Lincolnshire’s local heroes have been recognised in this year’s Good Citizens Awards.

They will receive their awards from the chairman of Lincolnshire County Council, Cllr William Webb.

Community leadership: Jackie Goodall

Jackie’s voluntary work in Woodhall Spa and across the region is so outstanding it’s inspired a new category in the Good Citizens Awards!

Over the last 12 years she has shown amazing commitment as chairman of the board of directors to Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum and the Lincolnshire Heritage Forum.

Jackie played a pivotal role in the museum’s successful bid for £680,000 of Heritage Lottery Funding in 2011. The redeveloped attraction re-opened in 2013 and has hosted more than 6,000 visitors.

Successes include buying land and then creating Tom’s Wood, planting hundreds of trees along the A17, providing seats along the River Nene, and successfully campaigning to keep a local byway open.
