Update from General Council November 2021

General Council recently met at Lockerbrook Farm Outdoor Centre. This was their first face to face meeting since February 2020.

It was fantastic to be able to invite new Trustees:

  • Thomas Boxall (Eastbourne)
  • Tamsin Pearce (Bath)
  • Jeni Dixon (Lewisham & Greenwich)

The meeting was a mixture of workshops, small group activities and discussions. General Council received the latest financial report and approved the 2022 budget, which includes a number of investments in group support, centre development, fundraising and communication capacity.

General Council members shared ideas for celebrating Woodcraft Folk’s centenary and confirmed their commitment to host a major camp in 2025. The ‘Heading to 100’ Working Group are already making plans on how to celebrate Woodcraft Folk’s history with a series of events and publications, including a Symposium in May 2022 focusing on Woodcraft Folk’s motto – Span the World with Friendship.

During the meeting General Council review and updated policy documents relating to safeguarding, health & safety, recruitment of ex-offenders and the reporting of significant incidents.
