The Jambusters WI – October 2018

What a crafty lot our Jambuster ladies are as an array of colourful glass stockings were made at our October meeting under the guidance of Donna from the ArtPod. Donna demonstrated the skills used to make beautiful glass art including jewellery, ornaments and decorations.
We all got stuck in making our individual pieces, which once fired in Donna's kiln, will be returned in time for our December meeting - we can't wait to see the finished results to proudly hang them on our Christmas tree. 

Our next meeting on Tuesday 6th Nov sees a return visit from Sammie & Amy to tell us more about Deco 22 Gin. A reminder that the Village Christmas Fayre on Fri 30th Nov takes place at Dunholme St Chad's School where we will be having our usual stall, offers of help both with cake donations and to lend a hand on the stall are greatly welcome from WI members to help raise WI funds.

We'll be in the Christmas spirit on Tuesday 4th December singing carols, eating mince pies and playing Bingo – get ready for eyes down ladies!

Dunholme Camera Club.


Evening Group

 Well we are very quickly moving towards the end of the year the Autumn is definitely upon us. Moving into winter we still have some great happenings at the Camera Club, firstly in November on the first of the month we will be having the “Chairs Challenge” this year our Chairman “Jim  Blainey” set us a challenge “3 in Nature” his brief was to produce a single image which has 3 things depicting nature so three birds, or 1 bird, 1 tree, 1 flower, etc; 3 different types of fungi. There should be some great results. The second meeting will be the final of the “Monthly Online Competition” during the year members have been competing in a monthly competition where they have been given a different theme every month and the top 5 winners from each month will be going into this final competition, there are 10 monthly competitions so there will be 55 entries for me to judge on the 15th November, may the best photographer win. We have 3 meetings during November and the final meeting of the month on the 29th November will be a “Camera Alternative’s “ evening when members will be showing their images taken with their Mobile Phones, Tablets or iPods etc; no prizes or awards but just sharing the images that we have taken when a camera was not available.

 We have had an amazing year sharing experiences, looking at other members images and entering the competitions that have been set for us during the year so if you would like to improve your photography in 2019 then get down to The Old School one night at the beginning of the year and join in. £30.00 a year membership which is about £2.00 per meeting, great entertainment at that price.


 Day Group

 Our day group has gone from strength to strength with roughly about 15 members attending various activities during the year since we started, the meetings have mainly been based on outdoor activities where we can get out and about with our cameras doing what we do best “taking pictures” many activities have been covered during the year including, Landscapes, Wildlife, Motor Sport, plus much more. We hope to continue the outdoor theme in November when we will be visiting “Clumber Park” on the 6th November and weather permitting getting some great shots around the park, fresh air and a great walk with likeminded photographers exchanging tips and tricks. If the weather doesn’t allow us out and about we will be at Dunholme Old School in the main hall where we will be finding out about some of the lesser used options on our cameras, sharing techniques and getting to grips with the finer details of the cameras. If you would like to join the day group but don’t have transport available then the members attending do work out a “Car Sharing” scheme so that everyone can get to the relevant places on the day.
