Welcome to the Ewelme web site

This website provides information for Ewelme residents and visitors alike: for anyone wanting to know about our beautiful, historic village.

This is not a "blog": we update information people want published as and when needed. The "Front Page" and "Newsflash" are used for short items of immediate interest.

If you think that there is something missing or a section that you can add to, then please contact us.

Ewelme Horticultural Society

We are holding our AGM on Wednesday, 2 April, at 6:30 pm in the Village Hall. This will be followed at 7:30 pm by an illustrated talk on The Chilterns. This is to be given by Jon Scourse, author of “The Chilterns”, who will also bring some of his books with him to sell at a reduced price. It should be a very interesting evening and we would be delighted if you would join us. There will be refreshments available and the entrance is £3.00.

The annual Plant Sale will be on Saturday, 10 May, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm in the Village Hall. There will be bedding plants, perennials, vegetable plants and hanging baskets. We use the same nursery each year as they always produce such marvellous plants and the prices are very competitive. Refreshments will be available and we shall also have a raffle.

Our annual outing this year takes us to Blenheim Palace Flower Show on 21 June. This is the second year that Blenheim Palace has hosted a Flower Show. There will be Show Gardens, a Grand Floral Pavilion, Floral Arrangements and many different nurseries and stalls for you to shop at. When you have seen enough, your ticket will allow you to go into The Palace, The Formal Gardens and The Pleasure Gardens. The coach will leave Ewelme Village Hall at 9:30 am and arrive back at 5:00 pm. The cost will be £24 inclusive. Seats need to be booked through Cynthia Winfield on 01491 835687 or myself on 01491 834111.

Ewelme Village Show will be held on 25 August on the Recreation Ground. It will be hard to follow the success of last year when we were so lucky to welcome Mary Berry. We will be sending out schedules to all the houses in Ewelme early in July. Once our weather has improved and Spring arrives we can start gardening in preparation for some of the winning exhibits!!!

As usual there will be two photographic classes at the Village Show and entries can be either monochrome or colour – the choice is yours!

Division IV class 55 ‘Something old, something new’

class 56 ‘Water, water everywhere’

Checking broadband speed

E-mail Print PDF

The various speed testers are perhaps confusing. The "Thinkbroadband.com" website may be more helpful. Try http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html

We're seeing a serious slow-down (50 Mbps > 5!) at certain times (typically the evenings) and if you can log a few TalkTalk, Aol, BT and Sky speeds for me I'll pursue. This is also being reported in other areas.

Apple's hacking security risk on iPhone, iPAD and Mac is being addressed but not advertised. Information from an Apple Genius Bar is that MacBook OSX users should upgrade from "Snow Leopard" to "Maverick". iPAD One has no upgrade path and will remain vulnerable. Please check your own situation with Apple.

Next event - Put this in your diary NOW and organise a table with your friends.
Saturday 26th April at 7:00 pm.
A village quiz with a French flavour. Food, drink and fun to raise funds to host the Nolay visit next year and to reacquaint everyone with the pleasures of our twinned village in the French region of Burgundy.
This is NOT a French-centric quiz. Expect an (un)usual wide range of creative questions from our village quiz-meister, Geoff Watts.
Teams of up to six per table. Tickets - £10 a head from The Village Store, Geoff Watts (ewelme@btopenworld.com) and other good twinning-minded people around the village. It would really help us if you bought your tickets in advance and not on the night.

Your ticket includes a wonderful French-flavoured supper.

and exercise your vocabulary by exploring the Nolay website for latest news.
