Below are details on some local organisations and groups in the town:
Horncastle History and Heritage Society (formally known as the Civic Society)
The Society was founded in 1966 adopting the constitution suggested by the Civic Trust. The main object behind the society is to safeguard and preserve the rich heritage of our ancient market town alongside the inevitable demands for growth and development.
The society also attempts to promote the history, places of interest and activities in the town, in order to generate local pride and awareness, greater participation, an active community spirit and an expanding tourist trade.

Horncastle Bridge Club
The Club runs Duplicate Bridge sessions at the Golf Hotel, Woodhall Spa, on Wednesday evenings from 7pm.
Bridge players who are seeking a friendly club to join are welcome to attend our club and play for free for a couple of evenings to gauge their interest in joining us. Partnerships are preferable, but single players are also welcome and if necessary we will arrange a partner for you.
If you play social bridge, why not come along on a Wednesday evening you may find you also enjoy playing club bridge. Visitors are also welcome to attend and play as guests, but prior notification of visits would be appreciated.
For more information call Doug Childs on 01526 353160

Adult Education Horncastle QEGS
Adult Education QEGS is a not-for-profit community group run by Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School Horncastle. We, in Adult Ed, believe that lifelong learning and the continuous acquisition of life skills promotes mental and physical well-being at any age for everybody. We try to provide a mixture of robust academic subjects, languages, history and sciences as well as the more hands-on type of learning such as art, crochet, garden design and singing. Hopefully there will be something for everyone and everyone is welcome. Have a look on Facebook (Adult Education Horncastle) and Twitter (@adultedQEGS) for information about our courses and classes. Our website can be accessed from www.adulteducationhorncastle.org. Please contact Sue Grau firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or enrolment issues. You can also telephone the school on 01507 522465 to leave a message.
The Hall was saved from demolition in 2010 and has become a community facility ran and led by the community through the Stanhope Hall group (which is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee)
More details on events and how to book the hall can be found at http://stanhopehall.org
Transition Town Horncastle
We recognise two crucial points:
• that we used immense amounts of creativity, ingenuity and adaptability on the way up the energy upslope, and that there’s no reason for us not to do the same on the downslope
• if we collectively plan and act early enough there’s every likelihood that we can create a way of living that’s significantly more connected, more vibrant and more in touch with our environment than the oil-addicted treadmill that we find ourselves on today.
