If you have an existing Leisure Card it remains valid at Broome Manor and Highworth. Next time you visit we will replace it for FREE with a Twigmarket Leisure Card ( which in future will be known as a Privilege Card ) and you will enjoy the same discounted prices and terms as your existing Leisure Card.
