The summer seems to be dying out and the colder darker nights taking over so at the Camera Club
we start to think slightly different with the settings on our cameras, higher ISO’s, F Stops, Shutter speeds etc? wonder
what I’m talking about then do come along and join us to get an insight into how to set your camera for the darker days
and even to take some great pictures leading up to the festive season. We will also be holding some training nights at the
club so if you are interested please drop me an email to get some dates and times.
October sees 3 meetings the
first on the 2nd October is “I know
what I like” this is a fun internal competition where the members can get THEIR favourite pictures out and to hell with
the judges!! The opinion of a judge at our Photographer of the year competitions help to improve our photography throughout
the year but their opinions are that of one individual and sometimes isn’t agreed by all. The second meeting is on the
16th October when the members will be out
in the dark at the Church in Dunholme “Painting with Light” something to challenge the members and hopefully get
some cracking shots in the process, if you fancy a go at something different then get in touch. Our final meeting is on the
30th October and our final internal competition
which is “Wild Life/Nature” quite an open competition on a theme so once again we should see some great images
on the night and this competition will be the one that decides the winners of our annual competitions, so Members get your
best entries in.
Well that’s all until next month so get in touch and come along and join us.

The Jambusters WI – October 2014
a very informative September meeting for our Jambuster ladies courtesy of Andrea from the Breast Care Unit. Many were able
to get answers to those questions that have been niggling away at the back of our minds. Congratulations go to our latest
'Just for a Giggle' winner, Leonie Robson, for her superbly decorated bra.
1940s dress code will be the evening
attire sported by some of us, as we head off to the Scampton Museum. Look out for photos appearing on our facebook site!
With the nights starting to draw in, the theme for our next meeting to be held on Tuesday October 7th darkens
too as we prepare to create some creepy, culinary delights. Genna will be guiding us through Halloween cake decorating. If
your previous baking skills have tended to turn out more beastly than beautiful, don't worry you can always join certain
members of the committee (who will remain nameless) and hide behind your 'Just for a Giggle'
We look forward to
being 'trick or treated' by our October refreshment fairies Beverley Willows-Chamberlain, Lynn Gladwell, Leonie Robson,
Catherine Kidals, Liz Brown and Pam King.
See you all on the 7th October for our first
meeting in Dunholme St Chad's School Hall.

A big ‘THANK YOU’ to all who came to see us at the Old School on the 10th
of September for the results of the survey and Public Consultation Period. Simon Barrett steered the evening and told
residents about the plans and future objectives of the group. Janet Clark from Community Lincs presented the findings
(a downloadable pdf document can be found on the ‘news’
section of the website www.dig-dunholme.co.uk). I gave a short presentation of the provisional
designs for the Old School showing the glazed area at the front housing the new café bar / bistro, the ‘theatre
style’ restaurant in the existing hall of the Old School and the various options for the ‘multi-purpose room to
the rear. Brian Wykes from DIG gave a quick summary of how we may be offering shares in the scheme - subject to the
legal status to be agreed with the Old School Trustees.
The immediate next step is to modernise the Trusteeship and governance
of the Old School to ensure that there are no obstacles to sourcing funding for the project. As there is a covenant
on the building which states that it can only be used as a Community Centre or a private dwelling, we are proposing a social
enterprise scheme whereby profits are fed back into the community.
Following on from that we will create the Business Plan with the
help from the Lincolnshire Co-Operative Development Agency (CDA). This is a lengthy job whereby the type of business
model will be adopted together with aims, objectives, financial and marketing strategies.
We are likely
to hold ‘Pop-up’ events at the Old School to help raise awareness for the project and to test it’s viability.
If you would like to receive an invitation, 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 on your suggestions.
