ANDREW TURNER, a serious

man, or Phil Mauger, the

maverick who dug a trench to

try and stop flooding in the

eastern suburbs.

These are the potential

candidates Lyttelton resident,

poet and radio show host Gary

McCormick would consider

voting for as mayor if there was

an election this weekend.

Bay Harbour News went

to Lyttelton on Monday to

gauge people’s preferences for

who they would like to see as

the next mayor.

McCormick said: “Mostly, I

value passion, and digging up

the drains [trench] sounds very

passionate, so maybe

that guy.”

councillor Phil Mauger went

Pages Rd in April to solve a

unresolved for 10 years.

He was fined $300 by the city

“I will be using the ‘get on

Boy racer

sting nabs

routine

drivers

• By Samantha Mythen

THREE HUNDRED and eighty

tickets were issued to speeding

motorists over the weekend.

Speeding tickets issued included

79 in Cass Bay, 91 on Bridle Path

Rd, 81 in the tunnel (all 50km/h

areas) and 129 on Tunnel Rd

(100km/h area).

Police launched an operation

targeting boy racers but caught

many routine motorists, said

Sergeant Gerard Peoples.

A number of local motorists

were among those ticketed.

Peoples said it was “a bit disappointing.”

“The law of physics doesn’t discern

between a ‘boy racer’ and a

mum and dad driver. If you speed,

you’re more likely to crash and the

impact will be greater on you and/

or others,” he said.

It was Lyttelton Police’s latest

road policing operation to stop

speeders and boy racers.

Peoples said they worked alongside

staff from the anti-social road

users section.

“Overall, it was a pretty quiet

weekend,” he said.

“Happy to be proved wrong,

but there seems to be less boy

racer activity around than a few

months ago.”

THAT WAS a heck of a lot of

motorists caught speeding at

the weekend.

On page 1 today we reveal

the numbers from a police

speed and boy racer operation.

A total of 380 tickets were

issued in Cass Bay, Bridle Path

Rd, in the Lyttelton tunnel and

on Tunnel Rd.

Police say it was quiet on the

boy racer front, which means

there were a lot of what could

be termed routine drivers

caught. Police have described

them as mums and dads.

Speeding around the bays

with the tight corners and

through the Lyttelton tunnel is

simply dumb and dangerous.

On another note, a top show

THE ICONIC British Hotel

is applying for a city council

heritage grant to assist with the

cost of building a new roof and

parapet.

The British was badly damaged

during the earthquakes and is

slowly being restored.

Rebecca Lovell-Smith and her

partner Christian Carruthers

bought the building post-quakes.

Lovell-Smith said Carruthers

had always loved the building.

“We didn’t want it to be demolished

after the earthquakes,”

GLORY DAYS:

Restoration is under

way for the iconic

British Hotel, pictured

before it was rebuilt

in the 1940s (left) and

today.

she said.

“We knew how important it

was to Lyttelton; it holds a fond

place in many people’s hearts.”

Work has already begun on the

top floor, which was the former

manager’s flat and hotel rooms.

It is planned to keep this space as

accommodation.

One room will be set up as a

small museum with pieces from

the hotel’s past on display.

With the grant’s help, Lovell-

Smith and Carruthers are hoping

to rebuild the parapet later

this year.

The parapet reflects the building’s

late deco-inspired architecture

in the moderne style, with

rounded corners and porthole

windows.

“The British is an important

part not only of Lyttelton’s

history but also its streetscape

and architecture,” said Lovell-

Smith.

“We want to keep the building

in its original state, there are no

flash renovation plans.”

The hotel is currently home to

four local businesses – Arcana

Tattoo parlour, the Commoners

Bar, the Lost Property junk shop,

and Big Sam’s Tools.

Lovell-Smith said every

Saturday when she opens Lost

Property, people always come in

and tell her diverse stories about

the time they have spent in the

hotel.

Rebuilt in the 1940s, the

British has a rich history with a

colourful reputation.

It was frequented by sailors

from all over the world, who saw

it as home whenever their ships

arrived at the port.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board has written

a letter in support of the request

for a heritage grant.

LAND TRANSFERRED

About 80ha of Port Hills land

red-zoned after the earthquakes

was transferred from the Crown

to the city council at the beginning

of this month. The 440 Port

Hills properties are spread from

Whitewash Head on Scarborough

Hill to Charteris Bay, including

pockets in Diamond Harbour,

Lyttelton, Sumner, Redcliffs,

Cashmere, the Avoca, Horotane

and Heathcote valleys, and

Governors Bay.

FUNDS FOR COTTAGE

Stoddart Cottage, the oldest

colonial building in Diamond

Harbour and the birthplace of

painter Margaret Stoddart, will

benefit from $209,033 of funding

tips for gardening in July!

Now is the time to have a

great tidy up! If you have a

problem with pests in your

greenhouse empty it out and

give it a good clean with

weak solution of bleach.

This will kill any bugs or

diseases that are in their

dormant stage waiting for

warm weather to reappear.

Protect any frost

sensitive plants by

covering them with

a frost cloth. Plant

strawberries and

deciduous fruit trees

and roses now.

Prune your grape vines,

fruit trees and your

hydrangeas. Add lime to

your pink hydrangeas

to keep them pink and

Sulphur peat to the soil

for your blue hydrangeas

to keep them blue.

Indoor plants can be

a little more difficult

over Winter especially

where watering is

concerned, water your

house plants when the

potting mix is dry. It is

easy to over water at

this time of year.

A pest-free peninsula possible

• By Samantha Mythen

CASS BAY residents have rallied

together against rats and other

predators in their community as

part of a wider initiative to make

Banks Peninsula pest free.

Twenty-five people gathered

together on Sunday to learn

about predator control and how

to set their own traps.

The afternoon was organised

by Predator Free Port Hills, a

backyard trapping initiative that

aims to get Port Hills communities’

involved in protecting

native species.

Predator-free project co-ordinator

Marie Gray said the day

went really well with attendees

showing great interest and enthusiasm.

She said there has been a

recent surge in interest from

households in learning about

predator control in their own

backyards. She thought this was

inspired by people watching the

Fight for the Wild documentary

film and podcast series.

“People are realising the

importance of predator control

and what they can do to help,”

she said.

The project is aiming for a trap

to be in one in every five backyards

by 2024.

It was launched by the Summit

Road Society in 2016, with the

goal to create a buffer zone between

Christchurch city and the

wider Banks Peninsula area.

The project has since started

working alongside Whaka-ora

Healthy Harbour.

Whaka-ora programme

manager Karen Banwell also

attended the Sunday workshop.

“We are all working for a pestfree

Banks Peninsula,” she said.

She has caught 116 rats and

one weasel over the last three

years in her two backyard traps.

Brent Barrett led the workshop.

Barrett manages a number of

landscape pest control projects

around the Port Hills, including

in red-zoned land.

“With predator control, it’s

essential to think in a landscape

way, not just about your own

patch of land,” he said.

“In [a] dynamic approach, you

should team up with others in

your neighbourhood.”

He said targeting stoats and

weasels is essential as they are

very successful predators and if

not controlled, their populations

grow quickly.

However, Barrett said he was

RATS: Brent

quite optimistic about pest

control in the Port Hills.

“The Port Hills are more on

top of this than people realise,

receiving funding and focus

from various groups,” he said.

“We are working in a large

area, but with only a few gaps.”

Predator Free Sumner Bays is

currently working to eradicate

pests on the other side of the

Port Hills.

Diamond Harbour School

pupils and their families joined

in the initiative earlier in June,

building their own traps.

Speedsters

targeted

• From page 1

Police units patrolled from

Sumner, Redcliffs, Heathcote,

Lyttelton and the various bays,

through to Diamond Harbour

and over Gebbies Pass to the

Motukarara area.

Said Peoples: “The speed

enforcement we conducted was

targeting narrow and windy roads

where speed is an issue and causes

an extra hazard due to the road’s

nature.”

Static observation posts also

captured speeding drivers via

video recordings.

“I want to impress upon

offending drivers that even if they

don’t see police they may still

be recorded and stopped by an

unmarked car when they leave the

area or get a door knock days later

and receive an impoundment

notice and summons,” said

Peoples.

“Paranoia is the best prevention.”

A static observation post

at Naval Point resulted in the

impoundment of a car over the

weekend. The driver was charged

with sustained loss of traction

after a prolonged burnout.

Peoples said they would

continue to conduct these

operations monitoring anti-social

road use in Banks Peninsula.

Last week Lianne Dalziel announced

she will not be running

for a fourth term as mayor. It

has opened up what is expected

to be a hotly-contested mayoral

race.

Turner, deputy mayor

and Banks Peninsula Ward

councillor has previously said he

would not run against Dalziel.

The door is now open for him.

Heathcote resident Jasmine

Bishop who was in Lyttelton on

Monday, said she was likely go

with Turner if he ran due to his

connections with the Labour

Party, as a People’s Choice

councillor.

In contrast, John Creagh, of

Lyttelton, said: “Not Andrew, as

he hasn’t done a lot to be seen

for Lyttelton.”

Other potential mayoral

candidates are Heathcote

Ward city councillor Sara

Templeton and fellow city

councillors Mike Davidson and

James Gough.

A Heathcote resident, who

did not want to be named, said

he knows Templeton personally

and that he would vote for her

Kiwibank’s

Ferrymead

branch closes

• By Samantha Mythen

THE KIWIBANK branch in

Ferrymead closed on Friday.

The branch has been operating

out of Take Note on Ferry Rd,

alongside a New Zealand Post

branch.

A Kiwibank spokesperson said:

“For customers, Kiwibank would

have liked to maintain services

in Ferrymead, however the host

business, Take Note, has decided

not to continue its contract with

us.”

Take Note declined to comment.

Kiwibank has been in touch

with the seven customers who

exclusively use the Ferrymead

agent to work through alternative

banking options.

Kiwibank was originally

relocated to Ferrymead from its

branch in Woolston in 2015.

The community enthusiastically

campaigned against the move

with 240 people signing a petition

to stop its closure. The city

council joined the campaign by

sending a letter to New Zealand

Post, which owns Kiwibank.

However, the relocation still

went ahead.

At the time, New Zealand

Post retail distribution general

manager Tracey Berry said the

company was investing in a

full-service post shop and Kiwibank

branch in Ferrymead.

said banks are often at the heart

of communities.

“For every one facility like this

that closes in the community, we

lose one more element of community

connection,” he said.

“While I realise banking is

moving online to the digital

environment, there are still many

people in communities, such as

the elderly and business owners,

who value the service on-site

banks provide and the face-toface

contact.”

Turner said with the Woolston

closure in 2015, the Ferrymead

bank became even more essential,

yet with its closure on Friday,

residents are going to have to

travel even further for their contact

banking.

The nearest Kiwibank service

to Ferrymead is in St Martins or

on Colombo St.

School production dazzles

• By Samantha Mythen

BIG, SPECTACULAR and

exciting were some of the words

used to describe Diamond

Harbour School’s production of

The Lion King.

The show was held over the

weekend.

Acting deputy principal and

production director Sally Craw

said there was a huge buy-in

from the community.

The Friday and Saturday

evening shows sold out and

people had to be turned away

on Saturday.

There were only four tickets

left for the opening night on

Thursday.

“It was really exciting seeing

everyone in their costumes and

with their masks,” said Craw.

The entire school was involved,

either taking on a lead role or

acting in the wider chorus.

Teachers, parents and other

family members helped with

creating costumes and the background

set.

Craw said they have received

great positive feedback from

everyone who saw the show.

Several parents commented on

the school’s Facebook page that

it was the best school production

they had ever seen.

“I am really proud of the kids,”

said Craw.

“There is quite a lot of talent

here.”

Several performing pupils will

be attending Cashmere High

School next year, where Craw

expected they would engage with

the high school’s great drama

department.

Diamond Harbour School has

a production every two years.

“We now have two years to

recover,” said Craw with a laugh.

Keeping the old post office lines

• By Bea Gooding

“SOME PEOPLE preserve family

heirlooms, some people preserve

cakes, but why? If we stop doing

these things then I think we’ve

lost the plot.”

Those are the words of George

Wealleans, who has mastered the

art of preservation as founder

and inaugural president of the

Ferrymead Post and Telegraph

Historical Society.

It is why the 75-year-old is in

charge of the group responsible

for conserving the country’s

communications’ history in

a 1920s post office building,

nestled within Ferrymead

Heritage Park.

“If I don’t, then who’s going

to?” said Wealleans.

“It’s partly ego, partly a desire

to preserve our history. You

might as well preserve something

you’re keen on.”

The society collects and

restores vintage telegraphy,

telephone and switching systems

mainly from the New Zealand

Post Office and formerly Telecom

New Zealand.

The items, sourced from all

over the country, are in working

order, allowing visitors to get a

feel for what life was like before

the digital age.

The exhibition may look like a

CALLING: George Wealleans with one of the old telephones in the Ferrymead Post and

Telegraph Historical Society building.

museum, but it has not

strayed too far from its original

purpose – the building still

provides postal agency services

and philatelic (postage stamp)

sales.

Wealleans and a few others

established the society in 1977

during a time when the country’s

morse system and telegraph

service were closing down in

1963 and 1988, respectively.

One of the members already

worked at the Ferrymead

tramways, so the heritage park

was seen as the perfect location

to keep the practice alive.

Otherwise, it would have

“ended up on shelves in a shed.”

“When some of the equipment

out there was ready to be

taken out, we wanted to see it

preserved. So I called a meeting

with post officers in town and

established a group,” he said.

“[Now] we have been tasked, or

dumped, with the idea of looking

after this stuff on behalf of the

people of New Zealand.

“But there’s no benefit of

looking after this stuff other than

our hobby.”

Born in Oamaru, Wealleans

was raised in Timaru by his

uncle and aunt when his father

left the picture.

In the 23 years that followed,

he completed school certificate

and locked in his first job at the

Timaru Post Office at 16-yearsold

as a trainee telephone

mechanician.

In search of love, he

relocated to Christchurch in

1971 to get hitched, eventually

building a house, raising three

children of his own, and starting

a new role at the telephone

exchange.

of communication open

“We’re still at the same address

with the same phone number in

Avondale.”

Wealleans loved the idea

of being able to help facilitate

communication between others.

The biggest change he

witnessed over time was cell

phones. But as someone who

championed communication,

they were “abhorrent,” as they

created too many distractions.

He also prided himself on

accuracy – his boss once said his

wire tying and lacing skills were

always neat. “It’s the technology

too that got me hooked, and

the data from one computer to

another. The theory of how a cell

phone works is just as important

as the piece of equipment,” he

said.

“Each component leads to a

core computer, then it goes out

through a cellular network and

up to a satellite, passing bits of

messages, then back down to say,

the phone of your mate who just

happens to be having lunch in

San Francisco.”

OPERATOR: One of the society’s oldest telephones, a Bell/Blake transmitter, used

in New Zealand in the 1880s. Left – George Wealleans using some of the old post

office equipment.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

But after 31 years in the

industry, it all changed when he

was made redundant in 1992 –

two years after deciding to take

a decade-long hiatus as president

of the historical society.

He spent the next 17 years after

that working in a factory making

plastic bags before he “weaseled”

his way back into the society’s

presidential role about 10 years

ago.

“In every job I’ve had, there’s

been an element of being your

own master,” said Wealleans.

“Obviously you’re following

the instructions. Like at the

plastic bag machine, you’re given

instructions on how long to

make the bag, but they didn’t tell

you how fast to make it.

“So I fine-tuned the machine a

bit to get it going at say, 65 bags a

minute, instead of 50.”

Wealleans is at the

heritage park nearly every day,

and he would not have it any

other way.

But a major regret was not

becoming an architect after

nearly failing a technical exam

in high school – a dream that

grew momentum the second he

received his first Meccano set.

Said Wealleans: “I wouldn’t

go as far as saying I’m an artist

but I can visualise things from a

technical perspective, put it on

paper and draw it, like a circuit

diagram. I’ve always treated my

job as a hobby because I love my

work. I’m able to share all my

experiences with a whole lot of

people, even those who aren’t

ex-post office.”

Readers respond to last week’s article in the Bay Harbour News about a call

for a powered vessel ban in Rapaki

I live in Cass Bay and go

stand-up paddle boarding. I

thought Rapaki Bay was already

powerboat free. It really should

be.

People can launch small boats

and jet skis from Cass Bay and

with the bay becoming more

popular and busy there are

safety concerns, especially for

swimmers and children playing

in the water. I do not like noise

pollution as well.

There does need to be beaches

and bays that small boats can go

to though, for example on Quail

Island and out past Diamond

Harbour. – Marjorie Russell

I definitely agree with

imposing a ban on powered

vessels in Rapaki Bay.

I have thought this should be

the case every summer when

we are there swimming. –

Vivienne Le Couteur

We want to hear your views

on the issues affecting life

in Banks Peninsula

Send emails to:

barry@starmedia.kiwi

I certainly think there should

be a ban on motorised vessels at

Rapaki and that includes jet skis.

Rapaki is a very special area

and popular with swimmers. Jet

skis are dangerous and the noise

destroys the calm of the bay. The

same goes for motor boats.

It is also important for kai

moana gathering for the people

who live at Rapaki. I would like

to see more areas of the harbour

protected from motor boats and

jet skis. It must upset birds and

wildlife too, it is their home. –

Pat Scott, Lyttelton

Up until 2018 I lived in Cass

Bay. My house backed onto an

enviable beach front location.

Thus I took up stand-up

paddle boarding as a hobby.

Even then I was troubled by

those motorised vehicles with

irresponsible handlers.

I often return to the bays

to walk the tracks offered in

both directions.

Sunshine coinciding with

school holidays and public holidays

see greatly increased traffic,

water activities, jet skis and

smaller boats and dingies with

outboard vehicles coming into

the bay areas.

Water safety and speed restriction’

protocols often lapse.

Moreover, an increasing amount

of alcohol is bought to beaches,

consumed, and water etiquette is

compromised.

I certainly would not feel

confident to confront a jet skier

who I suspected was under the

influence of alcohol. I’d simply

remove myself from the water.

Now more than ever, when

it is critical to reverse and

protect our larger environments

from further degradations and

personal injury, should policies

place environment stewardship,

before those pleasure seekers

that have no regard to what

damage or anxiety they might

cause.

I strongly support a ban on

motorised vessels in Rapaki.

And support it being extended

in other coastal areas of the

Banks Peninsula.

I hope that residents and

non-residents can see improvements

and that increased safety

measures become the new norm.

for the greater majority of

people to enjoy together. – P J

WELL, IT was another busy few

weeks in the Banks Peninsula

electorate as we hurtled toward

the shortest day of the year.

Some of the highlights for

me were a visit to Kidsfirst

Lyttelton where the enthusiastic

youngsters opted to show me

how to clamber up the slopes of

the impressive backyard – I was

regrettably far less sure-footed

and, although fun, it was also

lovely to catch up in the warm

with the wonderful team at

Project Lyttelton and call in to

see Sergeant Peoples at the local

police station.

Similarly, I was very grateful

for the hospitality at the Woolston

Fire Station when Elaine,

one of my excellent electorate

staffers, and I called in with some

afternoon tea. I credit the quality

of the baking with the chance to

get behind the driver’s wheel.

visit with Liza and the team at

Highly recommend and congratulations.

It’s rare that I venture out of

support my colleague Kiri Allen

False Witness

by Karin Slaughter

He saw what you did ... He knows who you are. The

stunning new standalone from the no.1 international

bestselling author

They thought they’d got away with it ... they were

wrong.

Leigh and her sister Callie are not bad people - but one

night, more than two decades ago, they did something

terrible. And the result was a childhood tarnished by secrets,

broken by betrayal, devastated by violence.

Years later, Leigh has pushed that night from her mind and become a successful

lawyer - but when she is forced to take on a new client against her will, her world

begins to spiral out of control.

Because the client knows the truth about what happened twenty-three years ago.

He knows what Leigh and Callie did. And unless they stop him, he’s going to tear

their lives apart ...

Just because you didn’t see the witness ... doesn’t mean he wasn’t there.

Sisters of the Resistance

A Novel of Catherine Dior’s Paris Spy Network

by Christine Wells

Two sisters join the Paris Resistance in this page-turning new novel inspired by the

real-life bravery of Catherine Dior, sister of the fashion designer and a heroine of

World War II France—perfect for fans of Kate Quinn and Jennifer Chiaverini.

“As dazzling as a Dior gown! With a gorgeous blend of fashion, heartbreak, heroism,

and love this book will transport you to France...” —Natasha Lester, New York Times

bestselling author of The Paris Secret

Paris, 1944: The war is nearly over, but for members of the Resistance in occupied

France, it is more dangerous than ever before. Twenty-five-year-old Gabby Foucher

loathes the Nazis, though as the concierge of 10 rue Royale, she does her best to

avoid conflict—unlike her bolder sister Yvette, who finds trouble at every turn.

Then they are both recruited into the Resistance by Catherine Dior and swept into

a treacherous world of spies, fugitives, and intrigue. While Gabby risks everything

for the man she is hiding from the Nazis, Yvette must decide whether to trust an

enigmatic diplomat who seems to have guessed her secret. As the threat of betrayal

draws ever-closer, one slip could mean the deaths of many, and both sisters must

make choices they might regret.

Singing in a chorus an uplifting experience

• By Eva Munro

IT WAS QUITE an effort for

my friends to convince me to

audition for the Christchurch City

Chorus in February.

Retired last year, I was already

pretty busy with my garden and

oil painting. I wasn’t looking for

more hobbies.

How wrong I was because singing

turned out to be more than

a hobby. It’s a new and inspiring

way of life – new knowledge,

new skills, new experience, new

acquaintances, even a new reality.

I am not a native English speaker

and thought I would struggle

with my accent. I had never heard

of the songs we perform. Each

week at practice, we are taught

clear and correct pronunciation

and breathing techniques and

even acting while singing.

I then just download each song

10 times in a row onto my phone

and keep listening and singing

along while gardening or doing

my house chores.

I keep discovering my voice,

which I never even thought I had.

Long ago, I sang at after-school

care.

Later, I sang Happy Birthday at

parties. These were my only experiences

of performing until in

April, as one of over 100 women

in the chorus, I got standing ovations

at my first concerts.

A crucial part of the learning

process and the atmosphere in the

chorus are our leaders. Our musical

director, Virginia Humphrey-

Taylor began her training singing

in opera and musical theatre.

Richard Marrett also supports

us as a vocal coach and pianist.

Apart from being highly qualified

professionals, they are kind,

joyful, cordial people with a great

sense of humour.

Nataliia, the friend who introduced

me to the chorus, agrees

that it offers a lot more than

merely singing.

“The chorus is a ‘me’ time away

from the constant stress of everyday

life. It gives a sense of belonging

and connection, the pleasure

of doing something together,

constant development of vocal

skills … the whole atmosphere

feels benevolent and uplifting,’’

Nataliia said.

Nataliia sings to her baby to

practice, and the clever child is

already singing along.

Singing aloud and thinking

about making it clear and

expressive shuts the mind to the

challenges and problems of these

days.

Singing in the chorus is indeed

a way to a better world.

Facelift for Suzuki Ignis adds to appeal

A SALESMAN once told me cars

sell on style.

That doesn’t surprise me,

but for my money it’s what is

underneath the body shell that is

most important as a purchase.

Suzuki New Zealand has done

really well with its cheeky and

charming compact sport utility

vehicle – the Ignis.

That comes down to what

is good to look at, along

with engineering that is built

for efficiency along with

performance and reliability.

I’m not talking about speed

and acceleration, the Ignis is not

designed for that kind of role,

but what it does do really well

is combine some out-of-thebox

thinkingdesign-wise along

with the mechanicals that fit the

mould of the car.

For 2021 the Ignis has just had

a bit of a facelift, those alluring

looks are now even stronger

with a new grille, bumpers and

chunky wheel arches. According

to Suzuki, the changes promote

a more rugged look. I’m not

convinced that’s what draws

people to the model, I kind of

liked its more pretty look, but in

no way am I’m suggesting buyers

won’t flock to the Ignis, just

likethey have previously.

There’s also been a refresh

inside, there are new seat

coverings along with upgraded

trim details and highlight accents.

Importantly, the new Ignis

also gets a driver’s seat height

adjuster. The reason being is

the Ignis is a car that tempts

those not quite so agile. With

a tallish ride height the Ignis is

easy to access, and with those

extra few centimetres of seat

height that task has just become

even more comfortable. One

of Suzuki’s descriptions for the

Ignis is a high-riding hatchback

with a benefit of that being its

accessibility.

The Ignis also lands here at a

very tempting price - $19,990.

That will buy you into the series

with a manual gearbox, an extra

$3000 will get you continuously

variable automatic transmission,

while the Limited specification

version, as tested, lists at $24,490.

With all of the changes it’s

important to remember the

concept of Ignis hasn’t changed

one bit. It’s also been described

as a mini-SUV, which makes it

a practical load carrier, but in

Limited form it’s only a car for

four people, there are only two

seat belts in the rear. However, if

you are an Ignis buyer and would

like the opportunity to carry

three in the rear, then the GLX

will seat five, albeit it’s a tight

five-seater.

SQUAT: The Ignis is short at 3.7m but it has definite style.

SUZUKI IGNIS LIMITED: Chunky bumper sets the 2021 Ignis apart from its predecessors.

All that aside, under the

hatchback there’s 264-litres of

storage space, if you fold those

rear seats down you can add up

to 516-litres.

Up front sits the delightful

1242cc four-cylinder engine.

It’s a real honey, characterised

by its sweet tone and honest

performance through the

CVT. Suzuki rates the engine

with 66kW and 120Nm power

outputs, even though torque

peaks tallish in the rev band

(4400rpm), the engine works

freely thanks to it being free of

gearbox load.

According to Suzuki’s

promotional material, the

Ignis will return a 4.9-litre per

100km combined cycle fuel

usage average. In my opinion

that would be quite achievable,

during my evaluation time the

readout was constantly listing

at 5.9l/100km, with a 4l/100km

figure cruising gently at 100km/h,

the engine turning over at just

2000rpm in the tallest part of the

gearing.

In terms of performance, the

Ignis will accelerate to 100km/h

in 12sec and will complete a

highway overtake in 8.7sec (80-

120km/h). The engine is a willing

worker and charms with its quiet

operating manner, there’s even a

sport mode if you want to have

the engine working over with a

bit more freedom.

When the corners arrive the

• Price – Suzuki Ignis

Limited, $24,490

• Dimensions – Length,

3700mm; width, 1690mm;

height, 1595mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1242cc, 66kW,

120Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 12sec

• Fuel usage – 4.9l/100km

Ignis has tidy handling manners.

It’s important to note the Limited

version gets wheels an inch in

diameter bigger than the GLX

models. Shod with grippy 175/60

x 16in Bridgestone tyres, the

Limited has solid steering feeland

definite directional accuracy.

In terms of suspension control

the Ignis does well given the

limitation of its torsion beam

rear axle, but sensible spring and

damper rates provideacceptable

levels of in-cabin comfort with

little body movement in a

corner. That comes down to the

lightweight of the Ignis, even

in Limited form it weighs just

over 900kg, that not only reaps

handling benefits but is one of the

contributors to sassy performance

and amazing fuel economy.

For a small car the Ignis is big

on specification. Some of the

major items include keyless entry

and ignition, digitally controlled

air conditioning, cruise control

with speed limiter, satellite

navigation, and Apple Car Play

and Android Auto. The latter

functions are operable through

a large centre dash mounted

screen. It is intuitive, simple to

navigate, and doubles as the

viewer for the rear camera.

Importantly, the Ignisalso gets

a high level of electronic kit for

safety, there’s a suite of safety

features that are too numerous

to list in detail, but I can report

that you can relax in the Ignis,

there are protection systems and

a myriad of functions to keep you

out of trouble in the first instance.

Even though Suzuki is

marketing the Ignis as a mini-

SUV, it must be remembered that

it is just a two-wheel-drive (front)

model only and shouldn’t be

asked to travel cross-country.

However, it is a car that charms

with its ability, and don’t let its

diminutive stature fool you, it is

a fun car to drive and to be in. If

you are a person who is drawn to

abstract and like things just a little

out of the ordinary, then the Ignis

is the car for you, its interesting

shapes, colours and standalone

exterior will surely please.

Least of all, its five-year

warranty by Suzuki New Zealand

and the enterprising maintenance

programme from Christchurch’s

dealership makes it an affordable

and rewarding purchase.

A Lifestyle of Luxury

9 Beachville Road, Redcliffs

4 bedrooms, 2 living, 1 study, 4 bathrooms, 3 car garaging

Enjoying a prime yet private position off the prestigious Redcliffs waterfront,

this luxuriously appointed residence responds magnificently to the needs

of modern lifestyles and achieves comfort and flexibility within a skilfully

composed floor plan. Designed by local architect Marcus Stufkens, the twolevel

layout has been exquisitely arranged with well-considered spaces and

serves up exceptional living and accommodation options across both floors.

The home’s upper level is dedicated to everyday living and hosts the primary

open-plan entertaining area, which exudes modern appeal and steps outdoors

to two sheltered balconies that capture views of the water. An attractive

family bathroom and two of the home’s four bedrooms are also situated

upstairs, including the master suite that comes complete with a luxurious

walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. An alternative living zone and additional kitchen

occupy the ground floor, which is favourable for families craving space, or

buyers simply seeking a well-appointed area where they can work from home

or have extended guests. Further bedrooms and bathrooms are positioned

downstairs, ensuring your options are cleverly distributed across both floors.

Entertaining in style outdoors is assured with a supreme alfresco environment

that comprises a volcanic stone fireplace and spa, while the outdoor shower

provides the perfect spot to freshen up after a day at the beach. Versatility

is heightened by the presence of a media room and dedicated study with

stunning in-built cabinetry, while an extensive three-car garage, ample on-site

parking and a sauna round out this endlessly appealing residence.
