Harrow Woodcraft Folk celebrated their 90th Anniversary in February!
A special celebratory design has been created for the anniversary by a Harrow member to be worn on Folk t-shirts. The design features a badger and heather, a tribute to the names of the founder members John and Edith Colbert.
The first group in Harrow was started in the Co-op Hall in Kenton on February 7th 1932. John, Edith and their three children were among the first members and they adopted the Woodcraft names of Badger and Heather and went on to launch the Lone Pine Fellowship. From these beginnings, Harrow Woodcraft Folk was born. John and Edith were known for their dedication to Woodcraft Folk famously keeping the Lone Pine Fellowship running during the 2nd World War!
Harrow Woodcraft Folk highlights have been actively participating in International camps were delegations from around the world joined with Woodcrafters from all over Britain in reaffirming their dedication to work for a peaceful world inspiring and empowering young people along the way.
Over the years, Harrow Woodcraft Folk have supported the national movement in campaigning on key issues concerning the environment, sustainability, peace and climate change.
Woodcraft Folk want to thank all members past and present, who by participating and contributing made it possible for Harrow Folk to reach and celebrate its milestone in its continuing commitment to ‘Spanning the World with Friendship’.
