As the flood waters recede and our team cleans the Eden site ready for reopening on Wednesday, it has become increasingly clear that our Ice Rink won’t be ready for action this week. Managing Director Gaynor Coley said: “Sadly the damage to the Ice Rink is more severe than we first thought so at this [...]
