SUMNER WAVE’S rise<br />

up the Christchurch<br />

Metro Premier table has<br />

continued with an amazing<br />

comeback win over Sydenham<br />

at the weekend.<br />

Sumner’s 35-26 win was<br />

personified by centre Waitangi<br />

Tuisaga’s late 70-m intercept<br />

try to seal the upset win.<br />

It puts the Wave fifth on<br />

the table.<br />

They play eighth-placed<br />

Linwood at home on Saturday,<br />

which is also Sumner’s club<br />

day.<br />

Sumner trailed 26-7 at the<br />

break against the competition<br />

leader. After defending their<br />

line early in the second half,<br />

the Wave put on 28 unanswered<br />

points in the final halfhour.<br />

The Wave, who have won<br />

their last three games, are now<br />

level on points with Marist Albion<br />

and Canterbury University<br />

but behind both on points<br />

difference. They are just one<br />

point behind Sydenham who<br />

are now second after Saturday’s<br />

loss and Burnside’s win over<br />

Christchurch.<br />

The Wave meets Linwood on<br />

Saturday, who have lost three<br />

in a row, coincidentally against<br />

the same three teams Sumner<br />

have beaten in recent weeks –<br />

Shirley, Sydenham and Marist<br />

Albion.<br />

Kick-off at St Leonard’s<br />

Square is at 2.45pm after the<br />

Colts side play Linwood at 1pm.<br />

Wastewater<br />

plan brings<br />

an irrigation<br />

benefit for<br />

golf club<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

THE PLAN to discharge<br />

wastewater under the golf course at<br />

Duvauchelle is being described as a<br />

“win-win” by the club.<br />

The wastewater will travel<br />

through underground pipes and<br />

irrigate the course through sprayers<br />

and drip holes.<br />

Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū Banks<br />

Peninsula Community Board<br />

members were briefed about the<br />

irrigation plan on Monday. Chair<br />

Lyn Leslie said the update was useful<br />

for future board consideration.<br />

Said Akaroa Golf Club president<br />

Ken Elliott: “We’ve always<br />

looked at the beneficial reuse of<br />

wastewater. We see it as a real<br />

benefit to the golf course because<br />

we dry up really badly, particularly<br />

in the summertime.’’<br />

The irrigation is part of the<br />

council’s controversial wastewater<br />

treatment scheme which includes a<br />

treatment plant on Old Coach Rd.<br />

The overall scheme has come under<br />

fire by environmentalists after<br />

a report by engineering consultant<br />

Beca showed the proposed system<br />

was inadequate to contain all of<br />

Akaroa’s wastewater.<br />

Fewer crashes on SH75 since<br />

speed reduction, data shows<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

CRASH DATA suggests lower<br />

speed limits have reduced<br />

crashes on the length of State<br />

Highway 75 by about 20 per cent.<br />

Transportation expert Glen<br />

Koorey crunched the numbers<br />

and found in the three years<br />

before the speed limit decrease<br />

to 80km/h in September 20<strong>22</strong>,<br />

there was an average of 10.3 fatal<br />

or serious injuries per year<br />

along SH75 from Halswell to<br />

Akaroa.<br />

In the 19 months since, the<br />

numbers have dropped to 8.2<br />

serious injuries a year, with no<br />

deaths.<br />

The data retrieved by Koorey<br />

is for the entire state<br />

highway and did not<br />

differentiate between the<br />

Halswell to Little River<br />

and Little River to Akaroa<br />

stretches.<br />

It comes after <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News revealed<br />

Banks Peninsula MP<br />

Vanessa Weenink had<br />

changed her mind on<br />

increasing the SH75 speed<br />

limit after reviewing data from<br />

rural Canterbury area police<br />

Glen<br />

Koorey<br />

commander Peter Cooper,<br />

which they say shows a decrease<br />

in crashes after the speed limit<br />

change.<br />

Koorey is the principal<br />

transportation engineer and<br />

planner for civil engineering<br />

company ViaStrada and accessed<br />

the figures from NZ Transport<br />

Agency Waka<br />

Kotahi’s crash<br />

analysis system.<br />

He believes it<br />

shows the lower<br />

speed limit has<br />

worked in reducing<br />

crashes.<br />

“It might still be<br />

early days, but this<br />

repeats the results I<br />

have seen everywhere else across<br />

New Zealand where safer speed<br />

limits have been introduced,<br />

Vanessa<br />

Weenink<br />

casualties go down.”<br />

Weenink said the 20 per cent<br />

figure was a smaller decrease<br />

than in the data she received<br />

from Cooper, but it still showed<br />

the speed limit change has been<br />

effective.<br />

“Twenty per cent is a lot. It’s a<br />

trend that’s probably significant.”<br />

She said her<br />

National-led coalition<br />

Government has still not<br />

set a date for reviewing<br />

state highway speed<br />

limits as part of its<br />

‘Accelerate NZ’ plan.<br />

In Weenink’s view,<br />

safety is of “prominent”<br />

importance when<br />

reviewing the limit, but<br />

not the only consideration.<br />

“If there was only a one per<br />

cent decrease, it would be<br />

SAFETY: Debate<br />

continues on<br />

whether State<br />

Highway 75<br />

should have<br />

increased speed<br />

limits again.<br />

PHOTO: RNZ<br />

different than with the more<br />

significant numbers we’re<br />

seeing,” she said.<br />

Koorey said lowering speed<br />

limits was most effective in reducing<br />

the severity of crashes.<br />

“Lots of other things might<br />

cause crashes, but your travelling<br />

speed determines the resulting<br />

outcome.”<br />

He said this also applied on<br />

straighter section from Halswell<br />

to Little River.<br />

“I get the concerns on the bits<br />

where you’ve got pretty long<br />

straights, but there are a lot of<br />

sharp corners as well. People<br />

don’t necessarily take those well<br />

after they’ve been zooming along<br />

the straight.”<br />

Koorey said the importance<br />

of road safety outweighed the<br />

impact of slower travel times.<br />

The Book That Broke the World The Library<br />

Trilogy #2 by Mark Lawrence<br />

The second volume in the bestselling, ground-breaking Library<br />

Trilogy, following The Book That Wouldn’t Burn. We fight for the<br />

people we love. We fight for the ideas we want to be true.<br />

Evar and Livira stand side by side and yet far beyond each<br />

other’s reach. Evar is forced to flee the library, driven before<br />

an implacable foe. Livira, trapped in a ghost world, has to<br />

recover her book if she’s to return to her life. While Evar’s<br />

journey leads him outside into the vastness of a world he’s<br />

never seen, Livira’s destination lies deep inside her own writing,<br />

where she must wrestle with her stories in order to reclaim the volume in<br />

which they were written. And all the while, the library quietly weaves thread<br />

to thread, bringing the scattered elements of Livira’s old life – friends and foe<br />

alike – back together beneath new skies. Long ago, a lie was told, and with<br />

the passing years it has grown and spread, a small push leading to a chain<br />

of desperate consequences. Now, as one edifice topples into the next with<br />

ever-growing violence, it threatens to break the world. The secret war that<br />

defines the library has chosen its champions and set them on the board. The<br />

time has come when they must fight for what they believe, or lose everything.<br />

The Library Trilogy is about many things: adventure, discovery, and romance,<br />

but it’s also a love letter to books and the places where they live. The focus is<br />

on one vast and timeless library, but the love expands to encompass smaller<br />

more personal collections, and bookshops of all shades too.<br />

Nothing Significant To Report A Kiwi soldier’s<br />

hilarious true stories of mischief and misadventure in the<br />

New Zealand Army by Dario Nustrini<br />

Laugh-out-loud yarns from a soldier in the New Zealand Army When new<br />

recruit Dario Nustrini’s head was freshly shaved in preparation for the army,<br />

he knew nothing about what training to fight, kill and die for New Zealand<br />

would look like. Since leaving leaving high school the year before, he had<br />

been on a steady diet of spliffs, Speights and the occasional sandwich from<br />

the cafe he worked at as a waiter. He weighed about as much as an empty<br />

pillowcase, with slightly less insulation from the cold. Nothing Significant to<br />

Report is the brilliantly entertaining and unvarnished truth of what life is like<br />

in the New Zealand Army. From back-breaking exercises designed to make<br />

recruits spit the dummy to roleplaying in an SAS manhunt and accidentally<br />

starting a rubbish fire in a military compound, these are self-deprecating tales<br />

of misfits, mischief and camaraderie. When Dario is deployed to war-torn<br />

Iraq, what will he think of the role he has spent five years preparing for?<br />

• From page 1<br />

The project team is preparing<br />

an application for resource<br />

consent to discharge treated<br />

wastewater through land. The<br />

application will be lodged with<br />

Environment Canterbury in<br />

November.<br />

The new plant will replace the<br />

existing plant at Takapūneke<br />

Reserve and end the current<br />

practice of discharging wastewater<br />

into Akaroa <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

The golf club leases the<br />

course from<br />

the city<br />

council.<br />

Elliot said<br />

the city council<br />

will pay for<br />

installing the<br />

irrigation<br />

infrastructure,<br />

while the golf<br />

club will pay for<br />

future maintenance<br />

costs.<br />

He is unsure how much it<br />

will cost the golf club.<br />

The wastewater scheme also<br />

plans to irrigate areas of native<br />

trees and plants at Hammond<br />

Point and Robinsons <strong>Bay</strong>.<br />

Elliot feels positive about the<br />

plan and the city council’s consultation<br />

so far, but he stressed<br />

the importance of wastewater<br />

being treated to the “highest<br />

possible standards’’.<br />

Club president positive about plan<br />

Gavin<br />

Hutchinson<br />

QUENCHED: The Akaroa Golf Club course will be irrigated through sprayers and drip<br />

holes from underground pipes. Treated wastewater from the proposed Old Coach<br />

Rd plant will be discharged on land instead of into the harbour.<br />

with the golf club on March 21,<br />

mostly to discuss the feasibility<br />

of the proposed spray system.<br />

The golf club is now waiting<br />

for the consents process to<br />

conclude before any further<br />

planning takes place.<br />

“This is a very long-term<br />

plan, which we think uses some<br />

very modern techniques. It<br />

might not get done until 2029.”<br />

Acting head of three waters<br />

Gavin Hutchison told The Press<br />

the city council was confident<br />

the design of the wastewater<br />

scheme would meet its intended<br />

objectives.<br />

He said the city council has<br />

been making adjustments<br />

based on the Beca report’s<br />

findings.<br />

“There have been some large<br />

storms measured during these<br />

times, and council has taken<br />

this into account with regards<br />

to the proposed treated wastewater<br />

storage proposed.”

Simple sport bringing women together<br />

• By Emily O’Hagan<br />

A FIT AND ACTIVE group of<br />

women has been coming together<br />

every week in Lyttelton to socialise<br />

and exercise over a casual game of<br />

catchball.<br />

The team sport was originally<br />

created by women for women in<br />

Israel in the early 2000s.<br />

Antje Schmidt introduced the<br />

Lyttelton community to the game<br />

last year and says women of all<br />

skill levels can play it.<br />

“For middle-aged women, it’s<br />

quite hard to be part of a team<br />

sport. So if you Google it, there’s<br />

really nothing available for if you<br />

are late-20s to whatever age.”<br />

The team of 13 play every<br />

Thursday night at the Lyttelton<br />

Recreation Centre.<br />

Catchball looks a bit like volleyball<br />

when played, with two teams<br />

of six each lining up on either side<br />

of a net. The ball is then caught<br />

and passed before being thrown<br />

Schmidt believes a lot of women<br />

just want to be a part of something<br />

and catchball provides them with<br />

the opportunity to take part in a<br />

relaxed activity.<br />

“I think catchball especially,<br />

gives women the freedom to<br />

come, to join other ladies, make<br />

friends, have fun, do some exercise,<br />

get back into shape.”<br />

The first session is free, so<br />

Made with the support<br />

of NZ On Air<br />

people can test it out to see if they<br />

enjoy playing.<br />

Team member Iuliane<br />

Botnarenco said it’s a lot of fun.<br />

“It’s not difficult to learn, even if<br />

you haven’t played before. It’s easy<br />

to catch up and develop skills.”<br />

Players are encouraged to<br />

socialise outside of the weekly<br />

games. Botnarenco said she has<br />

made many friends through<br />

catchball.<br />

“We actually love catching<br />

up. After a term, we usually get<br />

together somewhere for supper or<br />

for a drink.”<br />

Although she has been struggling<br />

to find facilities to hire,<br />

Schmidt is keen to bring catchball<br />

to other areas so women have a<br />

space to hang out together, have<br />

fun and get fit.<br />

Babies get the gift of winter woolies<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

CUDDLY CLOTHES are being<br />

delivered to babies in need.<br />

Generous Lyttelton bays<br />

knitters are stitching fit-for-size<br />

bonnets and singlets for premature<br />

infants in Christchurch<br />

Hospital’s neonatal unit.<br />

Most knit from home, but last<br />

week the first Knit and Natter<br />

event took place at the Lyttelton<br />

Community House, which aims<br />

to bring the group together.<br />

Community house social<br />

worker Wendy Joy went through<br />

a premature birth herself more<br />

than 20 years ago.<br />

“Knowing how precious those<br />

singlets and hats are, they’re often<br />

something we keep forever.”<br />

Joy was inspired by similar<br />

knitting initiatives taking place<br />

in the North Island and her own<br />

personal experience.<br />

“We decided to see if the community<br />

wanted to get involved,<br />

aiming at some people who might<br />

be isolated in their homes but still<br />

want to be part of something.”<br />

So far, there are 13 people knitting<br />

for the initiative, which Joy<br />

hopes will increase.<br />

“One lady who is a really<br />

skillful knitter has developed a<br />

pattern to match the singlets. So<br />

what started off as just singlets is<br />

now a singlet and bonnet set.”<br />

35% OFF<br />

Honeycomb<br />

The group has encouraged each<br />

other to share their own experiences<br />

with premature births.<br />

“Lots of really beautiful sharing<br />

of stories like women who have<br />

grandchildren born premature<br />

and are achieving great things in<br />

life now,” she said.<br />

Joy wants to fill at least two<br />

bags worth of clothes, so the<br />

group can donate a large number<br />

to the hospital at once.<br />

Women and children’s health<br />

service manager Michele Pringle<br />

said the hospital is grateful for<br />

the additional supply.<br />

“Woollen clothing is essential<br />

for our slightly bigger pre-term<br />

babies.<br />

“When they are smaller, they<br />

are nursed in incubators to keep<br />

them warm. Once they move into<br />

a cot, we rely on woollen clothing<br />

to help these babies regulate their<br />

temperature while they grow and<br />

mature.”<br />

Joy hopes more knitters, of any<br />

experience, will join the initiative.<br />

“The beauty of it is, you don’t<br />

have to come here to do it. You<br />

can do it in your own home but<br />

still be a part of something.”<br />

Knit and Natter runs from<br />

10am to noon on Mondays and<br />

Tuesdays at the community<br />

house.<br />

Leaf-grinding ‘goat’ is on the job<br />

THERE’S A new “goat” in town,<br />

and its rolling around the streets<br />

helping munch through the<br />

blanket of autumn leaves.<br />

City council contractors are<br />

busy with leaf fall season under<br />

way now till July.<br />

But this year they’ve got a<br />

new tool in their kit – a few new<br />

trucks, including one nicknamed<br />

the “goat”.<br />

“We’re always looking for<br />

ways to work more efficiently<br />

throughout leaf fall season. One<br />

of the trucks on our roads can<br />

now grind the leaves into small<br />

pieces, which is why they’ve<br />

called it the goat,” city streets<br />

maintenance manager Steve Guy<br />

said.<br />

“It also reduces the number of<br />

times they have to empty a load<br />

so they can do more streets at a<br />

time.”<br />

There’s also another new truck<br />

rolling around Christchurch<br />

streets with a remote-controlled<br />

snorkel.<br />

“This new truck means we no<br />

longer need a person on the road<br />

manually moving the snorkel<br />

around. The person who previously<br />

operated the snorkel can<br />

instead use a leaf blower to direct<br />

leaves into an area where the<br />

snorkel can reach like around<br />

cars,” Guy said.<br />

And a final new truck set to<br />

be launched at the end of the<br />

month, dubbed “Noo-Noo” after<br />

the vacuum in the 90s television<br />

show The Teletubbies.<br />

“Noo-Noo is going to be a<br />

great addition for our contactors.<br />

One of these holds about the<br />

same amount of leaves as three<br />

smaller trucks.”<br />

Guy said it’s important for<br />

people to remember that contractors<br />

are not able to sweep all<br />

of the leaves in the city.<br />

“We’ve got five trucks moving<br />

through 980 high leaf fall areas<br />

throughout the city so our teams<br />

focus on areas where the leaves<br />

inhibit stormwater, compromise<br />

safety and inhibit the growth of<br />

underlying plants.”<br />

Guy said residents shouldn’t<br />

worry if a sweeper truck leaves<br />

halfway through a street.<br />

“This doesn’t mean they’re<br />

done with the job, just that the<br />

truck is full and needs to be<br />

emptied,” he said.<br />

“Please be patient. Our<br />

teams work hard to clear leaves<br />

as quickly as possible, but<br />

sometimes heavy rainfall or high<br />

winds can cause more leaves to<br />

fall in a shorter period. We don’t<br />

want to receive reports of abuse<br />

when our teams are simply doing<br />

their jobs.”<br />

• If you are concerned<br />

about leaf litter contact<br />

app<br />

NO KIDDING: The city council has new trucks clearing leaf litter, including one that<br />

grinds leaves and another with a remote controlled snorkel. PHOTOS: NEWSLINE<br />

How you can help<br />

• Reduce build-up by<br />

clearing leaves from your<br />

own berm and garden and<br />

putting them into your<br />

green bin.<br />

• Put leaves in your<br />

compost or pile them at<br />

the back of garden to break<br />

down.<br />

• Please don’t dispose of<br />

your leaves after your street<br />

has been cleared and then<br />

call up for the street to be<br />

swept again. This slows<br />

down contractors.<br />

POSITIVE IMPACT: Ferrymead<br />

<strong>Bay</strong>s Football Club has<br />

received a Sumner Ferrymead<br />

Foundation community grant.<br />

Football club gets grant to foster juniors<br />

THE SUMNER Ferrymead<br />

Foundation has found another<br />

worthy community grant<br />

recipient in the Ferrymead <strong>Bay</strong>s<br />

Football Club. The club has been<br />

awarded a grant to buy practice<br />

equipment for its junior league.<br />

With this donation, the<br />

foundation hopes to support<br />

the club in its continual growth<br />

and improve the experiences<br />

of junior players through the<br />

acquisition of high-quality<br />

equipment.<br />

The club’s community<br />

development manager, Ren<br />

Cameron, told the foundation<br />

Ferrymead <strong>Bay</strong>s boasts an<br />

impressive membership of about<br />

700, with the youngest aged<br />

four and the oldest 72. He said<br />

<strong>22</strong>0 are juniors, who will be the<br />

beneficiaries of this round of<br />

funding.<br />

The positive impacts of the<br />

club are not only limited to play<br />

on the field. It serves as a hub<br />

for creating social connections<br />

between players, who reside<br />

in the same community but<br />

may attend different schools.<br />

This offers the opportunity and<br />

enables friendship and teamwork<br />

between many people with<br />

differing backgrounds.<br />

Beyond physical fitness,<br />

the club values leadership,<br />

co-operation and quick<br />

thinking, enriching the lives<br />

of its members beyond the<br />

confines of the field – the bonds<br />

of camaraderie built between<br />

players persist rain or shine and<br />

can last a lifetime.<br />

Young people who are both<br />

physically fit and confident,<br />

develop quick wits and know<br />

how to co-operate in a team are<br />

the most valuable resource to<br />

any community, and indeed to<br />

their country as a whole. For<br />

these reasons, the foundation<br />

believes supporting the football<br />

a place in local football clubs<br />

by providing fully funded<br />

celebrate 30 years of helping the<br />

16 <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News Wednesday <strong>May</strong> <strong>22</strong> <strong>2024</strong><br />

Smooth, silent, wickedly quick IONIQ 6<br />

WHO WOULD have thought it<br />

was possible to create a model<br />

to upstage the show-stopping<br />

Hyundai IONIQ 5 EV launched<br />

a couple of years ago? Turns out<br />

Hyundai have done just that<br />

with the breathtakingly futuristic<br />

IONIQ 6.<br />

Sleek and distinctive, there is<br />

nothing on the market that looks<br />

like it. Achieving that is a major<br />

feather in Hyundai’s styling cap.<br />

This head-turner extraordinaire<br />

uses the company’s streamliner<br />

design, while its cocoon-like<br />

interior yields a remarkable<br />

amount of usable space. A super<br />

slippery drag coefficient of just<br />

0.21 allows the vehicle to slip<br />

almost unimpeded through the<br />

air. Its cutting-edge electric drive<br />

system can deliver depending<br />

on the model, a driving range of<br />

more than 500km.<br />

Last year, the IONIQ 6 won<br />

the prestigious 2023 World<br />

Car of the Year, World Electric<br />

Vehicle of the Year and for good<br />

measure, World Car Design of<br />

the Year.<br />

This first ever IONIQ 6 packs<br />

game-changing technologies<br />

into a sleek streamliner body<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

inspired by the Hyundai prophecy<br />

concept. The product of the<br />

Hyundai brand’s imagination, it’s<br />

the first sedan built on Hyundai’s<br />

Electrified-Global Modular Platform.<br />

This brings 800V architecture<br />

and the ability to rapid<br />

charge from 10 to 80 per cent in<br />

as little as 18 minutes.<br />

The IONIQ 6 is offered in<br />

three variants with two battery<br />

sizes, a 53 and 77.4kW/h, with<br />

rear-wheel drive and all-wheel<br />

drive power trains. The $79,990<br />

Entry model uses a modest<br />

53kW/h battery and makes<br />

111kW of power – not much a<br />

big car, but offers an impressive<br />

driving range of up to 429km.<br />

To calm your EV range anxiety<br />

levels there’s an Extended Range<br />

rear-wheel drive 77.4kW/h<br />

model. This offers more heft at<br />

168kW and has one of the best<br />

in class driving ranges of 614km.<br />

Both variants are fitted with<br />

18-inch wheels and low rolling<br />

resistance tyres.<br />

In Entry guise it retails for<br />

$94,990 with the higher spec<br />

Elite nudging the price up to<br />

$104,990.<br />

The twin motor 230kW<br />

all-wheel drive IONIQ 6 Limited<br />

supplied for this road test<br />

features a HTRAC all-wheel<br />

drive system, a driving range of<br />

up to 519km, and $124,990 asking<br />

price, which will cause few<br />

double gulps among some.<br />

The twin electric motor set up<br />

in the test car packs a mighty<br />

230kW of power but the number<br />

that really astounds, is the whopping<br />

605Nm of instant torque.<br />

This combo enables what is<br />

a sizeable vehicle to high tail<br />

it from 0-100km/h in a rapid<br />

5.2 seconds. Smooth, silent<br />

and wickedly quick it makes an<br />

undeniably strong argument to<br />

go EV.<br />

I expected wind and road<br />

noise to be amplified at highway<br />

speeds, but the car’s sleek and<br />

slippery shape largely eliminates<br />

unwanted ambient sounds such<br />

as this.<br />

The IONIQ 6 reimagines the<br />

cabin as a spacious and flexible<br />

living space featuring Hyundai<br />

New Zealand firsts – integrated<br />

digital side mirrors, interactive<br />

ambient lighting and eco-friendly<br />

sustainable materials. Many of<br />

the cabin’s touch points – seats,<br />

headliner, door trim, floor and<br />

armrest – use eco-friendly,<br />

sustainably sourced materials,<br />

such as recycled PET bottles and<br />

natural wool yarns. The car really<br />

does sport a green, eco-friendly<br />

aura.<br />

Ratings out of 10: Performance 7.5; Handling 7; Build<br />

Quality 7; Comfort 6; Passenger and Load Space 8; Avg fuel<br />

consumption on road test 6.2L/100km; Value for money 6;<br />

Safety – Five Star ANCAP crash rating.<br />

Overall points out of 10: 7.5<br />

The IONIQ 6 rides on the<br />

Hyundai dedicated Electric-<br />

Global Modular Platform. Like<br />

its twin, the IONIQ 5, it offers<br />

advanced connectivity and<br />

driver assistance features.<br />

A wide, configurable dual<br />

cockpit features a 12-inch, fulltouch<br />

infotainment screen, while<br />

a hoodless 12-inch digital gauge<br />

cluster can be customised to suit<br />

your individual requirements.<br />

There’s an Augmented Reality<br />

Head-Up Display that transforms<br />

the windscreen into a<br />

mega-size display screen. The<br />

IONIQ 6’s many features include<br />

Vehicle-to-Load technology,<br />

driver assistance systems and<br />

advanced connectivity with overthe-air<br />

software updates.<br />

Heading the safety charge<br />

for this is the next generation<br />

Hyundai Smart Sense advanced<br />

driver assistance system. This<br />

incorporates, among other<br />

things, forward collision avoidance<br />

assist, blind-spot collisionavoidance<br />

assist, driver attention<br />

warning and auto high beam that<br />

automatically dips the vehicles<br />

headlights when driving at night.<br />

One of the more innovative<br />

pieces of safety tech are the digital<br />

exterior mirrors; in place of<br />

the usual exterior wing mirrors<br />

are cameras. These relay crystal<br />

clear images of what’s happening<br />

behind and to the side of the<br />

vehicle, on to screens integrated<br />

into the left and right internal<br />

‘A’ pillars. Initially I found the<br />

system counter intuitive and kept<br />

looking at where I was expecting<br />

a rear exterior mirror only to<br />

find a camera. Once I broke this<br />

habit, I found this system works<br />

brilliantly. Different coloured<br />

dotted lines show how close<br />

nearby traffic is to your vehicle.<br />

If it’s a red broken line, they’re<br />

too close!<br />

This hefty vehicle with its wide<br />

stance locks assuredly to the<br />

road and body roll, even during<br />

brisk cornering, and is kept<br />

under a tight rein.<br />

A well-cushioned ride does a<br />

fine job of suppressing suspension<br />

noise at lower around-town<br />

speeds, and smoothed and<br />

soothed the test vehicle over<br />

even the worst patchwork and<br />

pot holed surfaces our road networks<br />

can dish up.<br />

This is a classy car – delightfully<br />

engaging and responsive to<br />

drive while its super cool looks,<br />

will be a deal clincher for many<br />

wavering would-be buyers.<br />

We need your help to fill our beds.<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s Centre has<br />

23 beds for tamariki to stay during<br />

times of whānau stress or crisis. On<br />

average just 17 of these beds are filled<br />

due to resourcing constraints.<br />

Every empty bed is a missed<br />

opportunity to support a child in need.<br />

Donate today to give Canterbury<br />

tamariki a safe place to sleep.<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s Centre provides<br />

short term emergency or planned respite care<br />

for tamariki when they need extra support due<br />

to complications at home.<br />

Cholmondeley is an independent charity<br />

and costs just under $3,000,000 per year to<br />

run. 20% of this figure is met by Government<br />

funding, and the remaining 80% comes from<br />

the generous support of the Canterbury<br />

community.<br />
