Grapevine

What is Grapevine?

Grapevine is a bi-monthly publication, for the people of Wombourne and it’s surrounding villages, with a circulation in excess of 1,700 copies.  It is produced by a committee formed from members of the various village churches, under the Chairmanship of Jan Glover (Tel: 01902 894756) and Acting Editor Olly Cadman (Tel: 01902 897964) and is distributed throughout the area by a group of volunteers, organised by Nigel Welch (Tel: 01902 324111).

What is its format and content?

The magazine which generally contains 28 pages is non-denominational and contains many articles of general interest, together with information on church services, events organised throughout the local area and many useful advertisements and contact addresses.  Grapevine is produced in both A4 format (with at least two pages in colour) and also (on request) as a CD for those with poor sight.  The annual cost of the publication is £6.00 for six issues.  To ensure that you do not miss out on obtaining a copy of the publication it can be pre-ordered and delivered to your home by contacting our Distribution Manager Nigel Welch (Tel: 01902 324111).
