Thank you Catherine

Thursday, 17 December 2020

The Cudham Centre Committee and volunteers join Woodcraft Folk’s Trustees and staff in thanking Catherine McCarthy for her dedicated service at Cudham.


For more than 12 years Catherine has put her heart and soul into making Cudham a welcoming and safe environment for all. Catherine has always welcomed groups with a warm smile and if they are lucky cake or apple crumble! Catherine’s passion for Woodcraft Folk and supporting children and young people has given a whole generation of Woodies a fun and supportive Cudham experience.


Under Catherine’s leadership the centre introduced the first Elfin Sleepover, which has become a highlight in Cudham’s calendar ever since - including going online during the current COVID-19 restrictions. Catherine has worked tirelessly alongside volunteers to introduce both big and small changes at the centre, some of the highlights include:


  • Venturer & DF working weekends

  • The workshop cabin

  • Weekly Wednesday volunteering sessions

  • The bathroom redevelopment project

  • An active committee, with several social and fundraising events along the way


We will all hold fond memories of our time at Cudham with Catherine and would like to thank her wholeheartedly for everything she has done for Cudham and Woodcraft Folk.


It is impossible for Catherine to contact each of you but she is very thankful for all the friendship shown to her over the years. If anyone would like to keep in touch or send a personal message directly to her please email cudham@woodcraft.org.uk subject ‘message for Catherine’ we will forward.
