Herefordshire centre reopens after £2.4m revamp

Charitable social enterprise Halo Leisure and Herefordshire Council have reopened a leisure facility in Ledbury after a £2.4m (US$3.1m, €2.7m) refurbishment project, which includes a new workout studio and upgraded gym.

Ledbury Swimming Pool's 800 members can now benefit from a 262sq m (2,820sq ft) gym that offers 40 stations, as well as a free weights, conditioning and stretching area. The 117sq m (1,259sq ft) studio will provide personal training and group exercise classes.

The year-long makeover has also seen cash spent on adding a sauna and steam room, and upgrading changing facilities and the reception.

Scott Rolfe, Halo’s chief executive, said: “We believe everybody, no matter their age, income or ability has the right to get fit and healthy in fine facilities. That’s what motivates our investment. We are creating centres communities love to use. But these facilities reflect, in turn, the growing service we offer and the vision we have for creating healthier communities.

“Our trained team of fitness professionals want to make sure we bring better health to communities via everything from swimming lessons and exercise classes to quit smoking schemes and personal programmes of support for people recovering from ill health. We’re thrilled with the refurb at Ledbury, but more excited about what we can achieve in the future as a result.”
