£3million pound redevelopment begins...

 

It's all happening at Hereford Leisure Centre - the builders are onsite this week working on a multi million pound redevelopment.  It is business as usual with all activities running as normal. The main entrance will however be closed, the temporary one will be through the Golf Shop (to the far right of the existing entrance).

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.

About time - it has always been a cheap and nasty shed, a fugly design and build product of the former Hereford City Council. There was a design and build competition, with a brief - I was part of one of the teams working on a submission. We stuck rigidly to the brief, which called for brick walls and a slate roof. We didn't win - look what we got - brief ignored, but all the councillors could see was pound notes, as they were then. The same thing happened with the equally dismal and thankfully demolished Garrick House.

I too have always felt that this was a ugly building, lets hope it looks a lot better when the refurbishment is complete.
