Staff at Dorchester Sports centre have been honoured as one of the best performing leisure centres in the West Country.

Run by 1610 - they picked up the award for Centre of the Year at the company's annual gongs.

It was presented by 1610 CEO Tim Nightingale who praised the Dorchester team for their  "Incredible focus and determination to overcome some operating difficulties at the centre to make it one of 1610's most successful centres in terms of growth and increase in membership and the services it provides. It has one of the busiest exercise programmes in 1610 with almost 70 classes a week and just under a thousand children signed up to its swimming programme. It hosts many large events and swimming galas and the centre team has managed to hit all their financial targets for 14/15.  The award is well deserved as the staff are a brilliant inspiration for the rest of 1610 to follow."
