80 Years Young

Friday, 14 February 2014

Newham Watersmeet Woodcraft are taking a whole year to celebrate their 80th birthday.

They've set themselves the challenge of doing 80 Great Things during 2014. These will include great things on group nights, great things on camps and great things for local communities and environments. A celebration of these is planned for November 2014.

Achievements so far include: the District has enjoyed a wander through the woods, the Elfins have written their own Woodcraft songs, the Pioneers have learnt the recovery position and the Venturers are planning a sponsored sleep out to raise funds for a homeless charity. They are making links with the local city farm, services for elders,  library services and conservation groups.

Coming up are a conservation day on Wanstead Flats, part of Epping Forest, events in local libraries and a Woodcraft sing along at Woodgrange Markets Food and Music festival in May.
