LETTER: A fantastic Christmas market in Woodhall Spa

I paid my first visit to Woodhall Spa just before Christmas.

Family friends had recommended Woodhall Spa for a short break after illness.

I stayed in the approach to Christmas.

Through the columns of your newspaper, I would just like to pass on my congratulations to everyone who helped create such a marvellous Festive atmosphere.

The shops were friendly - as were the people. The cafes and various eateries were a positive delight. I’ve got to admit I called in at the baker in the main street a few too many times!

The Christmas Market was a particular highlight. What a wonderful atmosphere. Yes, it was old fashioned. I would prefer the word traditional. It was heartening to see so many families enjoying themselves. The true spirit of Christmas.

I could actually walk down the main street at night which sadly is more than can be said for my home town.

My only disappointment is it has taken me almost 65 years to discover the delights of Woodhall Spa.

I will be back.
