Pioneers on the radio!

Thursday, 31 January 2019

On Tuesday 29th January St Neots Pioneers took to Huntingdon Community Radio to promote their group to new members in the area. The Pioneers - Daisy-Mae (age 11) and Ethan (age 10) did a wonderful job of explaining what Woodcraft Folk is and what they get up to at their groups. The Pioneers were asked about their favourite activities that they do at Woodcraft Folk, Ethan really enjoys the crafts "last week we made a willow lantern at our group night" and Daisy-Mae spoke about how the Bivvies on camp are her favourite part of Woodcraft Folk.
