Dunholme Camera Club
over half the year gone and we have seen some great images from the members at the Camera Club, we have had some talks, seen
some great images from our visitors and heard some great critique from the judges of our competitions. It has been good to
see an influx of new members this year and I must admit there are some good photographers among them. We still have about
5 places left at the club so if you are interested in expanding your photographic knowledge then please get in touch or just
come along on the night of a meeting.
has 2 meetings and we start off with one of our competitions on the 10th July entitled
“Shapes” the members have to produce a panel of 3 images depicting 3 shapes, a square, a round and a triangular
item that links together in some way. Should be some interesting results, good luck to everyone.
Our second meeting is on the 24th July and is Treasure
Hunt/Village photography evening. So all members will be able to get their cameras out and take some shots from around Dunholme
as they search out the clues for the treasure hunt, fun for all. So if you are interested in joining us either be at The Old
School on a meeting night for 7.30pm or get in touch in advance for further details.

The Jambusters WI - July 2014
Well ladies what can we say but WOW! It was a jam-packed room for the opening meeting with an
almost unanimous vote for the new name The Jambusters WI. With a truly unexpected attendance of over 100 ladies, we were overjoyed
and overwhelmed to have such a fantastic turnout. With cake aplenty, glasses of bubbly and the kettles working overtime, a
good time was had by all. The evening ended with a roof-lifting rendition of Jerusalem that had a few of us close to tears!
Off to a busy start holding our first stall at the Dunholme Village Fete on the 28th June with yummy cakes and children’s competitions, we say a big
thank you to all our volunteers and bakers!. Our 1st July meeting with delicious samples from Dennetts Ice Cream, genius ‘tennis ball’ creations and superb
strawberry & cream treats from our refreshment fairies, (Lynn Prescott, Helen Douse, Michelle Burton, Lynn Busby, Marilyn Daly and Anna Baxter) - roll on summer!
With no WI meeting held in August, if
you haven’t already put your name down for the outing on Sept 19th to the RAF Scampton Museum, do please let us know before 31st July so we can confirm numbers to museum staff. Transportation
and security clearance details will be discussed at our next meeting at the Old School in Dunholme on Tues 2nd Sept.
We look forward to seeing you all!

Dunholme Improvement Group
Rex Gregson and Philippa Duncan gave a presentation to the new Dunholme
WI about our progress on the Old School Project and were truly amazed at the numbers
who attended this inaugural meeting. Good luck to the ladies of the WI, the programme of events seems very interesting! The
first task given was to design a novel way of using a tennis ball…
big ‘THANK YOU’ to all who came to see us at the Dunholme fete. our bar was busy as was the Old School where we had an exhibition
and the architects ‘fly through’ of a very early stage possible use for the Old School at Dunholme. We collected
further information from the residents in order to go towards the ‘Public Consultation’.
This is the first stage of the development process, we move onto applications for
grants and loans after we have reached our conclusions as to what the public would like us to do with the building.
would also like to acknowledge the people who have kindly said that they would help with fund-raising, or joining a ‘friends of’ or
buying shares. We shall be getting
back to you once the vision is more complete as to which way we are taking the project. The situation regarding whether we
will be offering shares is undecided and depends upon the level of interest in the scheme - again we await the outcome of
the various consultations we are undertaking, prior to making a decision. We have your email addresses and will send out an
e-newsletter to let you know the results and if we are having another ‘pop-up’
bar and social evening to tell you more!
you would like to keep current with what progress we are making please sign up for the e-newsletter and we can get messages to you
as and when there is something new or exciting to report. There is a sign-up button on the home page of the website as well
as a place on the ‘comments’ page where you can pass comments or suggestions.
next consultation will be at the Dunholme Lodge Open Garden
on the 13th of July, our exhibition stand and architects impressions will be there
to be viewed - conveniently situated next door to the refreshments! The gardens are beautiful, but not only that there is
a museum of war time RAF Dunholme Lodge, and plenty of craft stalls! A good day out for the whole family to enjoy!
