Children’s Bereavement Centre

We are so proud to be working to raise funds for Children’s Bereavement Centre in Newark, our Charity of the Year.

Sadly every 22 minutes in the UK a child is bereaved of a parent. Children’s Bereavement Centre is there to offer support to these children at one of the most traumatic times in their lives. Along with bereavement counselling support, Children’s Bereavement Centre provides play therapy, filial therapy, peer support groups, workshops and activities – just a snapshot of the amazing work done by this charity. Last year alone, Children’s Bereavement Centre supported 781 local children and families, and to continue this work need the help and generosity of the general public and local businesses throughout Newark.
And with this in mind, Eden has pledged our support through sponsorship, donation and fundraising over the next 12 months. We’ll keep you posted on activities and progress.

“We are delighted to be working with Eden Hall as their chosen charity partner for the coming year.
As a local charity, the support we receive from our corporate partners is vital to ensure we can
continue to support local children and their families and we are very excited to be working with
such a prestigious brand as Eden Hall whose ethos of wellbeing and relaxation is a great fit for us”
Rachel Wilson – Fundraising Manager, Children’s Bereavement Centre

A Message from our CEO

The health and wellbeing of our guests, members and employees is and always has been, at the heart of our business. As a result of the Prime Minister’s announcement on 20th March, it with deep sadness that we have taken the decision to close Eden Hall and Hoar Cross Hall until further notice. Though we genuinely hope to be welcoming you back sooner, rather than later we will closely monitor government updates to ensure we are keeping our team members, customers and members safe.

In these unprecedented times, we have been genuinely touched by the understanding and support shown by our guests, members and staff alike. We thank you for your words and acts of kindness that have given much needed hope and positivity throughout these difficult weeks. Our main priority has always been our loyal customers, especially since temporarily closing the doors of our beautiful venues, putting your experience with us on hold.

If you have an existing booking with us, please don’t worry, we’ll be in touch to help as soon as possible.
If you have one of our gift cards with an expiry date before 30th June 2020, you do not need to do anything, we have automatically extended these until 31st December 2020.

We are also focusing on the wellbeing of our valuable team members, who are currently unable to work due to recent government restrictions. Our employees are a key focus for us at this time, as we hope you understand. Consequently, we are doing all we can to ensure a swift return and to reassure and stabilise their situation in the meantime.

For those of you who may still need to contact us, we have put in place a small dedicated team to respond to all enquiries. Please bear with us if our response isn’t as speedy as normal, we really are trying our best and will contact you as soon as we are able to.

But for now, on behalf of all of us at Barons Eden, I would like to wish you and your family the best health and to stay safe.
