Don’t worry, it’s only temporary! Petwood Hotel Director Emma Brealey recently spent some time in Hamilton, Ontario, and sent back a souvenir video (via Facebook,) showing “our” Lancaster being transformed with the temporary markings of the Ruhr Express, KB700, Canada’s first built Lancaster. All was revealed at a special event at the Canadian Warplane Heritage museum. “It’s so wonderful to see our Canadian friends on screen again – and doesn’t Vera film well?!”

Woodhall Spa’s Cottage Museum may seem small, but it is one of Lincolnshire’s finest, having literally risen like a Phoenix from the flames since an arson attack in 2011. It was originally “…..the vision of one man, John Wield, over a hundred years ago. He foresaw that one-day people would ask about the origins of the then young Victorian spa community and so set about recording what he could for the future. John had a fascination with the art of photography, one of his many interests, and it is his photographic collection, which forms the basis for today’s Cottage Museum.”
But as well as capturing the village’s fascinating past, the museum hosts a range of special events throughout the summer. Here’s the August programme:
August 3 at 10:00 am to 12:00 pm: Creative Clay – Fantasy Creatures. This is another of our fun-filled children’s event. Come and have fun with different modelling materials. The event is only £3.00 per child and this covers all the materials. Continue reading →
From Katie-Louise Green, SO Festival Coordinator for Magna Vitae:
Cake Fest will be showcased at SO Festival on Sunday 2nd July. It’s basically a 100 square metre edible map of East Lindsey.
People are coming forward to bake landmarks of East Lindsey, to be placed on the map. Landmarks such as The Lancaster and Tattershall Castle will be created. There are hundreds of villages and churches, and I would absolutely love having a number of cake churches created for the map. Would Woodhall Spa like to be involved? Continue reading →
This year’s Woodhall Spa Country Show is only days away now, scheduled for Sunday the 21st of May. Come along any time between 9.30am and 5.00pm. You can find the showground along Green Lane opposite Canterbury Close (LN10 6QY), and a one way system will be operated on the day. All routes are signposted by AA signs.
“Our theme this year is to be ‘Traditional Rural Crafts’. The varied Lincolnshire environment lends its self to a wide range of crafts. The wolds have a tradition of hedge laying, there are dry stone walls in the Ancaster area and stone is a vernacular building material in the Stamford and Deeping areas. The fens and marsh have mud and stud used for cottages, some of which survive in entirety and many remnants are still there hidden away where people in the past have encased them in brick and tile as their living standards began to improve.”Continue reading →
