Glasgow Southside Elfins


Phone: 07881 615470
Location: Shawlands United Reformed Chuch, Moss Side Road, Glasgow, G41 3TP
Meeting time: Wednesdays at 17:30

Fun and friendly elfin group for children aged 6-9 in the cosmopolitan southside of Glasgow.

After school activities for P1, P2 and P3 children that involve nature, co-operation, learning about your environment and lots more. We meet in the same place and time as the younger and older Woodcraft Folk groups. In the summer and autumn terms activities are in Queens Park (when weather allows) and in the winter and spring term we meet in Shawlands United Reformer Church Hall, Shawlands, Glasgow Southside.

Time: 5:30pm-6:45pm every Wednesday during term time

Cost: £5 a month. This covers our venue, material, refreshments and registration costs.

All leaders are volunteers. Please get in touch if you are interested in volunteering - we have lots of roles to suit everyone. Parents/guardians are encouraged to get involved but if you want to leave you child for the session that is completely fine.

We go camping and have an annual winter hostel weekend with all the Glasgow Southside District. So far we have been to InveraryMoffatCrianlarachPitlochry and are going to New Lanark in November.

Every term we take part in a countryside walk with our Woodcraft groups from around Glasgow. This is always a good time to meet new friends and catch up with old ones and enjoy some fresh air.
