Everton & Lymore WI

In recent times we have had a makeover and our image is no longer, the Women’s Institute, we are Everton & Lymore WI. and we enjoy being part of the National Federation of WI’s with all the opportunities that it represents.

The WI is the longest established group in the village and have enjoyed continuous membership since 1922, we will be celebrating our Centenary in 2022.

We are a friendly, diverse group with many interests that meet at 2.30pm in St Mary’s Hall on the third Wednesday of each month. As members of the Hampshire Federation and our Lymington Group of WI’s, we regularly take part in training and events giving us the opportunity to meet up with friends old and new in other WI groups. Our monthly craft group enjoys demonstrations, sharing skills with each other and preparing our exhibits for the New Forest Show.
At our main meeting each month we have a large selection of speakers on many different subjects and an annual summer outing – which will probably include a cream tea!

The WI has a long association with the wider Everton community participating in the Summer Fete and tending the planters on the Village Green.

All prospective members will receive a warm welcome within our friendly group – please email evertonpres@hampshirewi.org.uk

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 look 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)

The Boules pitch is next to the Pavilion situated on Frys Lane. It is accessed via the Recreation ground. It is currently used by the Everton Petanquers on Sundays and some weekday evenings. For more information contact Dave Wakefield 07443 348275

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.

Everton Ladies Evening Group (LEGS)

This independent and unaffiliated Group was formed about 45 years ago to offer an opportunity for all ladies of all ages in and around Everton to come together and socialise. By charging a nominal amount (£3) for attending each meeting, which covers hall rental, speakers’ costs and refreshments, it is self-supporting and is not subsidised.

We meet on the first Monday evening of each month from 7.30 to 9.15 and offer a wide range of speakers and home-made entertainment as well as the occasional outing from time to time. Proceeds of a small raffle held at each meeting enable us to support a local charity at the end of the year. Our two-monthly ‘Ladies Who Lunch’ events at local restaurants are always popular and well attended.

Originally, meetings were held in members’ homes, but as numbers increased a permanent venue was sought and for many years now St Mary’s Church Hall has been the Group’s meeting place.   LEGS is very well supported and attendance averages between 30 and 50 at each meeting.  A poster is displayed outside the Post Office to advertise our monthly meetings. You can contact Carrie on 01590 644252 or email her at carriekayeathome@gmail.com. ALL Ladies are most welcome to join us.

St Mary’s Church Activities

Family Tea is held once a month at 4.00 pm in the Church Hall. If you are interested in Family Tea please contact Myra 643615

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 Gillian on 644739 or Vera Peters on 642981 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 Gillian and they will arrange the lift.

Elizabeth and her team, both in the kitchen and in the hall, continue to provide 40 delicious Friendship Lunches every 3rd Tuesday. A number of our guests now worship together in the Church before we go into the hall for our lunch. Our guest list is full but each month one or two people are unable to come. Gillian then fills 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

In August, for several years, we have had a Holiday at Home. If you have been on holiday with us before then you would receive an invitation to come on holiday again when we organise another holiday at home. . If you did not join us last time, and think you will want to come with us next time, do contact us as spaces are limited on the holiday! Gillian 644739

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
