3rd prize    No 008    £10     Amanda Clancy (Dunholme)


Congratulations to our winners and a big thank you for your continued support.

As we draw summer to a close, it’s been a weird sort of year so far hasn’t it, holidays on/off, staycaytions on the up(prices to match) and a sort of shall we or not wear masks, hug, shake hands or just get together without “bubbles”. Well the only constants have been Gods love for us, and the continuing presence of the Lottery. One will continue ad infinitum and the other needs your support (no we are not stopping), the more members, the more money to share around. Give it a thought, then give us a ring.

Welton Village Library & Community Hub


Located at: Manor Park, Hackthorn Road, Welton LN2 3PA

We are pleased to announce two attractions returning in October. On Tuesday 19th October at 2pm we are delighted to welcome back Elaine Johnson to our first community hub event of 2021. The talk will be ‘Scoring Success - A History of Women’s Football’, we hope to see some familiar faces at the event and perhaps a few new ones. We cannot ignore the fact that some may be concerned to attend this type of meeting, facial coverings are now a personal choice and we are sure you will respect each other’s individual decision regarding this.

We will ensure good ventilation so please bear this in mind in terms of clothing and we will of course have plenty of hand gel and will ensure any surfaces have been sanitised in advance. As an added precaution we will be issuing tickets for this event so that we can ensure that numbers are kept to a reasonable level, tickets are free and can be obtained from the library during opening hours, Welton Parish Office and by application by email from or by using the messenger option on our Facebook page. This is likely to be a very popular talk so we advise you to obtain a ticket as soon as possible.


On each Monday afternoon in October at 2:30pm we will be running a Storytime and craft session for pre-school children. Previously we have limited ourselves to just school holidays, but we would like to try a regular weekly session to establish if there is a demand and whether this day and time suits people best. We have some very experienced readers looking forward to meeting the children, so parents, carers and childminders please just come along at 2:30pm on Mondays 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th October and see what we are doing. Please note that this will not be a ticketed event, although if numbers do exceed our expectations we may reconsider.


Our weekly opening hours for book borrowing, public computers and printing:

Mondays 12noon to 5pm,

Tuesdays 9:30am to 2:30pm,

Wednesdays 10am to 12noon

On 25 October 2018, the Old School Trustees were delighted to welcome and entertain a mixture of dignitaries and Old School users to the premises, to mark the official re-opening of certain areas of the building following extensive renovation work It was an ideal opportunity to express gratitude to the various bodies which have provided funding towards the renovation and extension work – West Lindsey District Council, the National Lottery and iGas Energy - and to showcase what has been achieved to date with the money raised. West Lindsey’s Chairman Cllr Pat Mewis and Vice-Chairman, Steve England, along with other WL councilors, were in attendance, as was Julian Tedder, CFO of iGas Energy and Gail Jackson (CEO of Community Lincs). After a presentation from the Dunholme Trust Chairman, John Ritchie and the Treasurer ,Grahame Dunkin the representatives were invited to cut ribbons marking the official re-opening of the kitchen, committee room and toilet block areas. Grahame had previously been nominated for, and awarded, the 2018 Community Lincs John Barker Trophy Award (Community Buildings) and this was presented to him during the course of the Open Day event by Jenny Stone from Community Lincs.
