A month to nominations & motion amendments

Tuesday, 27 July 2021

Woodcraft Folk published its preliminary agenda for the Annual General Meeting at the end of June.


The agenda includes the usual presentation of accounts and the Trustee's Annual Report. General Council are pleased to announce that despite the pandemic we did manage to perform better than first feared when groups closed in March 2020: launching #DreamBigAtHome, attracting new funding and achieving a near balanced financial outturn.

Promotional Materials For Groups and Districts

Monday, 12 July 2021

As a school term comes to an end and a new one is approaching, children and their parents will look for new activities to take part in in September. The last year was not the easiest for the recruitment of young people, however, we believe it has been improving and after 18 months of restrictions what better time to introduce new young people and volunteers to the wonderful world of Woodcraft Folk.

Span the World - mentor a European young person in London!

Friday, 2 July 2021

Woodcraft Folk will soon be hosting two more full-time volunteers from the EU, based in London for between five and twelve months from Autumn 2021. We are now seeking volunteer mentors, to help the volunteer settle into life in the UK. The volunteer will have daily supervision from WcF staff on their tasks. But the mentor is valuable as:
1) An unbiased sounding board
2) A friendly person with local knowledge
3) Someone to encourage self-reflection.
