Dunholme Luncheon Club


The weather may have continued to be less than Spring-like, but the rain has not been able to dampen the spirits of the Luncheon Club diners over the past month. The club presently has a full complement of diners, but if you are interested in joining us for a fortnightly lunch, please make contact and we shall be happy to add you to our waiting list – we would love to see you.


July 16th is the date of the final lunch before the volunteers take a well-earned break to recharge their batteries over the Summer. On behalf of myself and the diners, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers for the time they generously give to the club.

We wish all the diners a happy and relaxing Summer break and look forward to seeing you all again on September 17th.

Welton Village Library and Community Hub

July is one of our favourite times of the year as invite local youngsters aged 4 to 11 to join the Summer Reading Challenge and in 2024 the Challenge is all about being creative

in lots of different ways! Children taking part in the Challenge will meet the

Marvellous Makers, a creative club who are making amazing things for a (fictional)

festival at the library. They will discover that Tails (a cheeky squirrel) has been spotted at the creative club recently, and some objects have mysteriously gone missing from the club’s creative toolbox. As they move through their Challenge, children will collect stickers to reveal the missing objects, find out what Tails has been up to, and save the festival! The fun starts at any library session from Saturday 6th July, but do make sure you call in as soon as possible as sticker packs are limited.

We will also be holding a free special marvellous makers craft session on Saturday 27th July at 10:30 with creative weaving for ages 10 and under.

As part of the Welton Arts and Music Festival a children’s author will be reading at the library from 11:00 on Saturday 6th July, another free event.

Last, but not least, friend of the library Jim Blainey will be giving a Community Hub talk on his photography at 2:00 on Tuesday 16th July, all welcome.

Congratulations to our three lucky winners from the May draw.


1st  Prize No 104       £50  Jonas Gibson

2nd Prize No 077       £25  Jan Norris

3rd  Prize No 016       £10  Denis Minnitt


Well I don’t know if you have realized it, but on the 1st July there are only 178 days before it’s Christmas. I don’t want to hear any moans out there as you have now had plenty of warning. Come August Christmas cards will be on sale and before you know it, there will be Easter eggs on sale again. Where does the time go?? Before you get too maudlin, there is good news. WHAT? I hear you say. Well there are at least five more months of chances to bag a prize if you have a number in the red bag. Five more months of perhaps getting collared ( asked politely!) if you would like to help us with the draw at the Co-op. So, good things to look forward to.

You want to be in a draw? Get in touch soonest.

St Barnabas


We would like to introduce our latest In Memory Appeal for 2024, Feathers from Above.

At St Barnabas we recognise the importance for those in our local Lincolnshire communities (not just those touched by Hospice care) to remember their loved ones. Every two years we present an ironwork campaign, which consists of a bespoke, handmade ironwork that can be displayed at home, or outside in the garden. Our previous In Memory campaigns include the Forget me Nots at Lincoln Castle, Dragonflies at Doddington Hall, and Forever in our Hearts at the Deans Green, Lincoln Cathedral.

This year, we are proud to be working with local artist Kevin Baumber who has designed and created our incredible feather ironwork. Feathers from Above will be presented in the beautiful surroundings of Aubourn Hall, Gardens and Grounds from Thursday 2nd May to Sunday 19th May, 10am - 4pm. This will include the 1,000 feather ironworks forming a stunning interactive display of art. It offers a wonderful day out to enjoy the grounds at times that are not usually open to the public.

In addition to the day experiences, on the evenings of Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd of May, we will be hosting special opportunities of reflection. This will consist of, ambient music, a live saxophonist, welcome refreshments, and a display our supporters’ dedications.

A feather ironwork is available to purchase for £40, which includes an engraved tag of your loved one for you to keep forever.

If you are interested in coming along to any of our Feather from Above events or would like to purchase a feather, please visit our St Barnabas website.
