Siblings a triple threat at nationals • By Jacob Page THREE BURNSIDE siblings are putting the final touches on their artistic gymnastics routines ahead of the national champs tomorrow. Christchurch School of Gymnastics members Luke, 16, and twins Cole and Sian Stevens, 14, will compete against the country’s best at the New Zealand championships in Tauranga which start tomorrow. The siblings have been competing in gymnastics for almost nine years. The trio said their QE II Park training base was like a second home. “We probably spend as much time there as we do at home,” Luke said. “This is where our friends are and it’s where we have always had fun,” Cole said. Luke and Cole train for 19 hours a week and Sian trains up to 30 hours a week. Due to Sian’s heavy training commitments, she attends Prosilio for 3.5 hours a day, which is part of the Ao Tawhiti School. It allows her to study around her training schedule. Luke and Cole attend Burnside High School. •Turn to page 7 Board members clash over breach of confidence • By Ashleigh Monk PAPANUI-INNES Community Board members have clashed over a breach of confidence. Member John Stringer told Nor’West News that he called a private meeting last week to address the board over his concerns about the Main North Rd bus priority proposal. He said the contents of the meeting were confidential. However, community board chairwoman Ali Jones revealed to Nor’West News what the meeting was about. Ms Jones said because Mr Stringer was new to local politics, he may struggle to understand how the process works, which left Mr Stringer “disappointed”. The community board has recommended the installation of bus lanes along parts of Main North Rd from Harewood Rd to Grassmere St, with an amendment to exclude a stretch from Harewood Rd to Winston Ave. The proposal, which will be presented to the city council later this month, would remove some on-street parking along Main North Rd, and make northward bus times faster. •Turn to page 7 Driving Miss Daisy Harewood Driving Miss Daisy is a friendly and reliable companion driving service.
