District Co-ordinator


Woodcraft Folk runs on the passion and energy of thousands of volunteers. For over eighty-five years, we've been working with children and young people to develop their self-confidence and ability to act in society. Volunteers are right at the heart of this work and we're always looking for more, to strengthen our groups and create new ones.

Hands In! group night activities

During this month of building our movement, there are loads of activities to be doing at group nights each week, so that right across the UK groups can explore some key themes and celebrate what Woodcraft means to us.

Some of the activities will be things you can do by linking up with other groups in your district - or your twin group, if you like. And some will involve creating something in your group to share with the rest of the movement.

Some things to do with your group are:

Hands In! regional quilts

We’re going to be making Woodcraft Folk patchwork quilts during Hands In! from 27th January to 4th March 2012 - aiming to end up with a quilt representing the groups and districts in each region.

During Hands In! Woodcraft Folk groups across the country are making squares to put together into big regional quilts – and we really hope you’ll join in too. Each square will say something about the group who made it (in a similar style to the ‘story quilt’ above), so the finished quilts will celebrate our movement and everyone who is part of it.

Hands In!

About Hands In!

Hands In! were UK-wide activities set up by the TREE Steering Group for the spring term (January to March), when groups across our movement have been doing activities to link us together as one. In the past  we've created beautiful quilts and had fun geocaching.

Your Park Farm

Voluteering at the Farm

It is important to remember that this is YOUR site too, Park Farm runs entirely through the work of volunteers from across the London and SE region, both those serving on the committee and those who turn up to help at our working weekends. A BIG thank you to all those who have contributed in the past, it really is appreciated. It would be great to have a few more people along though as many hands makes light work!
