The Jambusters WI - April 2018


The Jambusters Tuesday night treat in March was an entertaining talk from James, owner of the Ticklebelly Lane Bakery& Tea House in Lincoln. As an institution well known for its cakes we rose to the 'no whisk, cream challenge' with gusto! The team daring to tempt fate and risk wearing their endeavours were delighted to be awarded a freshly baked Ticklebelly cake as their prize. Thanks to James, the Jambuster ladies now have a new baking trick up their sleeves.

Huge thanks to our refreshment fairies for their delicious selection of both sweet and savory treats.


We're on the move for one month only, meeting on April 3rd at Dunholme Village Hall usual start time 7.30pm. A chilled out evening is ahead of us, learning about the history and techniques of hand reflexology courtesy of Anne Gayfer.

On Tuesday 1st May, we will be back at our usual haunt, the school hall, where our hands will be put to work flower arranging.

Dunholme Camera Club

 Well hopefully you have all got over the "Beast from the East" what a covering we had, but of course it gave the members of the camera club a chance to get out with their cameras and get some great photo's of the snow. One thing that I personally saw quite a few pictures of was the wildlife pictures, mainly pictures of the birds who struggle to get food when we have a quick snap like that but with a little help from those that put food out I hope that most of them made it through the rough weather. Snow is one of the harder things to photograph and get the exposure right because it is so bright it causes the cameras metering system to underexpose so causing incorrect colours within the image. If you tried photographing the snow and had problems them come along to the camera club and get up to speed with your camera and techniques.

 Right what happened last month at the club? We were to have a discussion with ideas for the 2019 programme but it was cancelled due to the bad weather, it will be held at a later date. We then had another club competition, this one was a digital competition, all images were shown on the club screen and the judge made a superb job of judging them and coming up with a winner for the evening. Our final meeting was a "Portrait Evening" where I led the evening showing the members how to capture some great portrait images and everyone certainly enjoyed the evening.

 Moving on to this moths meetings:- 5th April we are having an interclub competition with Louth Camera Club judged by Diane Seddon, may the best club win (Hopefully Dunholme

Dunholme Lodge Charity Open Garden,

National Garden Scheme; May 13th and July 1st 2018  11- 5pm

We have been opening our gardens for a few years now. This will be the seventh  time with the National Garden Scheme . We raise money for our own church, St Chads 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 , plants etc , vintage tractors in May 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
