New Trustees are added to boost Woodhall’s Jubilee Park board


Supporters of Woodhall Spa’s Jubilee Park are being urged to become members of the management company and help steer the popular facility into a more secure future.

Jubilee Park Woodhall Spa Ltd (JPWS) took over the running of the park and its swimming pool from the Parish Council at the start of the 2014 season. Its charitable status was confirmed in the autumn.

At the first AGM, held at the Petwood Hotel, two additional Trustees were voted onto the board - Kim Barr and Amarylis Midgley.

The original five Trustees - Chairman Emma Brealey, Tim Peacock, Julie Pole, Keith Scarborough and Justin Scarborough - were all re-elected,

Mr Peacock said: “We spent a lot of our first year fire fighting; this year we are broadening the management structure and putting in place a number of initiatives to help us take up a more pro-active stance.”

He revealed that rather than Trustees being involved in every aspect of the park, four separate groups were being created to look after different aspects of its management.

Anyone can join the management company – membership is free and members vote in the Trustees and help set policy.

Application forms can be downloaded from the Jubilee Park website, collected from the park office at the Swimming Pool or picked up at the library.

JPWS is totally separate from the supporters group, Friends of Jubilee Park.

The AGM also heard that this year’s subsidy of £14,000 from ELDC is the last that will be paid, adding to the importance for the company to find ways of boosting income to plug the resulting funding gap.
