PR & Media Guide

We've launched #DreamBigAtHome!

Our new lockdown website has hundreds of activities and games to do at home, weekly challenges to try and a regular programme of live workshops and events online, as well as information on how our groups can operate during the COVID-19 outbreak.


The guide below is for Woodcraft Folk groups and districts who want to get coverage in their local press. It could be to publicise the launch of a new group, recruit new volunteers, or celebrate other Woodcraft activities. 

If you've got any advice to share from your own experiences of working with local press, let us know via

The guide includes:

  • Making use of the media 
  • Writing press releases 
  • What’s worth publicising 
  • Making use of our greatest asset 
  • What if a report is wrong? 
  • Ethics and child protection
