About:

I think the community of Woodhall Spa accepts that growth and development is both necessary and indeed desirable.

But, this must be controlled so Woodhall is not destroyed by greedy developers who will build wherever they can to make money, without any thought for the damage they are causing to the community of Woodhall.

ELDC’s 15 year plan has a “target” of some 300 houses to be built in Woodhall. But, this is misleading, it is not a target it is a minimum – there is no upper limit.

This is not acceptable.

This no upper limit policy will result in a fast uncontrolled expansion of Woodhall. Causing an irreversible change to the village; and, an infrastructure (ie schools, doctors, etc.) that will be overwhelmed.

If we all get involved and take action, we stand a good chance as a community of defending our village.

If you’d like to help with this campaign please send me a message or email.

Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival Press Release

1940s Festival Welcomed Record Crowd to Woodhall Spa

* Soaring temperatures resulted in estimated 40,000 flocking to Lincolnshire village this weekend
* New parking measures welcomed but some challenges remain

Woodhall Spa’s 1940s festival attracted a record number of visitors this weekend – double the figure of 20,000 predicted just last week. Just five years in, the success of the 2016 event has now secured the festival’s reputation as one of the region’s most popular and unique fixtures.

An estimated 40,000 people attended this weekend’s Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival, which was this year sponsored by the Petwood Hotel and the The Golf Hotel & Aqua Sante Spa – Woodhall (with additional support The INN at Woodhall Spa and Woodhall Country Park. Feedback on social media suggests it has been an overwhelming triumph and many visitors have vowed to return next year.

The streets, venues, cafes, parks, squares, bars, hotels, halls and restaurants were packed all weekend long with those who wanted to celebrate life on the British Homefront in a beautiful Lincolnshire village. The choice of over 80 free festival events, range of food and drink stalls and exciting living history exhibits – not to mention the glorious weather – meant many came and stayed to enjoy everything on offer.

Comments by visitors on the festival’s Facebook page now run into the thousands, with the vast majority praising the quality, variety, efficiency, atmosphere, organisation and friendliness of the volunteer run and free-to-attend festival.

Chair of the festival’s organising committee Andy Hunter said this morning: “It’s been a truly fantastic weekend. We are delighted that so many people – many more than we could have imagined – came to enjoy all we had been working hard to arrange. The weather was exceptionally good, and the atmosphere was wonderful from start to end. I’d like to thank everyone who came for their enthusiasm, and offer a message of gratitude to residents for supporting the festival each year.”

Leader of East Lindsey District Council Councillor Craig Leyland, also offered some supportive comments, saying today: “I’d like to congratulate the organisers of the Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival. It has been the biggest and best festival yet. This weekend has been a massive success thanks to the many hours of work put in by the committee, but also the warm welcome offered by Woodhall Spa’s residents. It’s really something for us all to be proud of”.

It wasn’t just the mercury that soared high this weekend. After many months out of action, BBMF’s famed (and locally beloved) Lancaster Bomber, affectionately known as Thumper, completed a first test flight over the festival crowd during the Sunday morning of the festival. It even returned later in the afternoon to close the festival’s main proceedings, to much delight.

New traffic measures introduced this year were also welcomed by many, but there are some challenges to overcome given the new scale of the event. The closure of Station Road and Broadway – a safety measure new for this year – was met with very positive reviews, and the clear diversion to allow locals to pass through the Village also worked very well. Over 3,000 cars used the new park and ride facilities over the weekend. While many praised the system, there were challenges in getting the shuttle busses through the queue for the car park; further feedback from Woodhall Spa residents suggests that some visitors ignored the parking instructions and parked on residential streets despite restrictions, coning and clear signage. The festival’s committee has vowed to review the provision of parking before any decision is made on an event for 2017.

Andy Hunter says that the committee will seek to overcome the remaining traffic issues: “Putting on a show of this scale, which has grown very quickly, and providing the right park and ride facilities in a rural Lincolnshire village is always going to be a challenge. We worked very hard to put together a robust plan for this year, and on the whole it worked very well. But there’s clearly more for us to do to ensure that traffic flows more freely to and from the car parks and also to deter parking outside the designated areas; and we’ll be looking to the authorities to help us enforce the restrictions. In the meantime, I’d like to thank my fellow residents for their patience and support.”

The organising committee wish to thank all visitors, residents, businesses, performers, re-enactors and the festival’s main sponsors The Petwood and The Golf Hotel, and our supporting sponsors The Inn at Woodhall Spa and Woodhall Spa County Park.

Woodhall Spa Scout Campsite

This is a smallish site split into 3 main camping areas with wooded areas ideal for bivvying/backwoods camping.
There is a toilet block with disabled facilities(soon to be finished), a small cabin and a campfire circle.
The cabin was completely rebuilt and refitted in 2009. A large cooker, gas fridge and water heater were fitted. Electricity is by way of a gas generator. Movable Stainless work surfaces and a large double sink top it off. There is also a log burner for those really cold winter camps. Tables and chairs are also provided.
The toilet block has been re-roofed and refitted and also has a hot water boiler. It has since undergone further transformation with the addition of a unisex disabled toilet(soon to be finished).
You will need to provide your own gas to run the appliances, gas boilers and generator.

Close by is Woodhall Spa itself (approx 1 mile) with some lovely little shops and 2 small supermarkets. The chip shop is highly recommended. There is a lovely outdoor swimming pool in Jubilee Park and the world famous Kinema in the Woods (cinema).
Just round the corner from the site is Ostlers Plantation which was originally part of RAF Woodhall. This is also an excellent walking area.

Local residents walk their dogs through the site but most stick to the roadway and often will not come if there is someone camping. They do clean up and are usually no bother.
If you bring a dog, please do clean up behind it.

A campsite badge is also available to
purchase.

Bookings for 2016 are going well so if you would like to book an evening, weekend or week please get in touch.
