Nightmares of a massive tree falling on them wake 5-year-old Dalin Mathew and his mother Selma George every night.
On January 22, a 15 metre-high willow tree crashed down on them as they watched jet boats roar through the Shotover River in Queenstown.
"Kia ora – Angela Boulton from New World Timaru here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?
My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is the Starborough Sauvignon Blanc. I have worked at New World for 18 years, and I’ve been Liquor Manager for 12 years. I’ve seen and tasted some incredible award-winning wines, and this year is by far my favourite. This Sauvignon Blanc is so fruity on the palate, with flavours of lime and feijoa. It’s a perfect match with cheese and fruit platters for the upcoming summer months.”

Ngāi Tahu Tourism has been awarded $200,000 toward a pilot project converting one of its petrol-powered twin-V8 engine jet boats to 100 per cent electric.
If the trial is successful, the company will consider introducing the technology to Shotover Jet and potentially its jet boat fleet in Queenstown, Glenorchy, Hollyford Valley and Taupō.
