Ruby gets

lost after

nature call

• By Emily Moorhouse

IT WAS 5am, -3 deg C and

dark and Ruby, an 11-year-old

labrador, was standing outside a

suburban laundromat, lost.

She was cold and wet after

somehow losing her way when

she went for her nightly toilet

stop.

Shannon and a friend, who

lived near Linwood Laundromat

in Buckleys Rd, spotted the

confused Ruby as they went to

do some early morning washing.

Just under 1km away, Ruby’s

worried family had been up

looking for her, as the temperature

dropped below freezing

point.

Murder

accused

was let

out of

secure

unit

• By Kurt Bayer

and Anna Leask

A FULL REVIEW has been

launched by health board bosses

after a mental health patient on

community leave is accused of

murdering a mother-of-four

in a random street stabbing in

Sockburn.

The Canterbury District Health

Board yesterday announced it

is carrying out a review after

days of questions into how the

37-year-old man was allowed into

the community.

Stuff reported yesterday he

had been in a secure unit at

Hillmorton Hospital.

Laisa Waka Tunidau, 52,

had caught the bus home from

work and was metres from her

house on Cheyenne St, when she

was attacked about 4.20pm on

Saturday.

CDHB chief executive, Dr Peter

Bramley yesterday expressed his

sympathy to her family.

“My thoughts are with her

family and friends at this

very sad time,” he said in a

statement.

Quake

brain fog

fades over

time

– study

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

THE FOG of the earthquakes

is finally lifting for resilient

Cantabrians.

New research from the University

of Otago, Christchurch,

has found the brain function of

otherwise-healthy individuals

living through a traumatic event

has the ability to bounce back

over time.

An initial study conducted

about three years post-quake

found a group of Cantabrians

who didn’t develop psychological

difficulties were still experiencing

issues with cognitive function

including memory and attention.

But 10-11 years on from the

earthquakes, researchers found

that same group overcame those

issues.

Senior research fellow Dr Katie

Douglas said it shows time does

heal which is promising and

hopeful for those that experienced

that trauma.

“This is good news as it offers

preliminary evidence that

there are no long-lasting effects

on cognitive impairment after

exposure to a traumatic event, at

least in people who don’t develop

a mental health condition.

“It suggests changes in their

cognitive functioning and emotion

processing may be related to

exposure to continued threat in

the environment, which improves

when the threat resolves,’ she said.

Douglas said the findings back

up similar international studies

which show the brain’s ability to

recover once distanced in time

from the original trauma.

“When the original studies

were conducted, people were

living in an environment

of ongoing seismic activity

where, over a two-year period,

Canterbury experienced over

10,000 aftershocks.’’

The faces behind the mayoral

A candidate to

challenge Phil Mauger’s

mayoral bid has

officially emerged four

months before the local

government election

determines Lianne

Dalziel’s successor. Chris

Barclay details the key

support crew behind

the city councillor and

new contender, former

Canterbury District

Health Board chief

executive David Meates

TEAM MAUGER

First-term city councillor Sam

MacDonald does not have an

official role with Phil Mauger’s

campaign. The former electoral

chair for then National Party

minister Gerry Brownlee will

serve as an adviser for the high

profile businessman.

MacDonald, who is seeking

re-election in the Waimairi

Ward under the right-leaning

Independent Citizen banner,

described himself as Mauger’s

“eyes and ears” from a financial

perspective.

“I’ve been very clear, with

my chartered accounting

background, that I’m happy to

support Phil purely because he’s

pragmatic. He doesn’t put up

with the bureaucratic nonsense

that can often happen in big

organisations like this.

“Everyone at the council now

has worked with Phil. There’s

an existing relationship even for

the ones that sometimes may not

agree with him. They understand

how he operates.”

MacDonald identified fellow

Independent Citizens representative

James Gough (Waimairi)

as another source of assistance

ahead of the polls on October 8.

There will be a range of people

that will help out. From a commercial,

institutional knowledge

point of view James will be right

in the thick of that,” he said.

MacDonald was surprised at

the timing of Meates announcement.

There’s an air of arrogance

about it. To me, it’s like ‘I can

just check back into the city and

become the mayor’. Phil has been

out there for three years at least

doing the hard graft, understanding

the issues.”

Australian-born Erin Jamieson,

a partner at Convergence

PR, is co-ordinating a Mauger

campaign for the second time,

following his election as a firsttime

city councillor for Burwood

in 2019.

The award-winning public

relations and strategic

communications expert also

worked on two successful

mayoral campaigns for Moore’s

successor, Sir Bob Parker.

“I’ve been doing this for a long

time, I’ve been involved in political

strategies and working with

candidates for probably 15 years,”

said Jamieson, who also worked

with the West Coast District

Health Board in the aftermath of

the Pike River mining disaster.

strategise as soon as the jet lag

allows.

“He’s a quiet, quite a humble

leader and what we need in

Christchurch, and New Zealand

to an extent, is people who

bring people together,” Moore

said.

“You can’t be a show pony

doing that sort of thing. You

need to actually have brains and

modesty and I think he’s got both

attributes.”

Moore was approached by

Meates several months ago and

decided to join the bid as a ‘team

member’.

There’s nothing like an old

gargoyle sitting in the corner

going ‘Nah, that won’t work’,” he

told The Star.

Aaron Campbell

Christchurch, David did that for

the CDHB and he paid the price,”

Moore said of Meates decision to

quit the post in 2020.

Meates’ campaign secretary

Aaron Campbell, a keen

photographer and former

community board member, was

Dalziel’s campaign manager

when she was re-elected in 2016

and 2019.

“I’d never volunteered or done

any (campaign) work before

Lianne,” said Campbell, who also

has a background in catering.

Campbell was tight-lipped on

the identity of other individuals

assisting Meates.

There’s a number of people on

the team providing advice and

speciality roles,” he said.

Meates sidesteps big issue

• By Chris Barclay

IT’S A political football, but

debate over the Te Kaha/

Canterbury Multi-Use Arena’s

future is not yet a game David

Meates is willing to play.

Asked by The Star for his

stance on the polarising project,

whose estimated construction

cost blew out $150 million earlier

this month, Meates would not

comment specifically.

“David will have a definitive

position on the stadium in

the coming days after his

announcement,” said campaign

secretary Aaron Campbell via a

statement.

“David encourages all residents

to submit to the council on this

important issue.”

Meates, who confirmed his

candidacy today, is in the process

of returning from the UK.

The Star also sought Meates’

opinion on what he considered

the five biggest issues facing the

city and whether his campaign

launch gave him sufficient time

to launch a viable campaign

given Mauger began his bid last

August.

“He’ll be happy to cover these

topics in detail face to face on his

return,” Campbell said.

Phil Mauger, the other mayoral

candidate, was last year in

favour of boosting the arena’s

capacity to 30,000 and in spite

of the spiralling costs revealed

by the city council on June 1, he

wants to persevere with

the project which is now

estimated to cost at least $683

million.

He initially thought it would

be prudent to pause and reevaluate,

but on June 10 he had a

change of heart via a video shot

at the construction site.

“Christchurch is the second

biggest city in the country. If we

want to be a world class leading

city, we need world class leading

infrastructure and this is the

place it’s going to happen,” he

said.

“My personal opinion is we

can’t do without the stadium, we

have to have it.”

Meanwhile, the city council

had received 23,100 submissions

by close of business Tuesday.

The time frame for submissions

opened on June 10 and closes on

Tuesday.

The council will consider the

submissions and then decide

whether to proceed as planned,

mothball the project or abandon

it.

Family devastated after fatal stabbing

• From page 1

“I can confirm that the man

accused of her murder was a

patient of the DHB’s specialist

mental health service based at

Hillmorton, who had been on

community leave.

“Whenever a serious adverse

event occurs involving patients in

our care a full review is carried

out. A serious event review looks

carefully into the care provided.

“I can assure the public that if

there are recommendations for

changes to be made as a result of

our own, or any external review,

these will be actioned.

“We continue to assist police

with their investigations and as

this matter is before the courts

it is not appropriate for us to

provide any further comment at

this time.”

Tunidau’s 11-year-old son has

been left “traumatised” after

watching emergency services

try to save a woman outside his

family home, not then knowing it

was his mother.

The small and tight-knit community

is rallying around the

father and son. They haven’t

returned home yet but have been

given a safe place to stay.

A Givealittle page launched to

support the family has already

raised more than $51,000.

Fijian community leader and

parish member Una Tikoi earlier

said the fatal stabbing has devastated

family and friends.

The community is not happy

. . . the community is angry for

our beloved friend and mother

whose life has been taken away

recklessly,” Tikoi said.

People are asking why the man

was allowed to be in the community

when he was a “sick man”,

Tikoi said.

Funeral plans are still being

finalised but it’s likely that Tunidau

will be returned to Fiji to be

farewelled with loved ones.

She has four children, with

three of them living back in her

homeland.

Waqasokolala, who knew the

family well and often stayed at

their Sockburn home, rushed to

He said grieving husband

Nemani Tunidau was distraught

but trying to stay strong for his

“He lost a wife, his loved one,”

“Only time will heal and that

permission he will come through.

“He is trying to be a very

Waqasokolala is grateful

for the support of the wider

stories of workmates showing up

heartbreak at losing her beloved

mother.

“I can’t begin to express how

much I will miss you. There is a

huge hole in my heart and I don’t

know how I’m going to cope. I

will always be thinking of you,

mum.”

The man accused of stabbing

Tunidau to death was granted

interim name suppression during

a brief appearance from custody

at Christchurch District Court

on Monday.

He will appear at the High

Court in Christchurch on

July 15 – and a judge has called

for a report under Section 38

of the Criminal Procedure

(Mentally Impaired Persons) Act

2003 to assess his fitness to stand

trial.

Health Minister Andrew Little’s

office has also declined to

comment so far.

Christchurch residents’ hearts

went out to the family and

friends of Tunidau who was

“killed in such a senseless, violent

attack”, the city’s mayor Lianne

Dalziel said.

“A crime of this nature will

have a devastating impact on the

community as well, and they too

will want answers as to how and

why this happened.”

Canterbury District Commander

Superintendent John

Price said the alleged murder

was “a horrific, traumatic and

random attack on an innocent

person who was simply making

her way home from work”.

The traumatic, senseless act

would have a huge impact on the

community as a whole and right

across New Zealand, he said.

“No one deserves this,” Price

said. – NZ Herald

• By David Clarkson

A TRIBESMEN gang prospect

has admitted his role in

shifting millions of dollars of

methamphetamine around the

country during Covid lockdown.

Police seized a shipment worth

between $2 and $3 million in

May 2020, and in the High

Court at Christchurch this week,

Tamal Edward McMeekan

admitted possession of the drugs

for supply.

The Crown is seeking to seize

$38,834 in cash the police found

in a car and at the Bryndwr

property when they carried out

their search.

Justice Rob Osborne remanded

McMeekan in custody for

sentencing on October 5, but did

not enter convictions because

that would likely stop him attending

anger management and

parenting courses in prison.

Defence counsel Thomas

Harre said he would seek a

cultural report and psychiatric

report on McMeekan ahead of

sentencing. Justice Osborne has

asked for a pre-sentence report

by Community Probation.

McMeekan, 41, admitted

charges of meth possession

for supply, possession of

cannabis, a breach of the Covid

lockdown rules in May 2020,

and failing to assist an officer

doing a search by denying access

to his cellphone.

Before his guilty pleas, the

case had been heading for trial.

Crown prosecutor April Mills

said the police’s Canterbury

Organised Crime Unit began

Operation Soul, which was an

investigation into drug dealing

activities by members and associates

of the Canterbury-based

Tribesmen Motorcycle gang in

October 2019.

The investigation showed the

Canterbury-based Tribesmen

and associates were regularly

involved in the purchase of significant

quantities of methamphetamine

from Aucklandbased

supplies. The meth would

be distributed to various South

Island dealers. McMeekan was a

gang prospect.

The Crown said that the

national Covid emergency lockdown

was declared in March

2020, and while the country was

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Guilty plea to meth supply

in level 3 lockdown with limits

on travel, movements and associating

with others, McMeekan

arrived in Christchurch from

Wellington on May 3. He had no

legal basis allowing the travel.

The next day, police swooped

in when McMeekan and another

man arrived in a car at a Bryndwr

address. The other man has

already admitted charges and is

due for sentence in August.

At McMeekan’s feet was a

cardboard box containing three

plastic bags with almost 3kg of

methamphetamine with a street

value of $2 to $3 million. Cash

totalling $38,834 was found

in 10 locations throughout the

house and garage, the car, and

in a shoulder bag belonging to

McMeekan.

The shoulder bag also had

cannabis inside.

In the other offender’s bedroom,

the garage, and a sleepout,

35 used Prezzy cards worth

more than $8500 were found.

They are a non-traceable credit

card payment form that can be

used in person, or online.

McMeekan refused to give a

detective constable the PIN code

for his cellphone. He gave no

explanation for his travel during

lockdown.

The Crown said: “The

investigation established the

Christchurch Tribesmen gang

were involved in transporting

significant sums of money to

enable the purchase of up to 3kg

to 4kg of methamphetamine at

a time.

“McMeekan was likely utilised

by the gang due to his expertise

with motorcycles, ability and

flexibility to travel domestically

to facilitate TMC drug offending

around New Zealand, and his

loyalty to TMC.

“It is not believed that the

defendant McMeekan held any

degree of control or influence

in the criminal enterprise,

nor would he have received

significant financial reward for

his involvement.”

NEWS 9

Accused no

stranger to

crime

MCMEEKAN WAS jailed for

seven years nine months in 2015

for his involvement in a drugs

courier operation.

Then aged 34, he was sentenced

on two charges of possession of

methamphetamine for supply,

two of unlawful possession of a

pistol, possession of implements

for using methamphetamine,

dealing in methamphetamine,

and possession of cannabis for

supply.

After he had been arrested at a

motel in Blenheim Rd and bailed,

he arranged for other people

to fly to Auckland and uplift

methamphetamine and bring it to

his address, Court News website

reported.

Two people were stopped by police

at the Christchurch Airport,

and found the drugs on a woman.

When they searched McMeekan’s

house they found a loaded

shotgun, and charged him with

possession of the shotgun, possession

of methamphetamine, and

supplying methamphetamine.

McMeekan also made headlines

in 2009 when he appeared in

court with another man for

what was described as a Dukes

of Hazzard style raid on a

Christchurch car yard where

a car was jumped over the low

perimeter fence.

‘Yeah, she was pretty happy to see us’

• From page 1

For the next two-and-a-half

days they would continue the

search, not knowing what had

happened, fearing she may have

been stolen.

Ruby was staring at Shannon

and his friend as they approached

the laundromat. He thought it

was the dog that belonged to a

homeless man who frequented

the area. He approached Ruby

but she took off. He later found

her curled up in a ball “soaking

wet and cold” near a bus stop.

He walked Ruby back to his

house nearby. She was happy to

go and after giving her some of

his dog’s biscuits, she curled up

on the couch.

Ruby stayed at Shannon’s place

for the next two nights, as he

tried in vain to find the homeless

man in Linwood he thought

Ruby belonged to – unaware

Ruby’s owner Sam Mano was

desperately posting on social media

to try and track her down.

The ordeal had started last

Wednesday night when Ruby,

who doesn’t wear a collar at

home, went outside for a wee.

Mano, who has had Ruby since

she was a puppy, went out looking

for her for a couple of hours

after she failed to come back.

There’s that fear of people

taking dogs for whatever reason

. . . it’s not a nice feeling having

a family member go missing,”

Mano said.

The next morning when Ruby

still hadn’t returned, the Mano

family began posting on Facebook

community groups and

lost and found pet pages in hopes

someone would know of her

whereabouts.

In total the posts reached

almost 500 shares and more

than 100 comments from people

showing their support towards

the family.

On Saturday, Shannon’s friend

saw social media posts, and realised

the labrador they had wasn’t

the homeless man’s.

He contacted the Manos to

come over and see if Ruby was

theirs. He was surprised Ruby

had got as far as she did.

FRIENDLY: Sam Mano said Ruby will happily

go up to anyone that has a friendly face and

calls out to her with the hopes they will give

her food. Above – The Linwood Laundromat

where Ruby was found. PHOTOS: STAR NEWS

“That’s quite a fair distance for

an old dog like that, especially

cold in the night . . . no poor soul

should be left outside in this cold

weather,” Shannon said.

A $300 reward posted for the

return of Ruby came at a “helpful

time”, Shannon said.

Mano said when he arrived

at Shannon’s house Ruby began

jumping up and down excitedly

as soon as she saw his car.

“If you know Ruby her tail flies

at 100 miles an hour. Yeah, she

was pretty happy to see us.”

Mano said Ruby’s return was a

team effort by the community. It

was amazing to see the response.

The general public was

amazing . . . [we had] offers from

strangers to help put flyers out,”

he said.

HOUSEHOLD items that

seem benign are some of the

most common sources of

microplastics, a Canterbury

University PhD student has

found.

Clothing and soft furnishings,

glitter, kitchen sponges, nail

polish, sunscreen, mascara, and

lipsticks are bursting with what

Helena Ruffell calls ‘sneaky

plastics.’

Ruffell began researching

microplastics – plastic particles

smaller than 5mm – for her

master’s project by investigating

the levels and types going into

and out of wastewater treatment

plants. She is now researching

how microplastics impact the

health and function of New Zealand

soils, and how they get into

the soils in the first place.

“Unfortunately, microplastics

are everywhere, including in

places you wouldn’t expect. I’ve

found microplastics in every single

sample I’ve looked at,” she said.

“When we think of plastic,

we tend to think of a rigid shiny

product like a drink bottle. A lot

of the time we don’t realise that

microplastics are lurking in a

myriad of other everyday items.

“For instance, I hadn’t realised

that glitter is made from plastic.

And we all know how incredibly

hard it is to get rid of it and

how easily it can rub off toys,

clothing, art work, makeup, nail

polish and remain on clothing,

carpets and other surfaces for a

long time. Makeup, nail polishes

and glitter paints for hair and

body are all washed down the

drain during hand washing and

showers or baths and into the

wastewater treatment plants, and

are eventually released into the

environment.

“A lot of our clothing and

soft furnishings, for example

blankets, cushions, curtains,

and carpet, are actually made

of plastic. These synthetics all

continually shed microfibres and

this is accelerated when we wash

them. Then the water from the

washing machine goes down the

drain and eventually out into the

environment.”

The quantity of microplastics

in each wastewater sample took

Ruffell by surprise.

“I thought the likelihood of

finding any plastics in the wastewater

treatment plants would

be very low because of the sheer

volume of water that’s there. I

was wrong. Some samples are so

full of microplastics it looks like

someone sprinkled hundred and

thousands over them.

“And I’m continuing to find

lots of microbeads even though

they were banned for sale in personal

care products in 2018. But

they are clearly still being used

she said.

As part of her PhD research,

Ruffell is collecting samples of

different soils and biowastes that

are commonly applied onto soils

and may be sources of microplastics

– for instance, compost,

biosolids (dried sewage sludge)

and pasture irrigated with

treated municipal effluent.

“I’m identifying how many

microplastics are present in each

sample type, and what kinds

of plastic polymers are present,

such as polyester, acrylic, polypropylene,

or nylon. I am also

investigating if there are any

•Replace plastic kitchen

sponges with a cotton

•Wash clothes less

frequently or spot wash

•When buying new items,

choose natural fibres

blankets where possible

•Cut down on glitter

•Check makeup for

•Ask companies if

they use microbeads

Supervisor Professor Sally Gaw

said Ruffell’s project is important

as it highlights how everyday

products contribute to microplastic

changes we can all easily make.

Ruffell’s PhD work is part

of the Ministry of Business

ASPHALT ROADS in

Christchurch will get a

rejuvenation seal in a bid to

extend their life.

The city council says the seal

will extend the life of an existing

road by six to 10 years.

“Asphalt is a

great surface

for roads, but as

it ages it loses

oils and resins,

which causes

the surface

to become

brittle and

break apart,’’

said city council city streets

maintenance manager Steve

Guy.

“We spend on average $3

million each year milling out

brittle asphalt and replacing

it. With the rising cost of

materials and an ageing

roading network, this works

out to be approximately 25km

renewed each year.

“We have 584km of asphalt

roads across the city which

means that, based on our

existing budgets, it would take

us about approximately 23

years to resurface the whole

network. It is not a sustainable

option to carry on doing what

we are doing without increasing

our budgets, so we have

sought out new technologies

that allow us to rejuvenate our

roads, rather than waiting until

we have to replace them.”

Guy said applying a

rejuvenation seal to asphalt

10-to-15 years after it is laid

can replace oils and resins that

have been lost due to ageing.

The product sinks down into

the asphalt and counters the

effects of ageing by filling in

minor cracks, creating more

elasticity and waterproofing

the road surface (best

described as ‘collagen’

for roads).

Sealing the deal for asphalt roads

Steve Guy

NEW SURFACE: Asphalt roads will have their life extended with a rejuvenation seal.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

“In the coming financial

year, we are not only planning

to replace the same amount of

old asphalt, but also rejuvenate

an additional 22.6km of asphalt,’’

he said.

“This rejuvenation work will

be funded through existing

maintenance budgets, so no

additional funding will be

sought. It also means that we

will be nearly doubling the

amount of work being done on

asphalt roads around the city.

This should lead to better road

conditions for all users.’’

Guy said it was also good asset

management and better for

the environment.

“It means we can reduce the

number of times we mill out

a road, which in turn reduces

the amount of material that we

need to dispose of at landfill.

“By rejuvenating rather

than replacing asphalt we are

also reducing the need for

materials to be supplied by

quarries so that is another

factor in its favour.’’

Flyover: Business may have to move

A BUSINESS with purpose-built

headquarters at Rolleston is

faced with having to move if the

Rolleston flyover goes ahead as

planned.

Christchurch RV Centre office

manager Allicia Beirne said the

new NZ Transport Agency Waka

Kotahi concept plan released last

week revealed motorists towing

caravans coming off the flyover

could find the turn into the caravan

and motorhome business’

entrance too tight.

“We are not happy about it, we

don’t want to move, we haven’t

even been here 12 months,”

Beirne said.

A Waka Kotahi spokesperson

said the roading authority was

in discussion with Christchurch

RV Centre for alternative access

options.

“One of the options being

weighed up at the moment is

relocating their business to

another site,” the spokesperson

confirmed.

The roading authority was

actively engaging with directly

affected parties to mitigate their

concerns around access to their

sites.

Drummond and Etheridge

Rolleston, next door to Christchurch

RV Centre, is among those

that also have concerns.

Branch manager Murray

Chesterman said he was awaiting

more detail before making

further comment.

Some Jones Rd businesses support

the new plan.

MTF Finance franchise owner

Dan Groundwater said it would

allow traffic to continue onto

Jones Rd, while the original

flyover plan released last year

had proposed to take traffic away

from it.

U-Tow New Zealand spokesperson

Tony Walker said the new

flyover would potentially give

more exposure to his business as

it exited nearby.

Waka Kotahi director of

regional relationships James

Caygill said the roading authority

was seeking feedback to July

22.

The $125 million project aims

to improve connections across

the highway between Rolleston’s

residential side and industrial

and business hubs and railway

inland port zone.

“Since public consultation

last year, the team has taken

another look at ways the residential

and industrial sides of

Rolleston can be better connected,”

Caygill said.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton

welcomed the changes.

He said as well as safer ways

to cross and connect Rolleston,

the plan offered people more

travel choice.

“This project will provide

better travel options, keep our

people safe and help our district’s

economy grow,” Broughton said.

Buddies reunited on the battlefield

They lived down the

road from each other

in Christchurch. Twenty

years later, Tom Mutch

finds himself reunited

in a war zone with his

childhood friend

“I WONDER what Miss Wade

would think if she could see this,”

Nick Fisher says as 30 Ukrainian

rockets fly over our heads to their

targets in the Russian-occupied

areas of Kharkiv.

He was talking about our

intermediate school teacher Jude

Wade [now Garrett] who, when

I reached out to her later, said: “I

always said there were amazing

kids in that class who would go

far in the world, not sure I was

anticipating a war zone.”

Ukraine’s second-largest city

and its surrounding area had

been attacked since the start of

Russia’s invasion on February

24 and me and my old classmate

were there to report on it. I hadn’t

seen Nick in nearly 20 years, yet

here we were reunited for the first

time on one of the world’s most

terrifying battlefields.

“As soon as I woke up on the

morning the war started, I knew

I just had to go there and tell the

story,” Nick tells me. I had been

in Kyiv on the same day and I felt

a similar compulsion to stay.

We had grown up just down

the road from each other in

Christchurch and had been

friends in our class for two

years at Cobham Intermediate,

but had gone to different high

schools and lost touch. Since we

had parted ways, we had taken

divergent paths to meet where we

were, both aged 30, as journalists

to cover the story of our lifetimes.

I’m a freelance magazine

journalist and he is one of the

most well-known travel video

bloggers in the world.

I had left New Zealand to do

my undergraduate degree at

Oxford University, before going

to work as a parliamentary

researcher in the British

Parliament.

Having gotten bored of a

desk job interviewing besuited

politicians and generals in

swanky hotels in central London,

I decided to become a freelance

conflict journalist. I had

covered the Nagorno Karabakh

conflict between Armenia and

Azerbaijan in 2020 and then the

fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban

the year after that.

Hearing reports of the Russian

military build up on the border

of Ukraine at the start of the

year, I decided to go and report

on how Ukrainian society was

dealing with this. I stayed and

the rest is history.

Nick had a different route

to Kharkiv. After studying at

Christchurch Boys’ High School,

he studied horticulture before

becoming a tour guide in the

South Island. But after doing

his OE, he soon found his true

passion was film-making.

CLASSMATES: Nick Fisher (left) and Tom Mutch grew up together in Christchurch before venturing abroad. Today they

are both journalists, covering the war in Ukraine.

“It started when I was in Nepal

during the earthquake,” he tells

me. “I was supposed to just be

travelling and I was about to start

teaching English.”

The next day the school he

was to teach in was flattened. He

decided to document his escape

from the Nepalese mountains

in the chaos and his YouTube

channel Indigo Traveler was

born.

His first videos are rough and

ready, covering well-trodden

destinations such as Vietnam,

Cambodia and India. The

camera is shaky and the editing

amateurish.

“Really good production values

filming a video from across the

road whilst trucks drive in front

of you,” he jokes. He never had

any training.

“I was always really into

mountain biking and there is a

big video culture around that,

but I didn’t do it professionally,”

he says.

But from the beginning he had

a flair for engaging storytelling

and a genuine curiosity that

led him to interesting and

unexpected encounters, which set

him apart from the many other

travel writers or bloggers. He said

it took him about a year-anda-half

to become self-sufficient

from his video work.

Nick started exploring the

quirkier, more remote and

dangerous areas of the world. His

first outside-the-box travel was

to North Korea which still rates

among his best-ranked videos.

‘Inside North Korea: Surreal

Experience’ is his most popular

with 9.5 million views. Nick

started to become a YouTube

success. Collectively, his videos

have been viewed more than

155 million times, but he says he

started to become dissatisfied

with pure travel blogging.

“In around 2019 I began to

pivot away from your regular

‘I looked like I was living the dream, being able to

get paid to travel around the world, but I felt it was

getting a bit empty and I wanted to do something more

meaningful’ – Nick Fisher

travel videos.

“I looked like I was living the

dream, being able to get paid to

travel around the world. But I felt

it was getting a bit empty and I

wanted to do something more

meaningful.”

He started with a trip to

Venezuela in 2019. The country,

which used to be one of Latin

America’s most prosperous,

has been in the middle of a

major economic collapse and

is now one of the world’s most

impoverished and dangerous

nations. He decided to use his

channel to raise money for a local

social project, which ended up

overwhelming his expectations.

The response blew me out of

the water.”

Nick says his family are still

most proud of the charitable side

of his work. He raised more than

$400,000 for a series of soup

kitchens in Petare, the biggest

slum in Latin America.

“Someone in UNICEF saw my

videos in Venezuela and really

liked them so they invited me to

come with them to Afghanistan.

So, it just continued from there.”

The journeys became wilder

and the countries more

dangerous and war-torn.

Alongside Afghanistan, his

recent videos have been a

smorgasbord of the world’s worst

political and humanitarian

crises: Libya, Yemen, Lebanon,

and Somalia.

The cameras became more

expensive and his editing much

crisper and more professional

until the production values

approached that of major news

networks.

The story he is most proud of

is about a floating slum in the

Nigerian capital of Lagos – think

Slumdog Millionaire crossed with

Venice.

From YouTuber to ‘full-out’ journalist

• From page 19

As Nick pivoted to dangerous

destinations, he was aware of the

risk and that his family sometimes

worries, but he insists he

takes all reasonable precautions.

“Of course, I always have common

sense. I use a local fixer who

has grown up there and speaks

the language. I’ve had some

amazing people take care of me.

When I was in Venezuela, we

would be walking down a dangerous

slum and my guy Lenny

would always be looking behind

us. I’ve met some of the most

amazing people on my travels

this way.”

He insists there is not a single

country on Earth he wouldn’t be

willing to visit.

For any aspiring filmmakers

his advice is simple: “I would say

you have to just go. You just must

go out there and make all the

standard mistakes and take bad

video and gradually get better as

you go along and learn.”

Nick was in Hungary where

he lives with his girlfriend of five

years when the war in Ukraine

broke out.

“I’ve been to the country about

five or six times. I’ve always loved

Ukraine and its people. They are

always so welcoming and chilled

out, which is not always the case

in this part of the world.”

We had reconnected the

previous year after I’d watched

his videos about the crises in

Lebanon and Venezuela, which

I had reported from in the past.

My mum, who used to help

supervise our old school camps,

connected us after I sent her a

link to one of his videos.

He reached out when he was

planning to come to Ukraine.

When we met for beers at one

of the recently reopened bars in

Kyiv it was perfectly pleasant and

completely surreal. Nearly 20

years had gone by and here we

were in the middle of a war zone

trading old stories about people

we’d known in what felt like a

different lifetime on the other

side of the world.

Nick’s first two videos in

Ukraine are trips through

WAR ZONE: Fisher and Mutch in Ukraine. Below – Fisher interviewing Mykola, who was

born at the outbreak of World War 2.

PHOTOS: TOM MUTCH/NZ HERALD

the reopening of Kyiv and the

suburbs of Irpin and Bucha that

were the scene of serious war

crimes. It is full of evocative and

moving moments. He warns his

viewers as he steps into Bucha:

“I’ve been told to watch my step

for booby traps that the Russians

might have left.” Looking around

at the destruction he tells us:

“It is really quite hard for me to

convey how many bullet holes

there are here… every building I

can see here is destroyed.”

But his best skill has always

been allowing the residents of

places to tell their own stories

and putting himself in the story

as an observer rather than the

protagonist. An elderly woman

he interviews who lived under

the Russian occupation tells him

that “your heart and mine are

close”, asks if he is married and

promises he will have a “lovely

bride” one day.

But while the Russians had

been pushed out of Kyiv, we

decided to see the real war in a

place that was still under heavy

fire and tell the stories of the

civilians sheltering from Russian

artillery and the soldiers defending

their homelands.

On the train to Kharkiv we

scrolled through social media,

checking out old friends and

classmates now scattered around

the world. There was Ann Yoo

who had married my best friend

from high school and had just

given birth to their first child.

There was Alex Upjohn Beatson,

a machine learning engineer living

in the US, and Michael Vink,

a pro-cycling champion.

“It would be so cool to do a roll

call now to see what everyone is

up to,” Wade told us later.

And that was how we found

ourselves outside a deserted

farmhouse in eastern Ukraine

on the frontlines. The carcass

of a destroyed Russian tank lay

in front of it and on the field

behind us a Russian helicopter

had been shot down. We could

hear the crack and boom of the

artillery duel that was taking

place all around us. Russia

had captured these villages in

the first days of its offensive

when the city of Kharkiv was

expected to capitulate. Instead,

the Ukrainians repulsed the

invaders in a desperate battle at

the gates of the city. Since then,

the Russian army had planted its

artillery and pounded the hell

out of Kharkiv.

We met a man in his eighties

named Mykola who was born at

the outbreak of World War 2 and

grew up on his parents’ stories

of the fighting. “This was worse

than World War Two,” he tells

Nick, describing the awesome

power of modern weaponry that

thundered around him.

We didn’t have time to discuss

what our teacher would have

really thought before one of the

Ukrainian army soldiers accompanying

a young lieutenant

named Leila came over to us and

told us to stay alert.

“Stay here and if anything

happens take cover in the bar.

The Russians could locate our artillery

and fire back on us at any

moment.”

And in the middle of a short

clip of Nick talking to the camera

describing the scene, another

rocket barrage streamed over

our heads in the background. I

checked his camera: it had been

one of those rare moments of

lucky film-making magic. The

most liked comment on his new

video is, “You’ve developed from

a regular travel YouTuber to a

full-out modern-day journalist.

Your progress is massive.” His

latest video on Ukraine is the

fastest-watched video he’s had on

his channel.

Wade still remembers him as

the kid she made run so many

laps in phys ed that he threw up

on the classroom couch.

Teacher says Fisher was ‘a strong, determined young lad’

• By Chris Barclay

NICK FISHER’S interest in

Genghis Khan while studying

in Jude Wade’s class at Cobham

Intermediate meant his former

teacher wasn’t totally surprised

when an email arrived from the

Ukraine.

It in, Fisher asked if Wade,

now Jude Garrett, a hub teacher

at Oamaru Intermediate School,

had any photos he might be able

to use in the story written by

Tom Mutch (pages 19-20).

“When I got the email I

remembered Nicholas – he was

always Nicholas – absolutely,”

said Garrett, who taught Mutch

and Fisher in 2003 and 2004.

She oversaw a teaching philosophy

dubbed Inquiry for a

34-strong class which, where

possible, gave students “more say

in what they did and how they

did it”.

“We did a lot of stuff out in the

community. One of the inquiries

was around heritage, we looked

at old buildings and Shakespeare,”

Garrett said.

“We did a challenge and crisis

one, we went to the Civil Defence

headquarters, we went to the

City Mission and did volunteer

work.”

It was a learning environment

where Fisher thrived.

“It [Inquiry] created a pathway

of what they wanted to learn

next and I vividly remember

CAREER CHOICE: Jude

Garrett started teaching in

1997 and spent nine years

at Cobham Intermediate

before returning to her

home town, Oamaru.

Nicholas not being swayed to

join any other group,” Garrett

said.

“He set up his own inquiry

about Genghis Khan and what

he was like as a leader.

The parallels are vaguely

there. Now he’s off doing these

amazing things, he’s making his

own path in the world.

“He was quite a strong, determined

young lad who knew his

mind and wanted to do what he

wanted to do.”

Garrett also recalled Mutch as

another student “that walked to

the beat of their own drum”.

They were those kind of kids,

it doesn’t surprise me they’re off

doing these things.”

With a personal connection

to Ukraine, Garrett admits she

now views the media coverage

through a different lens, as two

former students willingly place

themselves in danger to document

the conflict.

“It’s pretty frightening. Whenever

it comes up on the news I’m

looking at the photos . . . they’re

doing something that’s incredibly

scary, the world needs people

like that,” said Garrett, who

taught at Cobham Intermediate

between 2002 and 2011.

“I often say to kids, they are

the leaders of the future, they’re

the ones making a difference in

the world and these boys are a

prime example.”

House Sports day: colourful, loud, fun!

After some changes in Term 1 due to Covid restrictions, we were delighted to be able to hold our annual House Sports Day in

Term 2. It gives all the girls the opportunity to connect with others in their House and Ako, and have a day of fun - all with the

aim of earning House Points. The students competed in various activities, earning the all-important House Points along the way.

Activities included long and short distance running, sack race, long jump, basketball and a water activity. As is Villa tradition, the

day finished with our famous Spiral Relay, which sees the entire College compete in a colourful circular relay – a sight to behold!

Congratulations to Year 13 students

Ruthie Atherton and Flora Tafili, who

have been named the Ōtautahi regional

winners of the Programming Māori and

Pasifika Potential competition, with their

idea “RAFT”.

The competition focuses on solving

problems using digital technology as

a solution. At the regional final, groups

from schools around Ōtautahi shared

their business proposals and prototypes

to a panel of judges, which included

representatives from Air NZ Marketing,

Datacom, Microsoft Indigenous and the

Ministry of Education.

Ruthie and Flora’s concept is RAFT

Education - Te Moana-nui-a Kiwa,

The great Pacific Ocean that binds us

together. RAFT is an educational tool

targeting high school, tertiary students

and teachers on the forgotten, incorrect

and neglected parts of Māori and

Pasifika history that is significant to New

Zealand.

“We created a website/app that creates

an interactive learning environment for

those wanting to learn about events

such as, The Treaty of Waitangi, The

Mau Movement, Dawn Raids, and

Parihaka. We created a platform where

people can share their perspectives that

have been passed down, through iwi,

through villages and so forth,” explained

Ruthie.

“We wanted to create this tool for

people learning about Māori and

Pasifika history. They can come to our

website to be introduced to different

perspectives. We want everyone’s voices

to be heard.”

As well as being the Ōtautahi regional

winners, Ruthie and Flora also won

The Kōwhititinga Tangata Award

(Community Choice Award). The girls

will compete at Nationals in Napier

later in the year, where they will

further develop their business plan.

The national winners will receive seed

funding to bring their business to life.

Swimming:

Villa named Top Girls’

School

Villa Maria College has once again won the

award for Top Girls’ School at the Canterbury

Secondary Schools’ Swimming awards. Hope

Chmiel took out the award for Outstanding

Female Swimmer, and Bridie Quayle

was named in the Outstanding Junior

Swimmer Awards. These accolades follow

our swimmers’ incredible results at the

Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Swimming

Championships. Congratulations Hope and

Bridie, and all our Villa swimmers.

Year 12 Retreat at Living Springs

This term, our Year 12 students spent time at Living Springs for

their annual Retreat. Retreats are an important experience for

our students, where they spend time connecting as a group,

reflecting on themselves and their relationship with God.

On this Retreat the students involved themselves in a range

of activities that included Lectio Divina, formation around the

Sisters of Mercy and our College Charism, yoga, and a variety of

team building and personality tests to help them as they look to

expand on their Christian leadership roles in the College.

Bullying-Free

New Zealand Week

Bullying-Free New Zealand Week was

held in May in conjunction with Pink

Shirt Day. The week follows the theme

He kōtuinga mahi iti, he hua pai-ā rau:

Small ripples create big waves. At Villa,

each Ako group was challenged to

make a small ripple so that across the

College we felt a wave of kindness and

anti-bullying attitude. A wide range of

initiatives were undertaken and brought

a lot of positivity to the College.

This picture shows one of the ways in

which kindness was shown, by the creation

of a rainbow of positive messages.

Villa’s runners shine at CSS Road Race

Villa had a number of students compete in the recent Canterbury Secondary

Schools’ Road Race. Our runners had fantastic results, including an impressive 1st

place for Amelia Henstock in the Year 9 race; and 3rd place for Kobe Maslin also

in the Year 9 race. In the Senior Girls’ race Bridie Restieaux was 2nd and Rosaria

Gibson 4th! Villa also won the school teams Year 9 and Seniors races.

Great results in the CSS Cross Country

Villa’s runners competed at the Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Cross Country

championships earlier this term.

Congratulations to Amelia Henstock, who came 2nd in the Year 9 Race, and Kobi

Maslin who came 5th. In the Senior Girls’ Race, Bridie Restieaux came 3rd, and

Jarrah Prentice 12th.

Keeping our

community warm

this winter

Villa students are helping to keep

those in need warm this winter, by

donating a vast amount of good

quality blankets, winter clothing and

jackets to the Society of St Vincent

de Paul. The donated goods have

been distributed to families in need

who may be struggling to keep

warm this winter.

GARDENING

Try nemesia

if you want a

lot of colour

IF YOU HAVE an area in your

garden you’d like to blanket with

colour, then nemesia is the plant

for you.

It is a lovely small bedding

plant that can be used for edging,

in borders and as a ground cover

and, in the right conditions, will

produce so many flowers it’s hard

to see the greenery.

Growing to a height of around

20cm, it’s also lovely grown in

pots, hanging planters or any

other suitable growing container.

Nemesia seedlings come in

mixed colours. Bi-colour bundles

contain seedlings that will

produce flowers with more than

one colour on each flower. Some

are a mix of white and lavender,

yellow or pink and others are

just a mix of different colours.

A mixed bundle will produce all

sorts of different coloured flowers

including orange, white, red and

pink.

Wherever you decide to plant

your nemesia, try to ensure the

soil is rich and moist and that

the plants will be mostly in full

sun to part shade. Then simply

plant your seedlings around 15cm

apart from each other.

Depending on the weather,

in just five to six weeks you can

expect a beautiful array

of different coloured flowers

in your chosen garden bed or

container.

JUNE OFTEN brings the start

of rain and there is always cold

weather, but there is still plenty to

do in the garden such as pruning

and planting trees.

Here are some top tasks to keep

you busy and warm.

Now is the time to start planting

any pip and stone fruit trees.

New young trees are now available

in garden centres; ensure you

select healthy looking specimens.

Consider your planting areas

carefully, making sure your young

tree has full exposure to the sun

and is sheltered from strong prevailing

winds.

For existing pip and stone fruit

trees, you can now begin pruning.

Try to keep the tree height under

three metres to allow for easier

harvesting and netting of trees

where birds are a problem.

June is also a safe time to plant

new ornamental trees and shrubs.

Planting technique is important

to allow new plants to thrive

in both climatic extremes for

example wet winters and hot dry

summers. Also incorporate plenty

of compost into the soil when

planting new specimens. Spread

compost around existing trees

and shrubs to give them a boost.

Continue to keep sowing and

planting winter veges such as

broccoli, cabbage cauliflower,

peas and spinach to ensure a

continuous supply.

Protect empty garden beds by

sowing green manure crops for

example lupins. They protect the

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Prepare for spring planting

top soil from wind and water erosion

and add organic matter back

to the soil when dug in. Wait till

they are about 15-20cm high then

chop up with a spade as you dig

them back into the soil.

Prune roses when all the leaves

have fallen and apply a winter

clean up spray of copper oxychloride

or lime sulphur after

pruning. Remove and destroy

any diseased wood after pruning.

Replace any rose specimens that

have not performed adequately or

were heavily infected with black

spot or rust during the growing

season. Choose new varieties

from catalogues or visit your local

gardening centre.

HARDY: While

spring is the

traditional

time to plant

flowers and

vegetables,

trees and

shrubs can be

planted now.

June is an excellent time to plan

new gardens in your property in

preparation for spring planting. It

is a good idea to monitor future

garden areas for cold winds and

excessive moisture, as both conditions

will influence what you can

plant in that area.

Plant new shelter belts and or

hedges where they are required.

A lot of vegetables grow

happily through the cold weather.

Don’t forget, though, that winter

is also a good time to leave

some beds empty so that they

have a rest. It’s also a good season

to create some new vege beds.

The easy way to do this is to

start by constructing an aboveground

edging. Then fill the

enclosed bed with manure,

leaves, straw or grass clippings.

Leave this alone for a couple of

months and you’ll have the perfect

base for your spring plantings.

An additional sprinkling of

lime encourages biological activity

in the bed and will prove to be

beneficial for most veges.

Members of the cabbage family,

for example, chinese cabbages,

broccoli, cauliflowers and coldloving

brussels sprouts are ideally

suited to the winter garden.

Broad beans and peas grow

well in the winter months but

won’t always set their pods until

spring.

MINOR SUCCESS: Sydenham qualified top for the

Christchurch Metro Premier final series, but are intent to

celebrating a more significant victory. PHOTO: BILL KING ​

SYDENHAM’S team photo

after finishing the regular

season as top qualifiers for the

Christchurch Metro Premier

finals series was muted, the

trophy presentation was

downplayed.

“I can’t remember what it’s

called. No one remembers who

wins that cup,” said head coach

Ben Rhodes as the squad resets

for Saturday’s qualifying final

with Lincoln University.

While securing home advantage

and a second life was pleasing,

Rhodes was more intent on

Sydenham atoning for a rare loss

– one of only two in the regular

season – to Lincoln University.

They did a bit of a job on us,”

Rhodes said, of the 37-20 setback

on June 11.

They’re a very good team

at taking their opportunities.

They play fast footy and they are

coached really well.

They’re going to be a massive

game for us, you’ve got to beat

them at some stage to keep moving

forward.”

The winners of the qualifying

finals – second seeded New

Brighton host champions Marist

Albion in the other top four

clash – have a week off to prepare

for the semi-finals; the losers face

the winner of elimination finals.

Rhodes was aware top seed

offered no guarantees – Lincoln

University led the regular season

in 2021 but sixth-ranked Marist

Albion claimed the grand prize.

Sydenham qualified fourth last

season and were bounced out by

Linwood and eventual runnersup

Burnside.

“Any of the top eight can do

the job on the day,” he said.

Sydenham warmed up for the

knockout rounds with a 59-7 win

over Belfast; Lincoln University

relegated HSOB – 34-28 losers to

New Brighton – to fifth by beating

Christchurch 39-8.

Marist Albion stalwart Rowan

O’Gorman finally eclipsed former

Canterbury prop Tala Kele’s

330 games for the club when he

started at hooker in the 48-21

win over Sumner.

O’Gorman, who earned

promotion from division two for

his milestone, justified selection

with two tries.

The boys put on a good performance,

that’s all we wanted,”

said O’Gorman, who made his

senior debut in 2000.

The elimination finals pit

HSOB (fifth) against Christchurch

(eight) and Linwood (sixth)

play Shirley (seventh) with the

loser exiting title contention.

In the eight-team women’s

premiership competition top

qualifiers Christchurch retained

the title by beating University of

Canterbury 38-25 at Nga Puna

Wai on Saturday night.

Christchurch and University

of Canterbury advanced to the

decider in contrasting style, with

the champions swamping High

School Old Boys 100-5.

University of Canterbury had

a tougher outing, edging Lincoln

University 24-20.

Lincoln University claimed the

third and fourth play-off, beating

HSOB 24-17.

Football

Christchurch United sharpshooter

Daniel Maclennan was

cast as hero and potential villain

as the Southern League leaders

extended their perfect competition

record in spite of a red card

for a key goalscorer.

Maclennan ultimately scored

the decisive goal on the hour

mark of a 4-3 cliffhanger at Dunedin

City Royals last Saturday,

but he also endured an anxious

wait on the sidelines after being

sent off for a studs-up challenge

with 22 minutes to play.

The forward was shown a

straight red for the tackle to take

some gloss from two goals and

an assist.

There was also a seven goal

thriller in Rolleston, where Selwyn

United finally celebrated their

first league win of the season at

Coastal Spirit’s expense.

The signs were ominous for

Selwyn with Jamie Carrodus

suspended plus Luke Pritchard

and Aiden Barbour-Ryan in the

process of transferring to Coastal

and Cashmere Technical respectively

but returning veteran Dan

Ede played a key role after being

coaxed back into action.

He scored a 68th minute penalty

before Luke Jerkovic fired

home the botched clearance of

an Ede cross deep in added time

- from the restart after Cameron

Rean drilled a free kick to draw

Coastal level at 3-3.

The loss continued a tough run

of results for Coastal, who have

only one win from 11 games –

and six draws – to sit sixth.

In other games, Ferrymead

Bays extended their unbeaten

run in the league to six games

with a 4-0 win over Mosgiel

Thursday June 30 2022 The Star 29

Electric BMW a glimpse into the future

WITH THE ever increasing

number of electric vehicles

pouring out of the global

automobile factories, so has

conventional design gone out the

window.

I first noticed futuristic looks

were developing when I evaluated

Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 late last

year, now BMW has escaped the

constraints of normal design associated

with having an internal

combustion engine under the

bonnet. It has pushed out the

envelope, the fully electric iX

series is landing here in sizeable

numbers and it is bold and brash

all through.

The exterior is blunt up front,

the characteristic BMW kidney

grille is intact, but it captures

attention with its flat, enclosed

structure and triangular shapes.

All through the vehicle there is

an emphasis on polygons and

geometric patterns, and with

the huge amount of electronic

componentry the inside look is

minimalistic, it is clean, sharp

and manipulated largely by touch

surfaces.

It may sound like a mishmash

of ideas, but in reality it all works

quite neatly and nicely. But there

are elements that are ‘in your

face’ and it may take some time

to warm to all of it. The optional

bright blue seat belts that contrast

STATEMENT: The BMW iX xDrive40 has styling cues that

go beyond conventional design.

BMW iX xDRIVE40: Large sport utility vehicle powered solely by batteries and electric motors.

to the rest of the interior colour

and patterns take some getting

used to. Different colour mixtures

can be ordered, but I just felt the

blue was too striking.

That aside, the iX xDrive40 is

a wonderful piece of engineering.

The evaluation car lists at

$169,600, if you want the epitome

of luxury, performance and

distance of travel the iX M60 will

take you 566km on single charge

but will set you back $238,900.

The iX xDrive50 sits in-between

at $204,800 and it’s good for up to

630km. If you are thinking the iX

xDrive40 is the poorer cousin of

the series, then that’s simply not

the case, it is an exceptional sport

utility vehicle that will satisfy the

demands of any electric vehicle

owner.

The 40 offers a lot for the

money. It has everything you

would expect to find in an SUV

– petrol powered or electric – it

cocoons the occupants in luxury,

and although there is no leather,

the fabric trim on the evaluation

car was amazing, its by far

the seat covering I would choose

and, what’s more, you still get the

warmth through seat squab and

backrest heaters.

Other notable items of fitment

include full panoramic roof,

head-up display, push-button door

opening buttons, and electric everything;

seat adjustment is done

from buttons on the door proper,

making travel comfortable and

convenient for all occupants has

been a manufacturing priority.

The whole driving experience

is user-friendly, there are no conventional

controls, to start operation

requires the push of a button,

and to enter drive mode means a

flick of a centre console-mounted

switch. Thereafter, movement is

normal, there is good loading on

the steering wheel, while momentum

is ushered in solidly and

smoothly. Well, that’s no surprise,

drive is seamless, the electric

motor winds up quickly to create

considerable force.

As you would expect, the iX

xDrive40 is quick – a 6.1sec

standstill to 100km/h acceleration

time is claimed by BMW. It

will also lunge through a highway

overtake in 3.8sec (80-120km/h).

Acceleration is forceful and

somewhat delightful, there’s a

surge of energy at all points that

is rather wilful and tempting, and

this from the entry-level model in

the line-up. The 50 and iX M60

have times of 4.6sec and 3.8sec to

meet the legal limit respectively.

Even so, the iX xDrive40 isn’t

disgraced, it is pleasing to have

that muscle on tap. However, I

didn’t overly use the energy greatly,

I was far more focussed on how

far I could travel in the evaluation

• Price – BMW iX xDrive40,

$169,600

• Dimensions – Length,

4953mm; width, 1967mm;

height, 1695mm

• Configuration – Two

motors, four-wheel-drive,

240kW, 630Nm, onespeed

automatic

car, given battery charge depletion

in an electric vehicle is always on

my mind.

In terms of charging, it comes

with the standard cables – one for

plugging into a DC charge port,

and an AC 3-pin cable for a domestic

outlet. I used the latter all

the time and it’s fair to say an extra

metre or two in length would

have been ideal. Some car makers

include cables of generous length,

I’d be looking for something a bit

longer to suit my unique situation

in terms of where I take power

from. Of course, a designated

wallbox for the home is the ideal

solution.

That aside, it’s all a very simple

process to charge and one that

certainly becomes habit. Arriving

home after each journey I

plugged in to keep 100 per cent

showing.

The iX xDrive40 is big and

heavy –almost 5m and 2440kg

– there’s no denying that, but it

drives easily and there’s no feeling

of bulk, the driving aids certainly

help with that, and if a corner is

presented a little on the quick side

there is a secure and stable feeling

from underneath.

Huge tyres help, Pirelli

PZeros are fitted, and with a 22in

diameter there is a lot of rubber

on the road, and I consider these

to be some of the best tyres available.

Contributing to that feel of

sure-footedness is the drive that

connects all four wheels. Well,

there are two electric motors, one

up front and one at the rear, they

communicate with each other to

provide the best available grip on

all road surfaces.

The global bid to reduce vehicle

emissions and thereby create a

healthier planet is showing no

signs of slowing, instead it is

ramping up dramatically and the

groundswell is suggesting electricity

is the way forward in terms

of personal and public transport.

With that, technology is

changing rapidly to keep pace.

What BMW has created in the

iX series is just a hint of what

we can expect going forward. As

economies of scale kick in, the

average income buyer may be

able to sample that further down

the track.

Exterior Renovation

and Landscaping

While renovating the interior of your home

creates a comfortable living environment

and improves its re-sale potential, the

outside of the property is equally important.

Remember, first impressions count!

Creating an attractive outdoor environment

may involve landscaping, plantings, decks,

pergolas, garaging, fencing, paths, entrance

and driveway, in addition to the exterior

decoration of the house itself. However, be

careful not to over-capitalise on elaborate

landscaping, if a simple make-over can

achieve a desirable effect.

Draw up plans and a budget for the areas

you plan to re-develop. Ensure any additional

structures such as garaging, decks,

retaining walls and fences have the required

permits and seek advice on the ideal building

materials and methods.

Planting

Discuss with your local garden centre or

nursery which plants will best suit the size

sun and situation of your section and don’t

design a labour intensive garden if your

lifestyle won’t allow you the time to look

after it!

Fences and Gates

These should provide privacy and security,

while also allowing access to the property for

visitors. Try to choose fence and gate styles

that complement the age and style of your

home. Consider additional aspects such as

light, cost, maintenance, traffic noise and

street appeal when making your selection.

Entrance

throughout Christchurch

The entrance to your house should be a focal

point to welcome visitors, provide easy access

aspects of the property. Whether a traditional

verandah, a glass porch, canvas canopy,

pillared portico or simply an attractive front

door and steps, ensure the colours, shape,

style and surfaces and in keeping with the

original architecture.

Decks, Patios and Courtyards

The New Zealand climate has always

encouraged exterior extensions to the

house whether a colonial verandah, timber

deck, paved patio or European courtyard.

Screened for shelter and privacy they are

attractive “outdoor rooms” for recreation,

entertaining and outdoor dining and a sure

way to enhance the value of almost any

home.

Garages and Carports

Depending on the age of your home, garage

space may be a problem is there is insufficient

access to the side or rear of the house.

It may be possible to construct a garage or

carport close to the street frontage. In order
