Based at Manor Park, Hackthorn Road Welton LN2 3PA

Monday 12noon to 5pm, Tuesday 9:30am to 2:30pm

Wednesday & Saturday 10am to 12 noon

(Note Christmas and New Year arrangements detailed below)


Do come along to the library to see our Virtual Trip Around the World information board, it is full of ideas of books suitable for every reader, both children and adults, which are either on our shelves or available to order for free from Lincolnshire Libraries. These lists are to encourage anyone of any age to join our challenge to read a book from each of the seven continents and complete a reading passport which you can collect from the library. It really is something for all ages and is inspired by a similar challenge for Welton St. Mary’s Academy children who have their own school passports. We will be delighted to provide all children and their parents with a list of book ideas to complete either the Welton school challenge or those from any other school entering our library challenge in their own right. Needless to say you can join the library for yourself or a child by popping along with an item of identification.

Saturday 9th December at 10:30am is the next date for one of our popular children’s storytime and craft events, do bring a youngster along for some seasonal based fun, there is no charge and library membership is not required.


Finally a reminder that the last day the library will be open in 2023 will be Wednesday 20th December and our first day back will be Tuesday 2nd January 2024. Borrowing periods will be automatically extended and members can of course use Lincolnshire Library’s on line service at any time to renew books or read ebooks, newspapers and magazines.

The volunteer team wish everyone a happy and relaxing Christmas with hope for peace around the world in the New Year.

Scout and Guide Hut Committee


We start this month with our bags2school collection, with the help from everyone who brought clothes etc for us, we raised an amazing £390! Picture below showing the amount collected. We will arrange another collection for next year, so if you could keep on collecting for us it would be very much appreciated.

Our next fundraising event will be on Saturday 27th January 2024. Doors will open at 6pm for eyes down at 6.30pm. So come along at join us on our Burns Night bingo and bangers evening!  Hotdogs will be £2.50 each, drinks for donations and bingo will be 6 games for £3. There will be some small games stalls in the interval to keep the children occupied, and for each line or house won at bingo there will be lots of prizes to choose from!

We had an attempt at clearing the undergrowth opposite the scout and guide hut, but it proved too much for us to clear in one go, we managed to fill 4 green bins, kindly loaned to us from the Parish Council. So our thanks go to them for their part in this, it’s amazing how soon the bins filled!

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year when we celebrate the birth of Christ and   exchange gifts with our loved ones. For many of us we scratch our heads and cry   ‘what shall I get’.... So, if f you are wondering what to buy your family and friends, and the prospect of facing busy shops or battling with the difficulties of internet shopping leaves you in a spin, then why not GO LOCAL for St. CHAD'S this year instead?


Purchasing a new (or additional) entry for the Community Lottery Scheme - St. Chad's Church, Dunholme for your family and friends benefits our local community and supports the fabric of our village by helping to maintain the church. Perhaps this could be your ideal Christmas present solution this year?


The lucky recipient of your gift will have the chance to win in the quarterly 'bonus' draws as well as participate in the smaller monthly draws. With 36 draws per year

(3 each month)  and an annual prize fund that currently exceeds £2100, it is the gift that keeps on giving!

Recycle your Christmas tree with St Barnabas

Each year we offer the community to have their real Christmas tree collected after the festive period, which means you don’t need to make a trip to the tip or spend time vacuuming needles out of your car!


Please look out for the registration page which will be going live on our St Barnabas website from Friday 24th November. There is no set price for collecting the tree, but we do have suggested donation amounts. This amount is reflective of how much it costs to care for our patients, so not only are you doing your bit for the environment, but also helping to pay for a patient in their own home or in one of our Specialist Inpatient Units.

  • Registrations for Tree-cycle will stay open until Wednesday 3rd January 2024

The team of elves will be collecting trees between Saturday 6th January until Wednesday 10th January 2024

If you have already signed up, please keep an eye out on our socials and e-mails for further details of when we will be collecting trees in your area.
