Lockerbrook Celebrates 50th

Thursday, 3 July 2014

Hello one and all,

Woodcraft NCS - What was it all about?


For four years, Woodcraft Folk ran the NCS (National Citizen Service) programme for young people aged 15 to 17 in Wakefield or Bradford. NCS is a programme all about getting away from home (on residential trips!), doing really adventurous and challenging activities, meeting new people and creating a fantastic community action project to help out your local area.

The centre is only a short scramble from Stoodley Pike and its location in the hills offers a perfect place to go for a tranquil and relaxing trip away.
