Good News in Wolverley Village

1. St John the Baptist Church
St John's Church is open every day from about 8.30am to 4.30pm (though sometimes later) and we welcome everyone who wants to visit: to look around, pray or sit and think. Every Sunday we meet at 11am (though it's 9.30am on a 5th Sunday). 1st Sunday of each month - Communion, 2nd Sunday - Worship 4 All, families are especially welcome, 3rd Sunday - Communion, 4th Sunday - Morning Prayer and 5th Sunday - Communion.

2. The Queen’s Head Pub
The Queen’s Head is well known for its music events held here as well as its reasonably priced but tasty food and its well kept ale. I love their veggie food. (The following is an odd recommendation but it is my experience as a vicar!)
But also I want to recommend this venue for the reception/wake held after funerals. People often feel chilled and in need of warmth and food after a funeral and the staff here give real hospitality. Firstly, they give you your own room which has reasonable access. And then when you arrive, there’s always tea, coffee and little chocolates ready and waiting for you as well as the bar open. No hassle, no having to order, it’s made ready. Then their finger buffet always is fresh, the bread is fresh and the mini-bites are freshly cooked. The people serving are kindly and helpful. For a wake I recommend the Queens Head.

3. The Old Village Store - Country Tea Room and Grocer
I recommend this for its excellent food. My friend and I recently had lunch there. I had onion soup with a brie and pear sandwich and my friend had a cheese and fig+cinnamon toastie. These were tasty and full of filling. But it was the side salad which particularly impressed me. There was: lettuce, pineapple, melon, orange, peach, thinly sliced radish, finely cut onion and kiwi. Wow! We then had cake: cherry and chocolate cake, tiffin and tea - cakes were delicious. Helpful service and brightly coloured table clothes made it welcoming. Try it.
