I can’t really comprehend that we are already going into September, this year has
gone so quickly! Oh well it must be my age. September sees two meetings the first will be on the 4th September when we will
have our penultimate Photographer of the year competition, this time the competition requires the members to produce images
of “Steps and Stairs” it doesn’t have to be both either will do. I’m sure some of the camera club
members will have been lucky enough to be abroad and have seen some exotic ancient steps leading to some old buildings but
I’m afraid my images will be a selection of whatever I have taken in the past or from a visit to Lincoln, but as I say
to everyone there are possibilities of pictures all around us in everyday life so (hopefully) you don’t have to spend
a fortune to get the winning picture.
Our second meeting of the month will be on the 18th September when Erica Oram
will be paying us a visit with the second part of her “Basic Elements for beginners” so if anyone is interested
in how to give your pictures that little bit of a tweak to make them stand out from the rest then do come along to the meeting
and meet like minded people. For non members the night will cost you just £2.00. we meet at The Old School Dunholme
starting at 7.30 and enjoy sharing our hobby of photography so make sure you come along. You don’t have to be great
at photography just an interest and a need to learn a little more.
We would be delighted to see you all on one of
our meeting nights. Get in touch if you would like further details.

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!
