The Osprey Leisure Centre on Portland is celebrating its 10 year anniversary wtih Wessex FM today.

We will be there between 10am and 12 pm and giving you the chance to win an annual membership to the leisure centre.

There will be fireworks at 8pm, along with live bands and a hog roast.

General manager Nigel Williams said the annual event will be bigger and better tahn ever this year.

"We'll have indoor cricket, kirate, power hoop, archery, and in the pool snorkling and water polo, which will be very exciting. In the evening we'll have a barbque, pizza van and fireworkds. We're hoping for good weather for the fireworks grand finale."

Nigel said events like these are fun for the public to enjoy but also benefit the leisure centre in the longrun: "When we first started ten years ago we took over with a small budget, which paridly dwindled. So we knew we had to get money in and increase the footfall of the centre and made lots of energy saving schemes work for us. With the income we get from our customers we plough that back into the centre for further improvements."
