MORE than 90 per cent of our website readers believe smoking should be banned in leisure centres. Nine per cent would oppose the ban.
The polled followed an article in last week's Hunts Post about smoking being allowed inside the cafeteria of St Neots Leisure Centre.
The centre and four others managed by Huntingdonshire District Council, have a policy to allow smoking in the cafe and bar area after 5.30pm on weekdays.
