The Wolverley Memorial Project would like to invite you to the Wolverley Handmade Christmas Fair On Sunday 25th November from 11am until 4pm.
With an amazing array of handcrafted gifts, Santa in his Grotto waiting to see our younger residents, mulled wine and mince pies for the grown-ups, this is a Christmas fair not to be missed!
Three years ago we embarked on an ambitious project to replace both Memorial Hall and Social Club, with a new purpose built facility. Each building had been built in the early 60’s in remembrance of Wolverley’s fallen from both World Wars.

We invite you to a very special Christmas Craft Fair on Sunday 10th December, in Wolverley Memorial Hall. We have brought together an exciting range of specially selected stalls featuring very individual artesian craft sellers. Treat yourself or someone special from a beautiful range of crafts and gifts. Enjoy some delicious homemade cakes and some very special mulled wine and mulled cider.
Our beautiful Christmas hamper is full of homemade Christmas treats will be raffled that afternoon, so be sure to buy a ticket to win this luxury Christmas prize.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without carols round the tree, and we have a lovely tree, donated by our kind friends at Bodenham Arboretum. Come and sing with us at 4pm, sip your hot mulled wine and sing a carol or two, knowing that Christmas will be a little bit more special.
Our Handmade Christmas Craft Fair is open at Wolverley Memorial Hall from 11am until 5pm, on Sunday 10th December, with carols round the tree at 4pm. This is another event brought to you by Wolverley Memorial Project.
We are pleased to announce the winner of the “Name our Ale” competition was Beryl Berry with her suggestion of “Memorial Mindblower”. There were lots of entries and this was voted the winner. The Memorial Mindblower ale has been specially brewed by our friends at Pig Iron Brewery and will be available at the Beer Festival for all visitors to try. Don’t forget to buy your Early Bird Discount Ticket for entrance to ALL THREE days of the festival and the best value drinks tokens offer to try “Wolverley Mindblower” along with a choice of over 50 different beers, ciders and gins!
We are inviting local businesses and individuals to sponsor a barrel of ale at our beer festival. It is a great way to get involved and help us raise some funds for the Memorial Projecy, as well as promoting your business to everyone visiting the three-day festival.
Sponsorship is just £35 per barrel! For this bargain price, we will promote your name at the festival on the barrel for all to see when twhen when they purchase a pint and in the programme of tasting notes, as well as on our website as a supporter of the project. You could even bring your friends along to sample your sponsored ale. Please contact us through the website, by email or our Facebook page to get your name on a barrel at this year’s Wolverley Beer Fest, and help us towards a new Memorial Hall.

We’ve had four exciting presentations from local architectural practices with their Concept Designs for the new Memorial Hall and Sports and Social Club development. All the designs are great, with lots of potential. It’s going to be a tough choice!
Now it’s up to you! We’re inviting everyone from the local community to have a say in which choice of design we go forward with. So please get involved.
Now remember, this is a concept design, not the finished plan, so we’re not looking at specifics, just which style, form and design you like the look of most. Which one you feel would work best for the local community and fit well within the village of Wolverley.
Remember, the new development is going to be there for many years to come, so your choice is for the future generations of Wolverley. It’s a big responsibility, but an exciting one too.
So have your say, get along to Wolverley Village Carnival on Saturday 2nd July where you can cast your vote. Visit the Wolverley Memorial Project tent and see the designs, chat to the team and most importantly cast your vote!

Merry Christmas from the Wolverley Memorial Project team!
