A Summer of Fun in the Eastern Region!

Thursday, 22 August 2019

Even with the great British weather, when summer comes around it seems like the perfect time to get outdoors and try out those activities which are much less appealing during the winter months. Many of our groups head out on camps and trips to new destinations across the country (or continent) or to favourite sites closer to home. 

#EverybodyWelcome at Woodcraft Folk!

Friday, 23 August 2019

As part of our growth project in East Anglia, our team of Development Officers have been delivering outreach sessions at a range of schools in the region. These sessions provide children who are not involved in our groups on a regular basis with an opportunity to benefit from activities structured around our aims and principles. In several locations we’ve been delivering these session in SEN schools - schools for children and young people with special educational needs.

Yorkhill and Kelvingrove Community Gala Day

Wednesday, 14 September 2016

On Sunday September 11th Kelvingrove Woodcraft Folk joined forces with the Glasgow Children's Wood to run the children's activities at the Yorkhill and Kelvingrove Community Gala Day.  About 300 people attended including about 100 children and young people.

Publicity Guidance

There are lots of ways to publicise your group. Here are some of the techniques we know work.

Don’t forget that most people won’t sign up after seeing one poster or flyer. Use as many of these approaches as you have time for, and if possible, use together with outreach activity.

Outreach stall guidance

Stalls at community events mean you can target your outreach depending on the type of event you go to.

Playout Guidance

Parks and green spaces are great locations to give families their first taste of Woodcraft Folk. Why not plan one off or regular park activities to recruit new children and families to your group?

Schools outreach guidance

Running an assembly about Woodcraft at your local school gives you a captive audience, and following that up with an after school family taster will mean you can talk to parents and carers too.

Outreach guidance

Face to face outreach sessions are a great way of promoting your group. Families who have met and had fun with you are far more likely to come back than if they’ve just read a flyer.
