The Founding of Woodhall Spa - Myth and Reality

On the 1st of March 2015 Edward Mayor held a book launch and signing event in Woodhall Spa Manor. The book is entitled ' the Founding of Woodhall Spa - Myth and Reality'.

Cottage Museum
Woodhall Spa Past and Present - Houses and Homes

The Cottage Museum has re-opened for the 2015 season with a new temporary exhibition called ‘Past and Present – Houses and Homes’. The display draws on a selection of wonderfully evocative images of Victorian and Edwardian houses and homes in the village, and compares them with how the same buildings look today.

The Cottage Museum has an extensive collection of photographs, many of which were taken by John Wield who lived in the bungalow for many years. The images are a valuable record and provide a wealth of information about the people who lived and worked in the locality. The images include scenes of buildings, people and everyday activities that took place in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is a rich resource and helps bring to life what it would have been like to live in Woodhall Spa and the vicinity in times gone by.

This exciting new exhibition includes a variety of images and you may recognise a much loved scene or house. If you see an image in the display which you would like, there is the welcome opportunity to purchase a copy, either as a digital image or a hard copy.

Alongside the display of images is a collection of everyday nineteenth and twentieth century household objects. Come along and see how many you can identify and if you know what they were all used for, some may bring back happy memories of times gone by!!!

The Past and Present- Houses and Homes’ exhibition runs until the 7th June and is open every day from 10.30am-4.00pm. Normal museum admission charges apply.

We look forward to welcoming you.

The current Activity Programme is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the Museum redevelopment project. If you have any queries about events or activities, please contact the Tourist Information Office located in the Museum 01526 353775 or the Museum Office 01526 353456

Horncastle Timebank now has members in Woodhall Spa and we are looking to have many more. The Timebank deals with an alternative currency: time, rather than money. For every hour you spend helping someone, you are entitled to an hour of help in return. It's about people helping people and you can use your everyday skills to help and benefit others. Help can be in many forms - performing practical tasks, befriending someone, running errands or even ironing or gardening!

Are you interested in protecting and conserving Woodhall Spa’s fascinating Edwardian and wartime heritage?

Would you like to join the Heritage Group, who work positively with the parish and district councils to keep the unique atmosphere of our Village, so it remains attractive for us living here as well as our visitors?

We meet on the second Monday of the month in the evening.

Contact Sue Stennett: 01526 352703


A new group is setting up in Woodhall Spa for the over 60’s, delivering exercise with physio based movement called Vitality. The group will meet Thursdays from 1.30pm – 2.30pm at the Roman Catholic Church Hall in Woodhall Spa.

Vitality is a not for profit Lincolnshire project delivering fun, safe and effective specially designed exercise classes which are set to music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. We take these classes all across the County in a range of venues – currently about 60 classes a week and East Lindsey District Council have asked us to set up a new group in Woodhall Spa which we are delighted to do. The classes are usually really popular, offering 45 minutes of exercise followed by tea and coffee each week. We want to help the over 60’s look after what they’ve got, so we work on improving joints and muscle stiffness, posture, circulation and breathing. We’ll be working out gently to disco, rock ‘n’ roll, salsa and Country music and our aim is to ‘revitalise’ those that come along and join in!

The cost of the classes are subsidised by NHS Lincolnshire, and the first session on the 13th October will be free – so people can come along and see what we do.

The classes run 48 weeks of the year, so this will be a permanent new group in Woodhall Spa, running Thursdays 1.30-2.30pm at the Roman Catholic Church Hall. First session on the 13th October 2011 will be free.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Louise Thompson should you require any further information.

National Non-emergency number

A new national non-emergency number 101 is being rolled out across the country as part of a Home Office initiative. The number is now live in Lincolnshire.

101 will work in the same way as 0300 but for more information on the new number please visit www.police.uk/101 <http://www.police.uk/101>

101 is the number to call when you want to contact your local police - when it’s less urgent than a 999 call. 101 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You should call 101 to report less urgent crime and disorder or to speak to your local officers.

For example, you should call 101 if:

    • your car has been stolen
    • your property has been damaged
    • you suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood

Or to:

    • report a minor traffic collision
    • give the police information about crime in your area
    • speak to the police about a general enquiry

101 is being introduced as part of the government's wider work to improve access to the police, ease pressure on 999, and help to efficiently and effectively tackle crime and disorder.

You should continue to call 999 when it is an emergency, such as when a crime is in progress, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.

Calls to 101 (from both landlines and mobile networks) cost 15 pence per call, no matter what time of day you call, or how long you are on the phone.

Everyone calling the police for non-emergency matters will now know exactly how much a call will cost them, and can be assured of equal access whether they are on a pay-as-you-go mobile or a home landline.

Calls to 101 are answered by police call handlers in the control room of the local police force. This ensures that staff with local knowledge can answer and deal with the calls and respond appropriately.
You will not be put through to a large national call centre.

When you call 101, the system will determine your location and connect you to the police force covering that area. You will hear a recorded message announcing the police force you are being connected to. If you are on a boundary between two or more forces, the recorded message will give you a choice of which force to be connected to.

Thank you for your continued support.
