The Dunholme Community Lottery started in January 2013 and the intentions were partly to raise money for the refurbishment of St Chad’s Church. Every generation of Dunholme has had the responsibility of caring for this beautiful building and now it’s our turn – it is vital that the building continues to be fit for use for your children and future generations.

The proceeds have also helped us create a Community fund where money
is available to any organisation or good cause in Dunholme. We are thrilled that the Kids, Mother & Toddlers, Friendship & Luncheon Clubs, Shoebox, Pre - school, Widows in Need, Bereavement Group, Knit and Natter and St Chad’s School have all received the financial help they asked us for.

A reminder that any club or group in the village that would benefit from some extra funds please do contact us and we’ll try to help even if you’ve had money in the past.

Each month there is a cash prize draw. Entries to the Scheme cost £9 (nine pounds) per month per entry. This must be paid in advance to the Community Lottery Scheme bank account by quarterly standing order. All Scheme prize draw winners will be paid electronically, direct to their own bank account.

So, if you already belong to the scheme – thank you so much, please tell your family and friends – and don’t forget you can have more than one number! If you are not ‘on board’ please do consider joining - we have numbers ready and waiting for a home and would love you to choose one!

The Dunholme Trust - Charity No 1160106

 

Dunholme Old School has seen quite a few changes over the last couple of years and hopefully more in the future, The kitchen is completed now and users have plenty of room to prepare their food etc., the ladies toilets are much more modern with the inclusion of cubicles. A lick of paint in some areas has brightened the building up which I must say is ongoing, the main hall will be the next one to have a facelift and then we can get the old images of the village up again, strange actually because I took the canvas prints down whilst we were having the kitchen built and the doorway put in to accommodate access to the toilets without walking through the kitchen area (local users will know what I mean by the last sentence) and now we have a number of people asking when the canvasses will be going back up? The reason as mentioned earlier is that we will be decorating in the main hall over the next month or so.

 At the Old School we also have a very large building at the rear which accommodates space for businesses and at the moment we have a room which has become free. The area could be used for a number of purposes so if you have a need for more space then please get in touch and I can show you round and see if it will be suitable for you, ideal usage would be office type use, the area is approximately 7mtrs x 5 mtrs. Anyone interested then please get in touch

 

You can book the Old School by contacting Janice our booking secretary 01673 861172.

Bookings being taken NOW for Kids parties, birthday parties, Christmas parties (we have a family who regularly books the Old School for Christmas day) so whatever your requirements get in touch with Janice.

Official Re-Opening of the Dunholme Old School

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.

Umbrellas Lincoln

Umbrellas Lincoln. Never heard of us?
That's probably because we're a relatively new organisation and we've only had charity status since March 2018.

Umbrellas Lincoln was initially set up in 2014 by Charlotte, our chair. We have 7 trustees, the majority of whom have children with addition needs. These vary greatly from autism and ADHD, to severe brain damage and physical disabilities, which means that between us we have a wealth of experience, both as parents of children with additional needs, but also in dealing with services and organisations to achieve the best for our children.

The main aim of Umbrellas is to raise funds to build a play and meeting place for children, young adults and families with additional needs. This aim is two fold, not only does it provide a place to meet and play, it provides a support network for parents carers and families, allows children and young adults to be around others and build social skills and allows siblings to form support networks as many are often young carers. We believe that a place where families can spend time together and have fun, as a family without judgement, is essential.

At varying locations, until we have somewhere to call our own, we are currently running events such as inclusive play so that parents and children are able to meet and have fun. These locations vary from 'Windmill Farm' to Birchwood climbing centre as we aim to meet the requirements of a wide variety of needs. We are also looking at other venues to ensure that they are stimulating and meeting the needs of all.

There are many ways we fundraise and we have lots of events planned throughout the year. These include wine tasting, an evening with Dan Hadfield, a pamper night, race night, many coffee mornings at Thorpe on the Hill Community Centre and The Old School in Dunholme and many, many, other exciting opportunities.

If you'd like to see more about what we do, follow us on Facebook - Umbrellas Lincoln or if you can help is in any way, by volunteering or donating items for events, cakes for coffee mornings etc, please get in touch. We are always grateful of help in any form and we'd like to thank everyone who has supported Umbrellas in any way so far in our journey.

We hope that you may be able to join us at one of our events in the future and support Umbrellas.

A46 / Lincoln Road Welton Improvement Scheme

An Information Event was held in the  Welton Manor Golf Centre (The Falconer), Hackthorn Road, 0n Thursday 15th June 2017  from 1:00pm to 7:00pm.

 Those that attended were able to meet with the design team behind plans to enhance safety and reduce congestion at the A46 / Lincoln Road (Welton Lane) junction.

 The improvement scheme aims to improve safety and reduce congestion at the current A46 / Lincoln Road T-junction by constructing a new three-armed roundabout and realigning the existing roads on the approaches.

 

 It was unfortunate that the  notification for this consultation was not received until 22nd May which was too late to get into the June edition of the Dunholme News and consequently few people knew about it.

However if you wish to  have more information, visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/roadworks.

Or contact  Charlotte Hughes. Assistant Project Leader

 Technical Services Partnership, Lincolnshire County Council

Crown House, Grantham Street, Lincoln, LN2 1BD

Customer Service Centre 01522 782070 . Direct Line 01522 555586.

 

The  existing road from Welton will be realigned further to the west  but leaving the existing road just as an access to the Centurion Garage. The  last bend on Welton Lane will be removed by the realignment which will also involve removal of the trees in the little copse on the west side. The whole area will be landscaped with new trees planted and it appears there may now be a path/cycle  track along this new stretch of road. I was informed that the proposed roundabout  at the junction of Lincoln Road (Dunholme) and the A46 will not happen. But the crest of the hill just past the Centurion Garage will be reduced by 2 Metres. The highways department has carried out computer modelling and the new layout and it is considered to be sufficient for all traffic needs up to at least 2035.

Planning application for A46 Dunholme / Welton Roundabout approved

 

Plans for a new roundabout at the junction of Lincoln Road and the A46 in Dunholme have been approved by the Planning and Regulation Committee, bringing the project one step closer to fruition.

The new roundabout, along with the improvement of visibility on the A46 to the east, will improve safety and reduce congestion at the current simple T-junction. The improvement will also accommodate future development in the area.

The A46 Dunholme, Welton Roundabout project will be part-funded using the £2m allocated to the authority by the Department of Transport (DfT) from tranche 2 of its National Productivity Investment Fund. The remaining funding for the construction of the scheme, including third party contributions, is currently being reviewed by the county council.
