Shoebox Update

We would just like to thank everyone who contributed in some way towards the 2018 Shoebox Appeal. We sent the last delivery on 30th November 2018 and our final total for the year was an amazing 3,604 completed boxes. That is a truly wonderful achievement and we could not have completed that many without the help and support of such a generous community. On behalf of all those children who will have received a gift at Christmas for the first time in their life THANK YOU.

The Jambusters WI – January 2019

Happy New Year to all and welcome back to our Jambuster ladies!
Our fabulous festive December meeting was filled with glorious voices, great company and good laughs, nicely rounding off 2018 topped with a flavour of Bingo fever.
The laughs continue with a side splitting start to 2019 on Tuesday 8th January back at our usual 7.30pm start time at St Chads Primary School. Having survived the Christmas chaos and endured the cheesy Christmas cracker jokes there will be plenty of 'loll's' as we unwind taking part in Laughter Yoga, our giggles guided by Rachael Burnett.
Polite reminder – please bring along your membership renewal fee of £42 to the January meeting. 
If you will not be renewing we will be sorry to lose you but do please drop us an email as soon as possible. This will enable us to offer spaces to ladies who have been sat patiently on our waiting list.

Looking ahead chilly weather may be on the cards for our February 5th meeting but it will be hot, hot, hot for our tastebuds as we look forward to a visit from local lad Jack Green of Dunholme Chillies.

Dunholme Camera Club

Evening Group


Well here we are shooting into a new year, long gone are those hot sunny days of 2018 when the members of the camera club were out and about with their cameras capturing special images from the various events and happenings of the summer months, but photography doesn’t stop just because it has turned colder in fact get wrapped up warm and get out either day or night for some great outdoor shots. The reason that winter photography can be so rewarding is that when there is a nice bright frosty day or night the air is very clear this allows you to get some great images without the usual summer hew (that is the misty appearance that an image has on summer days) so once you have some great photos then pop down to the camera club one Thursday night and share them with us, if your struggling with your photography then that is another great reason to check out what can be achieved by joining the camera club.


Right what do we have for you in January? Our first meeting will be on the 3rd January when we will have “All things DCC” this is an evening when we have a full explanation of how the club ticks along during the year and a breakdown of the various things we do at the club during the year, a very informative evening. The second meeting on the 10th January will be an extra evening in January and it will be “Show and Tell” this is an evening when the club member can bring along their images and discuss the possibilities of improvements from the other members of the club a good evening to get up to speed with the technicalities of your images for the year ahead. Finally on the 24th January we will have a “Camera Groups” evening where members will be split up into groups depending on the type of camera they have to discuss the buttons, menus, switches and other things on the cameras that they normally wouldn’t use, these evenings have gone down very well over the last couple of years and members have learnt a great deal from other members.


Day Group


The day group has proved very popular with up to 15 people attending during the day, if you are interested then please get in touch for full details. Our January meeting will be on the 8th January when we will be doing a “Lincoln Walk” a day out in Lincoln taking in the sites and sounds of the city.


Interested in joining us then please get in touch to see what we have to offer, visit our website below to see some great images.

The Royal British Legion

Welton and District Branch


 At our recent AGM we were unable to fill important positions on the Branch Committee. Unless these positions are filled by our members then the Branch

cannot properly function and the future of the Branch may be brought into question.


 A further meeting to consider and hopefully rectify the situation will be held in February. All Branch members will be notified of the place and time of this meeting when the details have been finalised.


 Please note that local training can be given to assist members in carrying out their role on the Branch Committee.


 Anyone wishing to join the present committee in the worthwhile work of

of The Royal British Legion and enable the Welton and District Branch to continue its proud service to the community are asked to contact me.
