It is with a sad heart that we must report the passing away of John Marland (WINGFOOT) of Watford Woodcraft Folk.
John died on 31st October at the incredible age of 94. He was born in 1922 and was married to Kate.
We have secured funding from Children in Need to set up a new Elfin group in Glasgow to attract refugees
PhD studentship opportunity -
Oral History of the Woodcraft Folk
The University of Brighton is inviting applications for funded PhD studentship topics to commence in September 2017.
A successful programme for a Woodcraft group will include a range of activities inspired by our Aims & Principles. To help translating these big ideas into something that group leaders can put into practice, experienced Woodcraft leaders working with every age group have contributed to the creation of a set of age-appropriate outcomes linked to the Aims & Principles.
How to use these resources
Scottish Gathering is an opportunity for everyone involved with Woodcraft Folk in Scotland to come together, share what we have been doing in different parts of the country, build links, plan for the future (and socialise!). The programme will include a variety of workshops and our AGM with elections to the Scottish Committee.
Have fun with your Elfins this Autumn by doing some of the suggested outdoor activities:
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.
The Woodcraft Folk is hosting an international camp in 2020.
We are beginning the search for a site and would love to hear your suggestions. We will need a site which can accomodate up to 4000 people, but due to us camping in large circles, we will be looking for sites with quoted capacities of around 10 000 people.
