The company running Jubilee Park in Woodhall Spa is appealing for its supporters’ views on a long-term development plan and for help in securing funding to make it happen.

Jubilee Park Woodhall Spa (JPWS) has several ideas in mind to boost income.

They include improved changing facilities, a 30-station fitness suite and a multi-purpose indoor studio.

The company believes the improvements would bring in all-year-round income and help to secure the facility’s long-term future.

They would also make sure the park’s popular outdoor pool remains open for another 80 years.

During the Woodhall Spa 40s weekend this Saturday and Sunday, a display showing the initial ideas and feedback forms for comments will be set up in the park’s own display tent in the rose garden.

Feedback forms are also available at the pool or via the Jubilee Park website.

Tim Peacock, one of the park’s trustees, said: “Although we are doing well on a day-to-day basis, we need to obtain significant additional funding to ensure the ageing buildings and our public conveniences are kept up-to-date, and that we offer additional health and fitness opportunities to complement what we do already and ensure we are self-sustaining.”

Visitors can also pick up information packs and details of local businesses supporting the park with special products and services.

The park was previously run by ELDC, which then handed responsibility on to Woodhall Spa Parish Council.

JPWS took charge earlier this year following a lengthy and, at times, heated battle.
