Ledbury’s current £2.3 million leisure centre makeover is underway. The Halo team are now upgrading and extending the gym and exercise studio, giving the reception and changing facilities a makeover and building a new sauna and steam room. Remember...
While they’re at it you can work out at Halo’s temporary fitness hub (all the Halo kit will be on site) at the Youth Centre on Bye Street (just behind the pool), which will be offering a gym and group exercise classes, plus all the ongoing advice and support you need from Halo’s fitness team for a special membership price.
The grand reopening of your centre is scheduled for Easter next year. Follow the progress on facebook where you can see loads of photos of the work as it takes place.
The social enterprise and registered charity has already spent some £7.5 million transforming their facilities in Bromyard, Hereford, Leominster and Ross but their CEO, Scott Rolfe, says the facilities at Ledbury swimming pool and the thousands of local people who use it have long been a priority for the leisure group.
We are investing £2.3m into an exciting development of Ledbury Swimming Pool:
- New fitness suite:
- twice the size of existing gym
- double the current number of pieces of equipment
- New fitness studio - supporting personal training and an enhanced group exercise class timetable
- New sauna, steam room and feature shower
- Fresh new family friendly changing facilities
- New reception area
The building work which includes an extension that started in June 2016 and will be completed by April 2017.
Temporary closure of facilities
“The scale of the refurbishment and the need to have the best quality build in the shortest time frame makes it financially and practically impossible for the centre to remain open during the project.” said Scott Rolfe, Halo Chief Executive. “The decision of a short term closure (June 2016-April 2017) has not been taken lightly and all alternatives have been fully explored. Although the swimming pool will close we are relocating the gym to the youth club next to the pool. It will be bigger and have even more equipment and we will also run our group exercise classes from there too.”
Halo is offering Gym and Group Exercise Class membership at the special price of £19.95 a month for the duration of the £2.3 million refurbishment (the grand reopening is scheduled for April next).
