Everton Wine Appreciation Group

Tony Dashwood  has submitted the following summary of his ideas for a new Group:-

Everton Wine Appreciation Group

I am aiming to form a wine appreciation group for anyone with an interest in wine and wishing to find out more by mutually exploring and learning in a reasonably structured but casual manner. The idea would be to meet once a month and rotate the meeting place around member’s homes, the monthly host would provide light snacks. Each member would bring a bottle of wine although the type would be preselected to follow a particular topic, which may be comparing new world wines with old, grape varieties, wines from a particular country or any subject related to wine.

If anyone has any interest in joining this group please contact Tony Dashwood on 01590 643959, 07900 888425 or email me on tony.dashwood@yahoo.co.uk

Everton Ramblers

Everton Ramblers Association

We walk twice a month, generally on the second Tuesday and fourth Thursday.

Circular walks start at 10.30am at designated Car Parks, mostly in the New Forest. Routes take an average 3 hours covering from 4 – 6 miles. Our walks average well over 20 participants.

A popular innovation is the summer Evening Walks starting from a pub car park to which we return for refreshments or food, as appropriate.

We arrange three social events annually:- a skittles evening in November, annual lunch in January and an American supper in July.

The club is run by three honorary officers and a committee comprising walk leaders and those assisting as back-ups.

For more information please contact Mervyn Hughes on 01590 642509 or email mervhughes@me.com

We lookl forward to welcoming you to our informal and friendly walking group, now in its 30th year. We have a poster at the Everton Post Office where you can see us in full colour

Boule (petanque)

Due to a fall in numbers the boule group has been wound up. We cannot play when only three people turn up.

The pitch (terrain) is still there, all the sets of equipment are there, but not enough players.

If anybody can muster a few friends who are interested enough to restart the group, please contact Alan Paice on 01590 644901 for more information.

Everton Bridge Club

If you are interested in coming along to meet us and hopefully join our Club you will find all our details on our web page at www.bridgewebs.com/evertonbc.

Everton Community Association

All residents of Everton are members of the Everton Community Association. The minutes of the 2014 Everton Community Association AGM (which took place on December 1st, 2014) can be downloaded here:

The ECA Committee meets 6 times each year and visitors are always welcome. The meetings are held in the Everton Social Club at 7.15pm on the third Tuesday of  January, March, May, July, September & November.

St Mary’s Church Activities

The After School Club is for all 7-11 year olds who would like to meet together in St Mary’s hall on Tuesdays from 3.30-4.45pm. We meet in term time but not on 4th Tuesday of month when it is Messy Church. We have refreshments on arrival, then play various games before joining together for discussion of a Bible story and then doing some craft. If you are aged 7-11 do come in one Tuesday if you would like to see what we are doing.

We are sure there are people living in the village who cannot come to Friendship coffee on a Tuesday morning because they are unable to get there without transport. We want to begin regular transport on Tuesday mornings. We would pick you up at 10.30 am and then take you home by 11.30 am. When it is Friendship Lunch Club we collect a number of our guests so do please ring me on 644739 or Vera Peters on 644729 if you would like a lift. If you know someone in the village, maybe a neighbour who you think might like a lift, do please encourage them and if they would like to come do please ring Vera or I and we will arrange the lift.

Cilla and her team, both in the kitchen and in the hall, continue to provide 60 delicious Friendship Lunches every 3 rd Tuesday. A number of our guests now worship together in the Church before we go into the hall for our lunch. As usual our guest list is full but each month one or two people are unable to come. I then fill those places from our reserve list so do please ask for a place on the reserve list if you are not already on that list. Gillian 644739

Did you come to our Holiday at Home last August ? If you did you will receive an invitation to come on holiday again this summer. If you did not join us last year, and think you will be wanting to come with us this year, do contact me as spaces are limited on the holiday ! Gillian 644739

All of our events are available to all local residents. Please contact John  Wigglesworth for more details 01590 642556

Neighbourhood Watch

Interest has been shown in resurrecting the Neighbourhood Watch scheme for Everton. To get this off the ground we need someone to act as Overall Coordinator. If anyone is interested, please contact us through the website, or Bob Cockburn at bobcockburn@yahoo.co.uk 01590 645460

No Cold Calling Zones

The following roads are covered by the NCCZ scheme and have external signage installed.

Wainsford Road – part,  Frys Lane, Everlea Close, Harts Way, Beacon Close, Fox Field, Golden Crescent – part, Crossways, Old Christchurch Road – part, Yeovilton Close, Laburnum Drive, Plantation, Cedar Drive, Cherry Tree Close, Ash Grove, Lime Grove and Knightcrest Park.
