West Lindsey Community Awards 2017


 At the West Lindsey Community Awards Ceremony held on 24th April 2017, West Lindsey District Council recognised residents for their outstanding contribution to their local community. Town and parish councillors, volunteers and community groups were invited to the Guildhall in Gainsborough to the Community awards 2017.


Cllr Roger Patterson, Chairman of the Council said: “I have met so many amazing people as chairman of the council and tonight has been no exception. They do so much work in the community, giving up their own time, helping and supporting each other - it truly is amazing and needs to be acknowledged.  I am only sorry that everyone who was nominated could not be here to join in the celebrations.”


Manjeet Gill, Chief Executive of West Lindsey District Council was delighted the council was able to give special recognition to its unsung heroes of the community.


She said: “We have had a lot of nominations for our Community Awards with so many people giving up their time to support their communities and I am pleased we are here to celebrate all of their achievements.”


Sue Rawson and Sandra Forman, from Dunholme, were awarded the Community Group of the Year award. They were presented with their award by Councillor Giles McNeill who read out the citation which praised them for all their outstanding work in organising and holding fund raising events for local and national charities and organisations, and for their work in sending Shoeboxes abroad for children at Christmas.


Sue said: “We started out holding jumble sales for Marie Curie Cancer Care many years ago. In fact we managed to track over the last 20 years and we have raised a staggering £97,000 alone just from Jumble sales. We have also held many other events and other fund raising activities which have now raised over £179,000. Also, we send gift filled shoeboxes to underprivileged children at Christmas time and since 2002 we have sent over 30,000 shoeboxes.”


Sue added: “We can’t believe it. I feel we don’t deserve it because it is our community and volunteers who help us achieve this.  But it is an honour and we are delighted to accept this award.  We would like to thank our husbands who have helped and supported us through this.

Dunholme Old School


Community Centre


The Dunholme Trust


Charity No 1160106

 

Dunholme Old School has seen quite a few changes over the last couple of years and hopefully more in the future, The kitchen is completed now and users have plenty of room to prepare their food etc., the ladies toilets are much more modern with the inclusion of cubicles. A lick of paint in some areas has brightened the building up which I must say is ongoing, the main hall will be the next one to have a facelift and then we can get the old images of the village up again, strange actually because I took the canvas prints down whilst we were having the kitchen built and the doorway put in to accommodate access to the toilets without walking through the kitchen area (local users will know what I mean by the last sentence) and now we have a number of people asking when the canvasses will be going back up? The reason as mentioned earlier is that we will be decorating in the main hall over the next month or so.

 At the Old School we also have a very large building at the rear which accommodates space for businesses and at the moment we have a room which has become free. The area could be used for a number of purposes so if you have a need for more space then please get in touch and I can show you round and see if it will be suitable for you, ideal usage would be office type use, the area is approximately 7mtrs x 5 mtrs. Anyone interested then please get in touch

 

You can book the Old School by contacting Janice our booking secretary 01673 861172.

Bookings being taken NOW for Kids parties, birthday parties, Christmas parties (we have a family who regularly books the Old School for Christmas day) so whatever your requirements get in touch with Janice.

Dunholme Village Fete

 The Fete Committee would like to thank all those who volunteered  to help and give freely of their time in the months leading up to the Fete and for their hard work put in on the day.

A great deal of thanks is expressed to all who were involved in providing equipment, erecting marquees, transportation etc. which was invaluable.

Extending the site to the Old School proved to be a success and the work put in to link the Old School (bunting, signing, activities and stalls on the grassed area to the front of the church) helped encourage people to move around the site and the dressing of the Old School car park and Marquee made the area very attractive. 

The Fete was well attended and the old favourite duck race and boat race pulled in a great deal of support as did the children’s history trail. There was  ‘food a plenty’ and a variety of entertainment in the church and Sycamore Gardens not forgetting ice cream, strawberries and cream and Licensed Bar. Twenty four stalls, supporting local charities and small businesses were dotted around the area which added to the atmosphere.

We are particularly grateful to Andrew and Karoline for the use of their gardens without which it would have been impossible to promote the Fete.

We are very grateful to Philippa Duncan for her support and expertise in setting out the Fete Programme and advertisements in addition to other advice given in the lead up to the event.

Particular thanks are extended to the Dunholme Old School Committee for their help and understanding and the Dunholme News Committee for their assistance with the printing of the Fete Programme.  

Thank you for attending and we hope you enjoyed the afternoon – Even the weather was kind this year.

 David Rosier on behalf of the Dunholme Fete Committee

The village hall bar proprietor Simon Barrett was asked to provide a bar for this year's village fete, which he agreed to do, having done all the planning, purchased the stock and arranged the equipment to dispense the beer. Unfortunately on the Thursday afternoon before the fete on Saturday the supplier of the equipment rang to say that it was no longer available as it was not working correctly and that they could not get it fixed in time.

David Rosier was told that he may have to cancel as it would not be able to sort other equipment in the time, however, David contacted Ferry Ales Brewery over a Fiskerton who said they may be able to help.

John Cussons from F.A.B  was met at the village hall at 9pm  Thursday night, and between Simon and John  they managed to put together a system that would allow draft chilled beer to be dispensed at the fete on Saturday..

Dunholme Lodge Charity Open Garden

National Garden Scheme

July 9th 2017  11- 5pm

We have been opening our gardens for a few years now. This will be the sixth time with the National Garden Scheme . We raise money for our own church, St Chards and for the National Garden Scheme’s chosen charities-nursing, caring, cancer and gardening charities ( see NGS website for more details )

The gardens are approx., 3 acres and include a wild flower area, shrubs, vegetable garden, topiary hedge, a well and a natural pond.

We also have craft stalls , books, plants etc and music very often.

Wheelchair access is good to most parts although there is some loose stone and gravel in some areas. There is a toilet available.

SUPERVISED children are welcome.

Dogs on leads are welcome.

Entrance fee is £3.50 each and children under 12 yrs are free.

The premises were part of what was RAF Dunholme Lodge during the last war and we have a war memorial and a museum  in an old cottage in the garden. Both are well worth a visit. Then you can enjoy a cup of tea and choose from a superb selection of cakes whilst you chat with friends.

Bring your friends, aunties, uncles, grannies and granddads and enjoy the afternoon out

We are only 4 miles out of Lincoln on the A46 nr Welton. Just take the turn to Welton and we are half a mile on the left

We look forward to seeing you!

A46 / Lincoln Road Welton Improvement Scheme

An Information Event was held in the  Welton Manor Golf Centre (The Falconer), Hackthorn Road, 0n Thursday 15th June 2017  from 1:00pm to 7:00pm.

 Those that attended were able to meet with the design team behind plans to enhance safety and reduce congestion at the A46 / Lincoln Road (Welton Lane) junction.

 The improvement scheme aims to improve safety and reduce congestion at the current A46 / Lincoln Road T-junction by constructing a new three-armed roundabout and realigning the existing roads on the approaches.

 

 It was unfortunate that the  notification for this consultation was not received until 22nd May which was too late to get into the June edition of the Dunholme News and consequently few people knew about it.

However if you wish to  have more information, visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/roadworks.

Or contact  Charlotte Hughes. Assistant Project Leader

 Technical Services Partnership, Lincolnshire County Council

Crown House, Grantham Street, Lincoln, LN2 1BD

Customer Service Centre 01522 782070 . Direct Line 01522 555586.

 

The  existing road from Welton will be realigned further to the west  but leaving the existing road just as an access to the Centurion Garage. The  last bend on Welton Lane will be removed by the realignment which will also involve removal of the trees in the little copse on the west side. The whole area will be landscaped with new trees planted and it appears there may now be a path/cycle  track along this new stretch of road. I was informed that the proposed roundabout  at the junction of Lincoln Road (Dunholme) and the A46 will not happen. But the crest of the hill just past the Centurion Garage will be reduced by 2 Metres. The highways department has carried out computer modelling and the new layout and it is considered to be sufficient for all traffic needs up to at least 2035.
