This initiative is being funded from the Government’s Covid-19 Outbreak Management Funds grant as part of Herefordshire Council’s Covid-19 recovery plan, supporting economic recovery and improving wellbeing in Herefordshire.

Amy Pitt, Assistant Director -Talk Communities Programme at Herefordshire Council said, “Young people have been rather heroic in the last 18 months, staying away from each other and the things they love to protect themselves and vulnerable people around them. But it’s becoming clear the impact the pandemic and the disruption it caused has had on their mental and physical health. Now they’re moving back into the new normal way of studying, training or working, there is still a lot of pressure,” says Amy. “Exercising with others is one of the best ways to help relieve that. We are delighted to work with local social enterprise and registered charity Halo Leisure to fund this wonderful initiative that is all about getting more young people more active more often.”

“Halo provides a Covid-secure space (approved by UKActive) where young people can work out or wind down together” said Alex Haines, Halo Partnership Manager.

“Sign up before 31st December 2021 to get a full academic year (until 31st August 2022) worth of free access to all Halo facilities across the County. You can choose how you move - in the gym, in the pool, at group exercise classes, in the toning suite or on the golf course.”
