The Jambusters WI - May 2018

The Jambuster ladies enjoyed a relaxing April gathering as we tried out the techniques of hand reflexology under the guidance of visiting speaker Anne Gayfer accompanied by Wendy Annibal.

We rounded off the evening putting our hands to further good use enjoying a cake and a cuppa provided by our lovely refreshment fairies.

At our May meeting on Tuesday 1st we'll be discussing the annual resolution topic as well as learning about all things floral from local flower arranging expert Lucie Reed. On Tuesday 5th June, we move from the fragrance of flowers to the aromas of cooking courtesy of a visit from Lincolnshire Chef, Rachel Green.

Dunholme Camera Club (Evening Group)

We had a great month at the club during April, A friendly competition with another photography club, a talk by myself on “Sports Photography” a club print competition on “Dereliction/Decay/Street Photography” and the L.P.A. Portfolio which is a collection of images from the clubs around Lincolnshire. Wow what a month!!! So what is happening at the club during May? Well our first meeting will be on the 3rd May when I will be showing the members some pictures of “The Birds of Australia” from a visit at the end of last year to Australia, it will be a busy night as I managed to get 157 different birds in 3 months plus of course some informational slides, certainly a busy night but some great images from my visit.


The second meeting will be on the 17th May which will be a showing of digital images which will have been taken by the members and there must be no manipulation. Within the armature photography circles there is never an image that is presented without some cropping, sharpening and manipulation so this little exercise will make the members think a little bit before they press the shutter. Our final meeting in May will be on the 31st when we will be holding another internal club digital competition which on this occasion will be “Patterns/Textures in Nature” should certainly be an entertaining evening, the judge will be Steve Marriot,


That’s everything for our main club meetings so if you would like to join us then either get in touch or pop along on the night for 7.15pm at The Old School Dunholme.

Dogs on leads are welcome. Entrance fee is £3.50 each and children under 12 yrs are free.

The premises were part of what was RAF Dunholme Lodge during the last war and we have a war memorial and a museum in an old cottage in the garden. Both are well worth a visit.
