Coningsby, Tattershall & District History Society


New Methodist Church
Silver Street

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.

About Rotary and our club

Rotary is the ultimate service club with 35,000 clubs and 1.2 million members worldwide. In Great Britain there are 1700 clubs with 40,000 Rotarians.

Founded in 1988 and twinned with the Rotary Club of Grandvilliers in Northern France, our club is part of District 1070 comprising around 80 clubs in the East Midlands. The Woodhall club draws members from Tattershall, Coningsby and surrounding villages as well as Woodhall Spa itself and currently has around 40 members.

Regular meetings

At our regular Monday meetings we enjoy a good meal in the comfortable surroundings of The Dower House Hotel. We have a mixture of visiting speakers and presentations, business sessions, social events and outside visits. There is no requirement to attend every meeting and most Rotarians fit their Rotary activities around their personal, business and family lives. Nevertheless, being involved in the Club’s activities is important – that’s how we make a difference and build friendships.

Our major projects include organising the annual Woodhall Spa Christmas Fayre as well as an annual Charity Golf Day attracting players from all over the country. These help us to fund our charitable activities.

Wapentake Magazine

This community magazine carries a monthly report of our activities. Take a look and if you’re interested in joining us or just finding out a bit more about what we do, visit our website: or get in touch with any Rotarian.

The Conservative Club of Woodhall Spa is a snooker and social club in the heart of the village. It is managed by an elected committee and is non profit making. Although affiliated, the Conservative Club is non political in that it aims to bring together people that wish to socialise in a pleasant environment. It has three snooker tables, an active dominoes team, quiz nights and bingo nights. There are also monthly poker nights, live entertainment nights and throughout the year there are various other activities. The Club also holds fund raising events to support charities that benefit local people.

A large, very comfortable seating area, a games room and television room provide areas to suit all kinds of socialising.

It is a members club, however there are reduced rates for summer visitors and you are welcome to come and have a drink, and see what a pleasant environment it is. You can be signed in by a member for £1.00. The steward and stewardess will make you feel welcome and give you the paperwork if you decide to join us.

Woodhall Spa and District Gardeners Association


St Peters Church Hall
The Broadway
Woodhall Spa

The earliest record of the Association is February 1949 when we believe the Woodhall Spa Horticultural Society was formed.  The Association continued until 25th September 1961 when they amalgamated with the Flower Show, and the Woodhall Spa & District Gardeners' Association was formed.

The annual subscription at that time was three shillings and sixpence and today stands at just £5.00 (not bad considering inflation since 1961 is just under 2000%!!)

In 1962, the annual show was held in a marquee in Jubilee Park and in 1963 they started having regular lectures.  The meeting place for these was the Women's Conservative Club on The Broadway.  Sadly, the building burnt down and is now the site where McColl's Newspaper shop stands.

During this time the Club raised revenue by holding coffee mornings, jumble sales and bingo.

Outings were organised, but these tended to be short local affairs.

In 1988, the Club became affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society.

In 1990, the Club moved its meetings into St Peters Church Hall and this is where we still meet today.

The Club is thriving and still serving Woodhall Spa Gardeners.  However, we now have members from several other local towns and villages.

U3AWoodhall Spa U3A

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

Simply contact the membership Secretary by email for details and an application form.
