Case study: starting a new group

Margaret O'Byrne from Norwich Thorpe Hamlet talks us through the evolution of her group and what it's like to start a new one.

About 9 years ago I started a Venturer group with a friend. Initially someone just approached me and asked if i would like to bring my daughter to a group and possibly help run the group. At the beginning we met in someone's house and it was all very girly and craft based. Later we transferred to my house and soon the group was too big and we moved on to a local school. As we grew my eldest daughter stopped attending but my youngest continued and so i kept attending as a leader. Over the years the group has also changed and we developed Elfin and Pioneer sections.

Learn to Lead: Woodcraft training videos

This is a great set of short videos featuring Woodcraft volunteers. They explain all the important aspects of running a group and District, in a really clear and friendly way.
