Vote for your favourite Membership Badge design for 2017

Wednesday, 19 October 2016

Earlier this year we asked our members to take part in this year’s Membership Badge competition. The theme was ‘Woodcraft Folk in the year 2106’.

Last year was a chance for reflection and looking back at our history. So we thought this time we’d like our members to look to the future and imagine Woodcraft Folk in another 90 years.

Ground Control to Major Tom 

This summer, Reigate and Redhill District descended on Park Farm, a campsite run by Woodcraft Folk. This was a new site for us, and a new direction in the theming of camps!

We have tended to theme a camp about a local place or historical person – but this time we went with broadening our cultural knowledge into the relatively recent history – back into the youth of some of the leaders! Prehistory to the kids!
