She said her daughter had been involved in gymnastics for the past three years and she trains four times a week. Her next focus will be an Australian gymnastics tournament in November.

That’s the directive from the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board, which is pushing for early demolition of the former Sockburn Service Centre and VTNZ testing centre buildings. Chairman Mike Mora said the board was happy with the report presented by city council staff last week outlining the proposed demolition, but would push for an earlier start than the planned 2022 time frame. “Get it knocked down and get the site tidied up so it’s a bit easier to look at. It’s an eyesore and I think people have had enough of it,” Mr Mora said. Board members were happy to focus solely on the removal of the service centre if it sped up the process. “But if we can get [both buildings] down earlier than 2022, we’d be really pleased.” In spite of earlier concerns, the decision was good news for the Christchurch Slot Car Club which had been on site for more than 20 years. •Turn to page 4 9113487AC 9113487AE FILL UP FOR LESS WITH YOUR GOLD CARD. 15 • Full mechanical services • Petrol & Diesel Incorporating HALSWELL NOW OPEN IN HORNBY WOF ONLY $29 FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY *Terms and Conditions apply.
