All welcome

Dunholme Camera Club,

 We are well into 2018 now and moving through the programme at the Camera Club, the first 2 months were very informative, and we had some great nights both learning new skills through some practical evenings and theory evenings. Some big learning curves but it gives the members the skills to go out and try new things.


 During March we will have 3 meetings, the first will be on the 1st March when we will be having a social evening. We hold our social meeting in March to talk about what the members would like to see on the programme for the next year so if all members could have a think about what sort of content you would like to see in the 2019 programme and bring your ideas along on the night. Our second meeting on the 15th will be our second POTY (Photographer of the year) competition, these are club competitions of which there are 3 print competitions and 3 digital competitions. This one is the first digital competition which is an “Open” which means that the members can put forward any images of their choice 3 images per member. Finally on the 29th March we will be having a “Portrait” evening where I will be showing the members lighting techniques and poses to help the members get the best out of their models during the evening. I am hoping to get both male and female models so that the members have different ages and will be able to check out the different ways they can take pictures using the available light on the night.



Right moving onto something new, the Camera Club will be holding a new session for those people who would prefer to pop along during the daytime instead of turning out in the evening or maybe you don’t feel confident enough to meet with the photographers in the evening as you are only a starter with a more basic camera but would like to learn a little more about your camera and how to improve your photography? Well we will be holding the first official meeting on 29th March at The Old School Dunholme, start time 10.30 till 12.00 noon.

During this time, we will have a chat to see what you want from the daytime group, show you some pictures from the members of club and have a chat about what camera you have, what type of photos you like taking, and how we can help you improve your photography. Maybe you would just like to come along and have a chat with like minded people (and a cuppa of course) so make sure you get down to The Old School for 10.30 on the 29th March (PUT IT IN YOUR DIARY) there will be a nominal cost of £3.00 for the morning including refreshments. If you want any further details then please get in touch my details are below, this is an open invitation to everyone, it doesn’t matter what sort of a camera you have we are looking forward to seeing you nice and early.

Dunholme Lodge Charity Open Garden,

National Garden Scheme; May 13th and July 1st 2018  11- 5pm

We have been opening our gardens for a few years now. This will be the seventh  time with the National Garden Scheme . We raise money for our own church, St Chads and for the National Garden Scheme’s chosen charities-nursing, caring, cancer and gardening charities ( see NGS website for more details ). The gardens are approx., 3 acres and include a wild flower area, shrubs, vegetable garden, topiary hedge, a well and a natural pond. We also have craft stalls , plants etc , vintage tractors in May and music very often. Wheelchair access is good to most parts although there is some loose stone and gravel in some areas. There is a toilet available. SUPERVISED children are welcome.

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. Then you can enjoy a cup of tea and choose from a superb selection of cakes whilst you chat with friends. Bring your friends, aunties, uncles, grannies and granddads and enjoy the afternoon out. We are only 4 miles out of Lincoln on the A46 nr Welton. Just take the turn to Welton and we are half a mile on the left

The Jambusters WI - March 2018

February was the Annual Meeting for the Jambusters WI with changes taking place alongside the usual news update. A warm welcome to Michele, Julia and Charmaine who joined the committee team. Having been at the helm from the very beginning and steering the group for 4 years, President Cheryl Barrass along with Treasurer Jaclyn Gibson, stepped down in their current roles. A massive thank you to you both for all your valued hard work and commitment. We are pleased you will remain within the team as you take on new roles. Following a member's vote, the reins have been officially passed and we are delighted Helen O'Meara has been appointed as new President. Helen will be supported by Lesley, as the new Treasurer, keeping a keen eye on all things finance.  


With the formal business done and dusted, our speaker Marion from the Alzheimer's Society. Marion gave an extremely informative talk about both the work of the charity and an engaging insight for our members to take part in a Dementia Friends session.
Our thanks as always to the refreshment fairies for their tasty tea break treats.

A change to our planned speaker for the March 6th meeting, as Lincoln based Ticklebelly Bakery will be delighting us with their delicious wares.
