FREE Community Thank You Events in Herefordshire!

25 May 2022

Family swimming

Talk Community, in partnership with HALO Leisure, are delighted to announce free Community Thank You Events which will be taking place across Herefordshire, from June through to September.

We wanted to say a really big thank you to all communities across the county, for coming together and pulling through a really difficult time during the past couple of years. To show our appreciation, we are offering everyone the opportunity to get out and active, and access services to help support their health and wellbeing.

The events will be offering free fitness activities such as swimming, tennis, gym access, group exercise classes and badminton. There's fun for all ages and you'll also have access to a few extras to keep the kids entertained (and the big ones).

Come along and meet local community services and groups to find out more about supporting your health and wellbeing, or just to find out what's going on in your local area!

There's no booking required, all you need to do is attend. What’s on offer is different at each centre and will be on a first come first served basis.

The events will be held at HALO sites across market towns in the county.
