In July the future King George V and Queen Mary visited Wolverhampton and 157 children from Worfield went to see them. Sidney Wilson organised the six waggons, in which seats had been made, and they left Ackleton at 7.45. This meant that those from Worfield had to leave at 6.30am. They went through Pattingham and at the Mermaid stopped for a glass of milk and a scone. Twenty minutes was allowed for refreshment and exercise. They left Wightwick at 10.15 for Wolverhampton, where they stopped at the top of Compton Road and met Mr and Miss Wilson. At 11.45 they drew up in a place specially reserved for them at Chapel Ash.

A water-cart providing water was monopolised by the children, who were very thirsty. At 12.50pm the procession passed and the representatives of  Worfield parish gave every practical expression in their intense loyalty.

At 1pm the whole party was provided with refreshment: sandwiches, cake and  lemonade which was amply appreciated, and at 1.45pm a start was made. amidst much cheering for Mr Sidney and Miss Wilson, to drive through the principal streets, seeing the decorations en route. Wightwick was again reached at 3.15 and tea was provided at 4 o'clock, teachers and friends rendering invaluable assistance. While at Wightwick the Royal Party drove by , and were again welcomed by loud and hearty cheering. At 5.20 the children left, returning through Pattingham to Patshull Pool, after each one had been presented with a book in memory of the event, the gift of Mr Wilson.

On the return journey the Royal Party passed the children, who cheered them loudly, but even more loudly as Lord Dartmouth passed by waved his hand to them until he passed out of sight.

All arrived at Patshull Pool at 7.30 and thence went by various routes to their respective homes; some waggons going to Chesterton, Hilton and Worfield, others to the Ackleton District.
