There are exciting plans afoot for Highley’s Severn Centre thanks to a new partnership we have with the community hub.

We currently operates 21 leisure centres in the heart of local communities in England and Wales and prides ourselves on being much more than just a gym or local swimming pool. We have invested millions in our facilities in recent years in a bid to ensure a combination of the finest sport and fitness opportunities with family services (like school holiday activities and children’s coaching lessons) with professional support and care for those who, traditionally, find physical activity challenging - including, for example those wanting to get fit as they recover from ill health, quit smoking or cope with mental health problems.

Halo have, for some years, supported the wonderful Severn Centre in Highley, working with the team at the Centre and promoting their fabulous community hub and outdoor pool. We’re delighted to announce we’ll be taking on management of the Centre for the future and supporting their team with their ambitious plans for growth. Watch this space!

How far can you run, walk, row or cycling in a month during your gym sessions in October at Lady Hawkins Community Leisure Centre? Give yourself a challenge and see how far in miles or kilometers you can go on any piece of kit in the gym during the month.  

 You can use the treadmill, cross-trainer, bike, rowing machine or even a take part in one of our Indoor Cycling class. After each session you just need to log down how far you have traveled. At the end of the month we will total them up to see how far you have gone during October.

From 4th September 2017 our swim school in Bridgend County Borough will change from the ASA Learn to Swim ‭framework to the Swim Wales ‘Learn to Swim Wales’ syllabus.

We’re delighted so many of you have taken up our 3 for 2 offer this summer, and we love hearing how the holidays have introduced you to a whole range of new ways to get and stay fit. If you’re not sure you want to take on a monthly membership moving forward (still working out around just £1 a day) then we have a special 20-activity pass you can buy for just £50 up front payment.

Halo Leisure is taking on its 21st centre after being invited to team up with the not-for-profit housing association Fortis Living to look after their gym and health spa facilities at The Rose Garden retirement village in Hereford, a complex serving 91 apartments in the city.

The Directors of the Severn Centre trust are committed to ensuring that the quality of services and facilities at The Severn Centre is in keeping with what the local community require.

The Severn Centre is a registered charity and, in the interests of social welfare, the Aim of The Centre is to improve the conditions of life for people of the area, enabling them to benefit (without distinction of political, religious or other opinions) from the provision and maintenance of a community centre for local use, for a wide variety of activities, including meetings, lectures and classes, and other forms of recreation and leisure-time occupation. This also extends to a recreation ground and a swimming pool for use by the local community.

Tens of thousands of adults in this country can’t swim, or don’t feel confident in water. We want to change that, starting right here in Highworth.

 Our group lessons are designed for adults who want to learn from scratch so they can benefit from this brilliant way to stay fit and healthy (beginners and non-swimmers join us at 6-6.30pm on Wednesday) - or for those who simply want to improve their confidence and swimming skills so they can keep up with their kids in water (your session starts at 6.30pm each Wednesday)!

New Zumba classes at Clehonger Village Hall on Tuesday’s at 11.45am-12.30pm. Zumba is a fusing hypnotic latin rhythms and easy to follow moves. Routines feature interval training sessions where fast and slow rhythms with resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt you while burning fat.

Friday 23rd June, Halo Leisure and Herefordshire Council and other guests celebrated the official opening of the refurbished Ledbury Swimming Pool, and the £2.4m spend which has created a fabulous facility to benefit everyone in the area.

The Halo Swimming Pool - now complete with new sauna and steam room, new workout studio ( for personal training and a brand new and enhanced group exercise timetable), a gym with double the number of training stations and upgraded family friendly changing facilities and reception - has enjoyed a year-long makeover.
