ROYSTON Leisure Centre has been declared fighting fit following an inspection.

The centre was one of three sites in North Hertfordshire to be given the thumbs up by Quest, a national organisation which measures standards and improvements in sports facilities across the country.

It has now achieved "highly commended" status, as have Hitchin Swimming Centre and North Herts Leisure Centre.

Cllr Ian Knighton, North Herts District Council's portfolio holder for leisure, said: "For all three of our main leisure sites to be recognised as highly commended is an excellent achievement. We would like to congratulate the managers and staff at each centre who have worked so hard to achieve these standards.

"This allows North Hertfordshire District Council to provide high quality swimming pools and sports facilities to all our residents within a short journey time."

In recent months the leisure centre has been involved in a number of special promotions.

They were part of a scheme which saw 11,000 free swimming tickets issued, and during 2007 helped raise more than £11,000 for charities including the Garden House Hospice in Letchworth.
