  • The Dunholme News
  • Until further  notice there will be no printed or distributed Dunholme News.  However to try to get important information to the community a shortened version will be produced and placed on the Internet as a pdf that can be downloaded from the Home Page.  
  • Please keep sending in your articles but should be limited to  help and social care information  relating to the problems that may be encountered during this pandemic  We will try to inform you when things are likely to be back to normal.
  • It now looks as though certain restrictions are being lifted as from 1st June.
  • Certain  junior schools will have a limited opening and  social gatherings are to be  relaxed.
  • I can not list them here as they appear to be changing by the day so just follow the daily press and TV news.
  • It is believed that social events where mass people will gather will be the last restriction to be relaxed. So until it does the Dunholme News will not be printed or distributed.
  • It will still be available on line as above.

Welton Pantomime Group.

It is with great sadness that we have decided not to go ahead with the planned pantomime at Welton Village Hall this year.
It may seem early to have made the decision however there is a lot of background work which goes into set building and costuming, which begins in June, and rehearsals, which begin at the end of August.
Under the current circumstances and lockdown it would be extremely difficult to maintain social distancing and as the set building is a group effort, it would be impossible as we are not able to gather as a group.
With such uncertainty around the current situation of Covid-19 we felt the risks, to health and financially, far outweighed the benefit of being able to put on the panto this year. The health of our audience and cast, some of whom are in vulnerable categories, are at the forefront of our decision.
Ultimately our aim as a group is to entertain families at Christmas time whilst raising money for local charities and causes,  however we do not know whether such large gatherings of people will be permitted by the end of November, therefore to avoid further disappointment nearer the time, we felt it best to make the decision now.
We hope that you are able to understand our decision and stress this is a decision that was not taken lightly.
We'd like to thank everyone for their continued support and look forward to welcoming you back on the 26th/27th November 2021 for our bigger and better performance of Snow White!
Money raised from the performances will be donated to the family of Elena Betts to a project in her memory. You can find out more about Elena by searching Elena's Story blog on Facebook.

You can also follow Welton Pantomime Group on Facebook to keep up to date with fundraising events and news.


Many thanks, Emmie

Cameron's Charity Cycle Ride

Cameron Atkinson is a year 5 student at Dunholme school & today (Monday 25th) is cycling a 40 mile round trip to say hi to all his classmates whilst raising money for our local food bank, my daughter is one of his classmates & I wondered if the story would be nice to include in an issue of the village magazine
