Hello everyone. As things stand at the moment we will be starting the Dunholme Friendship Club on Tuesday September 21st in the Jubilee room at the Dunholme Village hall at 2.15pm.  After such a long enforced break nothing has currently been organised so It will be a casual meeting during which we can discuss our programme for the rest of the year and in the future.

Jambusters WI - September 2021

 

Hooray the Jambusters finally did it!, yes we managed to gather in August for our first face to face meeting for almost a year and a half.
The weather was kind to us as we sat relaxing outside on the school field, in garden chairs and on picnic blankets, sipping drinks, chatting and enjoying each others company. It was really lovely to see everyone.
A big thank you to Fleurs Kitchen for providing delicious crepes and drinks, which went down a treat.
We are busy back together again on Tuesday Sept 7th as Marvin Liddle, a local bee keeper, joins us and will be bringing along jars of his delicious local produce.
As our first real life, non-virtual speaker in a long time - we are buzzing with excitement!

 See you all in September at our usual abode, Dunholme St Chad's Primary School, at 7.30pm

 

Best Wishes
The Jambusters Committee Girl


Dunholme Village Hall

The current members of the Dunholme Village Hall have been on the committee for many years and some are  due to retire soon. The committee is therefore seeking  new members from the community to continue the good work.

The village hall is owned by the Parish Council but the committee is responsible for its day to day running.  This included  all bookings of all uses by local organisations and maintaining the building in a good condition.  The committee meets about once every two months,

If anyone is interested please contact the secretary on  01673 861172.

Dunholme Luncheon Club

 

Who knew that when we closed Luncheon in March 2020 as a precaution because of Covid we would not be reopening until 18 months later?  As the Government talk about lifting the final restrictions we have been looking at restarting Luncheon.  Should everything continue to plan we hope to resume Dunholme Luncheon Club on Tuesday 21st September. 

It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that we have lost 10 of our lovely diners who died during the lockdown.  We will miss welcoming them back and send our very best wishes to their family and friends.   We will be contacting all our existing diners at some point during August and will be opening a new waiting list.  Should you wish to be added to the list please contact Theresa on 07776158944.

 

The whole Team are looking forward to seeing you all again and feeding you lovely meals with a smile and a bit of chatter!

Scothern Players - back in action !

 

After an 18 month unforeseen break due to the pandemic of the century, Scothern Players have resumed rehearsals for their long awaited situational farce "Don't Get Your Vicars in a Twist".

 

Yes, the comedy play you should have seen in January 2020 is back. Barring further isolation restrictions, it will

be staged for your enjoyment at Scothern Village Hall on the 6th and 7th of November and the 12th and 13th of November 2021. Doors will open at 7 pm for a 7.30 pm start. All tickets cost a mere £ 9 each and are available

at WWW.SCOTHERNPLAYERS.ORG.UK or on 01673 861412.

 

To reassure those of a cautious disposition we have reduced our seating capacity to give you more breathing space and masks may be warn if you wish to do so.

Come along and enjoy the experience of live entertainment that you have been denied since the Covid virus first reared it's ugly head.

 

What happens when the Vicar is away? The church wardens arrange a murder mystery weekend in the vicarage of course. But when the Bishop makes a surprise visit identities are confused and mayhem results ! We only hope we can do justice to an hilarious and clever script by Anne Gawthorpe and Lesley Bown.

 

So this November don't miss the best laughs since....well, since we could laugh in public without a mask !!
