Would you like your child to benefit from swimming lessons taught in Welsh? We host Monday afternoon sessions from 4pm in Maesteg Swimming Pool (catering for Splash levels 1 and 2 through to Stage 2).

Last month we celebrated the outstanding work of our hard working staff at our second Staff Awards evening.  Teams from Halo’s 22 sites based across Herefordshire, Bridgend County, Shropshire and Highworth came together to recognise the contribution the staff make to the success of the organisation and their contribution to Halo’s mission of “Creating Healthier Communities”.

Our new family-friendly changing facilities at Bridgnorth Endowed Leisure Centre are open! Thank you for your patience during the final phase of our £400k centre makeover, and thanks to Sport England for their £150k grant and the wonderful Bridgnorth Endowed School. We are so proud to be your partners in the town, helping people get more active more often.

On the 15th & 16th of October there will be extensive recovery work taking place on the golf course greens at Hereford Leisure Centre to prepare them ready for Spring 2018. The golf course will still be open as usual so you can still come along to play your round of golf!  

 We are also happy to announce that planning permission for the borehole to supply our sprinkler system for the greens has been granted.

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.

If you’re not sure you want to take on a monthly membership (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.

...and are delighted to add into the Halo membership benefit mix a free veterinary consultation with the new Vets4Pets, the practice now happily installed for the health of Herefordshire’s pets at Pets at Home in Hereford in the Brook Retail Park on Commercial Road.

Easy to think it’s children who we need to teach, but tens of thousands of adults in the UK can’t swim. We’re changing that, one lovely swimmer at a time.

Here’s what Shirley had to say after her course at our centre in Ross.
