Coningsby, Tattershall & District History Society
New Methodist Church
The Society was established back in 1951, so this is our Diamond Anniversary year! Currently we have almost 40 members, so there is plenty of room for more.
We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm, from September to May, at the New Methodist Church in Silver Street, Coningsby and we also have two outings, in June and July. In December we hold our Christmas party and our annual dinner is in March. Our year commences with our AGM in September.
We are a friendly, informal group and our aim is to learn more about matters of – mostly, but not exclusively – local historical interest in a relaxed and social setting. To this end we have speakers on a wide range of subject.
New members are most welcome and we hope the current annual subscription of £6 will not break the bank. Should anyone wish to come along and sample what we are about, they are very welcome to visit, listen to our speaker for the evening and afterwards enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits and take the opportunity to chat with people, all for £1.50. The evening usually winds up at around at 9.30pm.
Anyone interested in joining us, or requiring any further information, should telephone the Secretary, Mike Fidell, on 01526 354954 or, of course, simply come along on the evening (please bear in mind that our annual dinner is scheduled for 9th March).
We look forward to seeing you and assure you of a warm welcome.
Horncastle Bridge Club
The Horncastle Bridge Club runs Duplicate Bridge sessions at the Golf Hotel, Woodhall Spa, on Wednesday evenings from 7pm. Bridge players who are seeking a friendly club to join are welcome to attend our club and play for free for a couple of evenings to gauge their level of interest.
Partnerships are preferable, but single players are also welcome and if necessary we will arrange a partner for you.
If you are a social bridge player, why not come along on a Wednesday evening, you may find you also enjoy playing club bridge in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Visitors are also welcome to attend and play as guests, but prior notification of visits would be appreciated

Woodhall Spa & District Ladies Circle
Be Fun, Be Yourself, Belong!
Woodhall Spa and District Ladies Circle is a modern, vibrant club for women!
With thousands of members aged 18 to 45 across Great Britain and Ireland, we want to offer the best opportunity for young women to connect with each other, have a great time, and give something back.
Members of Woodhall Spa and District Ladies Circle and other Ladies Circles in Lincolnshire got together to raise money for Parkinson’s UK by doing a sponsored ‘stay awake’ all night in a car showroom in Sleaford. Over £800 was raised
Circlers first join us because they want to make new friends, have fun, do things they’ve never done before, and put something back into the community at the same time.
They stay because what they find is a ready-made group of friends, from all walks of life, who allow them to just be themselves.
Whether you’re new to the area, or are just looking to broaden your social life, Ladies Circle is a perfect way of getting more out of life.

A University of the Third Age (U3A) held its inaugural Woodhall Spa meeting on Friday 27 November. 38 interested people signed up for Introductory membership (this will last until 31 March 2010 and costs £10). Full membership will be offered from 1 April 2010 for an annual fee of £20. This covers attendance at all monthly meetings, receipt of U3A News - the quarterly UK magazine - and attendance at as many group meetings as an individual wishes.
Monthly meetings deal first with general U3A business, followed by a tea/coffee break and a speaker. They are open to all members and visitors and will take place in the Coronation Hall between 2 and 4 pm on the first Thursday of each month from January 2010. Speakers have currently been arranged for January (John Richards on the Life and works of Edith Piaf), February (Eve Roach on First Contact) and March (Judy Theobald from Radio Lincolnshire).
Why join Woodhall Spa U3A?
You’ll meet active and enthusiastic people with a creative and positive approach to their leisure time. You’ll be able to take part in a range of activities once various groups have been set up - ten were set up at the Inaugural meeting.
Groups are formed in response to members’ suggestions. If you have an interest and would like to share this with others, you can propose a group and see who is interested in joining. U3A subject groups are self-organising and, unless otherwise stated, meet on a regular basis in members’ own homes. They each have a leader who may or may not be an expert in the subject to be studied but who is willing to do some of the organisation. Meetings can take place weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on the subject and the members’ preferences with normal breaks for Christmas and holidays.
You can join as many or as few groups as you wish. The groups aim to provide an opportunity for people to increase their knowledge in a relaxed and friendly way. There are no tests and no exams!
How to join Woodhall Spa U3A
