Co-op Fortnight is Coming Up!

Thursday, 18 June 2020

Co-op Fortnight is organised by Co-operatives UK, sponsored by some of the UK’s most successful co-operatives and brought to life by co-ops across the UK. 

Launched in 2010, Co-operatives Fortnight has gone from strength to strength. Woodcraft Folk has strong links with Co-operatives across the UK and this year we will be celebrating Co-op Fortnight with lots of fun and engaging sessions. This years theme for Coop Fortnight is #KeepCooperating. 

The fortnight takes place from 22nd June - 5th July. Our dedicated page on our #DreamBigAtHome website will go live on Saturday 20th July filled with activities that relate to all things cooperative that people can take part in at home. 

We are hosting lots of live sessions over the fortnight, some of which we are lucky enough to have guest faciliatators from Co-op Groups and Co-ops Heritage Trust as well as our staff and volunteers leading sessions too. Schedule as follows:
