Neston Methodist Church, Park Street, Neston, CH64 3RB.
Telephone: 0151 336 8388.
Volunteer leader: Anne Jones.

In the Autumn of 2018, AGE UK decided to replace volunteer advisers with a telephone contact for many of their outlets. The local operation has been managed by Anne Jones, a resident of Neston, for some 24 years at the Methodist Church. A small group of people supported by Justin Madders MP decided to try and maintain the service for the local community – providing much needed support, advice and counselling.

Anne was prepared to continue, and with the support of two colleagues and a newly formed Committee, AGE UK was contacted. They accepted that Anne could continue to provide a service beyond their compass and indeed, supported the move with continued access to a telephone line.

The group was named Age Matters CH64 and, working from The Methodist Church on Monday and Wednesday mornings the group operates next to the ‘Tea Pot’ – a drop in café for local people. Working closely with Jackie Gorman, Anne is on hand to provide much needed support for the over 60’s in the CH64 area.

On 30 December 2023 it was announced that Anne Jones had been awarded the BEM in the King’s New Year Honours. A tribute to Anne can be seen here.

A small committee was set up to provide direction, support and fundraising activities for what is a small, voluntary Community Group Charity. Contact Anne on 0151 336 8388 or drop in between 9am and 12 noon on Monday or Wednesday.
