 Woodcraft Reaching Out

Southwark Woodcraft run a combined Elfin and Pioneer inner city group on the Cossall Estate in South East London. We meet on Monday nights at Cossall Tenants Hall, where children play and learn and have fun. Many children come on their own, without their parents; some bring £1 subs and many do not. Some of the children are feisty and independent, some love circles and structure and some find them difficult.
