Photo: PHOTOSPORT.CO.NZ By CARALISE MOORE A number of sporting celebrities helped open the Northern Arena swimming complex in Silverdale. The January 22 cere- mony was fantastic, Northern Arena's head of swimming and former Olympian Dean Kent says. Prime Minister John Key unveiled a plaque and chatted with swimmers and staff. We couldn't let any- one know he was coming for security reasons, but it was a pleasure to have him there,'' Mr Kent says. While the weather put a few people off, Mr Kent says they had a good turnout. Hibiscus Coast Swim Club and local surf life saving clubs displayed their training sessions in the pools. A highlight of the opening was a seven- team relay event. I put the word out to all my mates from swim- ming, both current and former top swimmers, and the guys really came through for me,'' Mr Kent says. We had seven relay teams of eight swimmers each. Each team had two New Zealand representative swimmers, two swim club members, two surf club swimmers, and two random kids who had come in and booked in to our lessons.'' Mr Kent says some of the children selected were so excited about it their families had to delay planned holidays. National swimmers included Steven Fer- guson, Cameron Gibson, Moss Burmester, Corney Swanepoel and Penelope Marshall. Mr Key start- ed the relay. We also had group fit- ness classes on all day with free trials,'' Mr Kent says. Visit www.northern arena.co.nz for more information.

It feels very good to still be mar- ried after all these years, especially when you strike a woman like mine,'' the 88-year-old Orewa resi- dent says. Mr Majstrovic and his wife Mar- garet celebrated their 65th anniver- sary on January 1, with close friends and relations in a party thrown for them by their four daughters.
