Cora Weaver


The original Grapevine was a printed parish magazine founded by Rev David Martin in the 1980s and distributed free of charge to every home in the villages of Guarlford, Madresfield and Newland. The magazine was funded by donations and advertising revenue.

The October/November 2022 edition was the last printed edition by well known local historian Cora Weaver who had edited the Grapevine for 20 years.

On-line edition

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and rising costs the magazine was published on-line in colour with a limited number of paper copies supplied to those without Internet access. Cora stood down as editor of the Grapevine in January 2023 but no-one stepped forward to take over.


Cora has now produced an on-line only version of the Grapevine in glorious colour. She would like this ‘new’ Grapevine to be a community asset and would welcome notices, requests, offers, articles etc.


Please feel free to circulate the magazine among your friends and neighbours.

How to place information in the Grapevine

Contributors are asked to send any necessary amendments, advertisements and articles, preferably by email, to Cora using the contact information in the Grapevine.


At present you can find the Grapevine on the Guarlford website.


Plans are also being considered for distributing copies by email.
