Hello, we're Halo!

Halo is a registered charity and social enterprise running 22 sport and leisure centres throughout Herefordshire, Bridgend County Borough, Shropshire,Swindon and Gloucestershire on behalf of the local authorities. We are a registered charity and 'not for profit' organisation, with no shareholders which means the money we make is ploughed back into the facilities where we largely reinvest this into Halo services.

This means users are helping to sustain leisure activities for everyone across the county to enjoy – from pre and post-natal exercise classes, babies in the ‘Swim-A-Song’ sessions, specialist exercise classes for people with MS, to toddlers at Gym Tots and to 55+ group exercise classes.
