MT PLEASANT resident and

school teacher Leigh Barker

is back in the classroom

after coaching canoeist,

Scott Martlew at the recent

Paralympics in Tokyo.

Barker describes the heat of

training as “brutal,’’ saying it

was a real shock to come from

the depths of winter at home to

the middle of summer in Japan.

“Daily it was between 35-38

degrees and Scott had to drink

lots of water every session, all

the coaches had umbrellas to

shelter their athletes under, and

ice water to help cool bodies

down. • Turn to page 4

Project

under way

to turn red

zone land

into berry

garden

• By Samantha Mythen

WORK HAS started to turn

abandoned Richmond Hill red

zone land into a berry garden.

The garden will be a place for

the community to meet, forage

and learn how to grow their own

berries.Sumner

Community

Garden volunteer

Paul Cragg,

is spearheading

the project.

“Although

level 4 lockdown

didn’t help the Paul Cragg

project, we’ve

since got it off the ground,” said

Cragg.

“It distressed me every day

when I walked, biked or drove

past the empty and unused red

zone land. I hope this will be a pilot

project that will inspire others

to apply to use red zone land too.”

Cragg has been pottering in

the garden since the start of this

month. There have been two full

working bees where members of

the community have helped plant

the first raspberry seedlings.

THERE IS a great initiative

happening on red zone land on

Richmond Hill (see page 1).

The Sumner Community

Garden has enlisted a keen

group of volunteers to turn the

land into a berry farm.

Paul Cragg from the community

garden said it would

often distress him when he saw

the land unused for so long.

Government red tape kept

any plans on hold until the

land went into city council

control in July. The council

then gave the okay for the

berry farm.

There have been two working

bees since the start of the

month, and the first raspberry

seedlings have been planted.

Plants, trees, herbs, compost,

a table and time have been

gifted to the project.

A great effort all round.

The Flower Show

Little River Gallery 25 September – 26 October

25 September – 26 October

Celebrating the season’s proliferation of vibrant blooms,

‘The Flower Show’ is a timely homage to Spring, interpreted by four

artists who are all new to exhibiting at the Little River Gallery.

What exactly do flowers show? For a careful observer they show the

fragility and power within us. Flowers show us that regardless of our

colours, shapes, characters, places we live in, we can bloom freely

simply by allowing all that we are to shine. - Galina Kim

Galina Kim is an award-winning Christchurch artist renowned for her

contemporary acrylic and mixed-media works. Her artistic studies

focused predominantly on textiles, and this influence is evident in

her rich, visually tactile style that is distinctively her own.

Motueka artist Kerry Fenton-Johns paints in both acrylic and

oils, expressing her love of nature through her intricately detailed

botanical paintings. Kerry paints mostly in a realistic style, inspired

by the contrast of light and dark and the use of subtle tones in the

natural world.

Informed by her print and pattern design background, Nelson artist

Georgina Hoby Scutt develops distinctive earthy colour palettes and

paints with broad expressive brushstrokes. Working across a range of

media, her work is primarily semi-abstracted landscapes, still life and

portraits.

Christchurch artist Harriet Millar’s works are hugely inspired by her

love of New Zealand landscapes, flora and fauna. Painting mainly

with acrylics, her interpretive style involves substantial layering of

paint with thick loose strokes and hints of unexpected colour.

The ongoing strong buyer demand for residential properties

across New Zealand was amply demonstrated

with the recent auction of a property in Diamond

Harbour, which sold at twice the RV (Rateable Value).

Marketing the two-level property with harbour

four-week auction campaign starting with the first

open home on Sunday August 8. However, as Lynette

explains, it didn’t work out as planned.

“Due to Covid, we were only able to run two open

homes, but once the South Island came down to

level 2, we had buyers who made private appointments

to view this amazing property.”

A solid, permanent material home with extra steel

was described as having many quality features and

Sweet fundraiser for Starship

• By Samantha Mythen

SEVEN-YEAR-OLD Lucy

White from Charteris Bay is on a

waiting list for heart surgery due

to a shortage of intensive care

beds. But it has not stopped her

family from fundraising to help

alleviate the shortfall.

Starship’s Paediatric Intensive

Care Unit (PICU) in Auckland

is currently at critical capacity

every 48 hours. It is the only

dedicated children’s intensive

care unit in the country, where

the most critically ill and injured

children are treated.

Starship needs to raise $40

million to meet its shortfall to fix

the bed shortage and upgrade its

PICU.

Lucy’s mother Charlotte

Easton said due to an

overwhelming need for PICU

beds, mostly due to the RSV

virus, they needed to wait one to

two months before Lucy could

have her surgery.

While they waited, they

wanted to help with Starship’s

fundraising efforts.

As Lucy’s father Myles White

has 100 beehives, the family

decided to spend a weekend

selling honey from their stall on

Blackpoint Rd in Charteris Bay.

They sold 43 jars and raised

more than $600, all with the

“incredible support” of the

Easton said Lucy, her first

child, had been a “perfect

pregnancy” and nothing

“troublesome” had been picked

up during her scans.

It was a normal birth until

they realised Lucy was not

breathing and she needed to be

resuscitated.

Lucy was diagnosed with

Williams Syndrome, a rare

genetic condition affecting only

one in 10,000 births.

It is characterised by

medical problems including

“We had Auckland buyers very disappointed that they

were in level 4 and were not able to come down to view

the property,” Lynette says.

“We had four registered couples ready to bid at the auction

by Conor Patton, Bayleys’ national auction manager,

The family took Lucy home

At five weeks old, Lucy and

“We had 26 bids, the average bid increment was $8,400

and the winning bid increment was $9,000. The

property is the only one to date that has sold 100 per

cent above rateable value. After a real bidding war it

sold under the hammer at $1,140,000.

The solo parent of four said the

first thing he did upon his return

home last week was give his

seven-year-old son his birthday

presents.

“I was sad when I missed

his birthday last Saturday,

but mum looked after him,

and I watched online, he’s

mad keen on Pokemon so I

asked one of the support staff

in Tokyo to see if she could pick

me up some Pokemon stuff for

his birthday which she a happily

did, my other son is also keen

on Anime so I had some gifts for

him and the other children as

well.”

But there was no rest for

Barker as he was back at school

the next day.

“While I was in MIQ I still had

to work on training plans for

Scott and also catch up on all the

school work I had missed.”

Barker teaches a variety of

programmes at the school and

said all this wouldn’t have been

possible without support from

Cashmere’s board of trustees,

principal and SLT and staff for

their great support.

“I can’t say enough about the

great people I met in Japan and

the huge support from everyone

here at home. It was great to hear

about all the TV coverage we had

on all the athletes.”

He said it’s been a “special

community effort,” with “plants,

trees, herbs, compost, a table and

time” all gifted to the project.

Sumner resident Kevin Hay

broke in some of the land with a

rotary hoe.

When Cragg first thought

of the idea earlier this year, he

approached Land Information

New Zealand which originally

owned titles to 440 Port Hills red

zone properties, for permission

to use some of the Richmond

Hill land.

“Unfortunately, LINZ didn’t

want people on it, but the

city council had a different

perspective,” Cragg said.

The red zone titles were

transferred to the city council in

July.

“The city council then gave

us the go-ahead to use the safe

areas of red zone land,” Cragg

said.

“We are the first group to have

applied for red zone land use this

way and because of this it was an

interesting process since the city

council didn’t have a process but

the red zone rangers who we’ve

worked with have been great.”

Cragg learned about growing

berries through his work with

the community garden.

The berry garden is situated on

land where three properties used

to stand, opposite the Sumner

Apples Never Fall

by liane moriarty

The Delaney family love one another dearly—it’s just that sometimes they want to murder

each other... If your mother was missing, would you tell the police? Even if the most

obvious suspect was your father? This is the dilemma facing the four grown Delaney

siblings. The Delaneys are fixtures in their community. The parents, Stan and Joy, are the

envy of all of their friends. The four Delaney children—Amy, Logan, Troy, and Brooke—

were tennis stars in their own right, yet as their father will tell you, none of them had what

it took to go all the way. But that’s okay, now that they’re all successful grown-ups and

there is the wonderful possibility of grandchildren on the horizon. An incident happens

with a stranger named Savannah and later Joy goes missing, and Savannah is nowhere

to be found, the police question the one person who remains: Stan. But for someone who

claims to be innocent, he, like many spouses, seems to have a lot to hide. Two of the

Delaney children think their father is innocent, two are not so sure—but as the two sides

square off against each other in perhaps their biggest match ever, all of the Delaneys will

start to reexamine their shared family history in a very new light.

SOLD: Auctioneer Rob McKellar takes a final bid of $2100 for the fibreglass giraffe, while Humpty fetched $3900 – two of many statues now on their way to

new homes.

Going, going, gone – Humpty falls to auction hammer

• By Samantha Mythen

MAGICAL fairytale creatures

and animals that adorn the

garden of fantastical Redcliffs

house ‘Brigadoon’ will travel

to new homes after an auction

emptied the property.

Just over 100 chattels,

including a child’s playhouse,

a fibreglass rhinoceros and

a Humpty Dumpty statue,

were auctioned off by

McCormack and McKellar

Antique and Fine Art

Auctioneers last week.

Rob McKellar said all 110

items were sold and the owners

of the “iconic” house and

garden were “extremely happy”

with this result.

“There were strong prices

and a good crowd who

were following alert level 2

restrictions with face masks,”

he said.

“It was a well-received

auction. As the house is

off Main Rd, many people

drive past it and see the

garden.”

Humpty Dumpty sold for

$3900, while a wooden horse

made from driftwood sold

for $3400.

The child’s playhouse sold for

$2600, the rhino for $2800 and

the giraffe for $2100.

McKellar said the auction

saw people bidding via phone

from Auckland and Tauranga,

although the majority of items

were sold to people from

Christchurch and Akaroa.

The age range of buyers was

from 35 to 70, he said.

The Brigadoon garden

has previously won multiple

awards as part of the

Christchurch Beautifying

Association’s annual

competitions.

A NEW book has been published

detailing the life of iconic

Lyttelton artist Bill Hammond.

Book editor and Christchurch

Art Gallery publications co-ordinator

Sarah Pepperle said the

book Across the Evening Sky

provides a “fascinating insight”

into Hammond’s paintings,

many of which have rarely been

seen before.

“Bill was a legend, one of

Aotearoa’s most important

artists, and the book is likely to

be extraordinarily popular,” said

Pepperle.

Authored by curator Peter

Vangioni, the book is the companion

to the 2007 award-winning

book Jingle Jangle Morning.

Vangioni said despite now

being out of print, Jingle Jangle

Morning is still being requested.

THE 40,000 daffodil bulbs planted in the Lyttelton

Anglican Cemetery and the Lyttelton Catholic and

Public Cemetery in June are now beginning to bloom

with spring’s arrival.

The daffodil bulbs cost $18,000 and were funded

through the city council’s community parks green asset

renewal programme.

The planting initiative was proposed by the council’s

in-house cemetery maintenance team in December 2019.

There have been 3800 burials within both cemeteries

and 95 per cent of the burials are classified as heritage,

dating pre-1950.

“Fascinating insight” into artist’s life

explores what is arguably the

strongest period of Bill’s work,

featuring large, beautiful bird

paintings set in mythologised

landscapes,” he said.

Work on the project began last

year as a collaboration with the

artist, who died in January

aged 73.

It includes a recorded conversation

with friend and fellow

Christchurch artist Tony de

Lautour.

Gallery photographer John

Collie travelled around the

country to capture images for the

book, many of which are held in

private collections.

Renowned artists, including

Fiona Pardington, Marlon

Mr Hammond’s practice – and

and Canterbury Museum senior

SUPPORT LOCAL: House of Travel Owner Mel Hubber is working with

other Ferrymead businesses to promote each other online with a $2000

giveaway for a lucky shopper.

Giveaway to encourage

residents to shop local

• By Samantha Mythen

HOUSE OF Travel owner

Mel Hubber, frustrated

with another lockdown,

decided to turn her

helplessness into action,

rallying together other

Ferrymead businesses to

promote shopping local.

Hubber and about 20

other businesses are running

an online giveaway

with a prize package worth

more than $2000.

During the recent lockdown,

Hubber said she felt

helpless for every business

that could not trade unless

they had the click and

collect model.

“I started to think, what

can I do? There are so

many pockets of awesome

in Ferrymead where I live

and work,” she said.

“In level 3, I drove

around Ferrymead, looked

at the different businesses

and then worked out the

idea of an online giveaway.”

Hubber approached the

different businesses that

were “overwhelmingly”

keen to support the idea.

The aim is to increase the

business’ online presence

as well as “stand in solidarity

and come together

in unity during difficult

times,” Hubber said.

The prize pack includes

one night accommodation

for two in Hanmer

Springs at Alpine Lodge

from House of Travel, one

month free membership

from 9 Rounds Ferrymead,

a barbecue pack of preservative

and gluten free goods

from Bangers ’n’ Bacon, a

$200 voucher from Pizza

Republic, a 10-class pass

for Pilates mat classes at

Physio Evolved and more.

Lynton Hubber Harcourts,

Caci, Dispense

cafe, Connect Chiro, Party

World, Wink Shoe Store,

Seventh Wave Wetsuits,

Casual and Country

Homestore, ten27 Eatery,

Dubba Deluxe Ferrymead,

Yazu Hair Lounge and

Wash HQ are also involved

in the giveaway.

Each business has created

a post on their Facebook

and Instagram pages.

To enter, participants

must like or follow each of

YOUR LOCAL

ACCOUNTANT

I COME

TO YOU

the business’ social media

pages, like the post, and

then tag a friend in the

post comments, explaining

why they love that particular

Ferrymead business.

Hubber said she was

getting “such a buzz” seeing

the local community’s

engagement.

“There is a big pool of

people who love Ferrymead

businesses,” she said.

Covid-19 has hit hard

Hubber’s business with the

last 18 months decimating

the travel industry.

“We were in growth

mode in January 2020

until Covid hit,” Hubber

said.

“Currently we can

send people out of New

Zealand, but it’s so hard

to actually then get people

home.”

She is the only person

working at the Ferrymead

office, down from eight

staff and two directors.

“I am delighted the shop

local idea via our giveaway

has gained the attention it

has,” Hubber said.

“You have until

September 30 to enter.”

Felix von Luckner

– war criminal or

swashbuckling

rogue?

Felix von Luckner, born in

1881, was the child of an aristocratic

military German family.

He ran away from home at the

age of 13 and began what was

to be a very colourful life spent

both at sea and on land.

In World War 1, von Luckner

captained the SMS Seeadler, the

last square rigged sailing ship

ever to be used in combat. From

this ship, elaborately disguised

as a cargo transporter, von

Luckner and his crew evaded

the British Admiralty and sent

14 ships to the sea floor, all with

the loss of only one life.

Captured crew would be

taken on board the Seeadler and

(given the circumstances), be

treated with a strange level of

hospitality including charm and

champagne.

The Seeadler was wrecked

on a reef near Maaupelia in

French Polynesia. Von Luckner’s

account is an example of his colourful

storytelling; involving a

mirage and tidal wave, when the

actual cause of the wreck may

have been far more pedestrian.

However, with a small crew,

he did then sail a 10m lifeboat

2000 miles across the Pacific –

all the way attempting to pass

themselves off as Dutch American

adventurers. Consequences

eventually caught up with them

when they were arrested in Fiji

and sent to Motuihe Island in

the Hauraki Gulf as prisoners

of war.

Von Luckner’s intriguing life

history does not stop here – with

a group of nine other internees,

he escaped from the camp,

hijacked a passing ship; the Moa,

and sailed to Raoul Island.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Treasures from the past

Von Luckner

with his

second

wife and

characteristic

pipe.

A pursuing naval auxiliary

ship caught up with him and

he spent the remainder of the

war in various war camps in

New Zealand, including Ripapa

Island in Lyttelton Harbour.

Post war, von Luckner set out

on a goodwill mission and was

fettered in many places, not only

for his record of seamanship and

minimal loss of life, but also for

his entertaining speaking skills

and personal charisma.

He had great physical strength

and was purported to be able to

bend coins and tear a New York

city telephone directory in half

with his bare hands.

During World War 2, von

Luckner was in a somewhat

compromised position; a Freemason,

he was not favoured by

Hitler, who nevertheless tried

to use him for propaganda purposes.

In 1943 he saved the life

of a Jewish woman who escaped

to the United States. In some

circles he was admired as a war

hero, in others, he was branded

as a Nazi propagandist, which

he denied.

Von Luckner, with his second

wife, lived in Malmo, Sweden,

until his death in 1966. We

know that Baden Norris, founder

of the Lyttelton Historical

Museum Society, met Von Luckner

on this trip to New Zealand

in 1938.

Baden, a young boy at the

time, was impressed by von

Luckner’s character and war

record (and von Luckner’s

ability to talk around the pipe in

his mouth).

Landfill

sites to be

restored

THREE FORMER landfills on

Banks Peninsula will be restored.

City council resource recovery

manager Ross Trotter said work

will get underway at Le Bons Bay,

Onuku and Barrys Bay sites later

this year.

“At Le Bons Bay preliminary

site works – primarily tree removal

– began in April with landfill

removal scheduled for October,

subject to resource consent.

“Due to the site’s proximity

to the Le Bons Bay cemetery an

archaeological authority has been

issued for the work,” Trotter said.

Meanwhile, a detailed design,

scope of works and costing is

being prepared for the old landfill

site at Onuku after areas of slumping

and exposed material were

identified.

“After receiving advice on how

best to remediate the issues, we

are planning to carry out work

between October and November

this year,” Trotter said.

“The remediation will be undertaken

at the same time as a car park

will be developed on the top of the

old landfill next to Onuku Rd.”

Costing is also under way for

minor repairs to the seawall at the

closed Barrys Bay landfill.

A Message from the Board

The announcement of a Level 4 lockdown on the 17th of August, was déjà vu

for us all, and saw the Marian College staff and students transitioning back into

home learning.

As a Board it was great to see the level of resilience and support the students

continued to demonstrate even when they were not in the same space as each

other. We are very fortunate to have staff who were committed to ensuring that

all our students had access to the resources and support they needed to enable

them to continue their learning in these challenging times.

This latest lockdown has once again meant the cancellation or postponement

of scheduled events in the school calendar.

However, despite all this, we have so many reasons to celebrate as a school

community. Our Jazz Band ‘MC Jammer’ were recognised as Most Promising

Band at the Southern Jam Festival; our students were part of the wonderful

Jubilate Mass in the Town Hall and the Marian College Variety Concert was a

reminder of just how talented and passionate our students are.

Finally, we are excited to announce that Armitage Williams has been

appointed by the Diocese as the construction company for the new school

build. Although there will no doubt be some disruption due to the latest Covid

lockdown, to know that work on Marian College’s new home will soon be

underway is cause for celebration. Our school motto is ‘With Mary in Faith’,

and we continue to move forward with faith in our future as we look towards

the opening in 2023.

Protecting the future of Ōtautahi

Jazz Band takes ‘Most Promising’ title

Marian College Jazz Band ‘MC Jammer’

is revelling in recent successes

having received a Silver Award and

named Most Promising Band at the

Southern Jam Youth Jazz Festival in

Blenheim.

This was the first-time band members

Taylor Fasi-Fidow (drums), Niamh

Ryan (saxophone), Amy Kirk (vocals),

Lyka Narciso (guitar) and Lydia

Iosefo (bass) had competed together,

having just formed the band at the

start of the year.

The weeklong event involved jazz

bands from 16 high schools across

the South Island performing at locations

across Marlborough ending

with a gala night and awards ceremony.

Marian College Head of Music Miranda

Allison said it was the first time in

Marian College’s history that the Jazz

Band had taken out a Silver Award

which meant a lot to the students

and their director – former student

Frankie Daly.

“It reflects the level of talent and the

work ethic of the students in the jazz

band this year. Most of the members

have never played jazz before 2021,

so they have done incredibly well to

climb the ranks so quickly.

In receiving the Most Promising Band

Award, judges Roger Fox and Dave

Wilson said the band ‘warmed their

hearts’ and ‘we will never forget you’.

“It meant so much to us as a band, as

it meant the girl’s enjoyment in their

craft and for playing music with each

other came across,” Ms Allison said.

Amy said receiving the Most

Promising Band Award was totally

unexpected.

“It was a moment we’ll never forget.

We were all close before, but this trip

made us closer and we were so glad

the judges could see that in our

performance,” she said.

The recognition from the judges

reflected the hard work the girls had

put in, Taylor said.

“We’re a small band from a small

school. It just showed that in such a

short amount of time we were able

to form a good connection and create

good music,” she said.

For Niamh, who has performed in

Southern Jam twice previously with

other bands, receiving the Silver

Award was a significant achievement.

“We’ve never done that before. It was

a moment of pride which we were not

expecting and we’re just really proud

of ourselves.”

Combating climate change locally

was at the forefront of Marian College

Year 10 students minds recently

as they set out to put the Catholic

Social Justice teachings of ‘participation,

common good, and stewardship’

into practice.

As part of their Social Studies

course, the students participated

in the Christchurch City Council

programme ‘Future Proof: Climate

Change – Kaitiakitanga’ which aims

to help students learn about how

climate change will directly impact

the city and how we can all make a

difference.

The students then spent the afternoon

planting more than 1000 native

plants in the Cranford Basin.

“It was reassuring to know how important

what we were doing was and

how much it will help future generations,”

Lise Kirwan said.

Congratulations to our Year 12 and 13 Pasifika leaders Beautienna Gamble, Taylor

Fasi-Fidow, Shemaiah Iosefo, Valelia Taaso, and Grace Petelo who were recognised at

the SPACPAC Leadership and Academic Awards recently.

Plenty of sting in feisty Kia sport sedan

THE FORECAST wasn’t good

– a weather bomb warning was

issued for Canterbury and the

predictions were right, we were

hammered by rain and wind on a

weekend when I had Kia’s Stinger

sport coupe for evaluation.

As a consequence, and in the

interests of safety, I took heed of

the advice to stay at home and

to travel only if necessary – the

Stinger was parked up for much

of the time it was in my care.

So for the first time in many

years I asked Kia New Zealand if

I could have another crack at the

Stinger, it was kindly rescheduled

and, what’s more, when my time

in it arrived again the roads were

dry, although being winter in

Canterbury you do have to be

wary of all day ice.

The mid-Canterbury roads

are perfect for the Stinger, it’s a

genuine tourer and with its fourdoor

design it is very desirable

with power to match its stunning

looks.

The appropriately-named

Stinger first landed in 2018

and it’s fair to say it’s not a huge

seller, but it is an affordable

niche market car that has appeal

for those who like rear-wheeldrive

and a strong turbocharged

engine.

For 2021 the Stinger has had

a bit of a refresh, there are many

trim and cosmetic changes inside

and out, and in the V6 variant

there’s a new exhaust system

designed to improve gas flow,

the latter also provides a mild

boost in power from the previous

model.

As I’ve alluded to, there are

actually two engine options

in Stinger – there’s a 2-litre

turbocharged four-cylinder

unit ($69,990) and the 3.3-litre

twin-turbocharged V6 that adds

$10k.

While I’d like to have a drive in

the four-potter, the GT Sport V6

variant is certainly very exciting.

Peak power is rated at 274kW (up

2kW), maximum torque is listed

at a beefy 510Nm and is available

all of the way from 1300rpm to

4500rpm.

Kia says that a standstill

to 100km/h time of 4.9sec is

possible and it also claims a

10.2-litre per 100km combined

cycle fuel usage rating; if you add

all of these figures together and

analyse them you end up with a

strong, quick performance car

and one that isn’t too hard on

fuel.

I returned the evaluation car

to the dealership with 11l/100km

showing on the fuel usage

readout, which I thought was

most acceptable. At 100km/h the

readout is listing a 7.1l/100km

instantaneous figure with the

engine working over slowly at just

1500rpm.

Drive is channelled through

a paddle-shift, eight-speed

automatic transmission, the

rear axles are guided through

an independent five-link set-up

STYLE: Four doors and a liftback rear gives the Stinger a

coupe-like look.

KIA STINGER: Plenty of power with turbocharged V6 engine, or a four-cylinder unit if you

prefer more sedate.

with the spring and damper

rates not overly firmed.

Engine management protocols

can be altered through various

drive modes, there’s even an

individual one which the driver

can pre-program to suit his or

her driving styles. Sport mode

isn’t overly aggressive, but it

does significantly enhance the

liveliness of the engine, the driver

is fully aware the power is being

directed to the rear wheels and

it’s a magical, natural feel that

constantly tantalises. Also, when

the car is in sports mode the seat

uprights move to grip your torso,

it feels very reassuring.

Engine power is such that with

forceful throttle openings the rear

tyres can be encouraged to break

grip; of course, traction control

settings override that quickly, but

there is an element of playfulness

built into the system, oversteer

is constantly possible. I never

removed TCS to explore the

extremes but I can definitely report

the Stinger is a full driver’s car.

What’s more amazing is the

tyres have significant grip in the

first instance. Michelin supplies

the rubber, and the rears at

255/35 x 19in have massive road

surface cover. The fronts are bit

thinner at 225/40, but they still

steer beautifully. The Stinger has

accurate turn-in and positive

directional accuracy, it’s a case of

point and turn.

When it comes time to slowing

the Stinger, four-corner Brembo

brakes provide massive braking

• Price – Kia Stinger GT

Sport, $79,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4830mm; width, 1870mm;

height, 1400mm

• Configuration – V6,

rear-wheel-drive, 3342cc,

274kW, 510Nm, eightspeed

automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

4.9sec

• Fuel usage – 10.2l/100km

power, the pedal feels absolutely

delightful.

Inside, the layout is spectacular,

new-age gauges and all the

mod-cons you could imagine

come as standard spec. There’s

new leather trim, well it’s a nappa

leather meaning it’s quite soft

and cosseting, and there are seat

heaters for those cold mornings,

along with a heated steering wheel.

The in-cabin detailing is laid

out for ease of use, the controls

and display screen graphics are

intuitive and easy to read.

The specification list

is extensive and way too

comprehensive to list in detail

but to say the Stinger doesn’t

miss out on much and there’s

also a five-star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program safety

rating.

One of the features that is

worth noting is the smart key that

has a remote engine start option,

it would be good to get the air

conditioning cooling the car

down on a hot day before getting

in. Another clever piece of kit is

the hands-free powered tailgate

that will open automatically if it

detects you and the key in close

proximity for longer than three

seconds.

Comfort levels are also high

both front and rear, and there is

a surprising amount of interior

space. The low roof-line doesn’t

affect rear head room, well not for

my daughter anyway, she is tall,

so I guess unless you are a sixfooter

that shouldn’t be an issue.

The Stinger could well be

described as Kia’s best kept

secret, I haven’t seen many on

our roads and I’ve never seen

a four-cylinder version. That’s

quite sad really for the Stinger

is one classy car and a very

exciting sports sedan to boot. It’s

also an opportune time to buy,

from January the Stinger V6 will

certainly be a $4600 victim of the

Government’s tax to incentivise

buyers into electric vehicles.

Kia New Zealand is marching

along at a good pace with strong

sales, and Kia product is slowly

distancing itself from its Korean

partner Hyundai.

It’s wonderful cars like the

Stinger that are providing that

individualism and an almost

unique driving experience. I

applaud the company for going

to such lengths to develop that

rear wheel-drive platform, which

has most definitely pitched itself

against the high profile models

that sit in that part of the market.

MARKET UPDATE

Daffodils and signboards popping out of nowhere, but what's the buzz

about spring?

Properties look their best in springtime, the gardens start to come back to

life, warmer weather, and longer nights. Spring brings change, new life,

and for some people a new place to call HOME as we come out of

hibernation. With the days growing longer and starting to countdown to

Christmas, buyers are on the lookout to secure their next venture.

Listing rates generally increase during the springtime meaning more stock

on the market, giving buyers more choice with what they want to buy.

Having a dedicated Home Specialist on your side means that you and your

HOME are getting the attention and service you deserve. Your property

presents itself best in springtime, so why not pair it with specialists that

have the best marketing around.

If you want to make the most of the spring season and have your first

Christmas in your forever HOME, reach out to your local Home Specialist

today.

Q What is the main reason for having a home professionally styled?

COASTAL VIBES | IN HOUSE STYLING

A Styling your home is an investment to ensure you get the top market price for your property

Q How does it have such an effect on the end result?

A It’s the first impression that counts when potential buyers enter your home, we want them to fall in love by

creating a vision of their future

Q Is all home styling the same?

A No home is created equal, we ensure the unique features of a home are reflected in the way we style a home

Q How long should I have my home staged for?

A Ideally, your property should be staged for the length of the campaign and it is essential the staging items are in

before the first open homes for impact on potential buyers

Q Can I live in the property while it has staging items in it?

A If a HOME is fully staged then the answer is no, but if you only have partial staging and the main items are your

own possessions then you can still remain in the property.
