A Vision Fulfilled

We are delighted to announce that after nearly 3 years of planning, interrupted by the pandemic restrictions, we are opening our Revive Community Café at St John’s Methodist Church, Bloxwich, Walsall.

Our vision to create a community café has been made possible thanks to generous donations from the Veolia Environmental Trust, The National Lottery Community Fund, Methodist Insurance Company Ltd, Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury District of the Methodist Church, and many other donators and fund raisers. We are grateful to everyone for their support.

We plan to launch our brand new facilities with an Open Day on Saturday 2nd October when the café will be officially opened by David Frost. CBE. Deputy Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands and Councillor Rose Burley, the Mayor of Walsall.

As the café develops we hope it will be a busy welcoming inclusive space for all. Also we have formed a liaison with the local college to welcome students for work experience and possible employment. We have appointed a Café Manager, but as we are anticipating that the cafe will become busy at certain times we are looking to volunteers to support the café manager, to help supervise students and to welcome and talk to people attending the café.

A sincere thanks to all our sponsors who have supported this ambitious project.
