Passer-by saves cat from fire

House

goes up

in flames

moments later

• By Jess Gibson

A CHARTERIS BAY man has spoken

of how he ran into a neighbour’s

property fearing the occupants were

inside.

The man, who did not wish to be

named, sprinted up the driveway to the

house on Marine Dr after seeing smoke

pouring from the hillside on Monday.

The blaze started in the bushes below

the property, but it was not long before

the deck caught fire and flames were

ripping through the inside of the house.

“I tell you it’s an absolute heads-up for

anybody about fires. You see the ads about

having to get out in seconds, and it’s absolutely

true,” he told Bay Harbour News

yesterday.

The man was relieved to find no one

was home, however, he did manage to

find and save the occupants’ cat – Plague.

After searching frantically for a way to

put out the fire but having no luck, the

man phoned 111.

Four fire crews attended from

Governors Bay, Diamond Harbour

and central stations at about 5.30pm

and extinguished the fire in about an

hour.

A LUCKY break for Plague the cat on page

1 today.

Plague was in a Charteris Bay house

which caught fire late on Monday afternoon.

The occupants were not home.

Another Charteris Bay resident was

heading into the city and saw smoke. Like any good citizen he

went in to investigate. No-one was inside but a cat was.

He duly picked it up and took it from the property which was

now starting to burn quickly and dialled 111.

And the rescuer, who did not want to be named, has a

message about those fire prevention ads on TV: “I tell you it’s an

absolute heads-up for anybody about fires. You see the ads about

having to get out in seconds, and it’s absolutely true.”

Disappointment at lack of action

on estuary shellfish limits

• By Jess Gibson

A GROUP concerned with

Avon Heathcote Estuary’s daily

shellfish limit are disappointed

it can not be lowered for at least

a year.

Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai

Trust chairman Kit Doudney

wrote to Ministry for Primary

Industries requesting the daily

recreational limit be lowered

from 150 to 25 per person.

The trust agreed last Wednesday

a reduction would become its

short term goal for protecting the

estuary while it worked out a way

to enforce a harvesting ban.

However, MPI director of

fisheries management Stuart

Anderson said it would take a

minimum of one year to lower

the recreational daily limits in

the estuary.

“The process would include

formal consultation and the

government’s approval of any

changes,” he said.

Mr Anderson said signs will

be erected in the estuary enforcing

the limit of 150 in the next

couple of months as there is currently

nothing stating the rules.

The impact of shellfish gathering

in the estuary on shellfish

numbers, birdlife, and human

LET DOWN:

Avon-Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai

Trust chairman

Kit Doudney said

residents would

a plan to improve

the health of the

Avon Heathcote

Estuary will take

more than a year.

health has been of growing

concern for its surrounding communities.

Mr Doudney said the community

was likely to be “very

disappointed” that reducing

the collection limit would

now have to become one of

the trust’s long term goals.

The trust also has a long

term goal of working with

Ngai Tuahuriri to develop a

mataitai, which would allow

tangata whenua to enforce

a ban.

However, because a

mataitai may take months or

years to instigate, the trust

saw a reduction as a way to

control excessive gathering

in the interim.

He said the trust will

discuss possible short term

goals at its meeting next

month.

Mr Doudney said signs

being put in at the estuary

was a “positive” but he was

sceptical of how long they

would last, as the last set

disappeared.

Fisheries officers regularly

patrol the estuary to ensure

harvesting is lawful. Penalties are

in place for non-compliance.

In Brief

LIQUOR STORE REOPENS

The Redcliffs Fine Wine and

Liquor Store at 1/87 Main Rd

is set to open today. It has been

empty for four months following

a controversial decision by the

alcohol regulatory and licensing

committee to grant Rizak

Enterprises Ltd sole director

Juraj Singh an off-licence.

PARKING CONGESTION

Vehicles parking along Park

Tce in Corsair Bay have been

causing traffic congestion on

busy days. The Banks Peninsula

Community Board has asked

city council staff to provide

information on what could be

done to address the issue and

whether there are any steps that

can be taken prior to the busy

Christmas period to alleviate

congestion.

NIGHT PATROL ENDS

Mudge and colleague Shane

Fuller have ended more than two

70-year-old firefighter gets a rush when

Sumner volunteer

firefighter Paul Groufsky

has just turned 70 and is

still fighting fires. He talks

to reporter Jess Gibson

IT WAS 2001 when Paul

Groufsky moved to Sumner in

search of a fresh start.

After his late wife, Paula,

died suddenly from a brain

haemorrhage in 1993, he waited

until his four children were old

enough before moving out of

Harewood.

Eight years on Mr Groufsky

shifted into his new home and

wanted to get out and meet

people in the community – so he

wandered down to the Sumner

Fire Station.

Now, the 70-year-old is still

fighting fires, driving trucks and

operating the water pumps for

the volunteer brigade, which he

said has become like a family to

him.

Mr Groufsky is the oldest

firefighter in the brigade, and his

fellow members recently threw

a special supper to celebrate his

birthday on November 13.

And after 19 years, he said he

still gets an adrenalin rush every

time the sirens go off.

Since retiring from his job at

the freezing works four years

ACTIVE: At 70, Paul Groufsky is still fighting fires with the Sumner volunteer brigade.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

ago, he said he is pretty much

always available to shoot down

the road to the station.

“When you hear it go, your

whole body gets into action,” he

said.

“We fight all types of fires,

rescue animals, save kids who

have got their legs stuck in

bicycle spokes or heads through

gates. We also attend car

accidents, emergency calls like

‘When you hear it go,

your whole body gets into

action’

– Paul Groufsky

heart attacks and do general first

aid,” he said.

He said the hardest, yet most

memorable callout was to the

Port Hills fires in 2017.

“The wind changes all the time

and you’ve got to be so aware

because the fire can come up

behind you.”

However, the most rewarding

callouts for Mr Groufsky are

the ones where the brigade

gives victims a second chance at

survival.

“I love giving back to the

community and giving people

hope.”

Last year, Mr Groufsky

recieved a Community Services

Award from the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board.

Mr Groufsky said the brigade

has helped him through some

of his harder times since he

joined.

He said they were extremely

supportive when his oldest

daughter, Kate, died suddenly in

2010 and when he lost his home

soon after in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

siren sounds

On the other hand, the brigade

has also witnessed some of the

highlights in Mr Groufsky’s life,

like when he met his partner

Ferne in 2009, who he later

married in 2013.

Mr Groufsky said he is lucky

to have the support of his wife

and other family members for

his volunteer work.

Bike rides, walking, swimming

and hiking up the Port Hills

with Mrs Groufsky is part of

how he stays fit for the brigade.

It helped him to pass a simulation

test recently at Woolston

Station, which means he can

continue to attend most callouts.

“If I didn’t feel fit enough I

wouldn’t be going, but I can keep

up with most of the young ones.”

He said he hopes to hang

around for at least another six

years, so he can get a gold star

to represent 25 years on the

brigade.

“If I’m fit enough and able

to keep up and make sure that

I’m safe, and that my fellow

firefighters are safe while I work

with them, I’ll go for as long as

I can.”

Plague now safe at rescuer’s home

• From page 1

After leaving the property, the

man said he had a sore throat and

eyes but was otherwise fine.

Plague is now safe at his home

while the occupants, believed to

be a young couple renting the

one-bedroom property, stay with

family.

“I’m just sorry for them that I

couldn’t save the house,” he said.

Fire investigator Jason Hobbs

was at the scene yesterday trying

to determine the cause of the fire.

GUTTED: The fire only took

minutes to spread through

the house.

Ruth Dyson. She beat out the other

nominees Joe Davies, Tyrone Fields

and Reuben Davidson.

It comes after electoral boundary

changes were proposed for

Canterbury which could see Selwyn

redrawn and a name change for the

Port Hills electorate.

The changes would see Selwyn’s

map redrawn to no longer include

Banks Peninsula, which could

mean the current Port Hills

electorate would be re-named Banks

Peninsula.

Diamond Harbour

gets petrol station

• By Jess Gibson

FILLING UP is now

a whole lot easier for

the Diamond Harbour

community.

For the first time in 13

years, residents can whip

downtown to fill up instead

of heading at least 25km to

the nearest service station

in Cashmere or Tai Tapu.

NPD has recently opened

a 24/7 self-service station

on Marine Drive, which

offers regular 91, premium

95 and diesel.

Diamond Harbour Volunteer

Fire Brigade chief

officer Bob Palmer said

crew members are pleased

with the new facility.

After attending an hour

and a half callout to a serious

crash on Pigeon Bay Rd

on November 15, he said

a quick refuel enabled the

brigade to be ready to take

its next call.

For several years, the

brigade had been using a

small tank of diesel at the

fire station to fill up its

vehicles and before that,

fuel was bought over from

the city.

Now, Mr Palmer said

NPD will be the new regular.

On the Spot Diamond

Harbour is right next door

to the new station, and

owner James Grant said the

communities reaction has

been “very positive.”

FILL UP: Diamond Harbour Volunteer Fire Brigade

senior firefighter Jeremy Palmer fills a truck after

attending a serious crash on Pigeon Bay Rd, Port

Levy. ​

He said it will be a big

change for residents as

most had learned to keep

spare petrol and diesel in

their garage.

“It also means there’s less

tourists getting stranded

here on the weekends, as

well as less answering questions

about where the closest

place to get fuel is and

seeing people’s face when

you tell them.”

He said the new NPD

would also be positive for

people visiting the area as

they could stick around

longer.

By-election preparations

get under way

NOMINATIONS FOR the

vacant Banks Peninsula

Community Board seat

opened this week.

The city council is seeking

candidates for a position

representing the Mt

Herbert subdivision from

now until December 23.

A by-election to fill the

seat will be held on February

18.

The extraordinary vacancy

has arisen because only

one of the two positions

representing Mt Herbert

was filled at October’s local

body elections.

Newcomer Howard

Needham was elected

unopposed.

While candidates do not

need to live in the Mt Herbert

subdivision, they will

need to be nominated for

the position by two people

who do.

They must be New Zealand

citizens and enrolled

in the electoral roll.

Said city council electoral

officer Jo Daly: “This byelection

is a great opportunity

for someone who wants

to represent the community

to have a seat at the community

board table.

“Nominations close at

noon on December 23.

If you leave it to the last

minute, we may not have

enough time to address

any issues with your

nomination.”

Private

artwork

collection

to be

auctioned

A PRIVATE collection of

artwork will be auctioned in

Diamond Harbour on Sunday.

Now on display at Stoddart

Cottage, the collection includes

several 19th-century oil paintings

and watercolours.

All 23 artworks have been

donated to the Stoddart Cottage

Trust by a Church Bay family,

who wish to remain anonymous.

It is understood all seven of

the 19th century watercolours

were brought from Scotland by

the donor’s forebears who settled

in Southland about 1879.

The auction is a special fundraising

event to raise money for

the trust’s collection and heritage

activities.

Proceeds will be used for

maintaining and adding to its

own collection of artefacts associated

with the cottage and the

Stoddart family who lived in the

cottage in the 1860s and 1870s.

The trust hopes to be able

to acquire one or two original

Margaret Stoddart paintings for

public display at the cottage.

Said trust chairwoman Paula

Smith: “We were blown away

when the donor told us what she

planned to do.”

The cottage at 2a Waipapa

Ave will be open every day during

the week leading up to a live

auction, including weeknights

on Tuesday, Thursday and

Friday.

Visitors can place written bids

on works they like, culminating

the live auction which will take

place on Sunday at 5pm.

Entrepreneurs strap in for success

• By Matt Slaughter

TWO BUDDING entrepreneurs

have been given a chance to

present their product on the

national stage.

Wayo Whyte, of Lyttelton, and

Riley Flanagan, of Governors

Bay, are two of four Cashmere

High School students who

invented “Pivot,” the world’s first

instant ice strapping tape.

The group of year 13 students

also includes Josh Dalley and

Luisa Birkenhake.

The team has recently been

recognised by winning one of

two regional spots to compete

for Young Enterprise Scheme’s

Company of the Year award in

Wellington on December 4.

Pivot is a strapping tape that

goes ice-cold with the addition

of water.

Pivot chief executive Josh said

winning this award would mean

Pivot would gain great exposure.

The product also won the

regional excellence award for innovation

and the regional award

for enterprising technology.

Josh said winning these awards

made all of the hard work that

went into designing the product

pay off.

Local girls help bag ethics gold medals

• By Claire Booker

MONCKS BAY residents Lucy

Sawyer and Hannah Wylie

have bagged gold medals from

Christchurch’s Middle School

Ethics Olympiad competition.

They were part of a group of

St Margaret’s College Year 9

students to win the competition,

during its first year being held in

New Zealand, with previous ones

being in Australia.

The group of five students,

which also included Claudia

Hundlby, Tessa Sitjies and Emily

Harris, beat Hillmorton High

School in a close finish.

They answered questions

on subjects including lying,

donations, tracking apps, relationships,

dog ownership, the

environment and charities.

ACHIEVEMENT: Teacher Matt Benassi with Luisa Birkenhake,

Riley Flanagan, Wayo Whyte and Josh Dalley, one of two

Canterbury teams to be selected to compete for Young

Enterprise Scheme’s Company of the Year award in Wellington.

“It was absolutely fantastic, a

real honour, to be honest. I suppose

it’s when you work really

hard at something for a whole

year and it’s in a big group of

people, every once in a while a

fire sort of gets lit and we feed off

each other and we managed to

do something really amazing.”

The girls took part in a senior

competition earlier in the year, but

group member Hannah Wylie said

the girls wanted to try competing

against students of their own age.

Said Hannah: “Preparing for

the competition was slightly

tricky because we didn’t know

which one of three questions they

would ask for each case.”

The students practised every

Monday and Tuesday in their

lunch hour for more than a

month prior to the competition

and went over questions in their

term 3 school holidays.

Hannah said the students look

forward to competing in the

senior competition next year.

“It has been such a great experience

competing and preparing for

these events.”

He said the team hopes to keep

growing Pivot’s brand and some of

its members are planning to study

business at university, while others

will study engineering.

“We’re looking to move on and

expand and get a real manufacturer

on board hopefully and

we’ve got some big sales channels

SUPPORTED: Pivot tape being

used by students.

and opportunities with some

celebrities actually for endorsement,

said Josh.

“We’re looking to go into the

medical industry, not just the

sporting industry.”

In 2018 there were over

250,000 sports-related ACC injury

claims. The top five injuries

were different types of sprains

which could have been treated

with the Pivot tape, said Josh.

“We are working hard to

revolutionise first-aid for the

world. No longer is your firstaid

kit complete without the

addition of our product,” he said.

Dyers Pass on list of places

to get back its Maori name

• HAVE YOUR SAY: What do

you think about the proposed

name alterations across

Banks Peninsula? Email your

views to - jess.gibson@starmedia.kiwi

• By Jess Gibson

TRADITIONALLY known as

Pukeatua, Dyers Pass was once

a route used by Lyttelton’s Ngai

Tahu settlements to travel into

what is now known as central

Christchurch.

In 1942, it was named after

John Dyer, a well-known farmer

who owned several properties

at Governors Bay and Lyttleton

Harbour.

Now, the existing place name

may be altered to reflect its

Maori history, as the New Zealand

Geographic Board is seeking

feedback on the assignment

or alteration for the names of

13 locations, requested by local

hapu Rāpaki Rūnanga.

If approved, Dyers Pass would

become a dual name with Pukeatua,

used together as one name.

Eleven of the proposals are

for the restoration of traditional

Ngāi Tahu names alongside the

current English names.

Cass Peak would be made into

a dual name with Ōrongomai,

which means “the place where

voices are heard.” Ōrongomai

signifies a historic battle between

CONSULTATION: Dyers Pass could soon also be known as Pukeatua, if a proposal to change

13 place names in Banks Peninsula is successful. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Ngāi Tahu chief Te Rakiwhakaputa

and tribal group Ngāti

Māmoe, which could be heard

by people nearby.

Adderley Head, a scenic reserve

near Godley Head, would be run

alongside the Maori name Te

Piaka, which refers to the edible

root or bulb of the bulrush plan.

Historic Maori names would

also be added to existing names

for King Billy Island, Mansons

Peninsula, Coopers Knob, Evans

Pass, Sugar Loaf, The Tors, Castle

Rock and Witch Hill.

Two proposals are not for dual

names as there were no English

names for those features - these

include changing Rapaki to Te

Rāpaki-o-Te-Rakiwhakaputa

and Rapaki Rock to Te Ahi-a-

Tamatea.

An NZGB spokesperson said

restoring traditional Ngāi Tahu

names alongside well-known

and established English names

would recognise the significance

of both and provide a window

into the heritage of both cultures.

Deputy Mayor and councillor

Andrew Turner said he was in

support of the proposals.

“This is adding value whilst

taking nothing away. It gives effect

to and recognises the values of the

local Rūnanga, and is an opportunity

for greater understanding,

education and recognition.”

Consultation on the proposals

opened last Wednesday and will

close on December 2 and NZGB

will consider submissions at its

first meeting in 2020.

Submissions can be made

online at www.linz.govt.nz/

Shops bursting with

festive gift ideas

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making up the

Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking fillers as

well as the Christmas treats for the table is so easy at

our city’s malls and shopping centres, where the shops

are bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive body pampering

gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced

to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift

shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite

and again there is a wide selection to choose from,

ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie,

jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor

items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on

the list.

The men are equally well catered for, from the

sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy

brothers and the DIY enthusiast and keen gardener

husbands and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and gadgets to put a

smile on their face on Christmas morning.

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy

than seeing the excitement of the children opening

their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa

or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly

toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy

canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling

the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

The tweens and teens usually have their own ideas

about what they want for Christmas, so the gift cards

offered by a wide range of retailers are the perfect way

to please.

Akaroa reopens doors to colonial cabinet

A 122-YEAR-OLD cabinet

carved by a Banks Peninsula

farmer will be on display at

Akaroa Museum.

Known as the Stanford

Family Pataka Cabinet, it was

made by John Henry Menzies

in 1897 for his daughter, Charlotte.

It will feature in J H Menzies:

Design and Decoration at

Akaroa Museum from December

7 until March 2020.

The cabinet is laden with

carving and incorporates a

pātaka or Maori storehouse

form, unique in New Zealand

furniture.

It has been repatriated from

Australia after being bought by

the Christchurch Art Museum

and Akaroa Museum.

Akaroa Museum director

Lynda Wallace said that

to “have repatriated such a

significant piece of furniture

is a coup for the gallery, the

museum and, by extension, for

the country.”

Friends of Akaroa Museum

has also helped with the acquisition.

Said FOAM president David

Miller: “We have returned an

item of immense importance

to the place where it was made

and we are thrilled that it has

come home.”

J H Menzies was both a

Banks Peninsula farmer and

a designer and decorator of

buildings and furniture.

Self-taught, he is known for

his deep interest in Māori art

and architecture, appropriating

Pontoon bid at wharves

• By Jess Gibson

A BID has been made to have

floating pontoons built at the

Takamatua and Robinsons Bay

wharves.

The Robinsons Bay Ratepayers’

and Residents’ Association

and the Takamatua Ratepayers’

Association plan to make a

submission to the city council’s

Long Term Plan next year.

The Takamatua wharf closed

in 2011 following earthquake

damage and was reopened for

late last year, while the Robinsons

Bay wharf closed in 2010

and opened in August.

The pontoons would allow

safe access on and off the

wharves for swimmers and

boaters.

The two associations have

informed the Banks Peninsula

Community Board of their

plans with a letter, which has

now been forward to city

council staff to work out what

steps are required to make a

submission.

This included requesting an

estimate of capital and ongoing

maintenance costs.

into his decoration.

Colonial furniture specialist

William Cottrell has restored

the cabinet.

Said Dr Cottrell: “The upper

pātaka cabinet had its backboards

partially stoved in, apparently

as a result of toppling

backwards during the Cheviot

earthquake in 1951.”

“The crushed backboards

were removed and knitted

back together with new kauri

set in where fragments had

been lost and parts of the

broken glass screen framing

were recreated,” he said.

UNIQUE: The cabinet made

by John Henry Menzies

in 1897 will be on display

at Akaroa Museum from

December 7. ​

Well done on bringing

this to a discussion point,

and Aaron Lock for making

a stand on a very contentious

issue. As a longtime

shortboard surfer and father

who has stopped his son

from surfing Sumner for

this very reason, it’s dangerous

and so are stand up

paddleboards.

Leashes yes. For older

learner surfers and stand-up

paddleboarders, please utilise

The Fowl Twins by Eoin Colfer

Criminal genius runs in the family…

Myles and Beckett Fowl are twins but the two boys are wildly different.

Beckett is blonde, messy and sulks whenever he has to wear

clothes. Myles is impeccably neat, has an IQ of 170, and 3D prints

a fresh suit every day – just like his older brother, Artemis Fowl.

A week after their eleventh birthday the twins are left in the care

of house security system, NANNI, for a single night. In that time,

they befriend a troll on the run from a nefarious nobleman and an

interrogating nun both of whom need the magical creature for their

own gain . . .

Prepare for an epic adventure in which The Fowl Twins and their new troll

friend escape, get shot at, kidnapped, buried, arrested, threatened, killed

(temporarily) . . . and discover that the strongest bond in the world is not the

one forged by covalent electrons in adjacent atoms, but the one that exists

between a pair of twins.

The first book in the blockbusting new series from global bestseller Eoin Colfer.

The End of the Ocean

by Maja Lunde

From the author of the number one international bestseller The History of

Bees, a captivating new novel about the threat of a worldwide water shortage

as seen through the eyes of a father and daughter.

In 2019, seventy-year-old Signe sets out on a hazardous voyage to cross an

entire ocean in only a sailboat. She is haunted by the loss of the love of her

life, and is driven by a singular and all-consuming mission to make it back

to him. In 2041, David flees with his young daughter, Lou, from a war-torn

Southern Europe plagued by drought. They have been separated from their

rest of their family and are on a desperate search to reunite with them once

again, when they find Signe’s abandoned sailboat in a parched French

garden, miles away from the nearest shore. As David and Lou discover

personal effects from Signe’s travels, their journey of survival and hope

weaves together with Signe’s, forming a heartbreaking, inspiring story about

the power of nature and the human spirit in this second novel from the author

of the “spectacular and deeply moving” The History of Bees.

She’s

The very

rueing that they were away

She definitely still uses

her legs to power herself

away from me (mostly with

me trailing behind going

we’ve hit this year.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

From computer

novice to digital

whizz

A simple desire to become more

confident using computers has opened up

a world of possibilities for Thomas King, a

co-director of a logistics business.

“The world is rapidly changing and to

keep pace with it, having some confidence

and competence in computing is crucial,”

he says. “I realised that I’d have to embrace

this scary but exciting new tech-driven

world sooner or later, and now here I am

today, loving what I once feared.”

Thomas got the skills he was looking

for at Ara Connect, a network of

community hubs operated by Ara Institute

of Canterbury which

offer free, non-assessed

computing courses for

anyone wanting to gain

skills and confidence

using digital technology.

Thomas says the tutors

at Ara Connect made

learning an enjoyable

experience and were

very supportive. “I felt

so inspired during my

journey. The tutors were

very attentive and always

eager to assist. They want

you to succeed and they

encourage you to push

PAGE 17

your boundaries without ever throwing

you in the deep end.”

His advice for anyone else considering

the computing courses at Ara Connect

is to just go for it. “Knowing how to use

computers in a way that delivers results can

make life so much easier, especially in the

world of business. I certainly wish I’d taken

courses like these two decades ago. My

advice is to pluck up the courage and just

go for it.”

Information about Ara Connect

courses is available at ara.ac.nz or by

Selwyn Sounds

Zed reforms for the love of it

• By Matt Slaughter

WHEN ZED formed in the late

1990s, they were fresh-faced

teenagers from Cashmere High

School.

The band’s transition from

the classroom to reaching

international audiences and

being managed by New Zealand

music legend Ray Columbus

happened quickly. Their first album

Silencer debuted at number

one on the New Zealand album

charts in 2000 and included hit

singles Renegade Fighter and

Glorafilia.

Zed lead singer and guitarist

Nathan King said highlights

of their young career included

opening for Robbie Williams

and Coldplay and touring

Europe.

Now, fans who want to take

a trip down memory lane and

hear a set filled with Kiwi

classics can do so when Zed

reunites after 15 years to play

Selwyn Sounds on March 7.

Lead singer Nathan King said

the band is looking forward to

playing in front of fans whose

lives may have been impacted by

their music.

“We love bringing a show

which involves the crowd. We

will be playing all the hits but

also there [will be] some surprises

there and there are some

nods to our heroes in terms of a

cover or two that we do which

I think people will love. We’re

just very conscious as a band,

we were a big part of a lot of

people’s lives growing up.”

The Selwyn Sounds crowd

will be treated to Zed’s original

line up of King, fellow Cashmere

High old boys Ben Campbell

and Adrian Palmer and

the band’s only non-Cashmere

connection Andy Lynch.

King said the band had developed

musically in the years

the members had been apart

and they are looking forward to

showing this off.

“Musically, I think we’ve all

developed and matured over the

years. We got together for our

comeback shows that we had in

September and as the frontman

with essentially three guys playing

with me, I was blown away

by the calibre of musicianship

ROCKERS:

Zed members

Ben Campbell,

Adrian Palmer,

Nathan King

and Andy Lynch

will perform at

Selwyn Sounds

on March 7.

•Selwyn

Sounds tickets

co.nz/

that was still there and still evident

after all these years.”

King said the pressure on Zed

in its early days to make a living

is gone. Himself and Lynch

now run Auckland-based music

studio Hum Studios, Campbell

owns Akaroa restaurant Ma

Maison and Palmer is theowner

of Addington Coffee

Co-op.

Zed will play Selwyn Sounds

purely for the love of it, said

King.

Pop-rock

melodies

from Parsons

• By Matt Slaughter

JED PARSONS will be taking

his pop-rock melodies to Selwyn

Sounds.

The former Lincoln High School

student will be performing songs

from his album Midnight Feast,

which was nominated for an award

at the Taite Music Prize ceremony

earlier this year.

Parsons said he and his band

members Moses Robbins and

Matt Andrews will play a diverse,

energetic set for the Selwyn Sounds

crowd.

“You’ll expect anything from sort

of very mellow, acoustic folk songs,

right through to pretty ridiculous

and silly indie rock songs,’’ he said.

“I think we’ll definitely look

to kick the day off with a bang

because we’re one of the first acts to

play on the day. We’ll be hopefully

playing exactly what every single

person in the crowd wants to hear.”

Parsons said he is looking

forward to performing in the area

where he grew up in front of familiar

faces.

“Maybe they [the crowd] might

find it quite entertaining to see

how I’ve developed since being an

annoying little child hogging the

limelight in school productions.”

Mercedes-Benz wagon packs a punch

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

IT WAS ONLY a rumour but I’m a

little worried. I was in conversation

with a colleague about cars and he

told me that Mercedes-Benz was

engineering the sound out of all of

their models.

Well, most Mercedes-Benz cars

are well hushed, and you would

expect that, the engineering is

such that when you are paying for

a luxury car you wouldn’t want

the travelling experience to be

ruined by loud noise.

However, there are some Mercedes-Benz

cars which are loud,

and the company would make no

apology for that, sound is a large

part of their appeal.

The cars I’m talking about are

the performance models, those

with AMG badging and those

with high performance engines,

there are too many to list individually,

but almost all of those have

the 63 S engine, the 4-litre V8 that

characterises the AMG range is

especially loud and I would hate it

if that beautiful exhaust note was

ever stifled.

The latest car to come my way

with that twin-turbocharged V8

was the C 63 S estate, or station

wagon as we have come to know

them down under.

It’s fair to say I was in heaven

with this car, I love wagons and,

of course, that howling V8 up

front is something absolutely

special.

Mercedes-Benz rates the

quad-camshaft unit with a

massive 375kW and a staggering

700Nm of torque, the latter

available all of the way from

2000 to 4500rpm. Hence the C

63 S is a vibrant, lusty vehicle, it

will lunge to 100kmh in 4.1sec

and will complete an 80km/h to

120km/h overtaking manoeuvre

in 3.8sec. They are quick figures

and ones which will satisfy the

sports car buyer immensely. Such

is the strength of the engine, the

traction control network is challenged,

under hard acceleration

you can hear the rear tyres chirping

as they eke grip.

Yes, the C 63 S estate drives

through a nine-speed transmission

to the rear wheels only, to my

way of thinking that’s also a benefit,

while I like the 4Matic system

that is fitted to other Mercedes-

Benz product, the weight saving

and pure driving feel you get

through rear-wheel-drive only is

something rather special.

Of course, the driveline is engineered

for safety and there is little

chance of rear-end breakaway, but

MERCEDES-BENZ AMG C 63 S: Performance car with handy

wagon section.

if you are tackling the back roads

at speed, you can ask the

C 63 S to be a little playful.

Time was a little against me

during testing so I didn’t get all

of the way to the Lake Coleridge

Village, that road is my favourite

for cars of this ilk, but I did get to

Terrace Downs and I was thrilled

with the zest and vibrancy of the

engine, and chassis package.

In terms of sound, there is a

button which amplifies exhaust

tone and I had that activated all of

the time, there’s a bark out of the

pipes when the gears change up

and it is absolutely tantalising.

There are also a multitude of

drive modes and they can be

individually tailored, or you can

use either of the many pre-programmed

settings.

You won’t get away with driving

the V8 C-Class quickly without

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

AMG C 63 S estate,

$172,700

• Dimensions – Length,

4702mm; width, 1810mm;

height, 1457mm

• Configuration – V8,

rear-wheel-drive, 3982cc,

375kW, 700Nm, ninespeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.1sec

• Fuel usage – 10.7l/100km

noticing a corresponding effect

on fuel use, after my long highway

burst, the readout was showing

a 12.9- litre per 100km (22mpg)

fuel burn, that’s somewhat higher

than Mercedes-Benz’s combined

cycle claim of 10.7l/100km

(27mpg), but if that target is

achievable then it deserves

credit. For the record, on an easy

100km/h cruise the dash panel

readout sits at 7l/100km (40mpg),

the engine largely unstressed at

1400rpm.

Personally, I was too preoccupied

having fun in the estate

to concentrate too much on

economy, it’s an absolute blast to

drive, everything it does it does so

competently.

I guess at $172,700 you would

want that to be the case, but you

do get a lot of car for the money

and it is fully loaded with everything

for comfort, convenience

and safety.

The C-Class isn’t big in statute

but it is a capable five-seater, and

in estate form it adds just that little

bit of practicality, the load space

will take in up to 490-litres and

that easily translates into a multitude

of cargo carrying options.

The face of motoring is changing

rapidly, there’s a global ground

swell of rhetoric calling for greater

emphasis on alternative fuels as

opposed to the oil we pump out of

the ground - electric and hydrogen-based

alternatives are fast

becoming the buzz words.

That being the case, if there are

buyers out there like me, who like

the pumping sound that is only

available from V8 power, then

now is the time to buy. I’ll never

be able to afford one, but I am

certainly delighted for those who

can find their way into one of

the greatest driving experiences

available in the market today.
