The Jambusters WI – December 2018

November saw us enjoying a warming taste of Deco No 22 Gin, thank you to local Lincolnshire lasses Sammie and Amy – wow 46% proof is one serious tipple!
Thanks also to all who helped out at the village Christmas Fayre – whether you lent a hand on the stall, provided cakes to sell or you were simply one of our happy customers– your support is much appreciated.

Our Tuesday 4th December meeting takes place in St Chad's Church where our cheers change to shouts of 'house!! as we round off the year with rousing renditions of Christmas carols, readings and real dedication to our Bingo sheets!

Thank you to all Jambuster members for another terrific year of Tuesday evenings together – what a lot of fun we've managed to pack into 2018
Can't wait for the jolly start to our 2019 programme as Rachael Burnett introduces us to Laughter Yoga – get set for some giggling on Tuesday 8th January!

Dunholme Camera Club

Evening Group


Well we are just about at the end of another year and I must admit a very successful one for the camera club, we have done very well in competitions during the year and have gained some new members throughout the year who have quickly joined in with the events and the happenings at the club. December has a couple of meetings which are basically members nights, the first on the 13th December will be our club meal and presentation night. During the year the members enter into various competitions and of course the winners receive cups or a shield so these will be presented on the night after the meal. Our second meeting will be on the 20th December which will be our AGM, all things Camera Club will be disused with a round up of the current 2018 club and moving on into the new year 2019 there are new and exciting things happening so these will be discussed on the night. Here’s looking forward to seeing some more new members during 2019 so if your interested please either come along on the night or get in  touch with me via the details below.


Day Group


Our day group only started in March but those members who have been able to attend have had a great time. The day group has developed into a Out and About group and each month we have been to a different location with out cameras and have tackled subjects which are new to some of the members which of course improves their photography abilities over the year. The current number of members who attend the day group is around the 12 so just a nice number when you are out and about. Looking to join a camera club and would like a taster of what we do then if you are free during the day get in touch and join us on one of our outings. The outing for December is not decided on yet but please go onto the camera club website Home Page and you will find out what we will be doing in December.


Well that only leaves me to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a great New Year, hoping to see you in 2019.
