In attendance was Lord-Lieutenant of Hertforshire, Robert Voss along with councillors from North Herts District Council and representatives from Stevenage Leisure Limited, who came together to enjoy the improvements and take a tour of the new centre.

The redevelopment includes a new learner pool, refurbished wet changing areas, a new fitness studio and a modernised café.

The car park has also been extended by 92 spaces.

Councillor Jane Gray, NHDC’s executive member for leisure, said: “We are thrilled to mark the redevelopment of the North Herts Leisure Centre with this official ceremony and we hope users of the centre are as happy with the improved facilities on offer as we are.

“For anyone who hasn’t yet seen the transformation, please drop by and experience the newly refurbished leisure centre and all it has to offer.”

Councillor Jane Gray also made a speech at the opening along with Councillor Alan Millard and SLL managing director, Ian Morton.

Plans for the development were approved back in June 2015 – with construction starting the following year – with the aim of extending the life span of the centre.

Since the completion of the updated facility, staff have been able to increase the amount of swimming and fitness classes per week,

Mr Morton added: “We are delighted to have worked with NHDC on completing this exciting new project which will deliver even better facilities for the local community.”
