Knowing how much our new Prime Minister enjoys our award winning sausages, we were delighted to have the opportunity to deliver some personally to Westminster in September 2016. MP Victoria Atkins very kindly invited Russell and I to the Houses of Parliament to take a hamper of our Lincolnshire Produce. This was a once in a lifetime day for us and we cannot thank her enough. We were treated to a tour of both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, followed by watching the Speakers Procession and tickets to Theresa Mays second Prime Ministers Question Time. This was an extraordinary insight and wonderful glimpse into the heart of our democracy. A highlight of the day was Victoria presenting us on the steps of Westminster Hall with a framed photo of the Prime Minister and her visit to our shop last year. This was an amazing experience and we were honoured to have the opportunity to showcase Select Lincolnshire and our hand made award winning produce. We were honoured to recieve a letter from the Prime Minister thanking us for our hamper of produce and how much she enjoyed visiting Woodhall Spa and of course our Lincolnshire Sausages! What a wonderful experience to have had and thank you again to Victoria and everyone who made this trip to Westminster so special.
We feel that being such a small team - Sharon, Simon, Russell and myself, is really the key to our success. When you come into our shop you can be assured that Russell has made and prepared your meat and I have made and baked your pies and pastries.We believe that gives us power to control the quality of what we produce and keep it consistently extremely high. Russell is the Butcher and me (Sadie) the baker. Sharon and Simon are dedicated to offering you the best customer service. We work very hard to make traditional Lincolnshire dishes, preserving old artisan methods and recipes. Our aim is simply to make food for you that you love to eat and for you to be confident in what you have bought.
Woodhall Spa is a beautiful village in mid Lincolnshire and has become more and more popular as an inland holiday resort. There is much to enjoy with a rich aviation history, Lincoln, the coast and the wolds within easy reach and the village itself has much to offer. There are an abundance of places to stay, fantastic camping and caravanning parks, self catering cottages and hotels. The village is home to the headquarters of the English Golf Union with a world class golf course. There's interesting independent shops for you to enjoy, a great choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants. The Cottage Museum, https://www.cottagemuseum.co.uk/ The Kinema in theWoods http://www.thekinemainthewoods.co.uk/ and Jubilee Park http://jubileeparkwoodhallspa.co.uk/ are well worth a visit.
For one weekend in July, Woodhall Spa turns the clock back to all things 40's for the 1940's Festival. It is already one of the most popular events of its kind in the country, with thousands of people flocking into the area. It has an amazing atmosphere, with people dressing up, the local businesses turning the clock back, vintage stalls, re-enactors, it really isn't to be missed if you love all things vintage.
