Dunston Dossier

Independent Newsletter for Dunston, Lincolnshire


Dunston Village Hall Management Committee is deeply saddened by the death of Mary Lamyman. Mary had been an active member of the Village Hall Committee since it was formed in 1983.


Refurbishment of the hall is reaching the final phases. Thanks to grants from the Big Lottery Fund – Awards for All, Dunston Parish Council and the Bernard Sunley Foundation, the toilet facilities have been refitted to provide a unisex disabled toilet and baby change facility, modern sanitary ware and child accessible facilities.

In 2016 the kitchen will have a “make-over”, the main rooms will be re-decorated and the wooden floors re-varnished.


Dunston Village Hall has been our community centre since 1948. The refurbishments have improved the heating and facilities whilst preserving that retro style.


If you are looking for a venue for a children’s party, christening, family celebration, a venue for meeting, regular activity or running a course then contact the booking clerk on 01526 320810 to check on availability and arrange a time to look around the hall. Website:

As the weather warms up and families are visiting the play area again, IDEAS aim to complete Phase 1 before Easter, with a path from the Car Park to the equipment. The facilities can then be used by youngsters of all abilities, as well as improved access for buggies and mobility wheelchairs. IDEAS together with the £2,000 allocated by the Parish Council, have the funding to proceed. The plan to provide a goal end has not enough support, so regrettably, following the installation of the path and 'Thank you' board, IDEAS will cease and no further fund raising or installations will be carried out by the current Group.A Big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported our various fund raising activities over the past three years, and to the many sponsors and businesses who have given their unwavering support to this venture. To the youngsters of Dunston we hope you enjoy what IDEAS has provided - our legacy for your future. The IDEAS Committee: Jane, Diana, Pam, Pauline, Nick, Angy and Penny, AND all of the Young Ideas Team of fundraisers.
