THE £3million transformation of Hereford Leisure has well and truly begun with demolition work starting this week on the sport centre’s reception and cafe areas.

Activities are running as normal at the Holmer Road site, with a temporary entrance set up through the golf shop, to the right of the main entrance.

The revamped facility will eventually include a regional gymnastics centre, as well a refurbished cafe, changing area and a new soft play area for kids.

It is part of a county-wide project to improve Halo facilities over the next two years that will see around £9million invested in Herefordshire sport and leisure.
