Successful Sea2Sky challenge<br />

Iconic<br />

tug<br />

‘banished’<br />

to cruise<br />

ship berth<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

REDCLIFFS BUILDER Brad<br />

Richards (above) was not just<br />

a sideline supporter in the<br />

gruelling Sea2Sky Challenge on<br />

Sunday.<br />

Richards, who is the naming<br />

rights sponsor, finished the<br />

17km run challenge in <strong>16</strong>th<br />

place out of 48 contestants.<br />

The climb up the Scarborough<br />

Hill steps in the final leg<br />

of the challenge on Sunday was<br />

frequently referred to as “killer”<br />

as athletes crossed the finish<br />

line.<br />

There were 235 finishers,<br />

with more than 15 per cent<br />

of entries lost due to Covid-19<br />

in the days leading up to the<br />

event.<br />

With strict Covid protocols<br />

in place, athletes from around<br />

Canterbury were greeted by<br />

calmer seas than earlier in the<br />

week for the 750m swim off<br />

Scarborough Beach.<br />

The athletes then rode to the<br />

top of the Summit Rd, past Mt<br />

Pleasant, before turning back to<br />

finish at Godley Head.<br />

The final leg of the triathlon<br />

was a trail run to Taylors<br />

Mistake followed by the climb<br />

over Scarborough Hill.<br />

As well as the full triathlon,<br />

there was a 17km run, junior<br />

triathlon, try a triathlon, and a<br />

kids challenge.<br />

Olympian and Commonwealth<br />

Games medallist Andrea Hansen<br />

(nee Hewitt) won the women’s<br />

race and Commonwealth Games<br />

hopeful Saxon Morgan won<br />

the men’s.<br />

TUG LYTTELTON supporters<br />

want the vessel moved to its<br />

original berth, amid a claim it has<br />

been “banished” to the “naughty<br />

corner.”<br />

Naval architect Harry Stronach<br />

wants the vessel relocated to<br />

the berth beside the Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> ferry. The vessel is<br />

currently berthed at the cruise<br />

ship terminal in Lyttelton.<br />

“It has been sent to the naughty<br />

corner for some reason, but we’re<br />

not clear on the reasons,” said<br />

Stronach.<br />

The location change was made<br />

around six months ago.<br />

Stronach, whose company does<br />

the surveys and approvals for the<br />

tug, spoke to the Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board at its meeting<br />

on Monday.<br />

He highlighted issues the tug is<br />

facing, including berthage, public<br />

accessibility, and the future of the<br />

vessel.<br />

Stronach said it was “banished”<br />

there by the Lyttelton Port<br />

Company.<br />

Former Godley House site<br />

open for tender until June<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

BRINGING together multiple<br />

parties to collectively develop a<br />

hospitality site for Godley House<br />

is what Scott Winter is hoping to<br />

achieve.<br />

Last week, the city council<br />

issued tender documents, giving<br />

interested business people until<br />

June 7 to lodge proposals for the<br />

site.<br />

Winter, a<br />

Banks Peninsula<br />

Community<br />

Board member,<br />

is meeting with<br />

several different<br />

parties this week<br />

Scott<br />

Winter<br />

on the historic<br />

site.<br />

“I asked for<br />

anyone that wishes to get behind<br />

a local proposal to get in touch<br />

and the response has been promising,”<br />

said Winter.<br />

He said there has been interest<br />

in the development both locally<br />

and from further afield.<br />

“[There has been] many<br />

offers for services from local<br />

professionals; however, there<br />

has not been one single entity<br />

that has communicated to me<br />

that they have the motivation,<br />

funding and resource to put<br />

together a tender,” Winter said.<br />

In 2019, the city council held<br />

a public consultation with<br />

community members, including<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> School,<br />

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

NEW LIFE: Proposals for use of the former Godley House<br />

site are open for tender until June 7.<br />

residents and local businesses,<br />

asking what they would like to<br />

see on the site.<br />

Feedback was diverse but<br />

an overarching theme was<br />

the desire to have somewhere<br />

to socialise, with 132 people<br />

specifically requesting a licenced<br />

hospitality venue.<br />

Recent posts on the Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> community Facebook<br />

page show residents are clearly<br />

frustrated with how long the<br />

process is taking.<br />

Winter said he felt similar<br />

frustrations, but thought<br />

progress was now being made.<br />

Godley House was built as<br />

a home in the 1880s. In later<br />

years it was as used as a hotel,<br />

restaurant and conference centre.<br />

It is a landmark site in<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong>, and an area<br />

with considerable historical<br />

and cultural value in the<br />

development of Banks Peninsula.<br />

The building was damaged<br />

in the earthquakes and later<br />

demolished.<br />

“When Godley House was<br />

damaged in the earthquakes,<br />

it wasn’t just this community<br />

and local businesses that lost a<br />

special place but the whole of<br />

New Zealand.<br />

“Generations to come deserve<br />

to have a place to enjoy and<br />

Christchurch City deserves<br />

another unique destination,”<br />

Winter said.<br />

FRIDAY’S FIRE CAUSED BY<br />

RUBBISH BURN<br />

a fire under control in Duvauchelle<br />

on Friday. The Akaroa Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade was called to a fire<br />

just after 7pm near Pawsons Valley<br />

blown downhill from a rubbish<br />

burn. Akaroa chief fire officer<br />

Mark Thomsen said the direction<br />

of the wind was in their favour. The<br />

chopper dropped three monsoon<br />

buckets while firefighters worked<br />

on the ground. The fire was under<br />

control by dark.<br />

Sense of loyalty keeps fire chief turning<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News<br />

continues its series on<br />

our fire chiefs. Reporter<br />

Kristie Boland talks<br />

to Governors <strong>Bay</strong><br />

Volunteer Fire Brigade<br />

chief Andrew Norris<br />

READY TO GO: Andrew Norris with his son Alex and daughter Anita. A family affair at the<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong> Volunteer Fire Brigade.<br />

A COMMON theme among<br />

harbour fire chiefs has been that<br />

fighting fires runs in the family,<br />

Andrew Norris’s family is no<br />

exception.<br />

Norris, his daughter Anita and<br />

his son Alex have all served for<br />

the Governors <strong>Bay</strong> Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade and all three work<br />

for the emergency services in<br />

their day-to-day jobs.<br />

Norris, 57, begun his firefighting<br />

career around the same time<br />

as Lyttelton’s chief Mark Buckley.<br />

The pair did Sea Venturers<br />

together in their youth.<br />

Like Buckley, Scouts and Venturers<br />

were a big part of Norris’<br />

life growing up in Lyttelton.<br />

Norris is the middle child of<br />

seven siblings. They lost their<br />

mother at a young age and their<br />

father brought them up on his<br />

own.<br />

“Most of our youth was spent<br />

around Sea Scouts. For the old<br />

man it was good because it kept<br />

us kids entertained,” Norris said.<br />

Sea Venturers meant Norris<br />

and his siblings could go camping,<br />

sailing, rowing and do all<br />

the outdoor activities he could<br />

have hoped for growing up.<br />

“I had a really good childhood<br />

and youth with Scouts, I really<br />

enjoyed it, thrived on it,” he said.<br />

A third generation Norris, he<br />

has lived his whole life in the<br />

harbour basin. His father and his<br />

uncles all worked on the wharf.<br />

When Norris finished high<br />

school, he worked for the Canterbury<br />

Savings Bank for a year<br />

then he worked for six years at<br />

J.Voyce as a ship’s providore.<br />

Norris was 20 when he joined<br />

the Lyttelton Volunteer Fire<br />

Brigade with Buckley.<br />

“As a 20-year-old I think it was<br />

the excitement of it all, the thrill,<br />

the big toys, kicking around<br />

with the big boys, that’s what<br />

appealed me at the time,” Norris<br />

said.<br />

Norris doesn’t stray too far<br />

from the emergency services in<br />

his day to day life. He works in<br />

the communications centre at<br />

New Zealand Fire Service in the<br />

city.<br />

He moved from Lyttelton to<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong> with his wife Rita<br />

in 1996 and joined the Governors<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> brigade.<br />

Norris and Rita have two adult<br />

children Anita, 29, and Alex, 27.<br />

Anita has been a firefighter<br />

for the brigade for 10 years.<br />

She also works full-time with<br />

the Christchurch Airport Fire<br />

Service.<br />

Alex spent four years in the<br />

brigade with his father and sister.<br />

His full-time job is alongside his<br />

father at the Christchurch Justice<br />

and Emergency Services Precinct<br />

as a dispatcher.<br />

Norris said he is very proud to<br />

have had both of his children in<br />

the fire service with him.<br />

“They’ve done extremely well,”<br />

he said.<br />

Norris has been a part of the<br />

Governors <strong>Bay</strong> brigade for 25<br />

years and has been the chief<br />

since 2009.<br />

It’s a sense of loyalty that has<br />

always kept him there.<br />

“And the thought that you<br />

can actually do something<br />

good. It’s just because I enjoy it,<br />

so that’s why I do it,” Norris<br />

said.<br />

He stresses that his is only one<br />

of many roles that are important<br />

in the brigade.<br />

out for brigade<br />

“I don’t think we give enough<br />

credit to the background<br />

guys. We (chiefs) might be the<br />

recognised ones leading the<br />

brigade but without all those<br />

other people in the background<br />

we wouldn’t have a fire brigade,”<br />

Norris said.<br />

Like the other harbour fire<br />

chiefs, the Port Hills fires and<br />

the earthquakes have stood out<br />

in Norris’ career as something he<br />

will never forget.<br />

One of the first crashes he was<br />

called to as a young volunteer<br />

was a fatal in the Lyttelton<br />

Tunnel.<br />

The crash involved his boss<br />

at the time J Voyce who was<br />

killed.<br />

“That was the first serious<br />

crash I’d been to. That stands<br />

out,” he said.<br />

While Norris has seen a lot of<br />

tragedy in his firefighting career<br />

he doesn’t let things effect him<br />

too much.<br />

“I’m very lucky, I don’t get too<br />

stressed by things,” he said.<br />

The brigade tend to spend a<br />

lot of time socialising together<br />

outside of their work.<br />

The small community has 25<br />

volunteers in the brigade.<br />

“The community has to<br />

provide the firemen, and that’s<br />

what this community has<br />

done in spades, we’ve done really<br />

well. We have 25 people in this<br />

small space and it’s a credit to<br />

them.’’<br />

Norris said the “invisible<br />

people” in the brigade and in any<br />

volunteer roles don’t get enough<br />

credit.<br />

“Sometimes people might<br />

forget when the fire bell wakes<br />

them at one in the morning,<br />

there’s 20 or so people getting<br />

out of bed and going to help<br />

somebody,” Norris said.<br />

•Next week we talk to Little<br />

Children’s centre to<br />

benefit from fundraiser<br />

AN ONLINE arts sale will<br />

mean at least $75,000 for the<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s Centre.<br />

Sculpture on the Peninsula had<br />

to cancel its show a week before<br />

it was scheduled to be held when<br />

New Zealand went into red light<br />

settings in late January.<br />

Organiser Gill Hay said within<br />

a week, more than 2000 photos<br />

had been taken and the items<br />

catalogued and loaded to online<br />

art sales website NZArtbroker.<br />

“Everything had been going<br />

beautifully and we were so<br />

organised, and then we got the<br />

news. It was all hands to the<br />

pump to make sure we could<br />

honour the sculptors that had<br />

done so much already, and to<br />

continue to support the children<br />

of Cholmondeley,” she said.<br />

Thanks to overwhelming public<br />

support, the online event generated<br />

the highest level of sales<br />

in the event’s 22-year history. But<br />

overall takings were still significantly<br />

down due to a number of<br />

fixed costs and the loss of gate<br />

and food and beverage sales.<br />

“Still, we were astounded by<br />

the generosity of the hundreds of<br />

opening night ticket-holders, sponsors<br />

and suppliers who donated<br />

their tickets or fees,” Hay said.<br />

The $75,000 donation is likely<br />

to be increased later this year<br />

once the trust that organises the<br />

event is wound up. The January<br />

event was to be the last for Sculpture<br />

on the Peninsula.<br />

“While we’re disappointed<br />

we weren’t able to finish with a<br />

final event, we’re proud to have<br />

sustained the legacy of Sculpture<br />

on the Peninsula for so many<br />

years, and we are so grateful to<br />

the sculptors, volunteers and<br />

sponsors who have enabled us<br />

to support Cholmondeley for so<br />

long,” Hay said.<br />

Sculpture on the Peninsula has<br />

raised more than $825,000 for<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s Centre<br />

since the event began in January<br />

2000.<br />

Community board’s assistance sought<br />

• From page 1<br />

“It’s very hard to operate<br />

and maintain the vessel over<br />

there,” Stronach said.<br />

LPC bulk cargo and marine<br />

services general manager Paul<br />

Monk said the reason for the<br />

move of the Tug Lyttelton to<br />

its current location in the inner<br />

harbour is that the company<br />

have needed to berth larger<br />

vessels on jetty 2, the previous<br />

location of the tug.<br />

Stronach<br />

said the current<br />

location<br />

removed the<br />

important<br />

connection<br />

between the<br />

Harry<br />

Stronach<br />

vessel and the<br />

township by<br />

not having it<br />

publicly accessible.<br />

While discussions with the<br />

port company about this are<br />

being had, Stronach said they<br />

may need the board’s assistance<br />

on it.<br />

He wants to see the vessel<br />

moved back to the town berth<br />

beside the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

ferry.<br />

Said Monk: “We worked<br />

with the preservation society<br />

last year to facilitate this move<br />

after their dry-docking, and<br />

LPC provided new gangways<br />

to make the move possible. We<br />

also provide transportation<br />

to and from the tug for the<br />

preservation society’s work<br />

gangs, and the tug is brought<br />

back to the jetty 2 location by<br />

the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> ferry to<br />

pick-up and drop-off passengers<br />

when it is making trips.”<br />

Stronach said they would<br />

like to find a permanent berth<br />

in the inner harbour the public<br />

can access and where it can<br />

be properly maintained.<br />

Monk did not say if LPC<br />

would consider moving the<br />

vessel back to the original<br />

location.<br />

Community board member<br />

Scott Winter asked what the<br />

reason is for wanting the<br />

vessel in a publicly accessible<br />

place.<br />

Stronach said the society<br />

has a maintenance day every<br />

Thursday. The public being<br />

able to go down to the wharf<br />

to see the vessel makes it part<br />

of the township.<br />

He said the LPC has been<br />

“very supportive” over the<br />

years and they do not charge<br />

for berthage.<br />

“But it’s just having the<br />

proved to be impractical and<br />

increased the costs and made<br />

it all the more difficult,” said<br />

Stronach.<br />

Community board<br />

chairwoman Tori Peden said<br />

Stronach and the preservation<br />

society has the support of the<br />

board. It would be sending a<br />

letter of support.<br />

The society is still<br />

considering options to move<br />

away from using coal to an<br />

International recognition for snack bar<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

WHEN DAVID Dunn<br />

received an email last week<br />

that his snack bars had been<br />

named as “one of the best” by<br />

leading American outdoor<br />

magazine Backpacker, he<br />

danced around the room.<br />

The Crafty Weka Bar,<br />

made in Ferrymead, has been<br />

recognised globally as one of<br />

the best backpacking foods of<br />

<strong>2022</strong>.<br />

Dunn and his wife Clare, of<br />

Sumner, are “ecstatic” about<br />

the recognition.<br />

“It was a little bit numbing<br />

for me, we got ahead of any<br />

other snack bar in the whole<br />

American market just through<br />

that magazine. They could<br />

have picked anything,” Dunn<br />

said.<br />

“I danced around the office,”<br />

he said.<br />

The couple owned a bakery,<br />

The Kookery Nook. For 30<br />

years, they honed their craft<br />

and developed a passion for<br />

food development.<br />

As a respite from bakery<br />

life, Dunn spent time on his<br />

bicycle where his mates were<br />

constantly asking him to craft<br />

a bar that would give them<br />

sustained energy.<br />

So he did.<br />

The bars are hand-crafted<br />

and sustainably packaged,<br />

ideal for sports, lunches and<br />

snacks-on-the-go.<br />

“The very nature of a<br />

startup is that you have to<br />

push incredibly hard to be<br />

successful to get in front of<br />

TASTE:<br />

David<br />

Dunn<br />

and<br />

the<br />

snack<br />

bars.<br />

your competitors,” Dunn<br />

said.<br />

That has proved true for<br />

Dunn as the business expands<br />

offshore as their bars are in<br />

demand.<br />

The bars are exported to the<br />

United States and Australia.<br />

“You’ve got to have the<br />

people that you’re feeding<br />

it to tell you you’ve got a<br />

great product, when you’ve<br />

got that, that’s when you know<br />

you’ve got something,” Dunn<br />

said.<br />

And Backpacker magazine<br />

has done just that.<br />

“Every win no matter how<br />

big or small is a win for me,”<br />

Dunn said.<br />

Enjoy over a million items, including<br />

books, magazines, movies and more.<br />

Fines for overdue items and all historical debt<br />

relating to fines has been wiped.<br />

Godwits soon<br />

to return<br />

to Alaska<br />

EASTERN bar-tailed godwits<br />

are preparing to take flight, leave<br />

the estuary, and return home to<br />

Alaska.<br />

After spending the summer<br />

here, the little birds are currently<br />

feeding themselves up to gain<br />

enough weight to make the<br />

14,000km journey back to Alaska.<br />

Adult male birds are<br />

changing their feathers to<br />

display a ‘breeding plumage’ in<br />

readiness to impress the females<br />

for another breeding season in<br />

Alaska.<br />

When the sun, the moon, the<br />

tides and the wind direction are<br />

‘lined up’ the birds will take off.<br />

Nobody knows when exactly that<br />

will be but records show it will be<br />

any day during the first few weeks<br />

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

Last week, more than 1000<br />

godwits were spotted on the<br />

estuary said Avon-Heathcote<br />

Estuary Ihutai Trust manager,<br />

Tanya Jenkins. She said there was<br />

“distinct restlessness” among the<br />

birds showing signs that they are<br />

ready to go any day.<br />

At a steady 70km/h they fly to<br />

the Yellow Sea coast in China and<br />

Korea to refuel before continuing<br />

to Alaska where spring will<br />

provide food supply and nesting<br />

space.<br />

AKAROA IS one step closer to<br />

having a new nature play area in<br />

the Garden of Tāne.<br />

Consultation on the concept<br />

plan opened last week and will<br />

run through until <strong>March</strong> 28.<br />

The concept plan for the play<br />

area includes balancing logs,<br />

bamboo musical chimes, a woven<br />

timber walkway and a ‘folly’<br />

hut made of local macrocarpa<br />

and kanuka.<br />

A public domain<br />

since 1874,<br />

the Garden of<br />

Tāne features an<br />

extensive collection<br />

of mature<br />

specimen trees<br />

planted in its<br />

early years and<br />

is home to an<br />

expanding number of native<br />

species.<br />

Under the proposal, an existing<br />

play area near the main<br />

entrance to the reserve would<br />

be extended to include the new<br />

additions and surface mulch<br />

added to allow for the balancing<br />

and climbing activities.<br />

Drawings and carvings of<br />

insects with their te reo Māori<br />

names will be included along<br />

with illustrations and kowhaiwhai<br />

patterns on the hut.<br />

The plan has been developed<br />

by the Garden of Tāne management<br />

committee in conjunction<br />

Treasures from the past:<br />

Lyttelton Marine Band<br />

ON THE night of<br />

February 19, 1902, the<br />

Lyttelton Marine Band,<br />

friends, and supporters<br />

gathered in the Naval<br />

Artillery Orderly Room for<br />

a ‘Smoke Concert’.<br />

A strictly mens-only<br />

concern, much tobacco<br />

and aperitifs were<br />

consumed with the<br />

musical accompaniment<br />

and toasts to the King,<br />

the Governor and his<br />

Parliament, and the brave<br />

Volunteers of the Lyttelton<br />

Naval Corps.<br />

Founding bandmaster<br />

Mr George E Collins was<br />

also well toasted before<br />

presenting the Drum-<br />

Major Mr W Toomey<br />

with the gold medal the<br />

band won at the recent<br />

Christchurch marching<br />

competition.<br />

Mr Collins was then<br />

himself presented with a<br />

‘silver-mounted travelling<br />

bag’ by the assembled band<br />

members in appreciation of<br />

his good works in getting<br />

the band up to a national<br />

standard of practice.<br />

George Collins would<br />

go on to lead the Lyttelton<br />

Marine in taking a very<br />

respectable fourth place<br />

in the 1903 New Zealand<br />

National Championships<br />

(A Grade) that were held<br />

that year in Timaru.<br />

In the years before<br />

World War 1, the Lyttelton<br />

Marine Band would continue<br />

to delight audiences<br />

in and around Canterbury<br />

under the steady hands<br />

of conductors Mr J Cummins<br />

and then Mr W S<br />

King. The 1910 era band<br />

are seen here in our first<br />

photograph in full pressed<br />

uniforms, instruments in<br />

hand alongside their lady<br />

admirers and a chap in a<br />

bowler hat.<br />

That year the band took<br />

fourth place in the New<br />

Zealand National Championships<br />

(A Grade) playing<br />

Wagner at His Majesty’s<br />

Theatre in Dunedin.<br />

Two years later, the<br />

Lyttelton Marine easily<br />

overcame rivals Oamaru<br />

Regimental to take out<br />

first prize in the 1912<br />

New Zealand National<br />

Championships (B Grade)<br />

performing Rossini in<br />

front of a local audience at<br />

the Christchurch Showgrounds.<br />

Then in October of<br />

that same year they took<br />

third prize in the A Grade<br />

Championships at the<br />

Caledonian Grounds in<br />

Dunedin with Puccini’s<br />

Madame Butterfly.<br />

After a break during<br />

World War 1 the Lyttelton<br />

Marine Band reformed<br />

and in 1925 performed for<br />

and including band members<br />

Messrs Demicelli and<br />

Claude Plimmer. The band<br />

would continue on playing<br />

for some decades to come,<br />

being a fixture at town<br />

events such as the 1932<br />

Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> Festival<br />

of Lights, before reforming<br />

yet again after World War<br />

2 in 1946 with its long<br />

serving bandmaster Mr F J<br />

Oakley at the helm.<br />

The Lyttelton Marine<br />

Band marched on valiantly<br />

through the 50s until their<br />

last known performance<br />

in the National Championships<br />

on <strong>March</strong> 7,<br />

1960. In front of a home<br />

crowd at Lancaster Park,<br />

Christchurch, conducted<br />

by Oakley, the Lyttelton<br />

Marine came in at 11th<br />

behind the first placed Upper<br />

Hutt Municipal Band.<br />

Following this denouement,<br />

the Lyttelton Marine<br />

continued playing on the<br />

regional stage and included<br />

a junior band with Graham<br />

Rich conducting, with<br />

the juniors continuing<br />

after the senior band went<br />

into recess in 1968.<br />

Bob Hopkins conducted<br />

the junior band from 1971<br />

to 1973 at which point it<br />

also went into recess.<br />

Finally, Stan Carson<br />

reformed the Lyttelton<br />

Marine Band and<br />

remained conductor<br />

through to 1980 when the<br />

band’s assets were vested<br />

with the Lyttelton Borough<br />

Council.<br />

After the council mergers<br />

and a number of years,<br />

the band’s music library<br />

and musical instruments<br />

were purchased by the<br />

New Brighton Silver Band.<br />

The glory days of the<br />

Lyttelton Marine Band<br />

and its Smoke Concerts<br />

are now long gone, as is<br />

the band itself, but its<br />

spirit lives on in the still<br />

very musical port town it<br />

proudly represented for so<br />

many decades.<br />

Every Friday-Sunday for the<br />

month of <strong>March</strong>, 10am-4pm.<br />

By artists Karen Greenslade,<br />

Carolyn Currie and Vic Mangan.<br />

Through its responses to the<br />

physical landscape and natural<br />

elements of the Banks Peninsula,<br />

Seeing the Lines reframes<br />

the region’s native Taonga by<br />

foregrounding it in the local<br />

environment and the art of this<br />

exhibition. In this group show at<br />

Stoddart Cottage Gallery, Karen<br />

Greenslade, Carolyn Currie and<br />

Vic Mangan seek to counter<br />

plant blindness, when plants<br />

exist as a backdrop to our lives<br />

and art prioritises the human<br />

figure. The artists have moved<br />

by Erica James<br />

Even happy families have their secrets…<br />

ENTER TO<br />

WIN<br />

A sweeping family drama of old secrets and new beginnings<br />

from the Sunday Times bestselling author Erica James… Since<br />

the sudden death of her husband, Naomi has steadily rebuilt the<br />

life they shared in the village of Tilsham by the sea.<br />

Her eldest daughter, Martha, is sensible and determined – just like<br />

her father was – and very much in control of where her life is going. If she<br />

could just get pregnant with her husband, life would be perfect.<br />

Willow, the youngest, was always more sunny and easy-going, yet drifted through life,<br />

much to her father’s frustration. But now, with charming new boyfriend, Rick, she has a<br />

very good reason to settle down.<br />

The three women are as close as can be. But there are things Naomi has kept from her<br />

daughters. Like the arrival of Ellis, a long-lost friend from way back, now bringing the<br />

fun and spark back into her life. And she’s certainly never told them that her marriage to<br />

their father wasn’t quite what it seemed…<br />

The Sunday Times bestselling author Erica James returns with this gloriously compelling<br />

tale of mothers and daughters, secrets and love.<br />

The Tricky Art of Forgiveness<br />

by Meredith Jaffe<br />

After thirty years of marriage, can there be any secrets left? The charming new novel<br />

from the author of The Dressmakers of Yarrandarrah Prison<br />

Diana Forsyth is in the midst of planning the Big Party, a combined celebration of her<br />

husband Will’s 60th and their 30th wedding anniversary. The whole family is flying in<br />

and unbeknownst to Will, Diana is planning a Big Surprise.<br />

But then she finds a torn scrap of paper hidden inside the folds of one of his cashmere<br />

sweaters, with the words, I forgive you. And all of a sudden, Diana realises she’s not the<br />

only one keeping Big Secrets.<br />

As empty nesters who have just downsized from the family home, she and Will are<br />

supposed to be embracing a new promise of glorious freedom - not revisiting a past<br />

that Diana has worked very hard to leave behind.<br />

A witty, poignant and insightful exploration of marriage: the choices we make - or don’t<br />

make, the resentments we hold, the lies we tell and what forgiveness really means.<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 />

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 />

a bespoke sense of design and upscale atmosphere in the bathrooms. Stylishly<br />

landscaped and sitting amidst gorgeous grounds with established planting, the pool<br />
