Tuesday, 16 October 2018


Hello! My name is Pip Sayers, I’m 22 and I’m a music teacher and performer. At the start of this month I was elected Chair of General Council, potentially making me the youngest chair of a trustee board in the country. I started my Woodcraft life as an Elfin in Bradford. One of my earliest memories of Woodcraft is being encouraged by my Elfin leader to perform on saxophone at the Christmas Merrymoot, a skill which has gone on to shape my education and now career.
