Heart problems, cycling – Brian’s back<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

FOUR-TIME Olympian Brian<br />

Fowler has embraced an uphill<br />

battle since suffering a series<br />

of mysterious cardiac arrests,<br />

where cycling downhill is<br />

hazardous to his health.<br />

The 59-year-old Lincoln<br />

resident is back on the road<br />

bike in spite of life-threatening<br />

heart issues, though his fitness<br />

regime is now confined to flat<br />

routes around the township, for<br />

safety’s sake.<br />

Fowler is still susceptible to<br />

cardiac arrest, meaning he is liable<br />

to black out until a defibrillator<br />

placed under his rib cage<br />

jolts him back to consciousness<br />

with a 400-volt shock.<br />

“If you feel it coming on<br />

you have about 3-4 seconds<br />

because once your heart stops,<br />

LIFE-CYCLE: Former Olympian<br />

Brian Fowler is living with the<br />

constant threat of experiencing<br />

a cardiac arrest but an internal<br />

defibrillator is enabling him to<br />

get on with life.<br />

your blood pressure goes and<br />

basically you pass out,” he<br />

explained.<br />

So Fowler, who rode for New<br />

Zealand at the Los Angeles,<br />

Seoul, Barcelona and Atlanta<br />

Olympics, has had to modify his<br />

lifestyle. • Turn to page 7<br />

Number<br />

of RATs<br />

distributed<br />

totals<br />

almost<br />

50,000<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

ALMOST 50,000 Rapid Antigen<br />

Tests have been distributed from<br />

the Canterbury District Health<br />

Board’s new collection site at<br />

Rolleston since it opened last<br />

week.<br />

Covid-19 cases continue to soar<br />

in the district, with active cases<br />

reaching 1722 on Monday. This<br />

number was following a steady<br />

climb each day, and is more than<br />

double the number of 820 just<br />

nine days earlier on <strong>March</strong> 5.<br />

CDHB Emergency Coordination<br />

Centre incident controller Dr<br />

Helen Skinner said the number<br />

of RATs distributed from the site<br />

so far was similar to the health<br />

board’s other RAT collection sites<br />

in Canterbury.<br />

“There have been some small<br />

queues at the start of the day and<br />

around 5pm but on the whole,<br />

most people are in and off site in<br />

five minutes,” Skinner said of the<br />

Rolleston centre.<br />

“Please be patient and kind if<br />

you need to wait as it is busy. Our<br />

staff are doing their very best to<br />

provide RATs to everyone who<br />

needs them as quickly as possible,”<br />

she said. • Turn to page 4<br />

A SCHOOL bus run from<br />

Darfield and West Melton will<br />

stay, but it comes with a price<br />

tag.<br />

Fares are going up, from $8 to<br />

$11 per trip from Darfield, and<br />

$5 to $8 from West Melton.<br />

The Torlesse Travel Ltd service<br />

was in jeopardy, with rising fuel<br />

prices one of the factors putting<br />

pressure on the company.<br />

It was last week considering<br />

stopping the service, causing<br />

angst among parents not<br />

knowing how they would<br />

otherwise get their children to<br />

Christchurch schools.<br />

Operations manager Vernon<br />

White told <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> on<br />

Monday the company was<br />

securing work for the bus<br />

during the day. He did not have<br />

time to talk further prior to<br />

deadline.<br />

Last Thursday, a letter from<br />

the company to parents also<br />

stated it had been able to secure<br />

additional work for the bus,<br />

which would help offset some of<br />

the running costs.<br />

This included the hike in<br />

petrol prices.<br />

“This service will continue to<br />

operate throughout term 2 and<br />

Trade waste<br />

discharges<br />

straining<br />

treatment<br />

plant<br />

UNCONTROLLED trade waste<br />

discharges are placing strain on<br />

the Pines Waste Water Treatment<br />

Plant at Rolleston and causing<br />

operational difficulty.<br />

Water services senior staff<br />

reported to last week’s district<br />

council meeting that a risk analysis<br />

was being undertaken. This<br />

was focussed on proactive warnings<br />

and management, combined<br />

with a response plan of mitigating<br />

measures, which had been effective<br />

in recent months.<br />

The plant capacity is expected<br />

to be increased in years to come<br />

as it serves increasing portions of<br />

the district. Currently, installation<br />

of a $38m scheme is underway to<br />

pipe sewage from Darfield and<br />

Kirwee to the plant.<br />

The district council was not able<br />

to answer questions from <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

<strong>Times</strong> on the nature of the trade<br />

waste discharges or how they had<br />

placed strain on the plant.<br />

District council infrastructure<br />

service delivery manager Gareth<br />

Morgan said the matters were still<br />

under investigation and did not<br />

affect the plant’s ability to service<br />

the district.<br />

• From page 1<br />

“As staffing resources allow,<br />

further RAT Collection sites will<br />

be set up in other areas. Please<br />

check Healthpoint and our website<br />

for the latest information on<br />

sites and opening times, as they<br />

will change over time.”<br />

The district council has<br />

provided a road reserve for the<br />

centre, and its civil defence team<br />

and volunteers are providing<br />

logistical support.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton said<br />

the district council had been<br />

happy to help, to give residents<br />

increased access to the tests.<br />

“Managing the current Omicron<br />

outbreak is a joint effort<br />

and it’s great that we can work<br />

with the district health board to<br />

help support our community,”<br />

Broughton said.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> MP Nicola Grigg said<br />

the new collection point was<br />

great news.<br />

She said she had earlier written<br />

to the health board asking<br />

for facilities in the district, after<br />

constituents had repeatedly been<br />

requesting them.<br />

“Locals are concerned about<br />

needing to drive into the city to<br />

make collections, often waiting<br />

very lengthy times and adding to<br />

the pressure at those sites,” Grigg<br />

said.<br />

“I am very pleased CDHB have<br />

been able to find a suitable site<br />

Sunstrike likely factor in fatal crash<br />

• By Ric Stevens<br />

A CORONER has issued<br />

a warning about sunstrike<br />

after a man drove through an<br />

intersection in blinding earlymorning<br />

sunlight, collided with<br />

another vehicle and was killed.<br />

Coroner Mary-Anne Borrowdale<br />

has released her findings<br />

in the death of 57-year-old<br />

computer engineer Douglas<br />

Benecke, of Rolleston, on July 14,<br />

2020.<br />

Witnesses told the inquest that<br />

the sun was “extremely bright”<br />

in the sky around the time of the<br />

crash, around 8.10am on a fine<br />

and frosty winter morning.<br />

Constable Denise van Asch<br />

said that she had to adjust her<br />

mirror as she drove to the scene,<br />

as the sun behind her vehicle<br />

was shining brightly and causing<br />

glare in her eyes.<br />

Other witnesses that morning<br />

also said that the glare affected<br />

their vision.<br />

Benecke was driving<br />

eastwards towards Christchurch<br />

along <strong>Selwyn</strong> Rd in his blue 2008<br />

Volkswagen Polo. He collided<br />

with a northbound Audi at the<br />

intersection of <strong>Selwyn</strong> Rd and<br />

Springston Rolleston Rd.<br />

Borrowdale said that the sun<br />

rises directly along the line of<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Rd at that time of year.<br />

“The resulting glare could<br />

adversely affect a driver’s vision<br />

when heading east on that road,”<br />

she said.<br />

Both vehicles were in good<br />

mechanical condition. Benecke<br />

was moving at between 52km/h<br />

and 61km/h and the Audi sedan<br />

at around 56km/h. Both roads<br />

were sealed and had an 80km/h<br />

speed limit.<br />

Witnesses said that Benecke<br />

entered the intersection without<br />

slowing down.<br />

He was wearing a seatbelt, but<br />

not sunglasses.<br />

“Mr Benecke’s sun visor in<br />

the driver’s area was lowered<br />

when he crashed. It accordingly<br />

appears that his vision may have<br />

been adversely affected by the<br />

glare from the rising sun,” Borrowdale<br />

said.<br />

Passers-by levered open<br />

Benecke’s car doors and<br />

removed him from the vehicle to<br />

perform CPR, but he died at the<br />

scene from blunt chest trauma<br />

arising from an accidental road<br />

crash.<br />

The Audi driver was not at<br />

fault.<br />

“Sunstrike can occur at any<br />

time of day, but is most common<br />

during sunrise or sunset when<br />

the sun’s rays hit the driver’s<br />

windscreen at a low angle,” Borrowdale<br />

said.<br />

“This can make it difficult, or<br />

even impossible, to see. This is<br />

a very dangerous condition in<br />

which to drive.”<br />

Advice for driving in<br />

sunstrike conditions:<br />

•Be prepared for possible<br />

sunstrike when driving at<br />

sunrise or sunset, especially<br />

when turning or driving<br />

towards the sun.<br />

•Be especially careful in<br />

winter, when sunstrike is<br />

more likely to occur because<br />

the sun is lower in the sky.<br />

•Keep your windscreen<br />

clean, inside and out.<br />

Dust and grime on the<br />

windscreen can make the<br />

effects of sunstrike much<br />

worse.<br />

•Wear sunglasses when<br />

driving with the sun in your<br />

eyes.<br />

•Use your car’s sun visors to<br />

block the sun.<br />

•If you experience sunstrike,<br />

it may be best to pull over<br />

and wait for a few minutes<br />

until your eyes adjust or<br />

visibility improves.<br />

•Early morning and<br />

afternoon are the highestrisk<br />

times, when drivers,<br />

cyclists and pedestrians<br />

should be extra cautious.<br />

•Even if you are not behind<br />

the wheel of a car, be aware<br />

that someone driving<br />

towards you may not be able<br />

to see you.<br />

• From page 1<br />

“I can’t go swimming,<br />

especially if I’m by myself<br />

in the sea because if something<br />

happens I’ve only<br />

got a couple of seconds to<br />

try and get myself in a safe<br />

position.<br />

“If I’m swimming the<br />

defib might kick your heart<br />

back into it, but by then<br />

you could’ve drowned,” he<br />

said.<br />

“It’s the same with biking.<br />

Going uphill isn’t a<br />

problem, you can stop real<br />

quick. Downhill’s the problem<br />

because if something<br />

happens I can’t stop for at<br />

least 11-12 seconds if I’m<br />

going 70-80k an hour.<br />

“The defib will kick in,<br />

but you might have broken<br />

your neck in a crash.”<br />

Fowler survived his first<br />

near-death experience on<br />

February 25 last year, when<br />

he was unresponsive for<br />

eight minutes after fortunately<br />

pulling his van and<br />

trailer over outside West<br />

Rolleston Primary School<br />

as children headed home.<br />

Staff and parents found<br />

him slumped at the wheel<br />

and then combined to perform<br />

CPR and use a defibrillator<br />

before paramedics<br />

arrived.<br />

Fowler eventually<br />

emerged from a medicallyinduced<br />

coma, and suffered<br />

six more cardiac arrests<br />

before he was discharged.<br />

He now relies on a USmade<br />

defibrillator, which<br />

has already brought him<br />

back from the brink twice<br />

since it was installed last<br />

June.<br />

“I was fast asleep one<br />

night at 12.40 (last October)<br />

and when I woke<br />

up I was puffing a bit, I<br />

wondered if I’d had a bad<br />

dream or something,”<br />

Fowler recalled.<br />

“I checked my heart rate,<br />

that was good and I didn’t<br />

think anything of it, I went<br />

back to sleep.”<br />

However, there was a<br />

rude awakening the next<br />

morning when an alarm<br />

sounded at home, prompting<br />

a trip to Christchurch<br />

Hospital, where cardiologists<br />

had analysed the<br />

defibrillator’s data.<br />

“They said: ‘S**t, you’ve<br />

had a full-on cardiac arrest<br />

again’. If I hadn’t had the<br />

defib I’d have died in my<br />

sleep.<br />

“It was really bad because<br />

nobody would have known.<br />

I was by myself, and even if<br />

my partner was there they<br />

probably would have slept<br />

through it.”<br />

The technology, which<br />

measures 33 cubic centimetres,<br />

was also a lifesaver<br />

when Fowler collapsed<br />

during a supermarket visit<br />

three days into <strong>2022</strong>.<br />

No explanation for<br />

near-death experiences<br />

‘MIRACLE’: Former Olympic cyclist Brian Fowler<br />

in hospital last year after a series of cardiac<br />

arrests. He is now cycling again.<br />

‘The defib will kick in,<br />

but you might have<br />

broken your neck in a<br />

crash’<br />

– Brian Fowler<br />

“That time it took three<br />

goes to restart the heart,<br />

then I came to as if nothing<br />

had happened. I went<br />

to hospital and 3-½ hours<br />

later they said: ‘You’re fine,<br />

there’s nothing wrong.<br />

Blood pressure is fine, your<br />

heart is fine, there’s nothing<br />

wrong.”<br />

Medical experts have<br />

been unable to explain why<br />

Fowler has developed potentially<br />

deadly issues after<br />

decades as a supremely fit<br />

athlete, which is obviously<br />

disconcerting.<br />

“Hell yeah it is, but<br />

you’ve just got to get on<br />

with life and do what you<br />

can,” said Fowler, a qualified<br />

electrician who was<br />

rewiring houses in Rangiora<br />

week.<br />

“It’s just being aware of<br />

what might happen.”<br />

AN AERIAL survey of the<br />

Kowai River catchment revealed<br />

a landslip, suspected of causing<br />

turbidity in Springfield’s water<br />

supply.<br />

On Friday the township had<br />

its precautionary boil water<br />

notice, issued on February 5, upgraded<br />

to a full boil water notice<br />

after the discovery of E. Coli in<br />

the supply.<br />

The district council is investigating<br />

the source of the E. Coli,<br />

which has added to Springfield’s<br />

water woes.<br />

Asset manager<br />

water<br />

services Murray<br />

England told<br />

district councillors<br />

at their<br />

meeting last<br />

week staff had<br />

undertaken an<br />

aerial survey of the river catchment<br />

and found a slip.<br />

“Mass loading of sediments<br />

and materials which is now deposited<br />

in to the Kowai River is<br />

causing the ongoing colouration<br />

issues,” England said.<br />

However, Springfield already<br />

had ongoing water quality issues<br />

prior to the discolouration<br />

which started in last year’s May<br />

floods.<br />

The township had one of the<br />

highest levels of treatment in the<br />

district, but also the worst water<br />

quality of rural areas in the<br />

district, he said.<br />

A $2 million to $4 million<br />

membrane treatment system<br />

is being trialled by the district<br />

council, and to date results had<br />

been positive, England said.<br />

This would either be an additional<br />

or replacement system<br />

to the current onsite treatment.<br />

The supply was upgraded in<br />

2017 to include cartridge filtration<br />

followed by UV treatment,<br />

in addition to a previous chlorine<br />

treatment system.<br />

The district council is also<br />

installing a new water reservoir<br />

to be completed in June.<br />

Extra cost at<br />

Foster Park to be<br />

met by ratepayers<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

RATEPAYERS are picking up part<br />

of the tab for an additional $85,000<br />

plus GST for Foster Park’s $4.2<br />

million artificial turfs project.<br />

District councillors approved<br />

the additional funds at their<br />

fortnightly meeting last week, after<br />

questioning senior staff.<br />

Group manager property Douglas<br />

Marshall told them the extra<br />

was required due to a number of<br />

issues encountered during the<br />

project. It would take the cost to<br />

$4,289,858.<br />

Issues included with earthworks<br />

relating to topsoil depth, permeability,<br />

and the presence of a layer<br />

of clay, and fire egress design.<br />

With regard to the latter, design<br />

changes needed to be made to ensure<br />

fire egress requirements could<br />

be met at both the turfs and neighbouring<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Sports Centre.<br />

“In the end they are reasonably<br />

minor items but they do add up financially,<br />

unfortunately,” Marshall<br />

said.<br />

The extra was not budgeted for<br />

in project funding, so would come<br />

from user charges and district<br />

targeted reserve rate.<br />

The project has been on schedule<br />

for completion by the winter sports<br />

season, but the variations required<br />

would likely incur a delay of about<br />

two weeks.<br />

SUBDIVIDE<br />

Many homeowners in urban areas<br />

are now sitting on sections that<br />

are suitable for subdividing. While<br />

some may just see ‘dollar signs’,<br />

we understand it’s more than just<br />

cutting up land to make a buck,<br />

it’s actually about the future of<br />

you and your family and what<br />

you’re looking to achieve.<br />

Maybe your land is your legacy<br />

and the equity is what you will<br />

leave your children, or you have<br />

parents you want to help retire<br />

comfortably. Whatever your<br />

reason, we’re here to listen, and<br />

land use options, to assisting with<br />

THE NINTH annual autumn<br />

exhibition of the Tai Tapu<br />

Sculpture Garden attracted<br />

record crowds and sales during<br />

its opening weekend.<br />

Tai Tapu glass artist Annabel<br />

Menzies-Joyce and husband<br />

Peter Joyce are behind the project,<br />

which sees them open their<br />

garden full of outdoor sculptures<br />

to the public for three weekends<br />

in <strong>March</strong> each year.<br />

Menzies-Joyce said the couple<br />

had wondered how the event<br />

would go in the Covid environment,<br />

but were thrilled to see<br />

such a good turnout, with 800 on<br />

the opening weekend of <strong>March</strong><br />

5 and 6.<br />

At the same time, half of the<br />

about 80 sculptures sold, including<br />

all six of those that Menzies-<br />

Joyce had in the exhibition.<br />

Complying with rules under<br />

the red light setting meant they<br />

could not have more than 100<br />

people at a time, so they increased<br />

their open hours on two<br />

hours each day from last year,<br />

operating 10am-4pm.<br />

Menzies-Joyce believed people<br />

had not only been attracted by<br />

the exceptional works on display,<br />

all catalogued on the garden’s<br />

website, but also by what made<br />

the facility such an attraction<br />

year-round. That was its garden<br />

environment, which they had<br />

dedicated themselves to by planting<br />

native trees over the last 10<br />

years.<br />

“The trees have grown really<br />

well, people feel very relaxed,<br />

they are away from the worries<br />

in the world, everyone just loves<br />

it.”<br />

More than 30 sculptors from<br />

across New Zealand have their<br />

work in the exhibition, alongside<br />

the works in the garden’s permanent<br />

collection, which can be<br />

viewed year round by appointment.<br />

Some of the works are indoor<br />

pieces, and these are displayed<br />

Science teacher up-skills to inspire students<br />

LINCOLN HIGH School science<br />

teacher Willem Tolhoek will<br />

be inspiring his students with<br />

innovative research ideas after a<br />

semester at Lincoln University.<br />

Tolhoek is working alongside<br />

scientists and post-graduate<br />

students from Lincoln<br />

University’s faculty of agriculture<br />

and life sciences.<br />

It is part of the Ministry<br />

of Business, Innovation and<br />

Employment-funded science<br />

teaching leadership programme,<br />

which gives primary and<br />

secondary teachers the<br />

opportunity to enhance how<br />

science is taught.<br />

“I hope to return to school<br />

highly motivated and able to<br />

inspire students and teachers to<br />

be scientifically literate,” he said.<br />

Based in the department<br />

of pest management and<br />

conservation, the ecology<br />

graduate is learning with host<br />

teacher Associate Professor<br />

Adrian Paterson about<br />

research underway at the<br />

university.<br />

Tolhoek said he had been<br />

aware of the leadership<br />

programme for many years, but<br />

finally decided to apply.<br />

He hoped to learn what<br />

could be built into his school<br />

curriculum to “prepare students<br />

to think critically and be able<br />

to participate in a society that<br />

values science.”<br />

He also wants to investigate<br />

how to create a stronger<br />

relationship between the faculty<br />

and Lincoln High School’s<br />

science department.<br />

“I would love to see more of<br />

our local high school students<br />

in and around the university,<br />

learning and participating in<br />

science, with this being extended<br />

out into some local citizen<br />

science projects.”<br />

The Lincoln resident has<br />

taught at his local high school<br />

for 17 years, and is the science<br />

department’s head of learning<br />

area.<br />

“I have a real passion for<br />

the teaching and learning of<br />

science and I try to engage as<br />

many teenagers as possible to<br />

understand the importance of<br />

science in society, and for some<br />

of them to consider further<br />

study and careers in the field,”<br />

Tolhoek said.<br />

I see the parallel car parks are to be<br />

Will these car parks be able to be<br />

used with vehicles towing trailers?<br />

I often use those car parks when<br />

I have a trailer on, and even the vehicle<br />

pictured in the article has a trailer<br />

on.<br />

These parallel car parks play an<br />

important role, used by local tradIes<br />

and businesses who need to tow a<br />

trailer and purchase items while<br />

supporting local businesses.<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

DARFIELD Trinity<br />

Church parishioners have<br />

restored their historic<br />

lychgate, delving into the<br />

structure’s history at the<br />

same time.<br />

Built in 1914, the roofcovered<br />

gateway and<br />

belfry at the churchyard<br />

entranceway needed<br />

structural strengthening<br />

to carry its 260kg bell. It<br />

also needed painting, and<br />

replacement of its cedar<br />

shingles.<br />

Volunteer Paul Jarman<br />

said he had a special interest<br />

in the project, having<br />

a family association going<br />

back generations. While<br />

the renovation was under<br />

way, he had been fascinated<br />

to learn the name of<br />

the bell’s foundry, hidden<br />

beneath more than 100<br />

years of moss and lichen.<br />

It was Mears and Stainbank<br />

of the Whitechapel<br />

Foundry.<br />

One of three main<br />

foundries in England<br />

which supplied church<br />

bells to New Zealand<br />

churches, Whitechapel also<br />

made the famous 13-tonne<br />

Big Ben at Westminster<br />

London and the iconic<br />

Liberty Bell in the United<br />

States.<br />

“When I got onto Google<br />

and had a look at the<br />

foundry that had made<br />

it, it was quite a historic<br />

place,” Jarman said.<br />

He said while many<br />

churches in New Zealand<br />

had a lychgate, it was relatively<br />

unique for them to<br />

incorporate a belfry.<br />

Jarman said his family<br />

association with the<br />

lychgate goes back to its<br />

foundation.<br />

His great great grandfather<br />

James Gough was a<br />

vestry member of St Andrew’s<br />

Anglican Church,<br />

where the lychgate was<br />

originally located. Gough<br />

had been instrumental in<br />

building St Andrew’s and<br />

the lychgate.<br />

Gough’s daughter and<br />

Jarman’s great grandmother<br />

Annie Jarman had carried<br />

on the strong church<br />

tradition. When she lost<br />

two sons in the Great War,<br />

in their memory the family<br />

had donated a stained glass<br />

window for St Andrew’s.<br />

Upon stonework at the<br />

lychgate frontage are two<br />

black iron lanterns, which<br />

were installed in memory<br />

of Annie when she died in<br />

1939.<br />

The lychgate was relocated<br />

from the former St Andrew’s<br />

in 1980, following<br />

Trinity Church being built<br />

as an amalgamation of the<br />

Anglican, Presbyterian<br />

and Methodist parishes.<br />

The donated stained glass<br />

window was also salvaged<br />

from St Andrew’s and installed<br />

in the new church.<br />

Many churches in New<br />

Zealand have a lychgate<br />

as the entry point to the<br />

church, harking back to a<br />

tradition from the Middle<br />

Ages. Most people died at<br />

home; they were placed<br />

on a bier and taken to the<br />

shelter of the lychgate in<br />

preparation for a funeral<br />

service.<br />

In New Zealand, some<br />

were built as a war memorial<br />

and included the<br />

names of those lost.<br />

NEWS 13<br />

Lychgate restoration<br />

reveals bell’s history<br />

PRISTINE: Paul Jarman (inset) says the Trinity<br />

Church lychgate at Darfield has been restored<br />

to its former glory. The foundry which made the<br />

Trinity Church bell is the same as that which<br />

manufactured London’s Big Ben.<br />

Trinity Church is close<br />

to the town’s war memorial<br />

and hosts a church service<br />

each Anzac Day. Attendees<br />

proceed through the lychgate<br />

to the service.<br />

Jarman said St Andrew’s<br />

parishioners had a note<br />

in their church news of<br />

September 1914 about the<br />

lychgate - “The structure<br />

is nearly completed and<br />

looks quite handsome and<br />

dignified,” they wrote.<br />

He said it was once again<br />

looking handsome and<br />

dignified, and would no<br />

doubt make his great great<br />

grandfather and his fellow<br />

early church founders<br />

proud.<br />

Legal Matters<br />

Is New Zealand’s Succession<br />

Law ready for a shake up?<br />

Succession law addresses the<br />

inheritance of a deceased’s property<br />

and has not been updated in New<br />

Zealand for many years.<br />

On 17 November 2021 the Law<br />

Commission completed its review<br />

of succession law. The Report<br />

recommends the repeal of several<br />

statutes and the enactment of the<br />

Inheritance (Claims Against Estates)<br />

Act.<br />

As the law currently stands, close<br />

family members of the deceased can<br />

contest a will by arguing that the<br />

deceased willmaker failed to fulfil<br />

their “moral obligation” to provide for<br />

family members in the will.<br />

A similar claim may also be made<br />

when there is no will and the estate<br />

is distributed under the intestacy<br />

rules in the Administration Act 1969.<br />

Many consider these rules to be<br />

outdated, difficult to follow, and<br />

not in alignment with the increasing<br />

diversity of New Zealand families.<br />

The Law Commission Report<br />

presented two key options for the<br />

Government’s consideration:<br />

1. Firstly, that the deceased’s children<br />

and grandchildren of all ages should<br />

be eligible to claim family provision<br />

if the deceased has unjustly failed to<br />

provide for the child/grandchild in<br />

financial need; or to recognise the<br />

child or grandchild.<br />

2. The second option provides that<br />

only the deceased’s children under<br />

25 years of age or those who are<br />

disabled would be eligible to claim.<br />

The law generally only empowers<br />

the court to make awards from the<br />

property of the estate. Of interest<br />

to many readers may be that the<br />

Law Commission has recommended<br />

the court should have the power to<br />

recover property to satisfy awards<br />

against an estate where:<br />

1. the property has been disposed<br />

of to defeat an entitlement or claim<br />

against an estate; or<br />

2. the property is a deceased’s joint<br />

tenancy interest that has accrued<br />

to the surviving joint tenant(s) when<br />

the deceased has died with the effect<br />

of defeating an entitlement or claim<br />

against an estate.<br />

The power to recover property would<br />

assist excluded family members<br />

where the deceased has settled<br />

property onto trust to benefit certain<br />

individuals of their choosing, and to<br />

exclude others that might otherwise<br />

have a claim under the existing<br />

Family Protection Act.<br />

The Government is now considering<br />

the Report. If the Law Commission’s<br />

recommendations are accepted, new<br />

legislation will be drafted, and this will<br />

embark on its usual process through<br />

Parliament.<br />

BEN HOPE has only been<br />

training since the start of the<br />

year but he is quickly racking up<br />

the wins.<br />

He chalked his third training<br />

victory at just his fifth start at<br />

Addington Raceway on Friday<br />

when Refine took out the XCM<br />

Sport Team Teal Drivers Challenge<br />

Mare Mobile Pace (1980m).<br />

Off a hot speed driver Natalie<br />

Rasmussen sent her charge forward<br />

at the bell to take control of<br />

the race.<br />

They continued to keep an<br />

honest pace upfront and pinched<br />

a lead on their rivals turning<br />

for home where Refine was able<br />

to run away to a 3-1/2 length<br />

AN UNBEATEN century by<br />

Harrison Darling gave Cheviot<br />

an inspired must-win over<br />

Weedons at the weekend to<br />

secure their spot in country<br />

cricket’s semi-finals.<br />

This weekend’s semis are now<br />

locked in for the 45-over CRV<br />

hosting Cheviot, and Leeston-<br />

victory over Manhattan, with from Invercargill and it was one<br />

a further head back to Arden’s of the coolest moments of my<br />

“I am really rapt. I watched it Hope was in Invercargill<br />

At Weedons Domain on<br />

Saturday, the home side elected<br />

to make first use of the conditions,<br />

with Canterbury rep Blake<br />

Coburn getting them off to a<br />

flying start, smashing 32 runs off<br />

27 balls.<br />

Weedons got handy contributions<br />

throughout its batting<br />

order, led by top-scorer James<br />

Watson (56 off 75), and headed<br />

into the change of innings confident<br />

they could defend 224.<br />

And when they had Cheviot<br />

reeling at 47/3, they felt they<br />

hand the game under control.<br />

But enter Darling. The<br />

Magpies’ batsman has had a<br />

breakout season, and teaming<br />

up with Angus Sidey (55 off 65),<br />

ruthlessly put the game beyond<br />

reach.<br />

He raised his bat for an unbeaten<br />

100 and led his team off<br />

for a fine six-wicket win, securing<br />

their spot in the semis.<br />

At Sefton Park, the Sefton<br />

Seals made short work of visiting<br />

Lincoln, knocking off an easy<br />

seven-wicket win.<br />

Right-arm paceman Micah<br />

The horse finished second.<br />

Refine took a last start fourth<br />

placing into the race and Hope<br />

was confident she could upstage<br />

a couple of her more fancied<br />

rivals.<br />

“I was reasonably confident,<br />

but I couldn’t label her as it was a<br />

nice field,” he said.<br />

“I just thought a couple of<br />

those favourites had question<br />

marks hanging over them, so<br />

I thought she was a chance of<br />

upsetting them. To win like she<br />

did was a pleasant surprise.”<br />

recruit of the season Amandep<br />

with 63 off just 34 balls.<br />

Oxford-Rangiora were<br />

decimated by Covid-19 and were<br />

forced to default against Leeston-<br />

Southbridge on Saturday.<br />

However, it was even worse<br />

news for Southbrook, with the<br />

2011/12 champions having<br />

struggled for numbers for the<br />

past few seasons, pulling out of<br />

this year’s competition.<br />

her up in a fortnight.<br />

“We will see what happens,<br />

we might get a couple of offers<br />

for her now,” he said. “We will<br />

look to race her in a fortnight if<br />

nothing comes of selling her.”<br />

Hope has been pleased<br />

with the start of his training<br />

career and said he will continue<br />

to focus on a small but select<br />

team.<br />

“It has been good but I have<br />

only been training one horse and<br />

I have been very selective on who<br />

I train,” he said.<br />

“I have been pretty lucky<br />

to have the horsepower and I<br />

certainly had the driving power<br />

pretty lucky.”<br />

TACTICS: A flying start put BJ Lindenny in a good position to take out the<br />

Inangahua Grey Valley Cup on Sunday.<br />

BJ Lindenny relishes<br />

grass in cup win<br />

• By Joshua Smith<br />

RODGER Austin went<br />

home with the perfect<br />

result on Sunday.<br />

The Weedons trainer<br />

took only one starter, BJ<br />

Lindenny, to the Westport<br />

meeting at Rangiora and<br />

took out the Inangahua<br />

Grey Valley Cup (2600m).<br />

The seven-year-old<br />

gelding made a flying<br />

start from his 20m<br />

handicap to take up an<br />

early lead before driver<br />

Blair Orange elected to<br />

hand up to Prince Teka.<br />

BJ Lindenny lost the<br />

trail position to Escargo<br />

at the bell, with the Kevin<br />

Townley-trained runner<br />

dropping back after<br />

entering a speed duel<br />

with the leader down the<br />

straight.<br />

Orange sat patiently<br />

three back on the fence<br />

for the last lap and he was<br />

able to find some space up<br />

the passing lane where BJ<br />

Lindenny was able to<br />

scoot up and secure a half<br />

neck victory over Boyz<br />

Invasion.<br />

Austin was rapt to get<br />

back into the winner’s<br />

circle with his charge.<br />

“He went well,” Austin<br />

said.<br />

“He has been working<br />

well and is looking well.<br />

He is in a good space at the<br />

moment, I am pleased with<br />

him.”<br />

BJ Lindenny’s last start<br />

eighth placing at Methven<br />

broke a string of placings<br />

for the gelding, but Austin<br />

was still pleased with the<br />

run.<br />

“He went a good race, we<br />

were pleased with him,”<br />

he said. “He was off 30m<br />

and he went 3:10 for a mile<br />

and a half on the grass, so<br />

it was a good run really.<br />

Only the winner went<br />

quicker.”<br />

The Majestic Son gelding<br />

has now won two and<br />

placed in three of his nine<br />

starts this season and<br />

Austin said he took a lot of<br />

benefit from his trip up to<br />

Nelson at the start of the<br />

year.<br />

“He is trying really hard<br />

now,” Austin said.<br />

“ He has done really<br />

well since we took him<br />

Rolleston Drive upgrade progressing<br />

The upgrade of Rolleston Drive and the Rolleston Drive Tennyson Street intersection has reached a<br />

new milestone with the next stage of works starting this weekend.<br />

Isaac Construction Limited is making good progress with the road construction and resurfacing stage<br />

of the project set to begin.<br />

In the past couple of weeks, progress has been made in completing the piping of the stock water race<br />

on Tennyson Street from the Rolleston Police Station to Bronte Way, completing work on installing<br />

underground services and foundations for the new traffic lights, kerb and channel, median islands and<br />

sections of footpath on Rolleston Drive and Tennyson Street.<br />

The next step will be night works in the intersection to complete a full road reconstruction through the<br />

intersection, which can only be done with the intersection closed. The night works will happening from<br />

Sunday 20 <strong>March</strong> for two weeks (weather permitting), with the intersection closed from 9pm to 6am.<br />

Detours will be in place during the hours the intersection is closed overnight and access to the<br />

Tennyson Street and Rolleston Drive shops and shopping centre car parking will be restricted<br />

overnight at various stages.<br />

During the daytime the one-way system on Rolleston Drive (westbound towards the community<br />

centre) and Tennyson Street (northbound towards the SH1) will remain in place.<br />

The final work will see a new lane layout, traffic lights and better access for pedestrians and cyclists<br />

through the intersection, new footpaths, cycleways and lighting along both roads. A new slow speed<br />

zone on Rolleston Drive around the entrance to the Rolleston Town Centre is also being built with new<br />

median islands and trees.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Rapid<br />

Antigen Testing<br />

site open<br />

A community Rapid Antigen Test<br />

(RAT) pick up point is now open in<br />

Rolleston.<br />

The new Rolleston site is open on<br />

Factory Drive off Iport Drive in the<br />

IPort industrial area and will be open<br />

Monday to Friday from 11am – 7pm,<br />

and from 10am – 4pm on Saturday<br />

and Sunday until further notice.<br />

If approaching from Christchurch<br />

on the motorway, exit at Weedons<br />

Interchange and take the overpass onto Weedons Rd and then turn<br />

left into Jones Road. Follow Jones Road until you reach Hoskyns<br />

Road and then turn right. Proceed to the second roundabout and<br />

turn right into Iport Drive. Follow the signs and you will see Factory<br />

Drive on your left.<br />

“Thank you to the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council for providing this site and<br />

continued support. We are continuing to work through the rollout of<br />

RAT collection sites,” says Tracey Maisey, ECC Incident Controller,<br />

Canterbury DHB.<br />

Mayor Sam Broughton says the Council is happy to help by<br />

providing a <strong>Selwyn</strong> site which will make it much easier for locals to<br />

collect their tests.<br />

“Managing the current Omicron outbreak is a joint effort and it’s<br />

great that we can work with the District Health Board to help support<br />

our community.”<br />

To help speed things up at all RAT collection sites please remember<br />

to place your order for RATs before heading to a collection site – and<br />

have your order number at the ready.<br />

Orders can be made via the online system at https://requestrats.<br />

covid19.health.nz/or by free calling 0800 222 478 to request your<br />

RAT tests.<br />

RATs are free for:<br />

• People with COVID-19 symptoms or who are a household contact<br />

or who have been instructed to get tested by a health official<br />

• Critical workers who are household contacts<br />

• Border workers who are required to be tested under the Required<br />

Testing Order.<br />

Autumn tips for looking after your home<br />

For most of us our home is our biggest single investment, so it makes sense to protect it by carrying out<br />

regular maintenance. Our building team provides seasonal advice to help you keep on top of maintaining<br />

your home.<br />

Autumn is a great time to have a tidy up around your property, prune trees and shrubs, and collect<br />

up leaves and turn them into compost. While you’re picking up leaves don’t forget to clean out your<br />

spouting, which gets filled up with leaves and other wind-blown debris at this time of year. This will<br />

ensure you are ready for winter rain. And if you don’t want to do this job each year, consider fitting leaf<br />

guards to your spouting.<br />

Also check that driveway sumps and drainage channels are clear of leaves and other blockages.<br />

With the change of season, it is timely to check the batteries in your smoke alarms and test the alarms.<br />

If you find they are not working, buy replacements and get them fitted without delay – your life could<br />

depend on it.<br />

Always make sure you buy good quality smoke alarms with a test button so that you can regularly check<br />

that they are still functioning to protect your family.<br />

If you’re fitting new detectors here’s some simple rules to follow:<br />

• Ensure they are either located in all bedrooms or within 3m of bedroom doors so that they can be<br />

heard at the bed head<br />

• They are best installed flat on the ceiling at the highest point and at least 300mm away from wall/<br />

ceiling junctions<br />

• If you have a two storey house, ensure you have an alarm located at the top of the stairwell<br />

• Don’t install detectors in the kitchen or next to log burners where the will regularly trigger false alarms<br />

• If your smoke alarms are hard wired into your security system, follow the security system manual<br />

instructions on how to test them – this is usually easily done with a magnet<br />

Learn Earn Grow <strong>Selwyn</strong> expanding<br />

A month of events supporting <strong>Selwyn</strong> employers, employees and those looking to get into work is<br />

expanding with new sessions added for this week.<br />

Learn Earn Grow <strong>Selwyn</strong> has seen the Council partner with employment, business and community<br />

groups to run seminars, workshops and other events offering advice and support for people at all stages<br />

of their employment from those looking for a job, to people looking to hire, or grow their business.<br />

With several workshops already sold out and tickets going quickly for others the Council has worked with<br />

these partners to add three more sessions to the month’s events. The three online sessions will cover<br />

COVID support, digital marketing and adapting customer service to the current climate.<br />

The additional events will kick off today (18 <strong>March</strong>) with a session by the Ministry of Social Development<br />

and Connected NZ designed to help navigate and provide information on what is available for small<br />

businesses and job seekers during these challenging times with COVID.<br />

They will be followed by sessions on Friday with A.P.E Consulting covering why we need to adapt our<br />

ideas of customer service and how it works for your customers, while Digital Boost will bring practical<br />

tips for upskilling in the digital space.<br />

ime to tidy up and prepare for winter<br />

BACKYARD CRITTERS<br />

HARDY: If you want winter lettuce now is the time to get the plants into the soil. Stagger<br />

MARCH IS a busy month in the<br />

garden with the final harvesting<br />

of summer crops and preparation<br />

for your winter garden begins.<br />

After the weird weather here<br />

through January and February,<br />

let’s hope the rest of <strong>March</strong> will<br />

bring more settled conditions for<br />

gardening.<br />

The last of summer vegetable<br />

crops are ready to harvest. Do a<br />

general tidy up and remove any<br />

finished or diseased crops and<br />

weeds etc before you begin preparation<br />

of your winter garden.<br />

Soil plays an important part in<br />

growing healthy strong plants, so<br />

always prepare the soil that you<br />

will grow your vegetables in well.<br />

Enrich and aerate it by digging<br />

in plenty of compost a week or<br />

two before planting. Check drainage<br />

is adequate for the wet winter<br />

months and when planting out,<br />

rotate the site for your vegetables.<br />

By rotating where crops are<br />

planted, you can manage the soil<br />

nutrient balance. The benefit of<br />

crop rotation is that as one plant<br />

depletes the soil of certain nutrients,<br />

the next plant will replenish<br />

the soil as it grows.<br />

Winter vegetables can now be<br />

planted – either with young seedlings<br />

or by sowing seed directly<br />

into the garden.<br />

Vegetables such as beetroot,<br />

broccoli, brussells sprouts, cabbage,<br />

cauliflower, carrots, lettuce,<br />

onions, radish, silver beet, spin-<br />

planting for a steady supply.<br />

ach, swedes and turnips. Stagger<br />

your plantings so you have<br />

a steady supply over the season.<br />

Apply side dressings of fertiliser<br />

every four to six weeks throughout<br />

the growing period (depending<br />

on what you grow and how<br />

often you water your garden)<br />

to help keep plants in optimum<br />

health.<br />

Flowering annuals that flourish<br />

in the heat and long days of summer<br />

are now nearing the end of<br />

their season.<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Some species will continue<br />

flowering well into April, but in<br />

general, it is time to remove old<br />

plants and thoroughly prepare<br />

sites for your winter displays.<br />

Winter flowering annuals are<br />

a wonderful way to add colour<br />

to the garden during the colder<br />

months.<br />

Some varieties are; aquilegias,<br />

alyssum calendulas, cinerarias,<br />

cornflowers, lobelias, nemesia,<br />

pansy, primulas, snapdragons,<br />

statice, stock, sweet william, wall<br />

flower and violas.<br />

Planting of bulbs should be<br />

completed by the end of the<br />

month in colder parts of New<br />

Zealand. Their blooms will be a<br />

welcome sight after a long dreary<br />

winter.<br />

Prepare the sites well for your<br />

new bulbs by adding compost<br />

and ensure there is enough drainage.<br />

Think about the final effect<br />

you want to achieve from your<br />

bulbs come spring, for instance,<br />

bulbs planted in clusters produce<br />

a more dramatic display.<br />

Bulbs to plant in <strong>March</strong> include<br />

anemone, daffodil, hyacinth,<br />

freesia, ranunculus, Ixia, lachenalia,<br />

sparaxis, tritonia, tulip and<br />

watsonias.<br />

It’s a great month for apples and<br />

pears with many varieties ripening.<br />

Gold queen peach (the last<br />

of the peaches to ripen) is mature<br />

on trees now. In early <strong>March</strong>, in<br />

warmer areas, passionfruit will<br />

be ripening – pick from the vines<br />

or collect off the ground as they<br />

turn purple. Stone fruit trees that<br />

have finished cropping can now<br />

be pruned to remove old and<br />

crowded branches, retaining wellspaced,<br />

new season growth for<br />

next year’s fruit.<br />

Once the weather has settled<br />

and regular autumn rains have<br />

arrived, the laying of new lawns<br />

and/or the renovation of existing<br />

lawns can begin. As with most<br />

tasks in the garden, preparation<br />

is the key to success. Always<br />

check the quality of the top soil<br />

you bring on to your property to<br />

avoid a new lawn full of seeds.<br />

Use bagged products for<br />

smaller spaces. One of the top tips<br />

for getting a superior year-round<br />

lawn is sowing a mixture of lawn<br />

seed.<br />

With existing lawns, feed with<br />

fertiliser and water it in well.<br />

Mow your lawn regularly to<br />

encourage strong, healthy grass<br />

growth.<br />

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other<br />

invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at<br />

Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living<br />

things around us. Check out the full list of invertebrates found at www.inaturalist.org/<br />

projects/backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section<br />

IN 1987 the famous American<br />

biologist Edward O Wilson coined<br />

the phrase: “The little things that<br />

run the world,” with reference<br />

to the ecological importance of<br />

invertebrates as movers and<br />

shakers.<br />

THeir sheer mass puts other fauna<br />

into insignificance.<br />

For example, each hectare in the<br />

Amazon rainforest contains one<br />

billion invertebrates. One of the<br />

most abundant insects contributing<br />

to this numerical dominance are<br />

the springtails, or Collembola. They<br />

occur from Antarctica to the tropics<br />

and more than 6000 species have<br />

been described worldwide.<br />

New Zealand has over 240 Collembola<br />

species and many more are<br />

yet to be described by entomologists.<br />

Most springtails are 2-3mm long<br />

and are found in soil or dead bark<br />

where they breakdown organic<br />

matter.<br />

They get their common name<br />

because most springtails contain an<br />

abdominal appendage called a furca<br />

that can propel them 10-15mm<br />

when jumping.<br />

The common introduced garden<br />

springtail (Bourletiella hortensis) is<br />

found throughout New Zealand and<br />

is globular shaped, brown coloured<br />

and only 1mm long.<br />

It can be a pest of brassica<br />

seedlings, causing scalloping to leaf<br />

will be able to cross the border for the <strong>2022</strong><br />

dairy season.<br />

A new class exception allows 300<br />

international dairy workers to enter New<br />

Zealand. Employers can apply through<br />

DairyNZ for nomination and have a class<br />

exception visa granted by Immigration<br />

New Zealand. The previous class exception<br />

allowed 200 dairy workers to enter New<br />

Zealand and had been partially filled.<br />

For both class exceptions, workers were<br />

able to enter New Zealand from <strong>March</strong> 5th.<br />

Federated Farmers has worked with the<br />

Ministry for Social Development for over<br />

a year to attract more than 525 people<br />

to work in the sector through the www.<br />

getkiwisonfarm.nz programme.<br />

“Farms are short thousands of staff<br />

and with continued low domestic<br />

unemployment, workers from overseas are<br />

the only option to plug the gaps in many<br />

parts of New Zealand,” Federated Farmers<br />

National Board member and immigration<br />

spokesperson Chris Lewis said.<br />

“Many dairy farms are desperate to get<br />

teams back up to strength prior to calving<br />

and today’s announcement will provide a<br />

measure of relief.”<br />

Lewis said industry, farmers and the<br />

government had done all they could to<br />

attract and retain Kiwi workers in the<br />

industry but the need for international<br />

labour remained.<br />

“If we want Kiwis to see an attractive<br />

future in the industry and to stop burning<br />

out our existing workers, we need the<br />

right number of people to staff our farms.<br />

Every employer wants to offer a favourable<br />

work roster and more days off, but<br />

without enough people to employ this isn’t<br />

possible,” he said.<br />

Lewis reminded farm employers to use<br />

the industry-leading Federated Farmers<br />

employment contracts, DairyNZ job<br />

descriptions, management advice and team<br />

building resources “and to promote the<br />

great housing, modern work rosters and no<br />

travel costs to work that we offer with jobs<br />

on our farms”.<br />

Every industry that relied on an<br />

international workforce was crying out for<br />

workers during Covid restrictions.<br />

“Federated Farmers has advocated<br />

strongly and consistently for the<br />

agricultural sector, now it is up to the<br />

farmers to fill these exception spots,” Lewis<br />

said.<br />

More than a Nutrient<br />

Management tool<br />

Nutrient losses due to leaching<br />

commonly occurs when soils are wet<br />

and draining, often after summer crops<br />

have been harvested heading into winter.<br />

Cover or catch crops are often used as<br />

a mitigation tool for nitrate leaching,<br />

however the challenge is to plant a crop<br />

which actively grows during the wetter and<br />

colder months.<br />

Cates recently introduced WinterMax<br />

T100 Triticale to the market. WinterMax<br />

T100 was developed by the team at Plant<br />

Research (NZ) and Grasslanz Technology<br />

to fit a need in the dairy sector for a catch<br />

crop that can be sown in autumn/winter<br />

and can rapidly accumulate dry matter<br />

over the winter period.<br />

Forage trials sown in April evaluating<br />

dry matter production, comparing oat and<br />

triticale, showed that WinterMax T100<br />

produced 1350 kg DM/ha, whereas the oat<br />

varieties only produced 528 kg DM/ha 80<br />

days after planting.<br />

WinterMax T100’s deep root system gives<br />

this variety excellent nutrient scavenging<br />

ability and it offers superior early vigour<br />

when compared to similar catch crops<br />

such as oats and wheat. WinterMax T100<br />

also offers a highly nutritious early spring<br />

forage supplement by retaining green leaf<br />

throughout winter.<br />

Results of field trials show positive<br />

results in terms of nitrogen uptake. In<br />

trials comparing WinterMax T100 with<br />

Doubletake Triticale, Milton Oat, and<br />

Torch Wheat it was found that WinterMax<br />

T100 was the only variety where Kg/<br />

Ha nitrogen removed at the final harvest<br />

exceeded the total Nitrogen applied<br />

(Mineral N + applied N)<br />

option for reducing nitrogen contact<br />

Electric Audi the silent slayer<br />

SOME OF MY most memorable<br />

driving experiences have been in<br />

Audi’s performance cars.<br />

If you add together the fabulous<br />

five-cylinder turbo Quattro<br />

coupe, the RS’ with those freerevving<br />

V8s, and S8 and R8/V10<br />

then you’d have to say I’ve been<br />

very lucky to have been behind<br />

the wheel of those high power<br />

petrol engines.<br />

Well, today’s performance<br />

car from the Audi stable is no<br />

longer confined to petrol engines.<br />

Audi has joined the electric<br />

revolution and it’s fair to say the<br />

RS e-tron GT in every sense of<br />

the word is a true performance<br />

car, and it needs to be wearing<br />

the RennSport badge, which<br />

loosely translated means racing<br />

sport.<br />

However, the e-tron GT has<br />

style and practicality on its side<br />

as well, it has a trendy coupe-type<br />

design along with four-doors,<br />

well five if you take into account<br />

the rear liftback. Incidentally,<br />

there is a wealth of cargo space<br />

under the liftback, and if you fill<br />

that up there’s also a small cargo<br />

compartment under the front<br />

bonnet.<br />

Inside, the RS e-tron GT is<br />

laid out sporty but comfortable,<br />

the seats are body gripping,<br />

and being a large car space is<br />

generous. It sits low on the road<br />

(1.4m) which means you do have<br />

to fold yourself in a little on entry,<br />

and getting out does tax the hips<br />

a bit if they are well worn like<br />

mine.<br />

Nevertheless, that’s a small<br />

price to pay, for the RS e-tron<br />

is a sports car of true genius,<br />

and five years ago I never would<br />

have thought I’d be saying things<br />

like that about an electric car.<br />

Audi has grasped technology by<br />

the scruff of the neck and has<br />

built a simply amazing sports car<br />

that goes every bit as well as it<br />

looks.<br />

Take the figures, for example,<br />

the RS e-tron GT has power<br />

outputs of 440kW and 830Nm,<br />

channelled immediately through a<br />

two-speed gearbox to two motors,<br />

one up front and one over the rear<br />

axle, giving the car a Quattro-type<br />

feel through four-wheel-drive. A<br />

3.3sec claim to make 100km/h<br />

from a standstill makes it one of<br />

the fastest cars I’ve driven, and its<br />

acceleration doesn’t wilt until it<br />

reaches 250km/h (not that I drove<br />

that fast).<br />

These are most impressive<br />

speeds for a car that weighs<br />

in at over 2.2-tonne, yet the<br />

amazing statistics don’t end<br />

there. Audi claims a 472km<br />

driving range; of course, that’s<br />

best possible usage and factors<br />

that must be considered such<br />

as air temperature, the number<br />

of occupants, a steady throttle<br />

FLOWING: The RS e-tron GT’ is a big car at almost 5m but<br />

it feels constantly sporty.<br />

AUDI RS e-tron GT: Fully electric performance car with a 3.3sec time to make 100km/h<br />

from a standstill.<br />

application, flat roads and little<br />

wind resistance<br />

However, I have to report<br />

that during my time with the<br />

evaluation car, diminishing<br />

battery levels was never a<br />

consideration. It was at full<br />

capacity when I picked up the<br />

vehicle, and even with just a little<br />

bit of trickle charging using the<br />

domestic supply cable (three-pin)<br />

there was never a point where I<br />

was worried about its range.<br />

For the record, Audi also claim<br />

a 5min charge from a designated<br />

charge port will glean you 100km<br />

in distance, while a 23min charge<br />

will see the batteries reach 80<br />

per cent maximum from five per<br />

cent.<br />

For me, though, the RS<br />

e-tron was all about the driving<br />

experience, it moves like a rocket<br />

when the accelerator is depressed,<br />

there are several drive modes, one<br />

that can be tailored individually.<br />

Acceleration is clean, smooth<br />

and, of course, fast.<br />

There’s one other factor<br />

that must be mentioned and<br />

that is the sound, well lack of<br />

it really, the electric whine is<br />

constantly prevalent, but it’s just<br />

background noise, it is far from<br />

overbearing and quite tuneful<br />

to listen to. If you get feisty with<br />

the accelerator there is a louder<br />

$273,550<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

two-speed automatic<br />

• Performance – 0-100km/h,<br />

3.3sec<br />

sound that increases through<br />

interior and exterior speakers<br />

but even then it is well subdued.<br />

It’s fair to say though that if you<br />

want a hurricane type sound<br />

on acceleration that can be<br />

engineered into the car.<br />

Our long straight roads make<br />

it difficult to get a feel for the RS<br />

e-tron’s handling, but there are a<br />

few corners which suited it near<br />

Coes Ford. Because it sits low<br />

there is little body movement,<br />

and with huge 21in wheels and<br />

tyres that wouldn’t be out of place<br />

on a formula one car, the e-tron<br />

sits wonderfully composed in a<br />

corner with direct turn-in and no<br />

movement off-line. It is superbly<br />

accurate and a joy to guide<br />

through a corner.<br />

Of course, when you apply<br />

throttle out of a corner, it<br />

simply grips up and charges like<br />

a dynamo to the next; midrange<br />

acceleration is simply<br />

invigorating. And when it<br />

comes time to slow down for<br />

the next corner, huge brakes<br />

offer high pedal feel and intense<br />

deceleration.<br />

To be fair, I didn’t drive the RS<br />

e-tron GT to anywhere near its<br />

potential, for one I didn’t want to<br />

risk my licence, while for another<br />

it is a car that deserves respect<br />

with its $273,500 price tag. The<br />

evaluation car was also carrying<br />

a few extra goodies that added<br />

almost another $10k to that<br />

figure.<br />

That’s a big outlay but I can<br />

report you get a lot of car and<br />

a lot of specification, it has<br />

everything the modern car<br />

buyer would want and it simply<br />

fits like a glove, everything is<br />

intuitive.<br />

If you want to join the electric<br />

revolution but want performance<br />

as well, then that is the market<br />

Audi is looking for. They’ve<br />

even made it easy if the price<br />

tag heading toward $300k is<br />

prohibitive, there’s a non RS<br />

model that sits at just below<br />

$200k. Its performance is just as<br />

inviting, it misses out on little to<br />

the racing sport variant and looks<br />

just as exciting.<br />

Designed with distinction in mind!<br />

When our vendors embarked on building their own home, they<br />

decided not only to build something unique, but to enjoy the process,<br />

hence, they chose bespoke over generic and this clearly shows in every<br />

inch of both design and construction. This elegant home is comprised<br />

of 3 bedrooms, 1 generous office and 2 exquisitely tiled bathrooms<br />

that are beautifully appointed plus stunning polished concrete floors<br />

with underfloor heating throughout the living spaces. The home is<br />

built with cedar and a stunning large black brick which adds instant<br />

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Space and light<br />

features of show home<br />

The first two features you notice when<br />

you enter the Faye Homes show home at<br />

10 Thornborough Drive in Rolleston is<br />

space and light.<br />

Full length windows and sliding doors<br />

surround the living/kitchen/dining area<br />

with skylights adding the feeling of even<br />

more space. Bathed in natural light this<br />

open plan area takes up half the length<br />

of the home and there is also a separate<br />

lounge area for quieter times.<br />

Opening off the living area is a patio<br />

with louvred roof offering an outdoor<br />

space year round.<br />

With central heating and double glazing<br />

throughout, all the fittings and fixtures are<br />

top quality with push open doors in the<br />

kitchen providing a sleek and sophisticated<br />

profile.<br />

A stand-out feature in the hallway is a<br />

long window seat looking out on to the<br />

garden with drawers underneath for added<br />

storage. This home boasts four double<br />

bedrooms with a separate study near the<br />

front entrance making it perfect for those<br />

wanting to work from home.<br />

Although occupying the same space,<br />

both the main bathroom and ensuite have<br />

separate toilet, sink and shower so more<br />

than one person can be in the space at one<br />

time.<br />

Faye Homes is a small Christchurch-based<br />

company that started out as friends helping<br />

friends and family to build their own<br />

homes. To them reputation is everything<br />

and building a relationship between the<br />

client and their small team of professional<br />

consultants to offers flexible house planning<br />

– and a personal quality guarantee.<br />

Next-door to four bedroom (279 square<br />

metres) home at 10 Thornborough Drive is<br />

a smaller three bedroom home (188 square<br />

metres) offering some other options for<br />

Faye Homes new builds. They are open<br />
