Resilience helps couple

prepare for Coast to Coast

Hope found

after grief

of losing

daughter

SEVEN YEARS ago, Sumner

parents Lucy and Trevor Hone

experienced the unimaginable

challenge of finding hope after

devastating loss when their

12-year-old daughter Abi was

killed in a car crash.

The resilience they learned

throughout their grieving process

is now helping them take on the

Coast to Coast.

Lucy had thought about tackling

the event for more than a decade

but lack of time to train and a fear

of Goat Pass had always prevented

her from fully committing.

“It’s something I’ve thought

about doing but has always felt

beyond me,” she said.

“And I was terrified of Goat Pass

– I’ve done a lot of running over

the years but I’m not comfortable

climbing over boulders and I

wasn’t sure I’d be able to get down

that riverbed.”

YOU HAVE to admire Lucy

and Trevor Hone (page 1).

They are in training for the

Coast to Coast, an epic challenge

of physical and mental

stamina.

The couple have had to have

an insurmountable amount

of mental strength over the

past seven years, after their

12-year-old daughter Abi

was tragically killed in a

much-publicised car crash.

Lucy has been thinking

about tackling the Coast to

Coast for a decade. But a

fear of the treacherous Goat

Pass and a lack of training

time has put the plan on hold

until now.

So she will make her debut

in the tandem event with

husband Trevor.

“I knew that with Trevor by

my side I could somehow get

through it,” she said.

I am sure they will.

Freedom camping changes likely

Submissions

being

considered by

hearings panel

PUBLIC SUBMISSIONS on

the freedom camping bylaw

covering Banks Peninsula are

being considered this week.

The hearings panel began

considering the 97 public submissions

on potential changes to

the Freedom Camping Bylaw on

Monday.

The bylaw was introduced five

years ago.

The proposed bylaw changes

include creating a specified

area at Naval Point in Lyttelton

where freedom campers can

stay and limiting the number

of freedom camping spots to 18

vehicles.

It also includes creating a City

Coastal Restricted Zone – where

freedom campers could stay for

up to four nights in any 30-day

period.

This new zone would prevent

campers using the current 500m

rule to move short distances

every few days and stay in the

coastal area for extended periods

of time.

Furthermore, it would introduce

a new rule to encourage

CHANGING LAWS: Public submissions on changes to a freedom camping bylaw

affecting Banks Peninsula will be considered this week.

campers to be more careful

about how they set up their

camping vehicles and any other

camping gear. The rule would

prevent campers from blocking

thoroughfares and spreading

out.

A report prepared by

city council staff for the

hearings panel said most of

the submissions received are

generally supportive of the

proposed bylaw changes,

although some disagreed, and

others put forward suggestions

to further improve the bylaw.

The hearings panel will

consider all matters raised in

the submissions and seek advice

from city council staff before

making recommendations to

the city council on the final

form of the bylaw.

The aim is to have an

updated Freedom Camping

Bylaw in place by the start of the

summer.

Knitters give babies a warm welcome

FOUR WOMEN from

Ferrymead Rotary have knitted

almost 100 garments for babies

born at the Christchurch

Women’s Hospital this year.

Pat Edward, Debbie Woolf,

Kathryn Tovgaard and Barbara

Crooks began the project about

four months ago, although the

Ferrymead Rotary group has

been providing knitted clothing

to the hospital for some time.

Kathryn has personally been

knitting for the hospital for five

years.

Barbara said they intensified

their efforts this year after

receiving a call for help from the

hospital.

All babies born at the hospital

are given a woollen hat at birth,

while woollen singlets, matinee

jackets and booties are available

for mothers to take home.

So far, the group has knitted

more than 60 woolly hats, with

Pat heading the count.

The hats produced are a variety

of different sizes and colours.

Barbara said Ferrymead

Rotary has funded some of the

wool, but all of the knitters’ time

is given voluntarily.

They estimate up to seven

hours goes into making each hat.

Most of the knitting has been

done individually, although the

four have got together from time

to time to share wool and

swap notes.

Acknowledging Rotary clubs

used to be men only, Kathryn

said: “People don’t necessarily

connect Rotarians with knitting

but anything is possible.”

She said being a part of

a Rotary club was a family

tradition.

“One thing I said a long time

ago was that I always wanted

to help out in the community

throughout my life,” she said.

“A group of people can do

so much more than just an

individual.”

CHAMPION KNITTERS:

Ferrymead Rotary’s Kathryn

Tovgaard, Debbie Woolf, Pat

director Debbie Woolf said the

club is also working on making

Quilters share their colourful creations

• By Samantha Mythen

THE BAYS Harbour Quilting

Group is exhibiting its spring

collection at Stoddart Cottage in

Diamond Harbour throughout

September.

Marilyn Hopkins has been

a member of the group for a

decade, with 10 years’ of her

creations on display.

She said the group of nine

started with just a few friends,

quilting in the Diamond

Harbour hall.

But the building was “too big

and too cold” so the friends

moved their quilting catch-ups

to each other’s homes.

The retirees, based around

Lyttelton Harbour, now meet

once a month for the day.

They occasionally travel over

the hill for a crafting session

with friends who have since

moved into the city.

At each session, they share

knowledge and skills, inspiration,

morning tea and laughter.

Marilyn’s mother Josephine

was a dressmaker and taught her

how to sew when she was young,

although she only took a liking

to it when she started making

clothing for her first grandchild.

As that grandchild grew older,

Marilyn turned to quilting.

“I like quilting as you can

make it up as you go along or

you can copy a pattern, you don’t

have to try and fit it to anyone,”

she said.

“It’s also just about simple

sewing, you don’t have to do

those horrible things like sewing

in a zip.”

One of the favourite quilts she

has created is on her bed and

is made with doilies from her

mother.

VIBRANT: Marilyn Hopkins with her multi-piece quilt, one of

several on display at Stoddart Cottage in Diamond Harbour

this month. ​

It usually takes Marilyn a

month to make a quilt, but one

of her pieces in the exhibition

took three months.

“It is made up of thousands of

pieces of fabric,” she said.

Her current project is making

a ‘block of the day.’

A member of the Kiwi Quilters

Facebook group posted a 12x12

inch block each day during

lockdown, and Marilyn decided

to take on the challenge.

Alongside the 18 quilts on

display in the exhibition, there

will also be fabric-covered

notebooks, bags, cushions, tea

cosies and soft toys.

Dog park idea needs

community input

• By Samantha Mythen

IF DIAMOND Harbour

residents want a dog park, a

group is needed to spearhead it.

This is what the Diamond

Harbour Community Association

told resident Liz Wyllie

when she suggested a dog park

idea at the association meeting

last Monday.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member Scott Winter,

who was present at the meeting,

had received advice on the matter

from the city council, which

he passed over to Wyllie.

“They would need to find

some city council land, and for it

to be called a dog exercise area,

not a dog park as there are fewer

regulations for an exercise area,”

he said.

Wyllie said she was told the

city council parks team, which

oversees Christchurch’s urban

and regional parks and botanic

and heritage gardens, has “no

money so we will need to get

some financing to fence it and

put in water.”

She is now trying to decide

whether the idea is something

she can commit enough time to.

SUPPORT: Residents are keen to have a dog exercise area

established in Diamond Harbour.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Does

Diamond Harbour need a

dog park? Email your views

to samantha.mythen@

starmedia.kiwi

Wyllie had suggested the idea

of a dog park to the Diamond

Harbour Facebook group in

July.

“So many people have dogs

would be lovely to have a place

that they can play and run not

annoying others,” she said.

“I hate having to drive to town

for this when we live in such a

lovely place.”

Another resident had

suggested the idea in June, with

many people supporting the

idea.

“My dog gives it two paws up,”

said resident Robert EH.

City council community

parks manager Al Hardy said

if the idea was supported, the

community board could then

request city council staff to

investigate the suitability of an

area and any funding available

for establishment.

Break-ins prompt call

for more street lighting

• By Samantha Mythen

SEVERAL RECENT break-ins

and a car theft in Diamond

Harbour have residents

wondering whether improved

street lighting will prevent

further thefts.

After Scott Halliwell had his

work truck broken into and

tools stolen during lockdown,

he approached Banks Peninsula

Community Board member and

fellow Diamond Harbour

resident Scott Winter

about the idea of street

lighting.

“I do think putting in

lighting could be a good

idea. I live at the old end

of Koromiko, the dark

part of the street, which

is not very well lit,” he

said.

“It could act as a

deterrent as it’s more likely to be

seen and noticed when acting

suspiciously.”

Winter said several other

residents had also approached

him with their concerns about

the thefts, and he brought this up

at last week’s community board

meeting.

Chairwoman Tori Peden

said, as a result, the board had

requested more information

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think Diamond Harbour

needs more street

lighting? Email your views

to samantha.mythen@

starmedia.kiwi

from the city council on the

potential for installing and

extending more street lights in

Diamond Harbour.

“If there were potential

plans for this, it would go

back to the community

for consultation,” she

said.

Said Winter: “It

would then be up to the

residents on whether

they want more lighting

or not.”

Tori Peden Community board

member Howard Needham

said it would be a matter of

“strategic placement,” balancing

needs for safety with preventing

light pollution.

City council acting head of

transport Lynette Ellis said

the city council is currently

preparing the information

requested from the board.

“We are aiming to present

this to the board in October or

November,” she said.

• From page 1

After hearing about a fellow

gym member’s experience of taking

part in the multisport event

and realising she could compete

in tandem, Hone decided to enter

in the 2022 Coast to Coast, persuading

Trevor to enter with her.

“I knew that with Trevor by

my side I could somehow get

through it,” she said.

Lucy and

Trevor are

currently

training with

two bike rides,

three runs and

one kayak a

week, following

a programme

from Team CP

endurance coach Richard Greer.

Complete “newbies,” to the

event, Lucy said they are both

feeling “exhausted and rather

bewildered” with their training

right now.

The Port Hills, Sumner beach

and Avon-Heathcote Estuary are

their training environment.

They had never white water

kayaked before, which was a

“really steep learning curve.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever been as

scared as I was that first weekend

on the white water, but we’ve

practised lots on the estuary and

each week it gets a bit better,” she

said.

Having researched resilience

for more than a decade and now

working as a resilience teacher

with the New Zealand Institute

of Wellbeing and Resilience,

Lucy said she has been looking

at the Coast to Coast challenge

through a psychological lens.

She started her research at the

University of Pennsylvania in

Philadelphia, which in 2009 was

the only place in the world where

she could study the field.

Her own resilience was tested

in the extreme in 2014 when Abi,

her best friend Ella Summerfield

and Ella’s mother Sally Summerfield

were killed instantly after a

Dutch businessman failed to stop

at an intersection and crashed

into their car near Rakaia.

Physical training a challenge

Abi Hone

RACE BEGINNINGS: The start of the Coast to Coast

multisport race at Kumara Beach on the West Coast.

More than seven years on from

the tragedy, Lucy said, without

a doubt, her work has given

her a mental advantage when

taking on training for the Coast

to Coast, but the physical side

of training is often the bigger

challenge.

“I can overcome the mind

games. I have that self-belief . . .

but I need to put things in place

to overcome the physical side,”

she said.

“I’ve got a very busy start-up

business and my body’s not

feeling as good as it used to.

I’m tired all the time from

training and it’s a juggle to keep

progressing but allow time for

recovery too.”

More than 600 bales of

spring pea straw were sold

over the weekend during the

annual fundraiser organised

by the Ferrymead Lions

Club. As a result, more than

$2000 was raised, which

will be donated to different

causes such as Camp

Quality for children with

cancer at Living Springs,

the Diabetes Foundation

and New Zealand guide

dogs. The next pea straw

sale will be on September

25 at The Princess Margaret

Dinghy races start yachting season

OPEN DAY: The new Pleasant Point Yacht Club facilities will host a dinghy race meeting this weekend. Senior boats compete in one of the many races

the club holds each sailing season out on the estuary.

• By John Cosgrove

TACKING through Covid-19

regulations ensures a fair wind

for the Pleasant Point Yacht Club

as it starts sailing this weekend.

On Saturday, the club will

launch its 101 st season on the

estuary.

Club committee member Nigel

Humphreys said they will be out

on the estuary from the South

New Brighton Park as they host

an open race for dinghy sailors.

“Despite Covid we’ll be out

there, but because of the delay

in opening by many other clubs

in the district we are expecting

a slightly lower turnout than in

previous years.”

The race starts at 2.40pm and

Humphreys said spectators and

those interested in sailing are

welcome to come along.

“Our 101 st season is going to

be a good one as we have new

boats and facilities on hand,

they are great and make a vast

improvement from five years in

containers.”

He credits the new facilities

and the heightened interest

in sailing due to the recent

America’s Cup and Olympics

as the reason for the growing

interest in sailing.

“Some come for the social

side and some come to race, to

help them all we will be starting

junior and adult Learn to Sail

programmes in October.”

The junior course will run

during the school holidays from

October 11 through to October

15, while the adult learn to sail

course will run from October 17

through to November 13.

The courses follow the

Yachting NZ coaching

programme and will be run

by the club’s learn to sail coordinators

Dan O’Sullivan

and Brett Hawkes, with

assistance of experienced club

members.

No experience is needed to

take part and the club will

supply yachts and life jackets

… but recommend suitable

footwear and warm clothing.

Upshot Coffee

consent

application

delayed

• By Samantha Mythen

UPSHOT COFFEE’S resource

consent application has been

delayed, but will be submitted

before the end of the month.

Coffee shop co-owner Justin

Good said the application is currently

being finalised by a planner

and lawyer.

Good had hoped to submit it

last week.

“We had to get submissions prepared

by several parties to support

the application,” he said.

“But [it] will be submitted as

soon as possible.”

Upshot Coffee has been operating

with a temporary accommodation

licence in Heathcote Valley

under the Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Act. However, the legislation

expired in June, meaning the

cafe’s licence also became void.

The city council compliance

team has since agreed to non-enforcement

until September 30, allowing

the coffee shop to operate

until then.

In order to continue long-term

operation, resource consent

is needed. While the resource

consent is being processed, the

owners are hoping to get an

extension of non-enforcement to

stay open.

Pioneers of the Bridle

Track

This coming Sunday marks the

128 th anniversary of the colonial

governor Lord Glasgow’s signing

into law the Electoral Act of

1893 that finally gave all New

Zealand women over 21 years

of age the right to vote in their

parliamentary elections.

With the passing of this legislation,

the country became the

very first democracy in the world

to provide for women’s suffrage.

The centenary celebrations

of Women’s Suffrage 1893-1993

were accompanied in Lyttelton

by a Bridle Path mural, proposed

by the artists Ronnie and Sarah

Kelly, depicting pioneer women

climbing the Bridle Path.

Selected by the Lyttelton Harbour

Basin Suffrage Committee,

their completed work can still be

seen on the wall that runs from

the start of Bridle Path Rd, at the

western end of London St, to the

base of Ticehurst Rd.

Featured in the Christchurch

Star on September 4, 1993, the

artists are shown in front of a

section of the 42m mural with

the museum’s own Ann Jolliffe

and Wendy McKay.

These centenary celebrations

were included in the museum

Local law firm welcomes

new senior lawyer

The Ferrymead office of long-established

law firm Saunders & Co offers the full

spectrum of legal services for residents in

the Bay Harbour News area. Comprising

partner Nicola Coombes, associate

Charlotte Grimshaw and lawyer Buvi

Naash, along with support staff, earlier this

year the team welcomed a new member,

senior lawyer Linda de Paor.

Originally from Ireland, where she grew

up in a seaside suburb of Dublin, Linda

says she always wanted to be a lawyer, but

also loved English literature and French.

Accordingly, she initially completed an

arts degree in English and French at

University College Dublin, which included

a year at a university in Brussels. This

was followed by an intense post-graduate

law course and further study at the Law

Society of Ireland, with mandatory inoffice

training.

“The professions of solicitor and

barrister are separate in Ireland; those

wanting to be a solicitor study at the Law

Society of Ireland and those wanting to

become a barrister study at King’s Inn,”

Linda explains.

Senior lawyer, Linda de Paor

After she qualified in 2003, Linda’s

career path included working in general

practice, in-house legal work at a financial

institution and four years at one of

Ireland’s largest local authorities practising

property and commercial law.

During this time, Linda married and a

few years later, with a second child on the

way, the family had the opportunity to

take time out for some international travel.

“My husband was then offered a job in

New Zealand, with a two-and-a-half-year

work to residency visa. That was just after

the earthquakes. We were only going to

stay for the two and a half years, but we fell

in love with New Zealand and the lifestyle

here, and here we still are.”

Within the first year, the family moved

to Cass Bay.

“Even though things were difficult to

adjust to in the post-quake landscape, we

have never looked back. Cass Bay is a truly

beautiful place and being beside the sea

is in keeping with the experience of my

husband and I growing up. Though we still

love Ireland, and miss it, our two boys,

now 13 and nine, are true Kiwi kids. Our

youngest was born here. They love surfing

and skiing – they’re very ‘outdoorsy’.”

Linda says there are other families in

similar situations living in Cass Bay, and

because of that it is a very close-knit

community.

“We are lucky to have good friends and

we support each other, so this makes us

especially happy to live here.”

To practise law in New Zealand, Linda

was required to sit some additional exams,

and once she completed those, she joined

a city law firm.

“I thoroughly enjoyed working there,

but when the opportunity came up at

Saunders & Co in Ferrymead, I was

delighted to take it. I wanted to be closer

to home and be more connected to my

locale, so it was the perfect fit for me.”

Linda specialises in conveyancing for

both residential and commercial clients

as well as general commercial and private

client legal work including drawing up

wills and power of attorney documents.

She is also keen to extend her practice into

relationship property law.

“I really enjoy my work and, in

particular, I love the client interaction –

getting to know clients and developing a

rapport with them. As lawyers, we are in

a position of trust, and I take that very

seriously.

“Our office environment is very

harmonious, supportive and collaborative,

and we socialise together as well. We are a

very happy team both inside and outside

of work.”

Return to Berlin

by Ellen Feldman

For fans of The Light After the War, a young woman haunted by a

heartbreaking secret finds hope and forgiveness in a city shattered by war.

Young Meike Mosbach and her brother escape Berlin just before the horror of

Kristallnacht, leaving their parents and little sister to follow them to America.

But their family never arrives. Haunted by their loss, Meike becomes

Millie and graduates from college to work as a magazine

journalist while David enlists in the army to work in intelligence.

After the war, they both return to a shattered Berlin, hoping

against hope to find their family. Postwar Berlin is a wild

west where drunken soldiers brawl, spies ply their trade and

‘werewolves’ - unrepentant Nazis - scheme to rise again.

Consumed with rage at her former country, Millie’s job for

the army rooting out Nazis from regaining a voice seems the

perfect outlet. But her anger begins to thaw as she is faced with

the daily reality of what the war has done to everyone, and the

enigmatic Major Harry Sutton, who seems too eager to be fair to the

Germans and far too perceptive about Millie. In the rubble of postwar Berlin,

Millie must come to terms with a devastating secret and find the courage to

embrace love - and a new beginning.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Proud Samoan builds

future for family

Tony Siva is a proud

Samoan and even prouder

since he returned to

study and got himself an

apprenticeship to become a

builder.

“My plan for the future

is to buy or build my own

house and hopefully go

back to Samoa to rebuild

my village,” he says.

Prior to studying at Ara

Institute of Canterbury,

Tony worked as a sales

assistant for Fonterra. He

says he decided to become

a qualified builder because

he wanted to build a better

future for his family.

Tony completed the New Zealand

Certificate in Construction Trade Skills at

Ara, which was free through Ara’s Pacific

Trades Training scheme. During his studies,

Tony was encouraged to explore his culture.

“We were given our own tools for the

course, and we learned how to interpret our

culture through woodwork,” he says. “So as

well as learning how to build a house and

things like retaining walls, decks and fences,

I also made a To’oto’o (Samoan chief ’s staff).”

Ara’s Pacific Trades Training scheme

provides extensive pastoral support to

students. “It helps you get to your end goal,”

Tony says. “There’s lots of care and support

provided - like bus money, petrol vouchers,

food vouchers, counsellors and advisors.

The Pacific Island Students Association

offers a lot too, and Ara puts on lots of social

and sports events throughout the semester.”

Tony says returning to study as an adult

was a little daunting, especially as this was

his first experience of tertiary-level study.

“At first I thought it would be a bit awkward

because of my age, being surrounded by

kids who just finished school. But my

tutors were great – they made learning

relevant and fun – and I was encouraged to

persevere and complete the course.”

Tony is undertaking his apprenticeship

with Home NZ Construction. He’s applying

the skills he learned at Ara and picking up

many more on the job, while earning a good

wage. He’s quick to encourage other adults

to consider learning a trade.

“It’s never too late to study or change

your career path. If you work hard and put

the time and effort into a trade, I guarantee

you’ll reap the benefits.”

18 Bay Harbour News Wednesday September 15 2021 Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Honda’s hybrid technology put to test

HONDA IS no stranger to hybrid

vehicles.

It all started in 1999 with the Insight

and since then Civic and Jazz

(Fit) hybrids have long been on offer,

and if you take into account Fit

and Civic models that have landed

pre-owned from Japan, then the

company has a fairly broad hybrid

representation in the New Zealand

market.

A new Jazz has just landed and

the line-up includes a hybrid.

However, it must be said that this

hybrid works quite differently than

previous generation versions.

The newcomer has a two-motor

system driving the front wheels.

Yes, the petrol engine works in

typical hybrid fashion, working

to promote drive and charging

the lithium-ion battery pack. The

entire system is seamless and as a

driver you’d never know there is a

complex set of mechanicals under

the bonnet.

The e:HEV Jazz sits in a

three-model line-up that starts at

$28,000 for the entry-level Life. A

Crossstar version adds $2000 while

the e:HEV Luxe at $35,000 represents

economical motoring and

environmental benefits for those

who want to join the electric revolution

but also want the versatility a

petrol-fuelled engine offers.

One of the aspects I particularly

like is the range of the Jazz hybrid.

When I picked the evaluation

car up it was full of fuel, offering

around 800km before a fill-up was

BIG CHANGES: The latest generation Honda Jazz has

many styling differences from that of its predecessor.

HONDA JAZZ E:HEV: State-of-the-art hybrid driveline.

necessary. Of course, I never drove

that distance, but in the 280km I

did travel the fuel gauge barely left

the top mark.

In real terms, Honda claim at

best possible usage a 2.8-litre per

100km combined cycle average.

My time in the e:HEV Jazz concluded

with the readout showing

4.8l/100km that I thought was quite

remarkable given that my driving

style is never that thrifty.

What makes the e:HEV Jazz so

economical is the way the engine/

motor combination works. The

engine is largely biased towards

recharging the batteries; sure, there

is associated drive when required

but the motors do provide a large

part of momentum.

What’s more, the hybrid Jazz just

builds on what has made the model

so popular in generations past, it

has always been a fuel miser, even

the petrol-only models are rated

with a 5.8l/100km combined cycle

average. That’s something that

Honda has focused heavily on over

the years, efficient engines have

long been a priority.

Driving the hybrid Jazz requires

no special technique, if you weren’t

told it was a hybrid I doubt that

you would find anything different

about it, except for the engine

cutting in and out as it gets about

its work. Honda has focused on

simplicity and that’s what makes it

so it intuitive to drive, the controls

and layout are deep but simplistic

to use. You can also select an electric

drive only function, that will

give you a range of about 40km,

depending on weight in the car and

the type of journey ie: hills or flat

roads and driving style.

The Jazz e:HEV is also loaded

with features and specification such

as full leather trim with heated

seats up front, keyless entry and

ignition, Apple CarPlay, cruise

control, and 9in central dash

display that incorporates large and

easy-to-understand icons.

If you are thinking that’s a lot of

kit to fit into a small car, bear in

mind that the Jazz is the space master.

It may be compact, but Honda’s

designers have made use of every

centimetre of space and it works

functionally.

Luggage capacity is rated by

Honda at 304-litres with the rear

seats in place, extending to 1205-litres

when folded flat. Honda’s

legendary ‘Magic Seat’ configuration

allows both fold-flat or flip-up

flexibility, the latter giving higher

load space.

Honda, as a manufacturer, is also

very proactive in terms of building

safety into its models. The e:HEV

Jazz gets a full suite of safety kit that

is labelled Honda Sensing and it

includes the electronic and mechanical

functions that keep you out of

trouble in the first instance. It forms

part of the criteria that easily meets

a five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program rating.

• Price – Honda Jazz e:HEV,

$35,000

• Dimensions – Length,

4045mm; width, 1695mm;

height, 1537mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1497cc, 72kW

(+80kW), 131Nm (+253Nm),

continuously variable

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.5sec

• Fuel usage – 2.81l/100km

I took the evaluation car on my

normal highway route heading

west to Hororata and returning

to the city via Dunsandel. It is an

adept open road cruiser with quiet

motion and solid road feel. Vision

through all quarters is vast, and if

you look at the way the panoramic

front windshield is angled well

forward of the dash panel you get a

fairly good idea of how well the car

is engineered in the first instance.

In terms of handling, the Jazz

feels nimble and agile, that’s no

surprise, it is light and what weight

is in the car sits low in the floorpan.

In comparison to its length

and width, the height of the Jazz at

1.53m doesn’t affect the handling,

gravitational movement is minimal.

What’s more, the Jazz gets a

perfect ride, the spring and damper

rates have been chosen sensibly,

there is much comfort on offer

without the compromise to suit

better handling. I must mention

also the feel through the steering

wheel, there is good self-centering

return and the promise of solid

feedback from the fuel-saving Yokohama

tyres (185/60 x 16in).

Further to the fuel usage performance

I mentioned earlier, the Jazz

hybrid’s four-cylinder engine also

has the goods in term of overall

ability. Honda rates the 1497cc unit

at 72kW and 131Nm, both outputs

realised mid-way through the rev

band, and if you add in an extra

80kW and 253Nm from the hybrid

system, there is strength well in

keeping with the Jazz’s purpose.

For the record, an acceleration

time of 8.5sec to make 100km/h

from a standstill is possible along

with a highway overtake time of

5.8sec to make 120 from 80km/h.

Several of my acquaintances own

a Jazz, or Fit, and one of them even

has an old Fit hybrid that is still

giving good service. That person

is always boasting about fuel usage

and the associated low running

costs.

I’ve tried to convince him that

the new e:HEV Jazz is an obvious

step forward when the time comes

to upgrade. I know that he will be

perfectly satisfied if that does come

to fruition.

Moncks Bay Masterpiece in the Making

1 Mulgans Track, Sumner

Section 943m²

Supremely positioned across from the idyllic waters of Moncks Bay, this

943sqm (approx.) site represents a once in a lifetime opportunity and provides

a magnificent setting for a modern abode.

Presented to the market for the first time in 55 years, this tightly held parcel

previously played host to a cherished family home constructed around 1912,

but the time has now come for another household to make its mark.

This Moncks Bay location is unrivalled for sun, shelter and scenery, serving up

intimate water views from its unobstructed position, ensuring the outlook is

yours to enjoy indefinitely. Superbly planted throughout with an established

platform and pathways and to help you visualize your dream.

This vacant and elevated section currently has council maintained access up

Mulgans Track or down from Kinsey Terrace. Potential to reconstruct another

garage on the roadside below. Situated near the local yacht club, beach and

coastal pathway, it’s also a short distance from Sumner Beach, where you can

unwind by the sea or indulge and the area’s numerous bars and eateries.

Demand in this area is extraordinarily high and supply remarkably low,

meaning this established section with excellent walk-on access will be snapped

up incredibly quickly. Selling “as is, where is”.

Contact Paula or Simon for further information.

Auction: Thursday 30 September at 12pm, on site (unless sold prior)

Family Favourite by the Beach

69 Nayland Street, Sumner

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

Offering an enviable coastal lifestyle, this three-bedroom residence promotes

everyday ease and is positioned to please, being only a block off the beach in

Sumner’s sought-after Golden Triangle. Designed by the departing vendors,

this two-level property has served admirably as a family home for over 20 years,

featuring living and accommodation options across both floors, ensuring it’s well

suited to any number of circumstances.

Comprising three bedrooms and three tiled bathrooms, two of each are located on

the top floor, including the master with its ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. A versatile

third living zone also occupies the top floor, flowing out to a sun-filled balcony

where you can admire valley views, the Sumner hillside and glimpses of the ocean.

The third bedroom and bathroom are situated downstairs along with a well-sized

study that could be converted into a fourth bedroom should you require.

The freshly carpeted layout also contains various ground floor entertaining zones,

including an expansive open-plan lounge and dining area, which naturally runs off

the kitchen, while a formal living space provides a private alternative for quieter

occasions. Hardwood decking provides you with a superb setting for outdoor living,

embracing both sun and shelter amid the established garden with its impressive

ginkgo tree. Enjoying effortless access on the Sumner flat, this property offers no

shortage of parking space, with an excellent off-street area complemented by a

newly carpeted triple car garage with internal access.

Gas heating and cooking connections, double glazing, a heat pump, gas fire, night

store and partial under-tile heating heighten comfort and practicality, the latter of

which is further amplified by ample storage options, a separate laundry, an alarm

and a central vacuum system. With the village and beach also on your doorstep, this

property doesn’t fail to impress. Contact us for more information.

Auction: Saturday 2 October at 11.30am, on site (unless sold prior)

Renovated Haven in a Prime Location

59 Wakatu Avenue, Redcliffs

4 bedrooms, 1 living, 2 bathrooms, 1 carport, 2 off street parks

Boasting a sought-after address in ever-desirable Moncks Bay, Redcliffs this

tastefully refurbished home demonstrates undeniable flexibility, striking the

perfect balance between classic character and contemporary convenience.

The approx. 183sqm floor plan covers a single level and is supremely versatile,

ensuring it can accommodate any number of living arrangements. This

refreshed family home could be utilised in its current configuration with four

bedrooms and a single lounge, or otherwise, it can become a three-bedroom

residence with two living areas, which will suit smaller households who have

an appreciation for entertaining. Better yet, there is a separate studio with full

cooking facilities and a bathroom, and although this space is unconsented, it’s

incredibly well equipped for teens, guests or those working from home.

This charming home has undergone numerous improvements over the past

few years, as well as upgraded flooring and carpets. However, the most recent

enhancements come in the form of interior paintwork and a new master ensuite

which deliver comfort and convenience from the outset. There is still room to

further add your mark. The layout also displays functionality, featuring a shared

kitchen and dining zone that’s naturally accompanied by the lounge. Indooroutdoor

flow has been considered, with the master bedroom stretching out to

the spacious deck, which flows beyond to the well-proportioned garden.

There is a log burner, a heat pump and partial double glazing for year-round

contentment, while a carport and wide driveway offer varied parking options

for multiple vehicles. Enjoying the advantage of privacy and picturesque valley

views, this sun-soaked property is ideally suited to families, being a stroll from

Barnett Park, Moncks Bay and the Coastal Pathway, while the amenities in

Redcliffs and Sumner are also a short drive away. Don’t delay; arrange a viewing

today. This is for definite sale.

Auction: Saturday 2 October at 1pm, on site (unless sold prior)
