

However, today, it is a class

leader in terms of design,

quality, reliability, efficiency and

refinement.

None of that surprises me,

Skoda, now manufactured in

what is known as the Czech

Republic, fell entirely into

Volkswagen Group’s hands in

2000. Since then the company’s

product has been on a constant

programme of improvement,

bearing in mind that Volkswagen

took an interest in Skoda in 1991,

and the product that has been

leaving the factories since then

has been outstanding, with the

Octavia being a classic example

of that.

In New Zealand we have two

Octavia wagons – Style TSi and

RS. Put simply, they are both

four-cylinder petrol-powered

with a turbocharger driving to

the front wheels, the TSi has a

1.4-litre unit, the RS has a 2-litre

engine, and it is the subject of this

evaluation.

The TSi has a power output

of 110kW and drives through

an eight-speed automatic

transmission. The RS gets

something special under the

bonnet, it has the engine that

makes the Volkswagen Golf GTi

so special. In the Octavia it is

rated with 180kW and 370Nm,

it drives through a seven-speed

direct shift transmission.

What makes the RS engine so

special are the points at where

the outputs are reached, power

peaks at just 5000rpm extending

to 6500rpm, maximum torque

is available all of the way from

1600rpm to 4300rpm. The

consequence of all of that is that

there is so much immediacy at all

points of the rev band, you don’t

need to have the engine singing

high to extract acceleration.

Such is the bottom end power,

the engine wants to pull from

low revolutions and that is a

good thing, it feels strong under

the accelerator pedal and hauls

solidly right to the red line.

However, that’s not necessary,

it’s great to manually (paddles)

short-shift the gears and feel

VERSATILE: A new aluminium ladder was easily

accommodated under the wagon’s tailgate.

SKODA OCTAVIA RS WAGON: Performance-based family wagon.

the turbo forcing air into the

cylinders vigorously.

In terms of acceleration, the

Octavia wagon will launch to

100km/h in 6.7sec and will

make 120km/h from 80km/h in

4.1sec. These are feisty times and

rewarding to feel, performance is

constantly vivid. Of course, the

Octavia has various drive modes

that can be selected at will, all

are self explanatory – comfort,

normal, sport and driverprogrammable

individual.

I used normal and sport most

of the time I was driving the

wagon, simply because there is

a nice audible throb delivered

constantly in those modes. It isn’t

loud, but it does let you know

something special is sitting up

front.

Normal and sport modes don’t

deliver a harsh ride. Yes, the

Octavia wagon has progressive

dampers which alter the way the

wagon rides. Personally, I couldn’t

tell a lot of difference, in all

modes the ride is compliant and

comfortable.

In order to beat the weather

bomb that was forecast for

Canterbury recently, I took to the

roads at dusk, and as darkness

encroached misty drizzle made

the roads greasy in places. They

weren’t ideal conditions, but it was

a good test of how the Octavia

wagon handled the conditions.

• Price – Skoda Octavia RS

wagon, $57,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4689mm; width, 1994mm;

height, 1468mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1984cc, 180kW,

370Nm, seven-speed DSG

automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

6.7sec

• Fuel usage – 6.6l/100km

I have a friend who has just

traded his Volkswagen Passat

wagon for a 2017 Octavia RS, and

he tells me how much he misses

the 4Motion system of the VW,

he says the RS doesn’t put power

to ground as well when the road

surface is slippery.

The conditions I drove in were

ideal to test that theory, and I

think it’s fair to say that Skoda

has done a lot with the latest

generation Octavia to make

it work when grip is low, the

electronics working well so that

I never had any issues. I guess

that also has a lot to do with the

quality of the low profile Good

Year tyres (225/40 x 19in), they

have a solid tenure and offer

plenty of feel so the driver is

fully aware of what is happening

underneath.

On board, the Octavia is chock

full of technology. The evaluation

car was carrying a lot of extras,

and it’s fair to say Skoda’s option

list is extensive.

However, even in standard

form the Octavia wants for little,

it carries all of those wonderful

features that have been developed

through the VW Group and,

what’s more, the fit and finish is

absolutely sublime. I particularly

like the gearshift lever, well it’s

more like a button really, just

requiring a gentle flick of a switch

to activate. The Octavia makes

you feel good to be in and it

looks after you with high comfort

levels and user-friendly in-cabin

dynamics.

It is also a genuine fiveseater

car, and the load space is

cavernous and adaptable so that

all of those belongings we tend

to carry with us can be stored

securely.

That’s just one of the reasons

why I like wagons and I

particularly like the Octavia RS.

Its performance and versatility

make it many different vehicles

in one.

I’d also be very interested

in driving the TSi wagon,

sometimes those with what

would be deemed the mainstream

model often turn out to be the

pick of the bunch.

In all cases it’s certainly time to

forget all those old disparaging

Skoda jokes.

Checklist for selling

your home

Make small fixes

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes,

and correct the flaws that are most

egregious (if affordable) or can be

relatively easily fixed—from repairing

cracks in the walkways to repainting

dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges.

Select the best real estate agent

For a commission, an agent will take care

of many details you may not want to be

bothered with (placing ads, fielding calls,

making signs, etc.) and bring experience

to the table. To find a good one, ask

friends and relatives, then interview

several candidates.

Set a price

A real estate agent will give you a market

analysis free of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the

market. Check out

comparable listings

yourself in the real

estate section of

your newspaper or

on websites. Then

decide whether you

want a quick, easy

sale or the highest

possible price.

Clean & declutter

Weed out excess

furniture,

knicknacks, and

“stuff ”—toss it,

donate it, give

themselves in it.

Stay vigilant about maintenance

Keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed,

gardens weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

Ready your home for open days

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh

flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of

cookies for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

Decide whether to do your own

building inspection

It may save you time, especially with

older homes, to identify—and potentially

solve—problems your buyer’s inspection

will discover later.
