Group Leaders

Great changes being made to the Woodcraft website

Friday, 28 September 2018

Behind the scenes staff and volunteers have been quietly working on the resources section of the website. After receiving your feedback we’ve made attempts to make this section more user friendly and we hope you agree.


The resources section has now been broken down into the following categories and easy to use buttons to help you find what you’re looking for. 

The new categories are:
