The new Northside Community Civic Centre held its inaugural public skating session on Wednesday.

People in Cape Breton's North Sydney area spent 12 years raising money to replace their old arena.

The community-owned facility has an NHL-sized rink, more than 1,000 seats, a walking track and multipurpose rooms.

The CBC's Gary Mansfield was there for the first public skate.
