Centre Parcs female staff member dies after being found unconscious at UK resort

A female member of staff has died in a “tragic accident” at a Centre Parcs resort.

The woman was found “unconscious” in Woburn Forest, Bedfordshire, on September 22. Police say they are investigating a report of a collision between a vehicle and a member of staff.

East of England Ambulance Service said they were called to reports of an “unconscious person” on Fordfield Road, in Millbrook at 12.17pm. The team sent an air ambulance and the woman was rushed to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

Centre Parcs said: “We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of one of our team at Woburn Forest, our thoughts are with her family, friends and her colleagues at this time.”

The woman’s death is the second at the site in just over a year, after a housekeeper was found dead in a chalet, in May 2022.

In a statement released following the recent fatality, the holiday resort added: “We are in contact with her family, and we are offering support to them and any of our colleagues at Woburn Forest who have been affected. Center Parcs is working closely with all the relevant authorities following this incident.”

Detective Sergeant Craig Wheeler, from the Bedfordshire Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We are investigating a reported collision between a vehicle and a member of staff at Center Parcs Woburn Forest on Friday.”

He added: “The member of staff was taken to hospital for treatment but sadly died later that day. Our thoughts remain with her family.”

The Sun reported that the staff member’s death was as a result of a “tragic accident”.

Centre Parcs in Woburn is the group’s newest resort and is one of the more modern villages.

The holiday resort company was founded in the Netherlands in 1968 and has six sites across the UK and Ireland.

The others are Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire, Whinfell Forest in Cumbria’s Lake District, Longleat Forest in Wiltshire and Elveden Forest in Suffolk.

There is also a Center Parcs resort near Ballymahon in Ireland, which opened in 2019.
