Seventeen-year-old who never came home

• By Sophie Cornish

IN HER Redcliffs home

overlooking the sea, you will

find Jan Bargrove, one of a small

handful of people still carrying

the Bargrove name.

Her late husband Robert

Bargrove was the great-nephew

of a young cadet whose life

was tragically cut short during

World War 1.

Tomorrow on Anzac Day,

he will be remembered,

along with more than 18,000

other New Zealanders who

lost their lives during the Great

War.

It was November 19, 1917,

and Geoffrey Bargrove was in

his element, the 17-year-old

was serving as an officer

cadet aboard the S.S. Aparima,

which was steaming from

London to Barry, in South

Wales.

A PLAN to bring seaplanes

into Lyttelton Harbour has left

Peninsula Air Ltd has applied

to the Civil Aviation Authority

to construct a waterdrome at the

harbour which would provide

seaplanes with

noise from the

seaplanes would disturb

residents.

“We live in a port town so

a certain amount of noise is

expected but it does not need to

be noisier than it already is,” he

said.

However, one of the company’s

directors Mark Christensen was

confident the impact on residents

would be minimal.

from the editor’s desk

TOMORROW IS Anzac Day when we

remember those who never returned home

from war.

We profile one of those poor souls,

Geoffrey Bargrove (page 1).

The 17-year-old cadet was from New

Brighton, and one of his family, Jan Bargrove, lives in Redcliffs.

Geoffrey was on the steamer Aparima, which was torpedoed

and sunk by a German submarine in the English Channel in

November 1917. The torpedo struck in the early hours of the

morning.

There was a high chance he would have been asleep with the

other young cadets on the vessel. They would have stood no

chance. Young lives taken well before their time.

So spare a thought tomorrow for young Geoffrey and the

others who went to war and never came home.

Concerns over noise

•From page 1

“We intend to use a

Cessna Caravan – its

turbine engine is quiet.

There are also noise rules

within both the Regional

Coastal Plan and the City

Plan which the activity will

need to meet.”

Mr Christensen said the

seaplanes would be used to

take people on scenic tours

of the peninsula.

“It is still very early days,

but we are thinking about

providing a service that

would complement all the

other tourist operations in

the peninsula.”

He hoped the project

would emulate the

Sydney seaplanes

experience.

“In concept, it is

a similar operation

to the Sydney one

involving a seaplane

that takes people on

scenic flights, if you

look at the Sydney

operation they also

deliver people to tourist

destinations as well.”

Civil and Naval owner

Louis Dyer shared Mr

Maynard’s concerns.

“THe pro is tourism and

Stephen Mateer

said he did not

“I couldn’t care

he said.

LYTTELTON’S town centre

could be set to receive a boost.

The city council has agreed

to ask Greater Christchurch

to remove a requirement in the

on-site parking.

said the current

requirements

are inhibiting

the area’s

development.

“What we have

got is a rule that

is impossible to

achieve. If you look at this in

terms of the Collett’s Corner

building, under the current

District Plan the parking

requirements for that site are to

provide 64 on-site car parks,” he

said.

Cr Turner said the current

regulations are scaring off

developers.

“We are now over eight years

on from the earthquakes and

there are still a number of gaps

on London St and a number of

these have already had buildings

planned for them but never

happened, often because the

development economics for them

did not work under the current

said. “This is not a problem for

Young cadet’s death ‘devastating blow’ for family

•From page 1

At 12 knots the steamer moved

slowly, it had recently been released

from troopship duties, due

to her slow pace.

It was early in the morning and

the ship was about 10km southwest

of Anvil Point, nearing the

Isle of Wight.

Below the deck, near the ship’s

stern, the cadets were in their

sleeping quarters.

At 12.50am, the Aparima met

her fate.

A German submarine, UB-40,

fired a torpedo, which slammed

into the ship’s stern.

It shuddered, and sank rapidly,

in a matter of minutes.

Geoffrey, who had only been

on the ship for three months,

died, along with 55 others, including

16 cadets. There were 110

men on board. It was one of the

worst losses of New Zealand lives

at sea during World War 1.

Except for the men on duty, the

crew woke to find chaos.

Of the three row boats that

were launched, one overturned

and survivors had to cling to it for

some time in the icy waters. Fiftyfour

men managed to survive.

The cadets aboard the ship

were not paid, but were provided

with seagoing experience on the

working cargo steamer.

Parents of the young men had

paid the Union Steamship Company

for their service.

A year before the ship’s last

voyage, the company had written

to the families of cadets about

increased dangers, given Germany’s

decision to wage unrestricted

warfare against merchant

shipping.

The company offered parents

the option to remove their boys

from ships.

However, few parents chose

that course, often because they

did not want to be seen as letting

their country down.

Cadets’ families saved hard to

send their boys to sea, in the hope

they would be repaid once their

sons entered the navy.

Geoffrey’s death was a “devastating

blow” for his family; he was

the youngest of four children.

As one of the last few living

Bargroves in Christchurch, Mrs

Bargrove has Geoffrey’s memorial

plaque, also known as a ‘dead

man’s penny,’ which was given to

next of kin of every person who

died at sea during the war.

Mr Bargrove, was a joiner and

woodwork teacher and made an

ornament out of it, by placing

it inside a small wooden ship’s

wheel, which she continues to

clean and maintain.

“My husband did it years ago,

putting the wheel around it. It’s

beautiful. I have heard of other

people with the pennies, but

not anyone who has put it into a

ship’s wheel,” she said.

TRAGIC

LOSS: New

Brighton

Geoffrey

Bargrove

was aboard

the S.S.

Aparima

when it

was sunk in

November,

1917.

The couple have three children,

one son named Grant who had

two boys, who will carry on the

Bargrove name.

Tomorrow will be Mrs Bargrove’s

first Anzac Day without

her husband, and she plans to

spend it with family in Akaroa.

Geoffrey was survived by his

brother Stanley, who was a radio

operator during the war, and two

sisters, Violet and Grace.

They lived in New Brighton,

running his father Robert’s business,

Bargroves Drapery and

Clothing Emporium on Seaview

Rd.

Geoffrey attended New Brighton

District School prior to Christ’s

College and received prizes for

attendance in 1912 and 1913.

Fire rages, homes at risk

He was posthumously awarded

the British War Medal and the

Mercantile Marine Medal.

He is commemorated in a

stained glass window at The Arts

Centre, as well as London’s Tower

Hill Memorial for Merchant Marine

casualties, who have no grave.

He is incorrectly recorded there

as Bargrove, Cadet T, instead of

Bargrove, Cadet G.

Coastal Ward city councillor

David East is also a descendant of

the Bargrove family.

His grandfather was Stanley

Bargrove, Geoffrey’s brother.

“My great-grandparents were

still alive (when Geoffrey passed),

I think it was quite a devastating

blow to the family. He was

never really spoken of . . . for my

great-grandparents, it was a bitter

blow.”

Cr East called the story a “dark

and murky part of history.”

“We never really found out a

huge amount about the family

. . . it was probably just how death

was treated in those days. You

had a period of grieving and

mourning for someone who was

lost, but you didn’t commemorate

it eternally afterwards.”

As for the Aparima, she lies

on the seafloor, 42m deep off

the south coast of England. It is

possible to dive down to see the

wreck.

Tiny houses up for sale

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Louis Day

TINY HOUSES made by carpentry

students will be auctioned off at

Ray White Ferrymead next month.

The auction will take place on

May 18 at noon.

The two double-glazed, fully

insulated buildings were made by

Ara carpentry students between

the ages of 16 and 18.

The proceeds made from the

auction will be put towards

funding a trip to Fiji where

students will build homes for those

affected by the tropical cyclones.

Ara carpentry tutor Mick

Cooke said he was blown away

by the effort shown from his 20

students.

“The students have done a great

job and I take my hat off to them.

They have done everything a

qualified tradesman would do,” he

said.

The homes come with a

bathroom, shower, kitchen, living

area and sleeping quarters.

Ray White Ferrymead sales

consultant Eddie Spry thought the

student-made homes were better

than some he had come across

made by professionals.

“Compared to the commercial

ones that are made I would say that

these ones are better, they have got

a nice feel to it they flow and it has

been made with a lot of pride,” he

said.

GOOD CAUSE: Profits made from the tiny houses will go

towards funding a trip to Fiji where Ara students will build

homes for those affected by the tropical cyclones.

BRAVO: The Sumner Theatre Group following last year’s

sell-out production.

Production members sought

AFTER A sell-out season last

year, the Sumner Theatre Group

is looking for new members for

this year’s production.

Auditions will be held at 7pm,

Sunday, at the Matuku Takotako:

Sumner Centre for this year’s

production of Carnival by the

Sea.

The group is calling for

performers, stage crew and wardrobe,

musicians for the band.

“The 2018 show was our

best ever,” said president Colin

Evans.

“It’s amateur, it’s irreverent,

it’s quite often politically incorrect;

that’s the Sumner Theatre

Group’s annual cabaret show and

I tell you it’s a lot of hard work

but heaps of fun.”

“This is local theatre – the

people you see on stage are painters,

dentists, shop assistants or

council workers, accountants or

students – ordinary members of

the community.”

Each season of the production

is a fundraising opportunity for

local community groups who

book out a whole show, then onsell

the tickets.

Mr Evans said the theatre

group has always prided itself

on being open to anyone with

something to contribute.

“Community theatre enriches

the lives of all who take part in

it – whether on stage or in the

audience.”

she lives her life

which is why she

She didn’t cycle the full

sit parts out because of the

weather and her health.

cancer.

“I was proud to

raise awareness; just

to give other people

the opportunity for

treatment,” she said.

Since her

diagnosis, the active

Sumner resident has been

doing everything in her

power to finish her bucket

list, which has included

several trips to cycle the

Alpes d’Huez section of the

Tour de France, as well as

making it up Evans Pass

and Sumner Rd. But while

Miss Todd had been in

remission, the cancer has

come back. She hasn’t been

able to eat properly and has

been on an IV.

“When I was lying on

the IV drip, I thought what

the hell am I doing. But I’m

really pleased I did.”

Her next treatment will

be on April 30 and she

plans to ask her doctors

how long she has left, then

she plans to prove them

wrong.

weekly.

Time of year for reflection

Port Hills MP

Ruth Dyson

says its time

to remember

what is

important

THE MORNINGS and the

evenings are certainly telling

us that autumn is here and that

winter is on the way.

The strong seasonal changes in

our part of the country are spectacular

with the vivid colours of

autumn leaves surrounding us.

And it is also a time of the year

for reflection. The Easter period

is a significant Christian time of

reflection and coming so close

to Anzac Day, and the terrorist

events of March 15 still so fresh

in our minds, is time for us all

to remember what is important

in our lives – our family and our

communities.

I was disappointed at the negative

response from some about

the merging of some RSA Anzac

Day services, on the advice of

police.

I would have thought that we

would take the advice of our

police seriously on matters such

as security and safety. We are

fortunate that all the Anzac Day

events in our areas are going

ahead and I know that they will

all be well supported as they

always are.

Another local event that will

receive widespread support is the

recent “handing over” of 14ha of

land in the Heathcote Valley to

a charitable trust – Kahukura.

The riding school started 36 years

ago, buying the land in the valley

from farmers. The city council

later bought some of the land

to improve water flow through

Heathcote and develop the

Ferrymead sports fields and lake.

The owners wanted to protect

this special piece of green space

so have vested the land in this

trust so that the riding school can

continue in the future and the

green space will be protected.

This is a great gift for the

environment of the valley

and will mean that the special

character which this space

provides will be retained for

future generations.

And it’s a great reflection on

the generosity of those involved.

Thank you.

Ensure our estuary

birds continue to thrive

Linwood-

Central-

Heathcote

Community

Board

member Tim

Lindley writes

about the East

Asian-Australasian Flyway

network

IN OCTOBER 2018 the Avon

Heathcote Estuary (Ihutai)

joined an exclusive list of

wetlands making up the East

Asian-Australasian Flyway

network. The application was

a two-year joint effort by the

Department of Conservation

and the Avon-Heathcote

Estuary/Ihutai Trust.

The estuary is very special, as

it is the only Australasian wetland

in the Flyway that is within

a city boundary. This new status

of the estuary presents both an

opportunity and a responsibility

for our city.

The flyway’s urban setting

means that there is a new opportunity

to promote the estuary

as a reason to spend time in

Christchurch.

People are generally aware of

the annual arrival of 1500 or so

godwits non-stop from Alaska

and their departure as summer

ends, however, godwits represent

only about five per cent of the

birdlife. The estuary has well

over 100 species altogether including

other migratory species.

Birdwatchers – or ‘birders’ as

devotees are sometimes called –

can be big business. According

to a United States Fish and

Wildlife Service study, birders

contributed $36 billion to the US

economy in 2006 and birding

is an important form of ecotourism.

Our country is already

well known for adventure tourism.

Just maybe Christchurch

can also become known for its

stunning natural setting and the

different eco-tourism opportunities

right here within the city.

Having a flyway also places a

responsibility on the people of

Christchurch to ensure the birds

continue to thrive.

Here are a few things we might

think about:

•Estuary birds will see a dog as

a potential predator (ie as a wolf)

and react accordingly, even if the

dog is minding its own business.

Even if they don’t fly away they

are likely to stop feeding and be

in a high alert state for quite a

period of time. The bylaws are a

bit hard to follow but it’s probably

illegal to walk a dog on the mudflats,

and even if it’s not it may be

kinder to the birds to stay on the

paths when walking a dog.

•Drones will also be really

scary for birds, again because

they look like a predator. A

permit is required to use one

over the estuary and associated

wetlands so do take care about

using drones to capture nature

videos when birds are about.

•Shellfish gathering is becoming

increasingly common on the

tidal flats close to Beachville Rd.

While there are early indications

that the level of gathering may

be unsustainable (and more

work needs to be done on that),

there is another aspect to think

about. The south island pied

oyster catchers and many other

birds only feed at low tide. If we

want them to stay in the estuary

as a healthy population they

really need to be left in peace

during their mealtime.

The estuary is a great natural

asset of the city and a fun water

sports playground when the

tide is in. Let’s all recognise that

when the tide is out, it may not

look like much is happening, but

its dinner-time for the birds. If

we value them being there, and

the granting of flyway status

suggests we do, maybe let them

eat in peace because they don’t

have all day to feed.

Ake Ake Kia Kaha E!: Forever Brave

History of B Company Maori Battalion 1939-1945

By Wira Gardiner

A truly unique insight into the impact the Second World War

had on the iwi of the central North Island and Bay of Plenty

districts (including Te Arawa, Ngati Tuwharetoa, Tuhoe,

Whanau-a-Apanui, Ngati Maru and Ngati Paoa) focusing

on the region’s war effort not only overseas, but also at

home and in government. Through personal recollections,

eyewitness accounts, numerous anecdotes and highly

illustrated throughout, the book tells the fascinating story

of the B Company’s war, capturing the special `spirit’ of the

Maori Battalion. Features over 200 images, many not seen in print before, plus hundreds

of portraits of the men of B Company (650+ our of approx 900 who served) generously

provided by whanau. Lieutenant-Colonel Sir Harawira Wira Tiri Gardiner, KNZM, is a

former professional soldier, senior public servant and writer. He was contracted to write B

Company’s history in 2015. His tribal affiliations are Ngati Awa, Ngati Pikiao, Whakatohea

and Te Whanua-a-Apanui.

Frensham: A New Zealand Garden

By Margaret Long and Juliet Nicholas

In this lavishly illustrated book, Canterbury gardener, Margaret

Long, tells the fascinating story of Frensham, considered one

of New Zealand’s finest gardens. As though we are right there

with her, the reader is taken on a tour through the seasons,

listening as we go to Margaret’s thoughts and insights about

why this plant was placed here or that tree there, what is

behind her choices not just of plantings but also structures,

materials, colours. This very personal and yet informative

perspective on thirty years of gardening with passion makes

for a delightful book to be treasured and shared. Highly acclaimed garden photographer,

Juliet Nicholas, has “lived” with Frensham for an entire year, photographing its changes

through the months and the seasons and providing a unique insight into the growth and

development of these beautiful gardens.

Where’s my room

The Neil and Liam Finn summer 2018 tour of

Aotearoa

By Ian Jorgensen

In the summer of 2018 Neil & Liam Finn teamed up with A

Low Hum for a tour that took them to spots even the most

ardent of Kiwi nomads would be hard-placed to point out

on a map. It was a way to connect with audiences often

neglected by touring musicians combined with an epic

summer road-trip. ‘Where’s My Room’ was both a vacation for the Finns and their friends

and a celebration of that li’l kiwi battler, the community hall. Nineteen shows in all, the tour

stretched throughout January and saw Neil and Liam Finn debut live a wealth of material

from their new collaborative album, Lightsleeper, as well as digging into the various band

members’ envious and deep back catalogue of hits. Utilising his privileged position as

promoter and tour manager, notorious music photographer Ian Jorgensen captured intimate

moments of the Finns, crew and the visited communities on 35mm film. His candid

portraiture documents the tour behind-the-scenes, showing what it’s like to be out on-theroad

in rural New Zealand from the perspective of one of touring’s most roadworn advocates.

Wake up, drive, load-in, set-up, sound-check, rest, perform, pack-down, load-out, sleep,

repeat. This is what happens when twenty-odd friends, family, band and crew head out on

the road in rural New Zealand and attempt something out-of-the-ordinary.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Treasures found under fire station

Archaeology Week

runs from Saturday

to May 5. In the lead

up to it, the New

Zealand Archaeological

Association is highlighting

some of Lyttelton’s

history

•Fire station site

a treasure trove of

archaeology

When the Lyttelton Fire

Station on London St was

demolished due to earthquake

damage, archaeologists

uncovered more than 1000 items

of historical interest. In total,

1991 fragments, comprising

1312 artefacts, were found (some

items had been broken and/or

had pieces missing). The official

archaeological report prepared

by Underground Overground

Archaeology states the site is

“unique and unusual.”

“The number of artefacts,

their location when found, the

grouping of the objects, and

how the site was modified over

time, including rubbish pits,

basements, and other features –

all this makes the fire station site

fascinating,” said New Zealand

Archaeological Association

president Katharine Watson.

“In particular, this is the first

archaeological analysis of a site

where aerated water was bottled

in the Christchurch region.”

•Sparkling water not a

new craze

During the latter half of the

19th century and early decades of

the 20th century, the fire station

site was used for the manufacture

of at least five different brands of

aerated water.

From today’s standpoint,

combining coal and sparkling

water may be odd, but it did

not seem so to Charles Curtis,

who operated as both a coal

merchant and an aerated

water manufacturer at the site.

Excavation found layers of black,

ashy material in the ground and

coal dust scattered across the site.

A large number of Curtis and

have concluded that Mr Curtis

probably produced aerated water

in London St “off and on until at

least the 1920s.” Almost half of

all the aerated water bottled and

found on-site were Curtis and Co

bottles, which the archaeologists’

report describes as “curious,” in

aerated water business is all but

invisible in the historical record.”

In local newspapers of the

day, Mr Curtis advertised his

coal business but not his water,

prompting speculation that

perhaps the water business

was a sideline and not very

profitable. The Trade Mark Act

of New Zealand would also

have prevented any subsequent

business from using the

embossed bottles, so perhaps

they were dumped en masse

when Curtis and Co stopped

production.

“The Curtis and Co bottles are

a classic example of the mysteries

that crop up in heritage research,

where we have to make our best

guess and remain open to more

evidence coming to light,” said

Heritage New Zealand Pouhere

Taonga area manager Christine

Whybrew.

In all, 291 aerated water bottles

were recovered. Along with

Curtis and Co, the other London

St producers were J.B. Milsom

(who manufactured on the site

from 1885 to an unknown date),

N.C. Schumacher (1891-1915), N.

Seaforth (1915-unknown), and

T.W. Firmin (1920-1942).

In addition, there were bottles

from five producers over the

hill in Christchurch – Ballin

Brothers (1885-1980s), Phil

Kortegast (1930s-plus), Lister and

Co (1894-1906), H. Mace and Co

(1902-plus), and Were Brothers

(1911-plus).

•Illegal bottle

scandal

Along with local

water bottles, the

archaeological dig

recovered water

bottles from Australia,

England and Ireland.

How and why these

bottles came to be

on-site is unclear, but

it is possible one or

more manufacturers

were illegally re-using

someone else’s bottles

– an offence under

the Trade Mark Act.

And Lyttelton did

indeed have an illegal

bottle scandal. On

September 7, 1892,

The Press published

an open apology from

London St producer

N.C. Schumacher

to a Christchurch

manufacturer

Henry Mace for

“unknowingly” selling

Mace’s bottles to a West

Coast company. The

following year, a report

in The Star suggested

Mr Schumacher again

had issues over the provenance of

bottles, this time with J.B. Milson

of Lyttelton.

•Not exactly ‘temperance

town’

Lest all this evidence of water

drinking prompts questions

about Lyttelton’s beer drinking

credentials, the fire station site

also contained a large number

of early black beer bottles. “They

are called ‘black’ but are actually

a dark olive green in colour,”

said Heritage New Zealand

archaeologist Gwen Jackson.

The bottles were mostly

dumped on-site in the 1860s

and early 1870s, which would

correspond to the period when

the Rising Sun Hotel operated at

the north-east corner.

Other bottles from a similar

period may have contained

whisky, gin, rum and other

spirits.

BIG WIN: Estella Hungerford performed well beyond her years to win the women’s title at the

South Island championships in Dunedin.

Hunger for titles pays off

TAYLORS MISTAKE surfer

Estella Hungerford won her

first open women’s South Island

championships title in Dunedin

over the weekend.

Estella, 17, posted an 11.6

point total in the open division

final for a comfortable victory

over the all-South Island cast of

surfers at St Clair Beach.

She also competed in the

under-18 final on Sunday, where

a score of 5.9 saw her finish

third.

“In 18s it didn’t go my way

earlier in the day. I had one good

ride in that final but couldn’t

find a back-up and lost,” she

said.

“I wanted to win the 18s more

THE SELWYN Futures Golf Hub

is offering “time poor” families a

chance to taste the sport together.

​The initiative, launched by

Canterbury Golf, aims to get

more young people and their

families onto the golf course.

​The clubs involved include

Charteris Bay, Ellesmere,

Greendale, Hororata, Lincoln,

McLeans Island and Tai Tapu.

Membership is open to anyone

under-19 with memberships for

parents and guardians to play

with their child at any of the

clubs.

Members also get an apparel

pack, an official New Zealand

Golf number and handicap, as

me up for the open women’s . . .

I surfed a good heat, which I was

most happy about. The sets were

inconsistent but I waited for

them and got a couple.”

In the open men’s division,

Piha surfer Zen Wallis defended

his title and recorded his second

career win on the New Zealand

Surf Series.

In the longboard division,

Wallis was forced to settle for

second after being outclassed

by defending champion Hugh

Ritchie, who finished with an

impressive 11.6.

Meanwhile, the women’s

longboard division was taken

out by Donna Henderson with

an 11.7. Her daughter Ava

Henderson finished second in

well as subsidised coaching and

off-peak playing rights.

Dave Williams and his two

sons, Benji, 8, and Joshua, 5,

became members of the hub after

starting off at Wakatipu.

“I’m time poor, I’d rather go

out and play with my boys. To

be playing golf with my boys is

a bit of a dream and who knows

when it will end because that’s up

to them, but they’re sports mad,”

Mr Williams said.

He said another positive of the

concept is meeting and playing

golf with other families.

“At this age, we aren’t expecting

Tiger Woods . . . so as long as it’s

fun and the kids are enjoying

the under-20 girls division final.

There was also success for

Blair Cooke, who won the standup

paddleboard with a score of

9.9 in the final.

The three-day event was

hosted by South Coast

Boardriders and was dual

sanctioned by Surfing New

Zealand and the South Island

Surfing Association.

Almost 200 entries were

received for the event, with the

majority coming from South

Island surfers eager to contest

the southern-most nationally

sanctioned event.

Surfers will now turn their

attention to the Exit Surf men’s

Canterbury championships at

Gore Bay this weekend.

themselves, that’s all that

matters.”

Mr Williams’ father Graham is

a member at McLeans Island and

enjoys having three generations

on the same golf course.

“The important thing is for it to

be affordable and to play a range

of golf courses,” Mr Williams

said.

”This suits me and my boys and

the coaches tell me that both of

them hit a nice ball so that’s good

enough for me.”

”I don’t want to make time for

golf, unlike my dad, so if I can

squeeze in some time to play with

my boys on a Saturday or Sunday,

then that’s great.”

A SECOND drubbing in as

many weeks means Sumner will

be looking for their first win of

season when they travel

to Belfast on Saturday.

On Good Friday,

Sumner capitulated

in their 22-76 loss to

Linwood at Linfield

Park. The result comes

on the back of a 26-83

loss to Marist Albion a

week earlier. However,

the results have not been

a complete loss for the

side, which gained fourtry

bonus points in both games.

In the loss to Marist,

Sumner missed 46 tackles. But

coach Martin Dodgson was

impressed with his side’s initial

improvement against Linwood,

in which they missed 12 tackles

to trail 10-26 at halftime.

“It’s still wasn’t great, but was a

marked improvement on the last

week,” said Dodgson.

However, the floodgates

opened in the final stages of the

match, which saw Sumner miss

20 tackles in the final 18min.

Sumner were able to secure a

point from the match with tries

moment,” Dodgson said.

“Out at Belfast has always

back to the drawing board and

really have to sort ourselves out

Mercedes-Benz CLS a real head-turner

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

I DOUBT I’ll ever know the real

answer. Why, after many years,

has Mercedes-Benz gone back to

a straight six-cylinder engine in

one of its models?

It goes like this – for as long as

I can remember its mainstream

engines were straight-sixes,

then in the late 90s the company

reconfigured them to a V6-type

that were highly successful, now

the new CLS-Class arrives with

an engine that has gone full

circle – an inline six.

I can work out the answer to a

certain extent, and no-one knows

better than me – most of the

cars I have ever owned have had

straight-six engines – they are

renowned for their smoothness

and refinement, and I guess that’s

where Mercedes-Benz is coming

from, the CLS450 is the epitome

of sophistication and elegance.

The CLS is classed as a coupe,

to me it’s pretty much a coupetype

sedan with its four doors

yet definite sloping rear which

incorporates a deep underliftback

boot.

The evaluation car was painted

black, and it captured attention

from everyone who gazed at

it, it’s a stunning looker and

measures up in the area of

performance. Mercedes-Benz

label it a mild hybrid, there

are engineering aspects which

gather, store and deliver energy;

however, for me I still see it as a

traditional power plant, and that

fabulous six-potter is amazing

with its outputs and polish on

delivery.

Mercedes-Benz rates the

turbocharged 3-litre unit

at 270kW and 500Nm of

torque, both outputs realised

at usable points in the rev

band – 5500rpm and 1600rpm

respectively. Drive from the

engine, and small electric motor,

is channelled through a ninespeed

automatic gearbox to all

four wheels, yes the CLS in this

form utilises the 4Matic system

carried across many other

models from this stable.

Put simply, in the CLS’ case,

the 4Matic system is a device to

enhance grip levels on sealed

surfaces, and that characterises

the model, it is a slick open road

charger with handling ability

to address the power outputs.

Of course, there are several

drive modes, and some of those

are structured so that the high

country roads can be tackled

with speed and dignity.

MERCEDES-BENZ CLS450: Classed as a coupe but with the

benefit of four doors.

I took the test car on a short

Port Hills loop and thoroughly

enjoyed its ride and handling

balance.

The CLS is low (1.4m), as a

consequence there is little body

movement over the suspension,

and if you add in the quality of

the air suspension elements there

is little doubt the CLS is made for

those quick highway journeys.

Huge low profile 20in Good Year

Eagle tyres add to the equation,

grip is high and performance

barely equalled in a car of this

type.

In terms of figures, the CLS

450 will accelerate to 100km/h

in 4.8sec and will make a

highway overtake in 3.8sec, it

simply scorches through the

acceleration process, and there’s

no point where the engine stops

giving, it is forceful, yet you

would never know it is working

hard, it simply delivers without

sound.

As honest as it is with its

response, the engineers have also

developed the driveline with fuel

economy in mind. Mercedes-

Benz claims an 8.7-litre per

100km (32mpg) combined cycle

average. That sits well with the

9.4l/100km (30mpg) figure

showing constantly on the dash

display graphics. At 100km/h it

is sipping fuel at just 5l/100km

(56mpg) with the engine turning

over amazingly low at 1250rpm.

All of these computations add

up to a beautifully engineered

vehicle, it also stands out for its

dignity and all of those values

you look to Mercedes-Benz for.

The CLS 450 has a magnitude

of safety kit, and that’s evident

every time you drive it. There are

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

CLS450, $157,890

• Dimensions – Length,

4988mm; width,

2069mm; height,

1435mm

• Configuration – Sixcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2999cc, 270kW, 500Nm,

nine-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.8sec

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

almost autonomous-like devices

which keep you out of trouble.

There’s also a plethora of

features for comfort and

convenience, the CLS just feels

so right to be in. While it is a

big car at almost 5m, you don’t

actually feel its size when you are

driving it.

As a driver it gives you

all of the feel and satisfaction

you would expect from a car

which lists in standard form at

$157,890.

Although it may

seem like a big outlay, I’d happily

pay that amount for such a true

luxury car, one which delivers

so much in terms of overall

performance.

Every time now I get in the

Kiddie-family Toyota I’m looking

for the six-cylinder smoothness

that also makes the CLS so

desirable. It’s not quite there in

the Toyota, but it is certainly an

indication of what the inline-six

can deliver.

The living spaces are equally as versatile,

the separate lounge offers utterly stunning

views with large windows that blend in

with the peaceful surrounds, while the

expansive light filled open plan kitchen/

dining/living area houses a well-appointed

kitchen a real treat for the chef of the family.

A log burner, a pallet burner, a heat pump,

double glazing make the winter months

warm and inviting.

Pull back the sliding doors leading to

the outside and chill on the deck, a perfect

place for entertaining, while the children

laugh and play on the grassed areas.

A separate laundry, and double garage

complete the appeal.

The section incorporates easy drive on

access

Located close to all walking tracks, the

ocean and all shopping amenities are a

short drive. In zone for Mt Pleasant school.

Private school buses interconnect at the

bottom of the hill.
