Founded by Lady Whitehead on the 5th December 1922, Everton & Lymore WI will be celebrating our first one hundred years in 2022.
Our group meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 2.30 pm in St Mary’s Church Hall, Branwood Close, Everton, SO41 0LU.
We also have a craft group who meet monthly on the fourth Wednesday and actively participate at the New Forest Show and other craft projects.
We are part of the Lymington Group of WI’s and join with them and other Hampshire WI’s for skittles competition, quizzes and other activities.
Our WI has a long association with the wider Everton community, planting two Horse Chestnut trees many years ago, our Gardening Group continues to tend the planters on the Village Green.
All prospective new members will receive a warm welcome within our friendly group – please email email@example.com for further information.
