Alwyn and Hilda Celebrate 65 Years of Marriage

Recently one of our Life Members, Alwyn Manley and his wife Hilda, celebrated 65 years of marriage. A small celebration was held on the day. Although Alwyn is no longer able to swim, he still takes a keen interest in our Club and all things swimming. Jan Fulton (pictured in the middle), visits Selwyn Village for 'swimming' speak and visited on the day of the anniversary with a small present for them.

At their May 2018 meet Roskill Masters will honour Alwyn's contribution to our club, and NZ Masters, with the presentation of The Alwyn Manly medal to the winners of the 100 metres Breaststroke (Male and Female) in the 40-44 year age group. This specially struck medal will be presented to competitors in the age group and specified race at the May meet for the next 20 years.

Congratulations Alwyn and Hilda, we wish you many more happy years together.
