Stroke Awareness Day
 

Press Release;   Saturday 5th April 

Blood Pressure testing events to set new records

The Stroke Association and Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland are aiming to host over 1000 free blood pressure testing events testing over 50,000 people in 2014. On Saturday 5th April the Rotary Club of Woodhall Spa will be holding a Blood Pressure testing event next to the Woodhall Spa police station on the Broadway between 9.30am and 3pm

High blood pressure is the biggest risk factor for stroke. Know your blood pressure day on 5th April aims to raise awareness about the link between high blood pressure and stroke. Visitors to the event will be provided with information and advice on simple steps to keep their blood pressure under control.

Joe Korner, Director of External Affairs at the Stroke Association said “High blood pressure does not present any symptons and many people have no idea their health may be at risk. We estimate up to half of strokes could be prevented if people took steps to control it through diet, exercise or medication. Having your blood pressure tested is a simple  and straightforward way to find out more about reducing your risk of having a stroke.

John Curtis of the Rotary Club of Woodhall Spa said “The Know Your Blood Pressure campaign has been supported by Rotary for over a decade. The ideal blood pressure is 120/80 but we know a significant number of people have readings above that and a quarter have dangerously high blood pressure with readings over 140/90. Rotary events took nearly 43,000 blood pressure readings last year and nearly 7,000 people were advised to take action. These events can play a big role in reducing strokes across the country.

Horncastle Timebank
 
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!

Look at what it's all about on our website: www.horncastletimebank.org.uk
 

Woodland Workout Group
Launch of a new Woodland Workout group at Ostler's Plantation on 9th April 2014.

This is a chance for locals to have an input into their local woods, and help us to make it a better place for them! Ostler's Plantation is a wood with such forestry potential. It also is an important site for many species such as natter’s bats, adders, and bog myrtle. Ostler’s Plantation has historic significance too, as an airfield during the second world war and future tasks may involve helping us uncover and restore some of the features from this time.

Through volunteering in Woodland Workout sessions you will take part in variety of tasks including fence removal, heathland management and ditching. You will gain new skills including learning how to use a variety of tools safely including pruning saws, loppers, bow saws, and grass hooks.

Volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace and take rests when needed, there will be a well earned tea break in the middle of the session giving volunteers a chance to relax and chat.

Sessions will run 10am to 1pm on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month.

For anyone interested, please contact Jenny on 07747006452 or jenny.boatwright@forestry.gsi.gov.uk

Woodhall Wheelers
 

Welcome to the Woodhall Wheelers social cycling club.

The ‘Woodhall Wheelers’ …born out of four friends Brian, David, Dean and Trevor (Tubby) who after several years of riding together and watching professional races decided to form a social cycling club.

The club is based in the delightful village of Woodhall Spa, on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, giving us a choice of many different types of rides. A six mile ride to Horncastle takes us to the edge of the Wolds where many 15% climbs can be encountered; there are also great choices of flat routes plus several cycle tracks around the area.

Rather than try to start as a full blown club from scratch (with all the financial implications) the club and rides are run through the www.goskyride.com group section. You will need to sign up and register first (all free) and then you will have access to the group section where you will fine WoodhallWheelers, you then have to click the request to join.

This will give us an idea as to the demand there is likely to be and if it’s good enough we can look at holding an open meeting later in the year when we can perhaps look into going further down the full club road.

We welcome all standards of riders be it novice or experienced. Our aim is to organise one or two social cycle rides per month of varying lengths and terrain.

If you wish to join us, simply sign up to Sky Ride to agree terms and conditions, you ride entirely at your own risk, check the Ride Diary where you can view all our forthcoming rides.

Vitality
 

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.
