Book now to dine out with the Trotters

This is the show you’ve all been asking for – and it’s brought to you by the people behind the worldwide smash hit, Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience.

Meet the pride of Peckham in a night of eating, wheeling and dealing at the Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa. The fun starts from the moment audiences you the Trotters and their friends for a knees-up. Meanwhile, of course, they try to drum up some cash and make a cheeky saving on the side. So why is the pub closed on the busiest night of the week…?

Book now for the Friday night – the Saturday show is fully booked.

The Woodhall Spa Trail in winter

Just because it’s January, there’s no excuse for not going out to enjoy our Lincolnshire countryside, and there are some really enjoyable walks not far from the village centre. I have mentioned the Water Rail Way, which follows the River Witham from Boston to Lincoln, but another favourite is the Woodhall Spa Trail, which connects the village to the nearby market town of Horncastle.

This trail features in the iFootpath Walking Guide online series where you will find a mine of information for each section of this walk. The succinct introduction talks of: “A 7 mile ‘there and back’ walk along the mid section of the old Horncastle to Woodhall Junction railway line in Lincolnshire, known as the Spa Trail. The trail, part of the Viking Way long distance path, passes through a mix of woodland and open countryside. Along the way you will discover impressive sculptures made from wood, stone and metal, all reflecting local wildlife and links with the past.”

The iFootpath web page also has a photo gallery and a couple of comments, one of which sums the walk up well: “Done this walk many times with the ramblers and ourselves. Never tire of – it’s a lovely winter walk even without your walking boots on. Well worth a visit and with pubs & tea shops either end you cannot fail to enjoy.”
