Bring banners, songbooks, WCF shirts and t-shirts. We'll march together and play parachute games in Hyde Park at the end. Other families and children are welcome to join us.
Young Woodcraft members from Spelthorne introduced their project, saying “there is a lot of negative press in the national news and in the local press about young people, and we wanted to show ... what we could do as a group. We think young people are generally very concerned about their community and it is only the minority of negative actions that get reported more often than the positive actions of young people.”
It can be quite a daunting thing to run an assembly, but it is a really good way to get a much wider group of people involved in the issues you might normally discuss at you Woodcraft Folk group. Doing it with some friends, other woodcraft folk members for example, can make it much easier, but whether you do it alone or with friends, hopefully you will find these tips useful.
Many young people are taking part in the campaign against education fees and cuts, here is a poem written by one DF, Isabel from Cambden Woodcraft, contributed as part of the Kettled Generation blog:
My feet are numb
From marching in a crowd of banners and flags
