Glasgow East End

Woodcraft Folk launched a new district in January 2016, as part of the New Groups project.

The district currently has one group, East End Elfins. Elfins are generally aged 6-9 years old, however, we welcome applications from any primary school aged children. An adult must accompany children under the age of 6 for the full session.

The group meets on Monday evenings during term time from 6pm - 7pm, inside the main gates of Alexandra Park, on Alexandra Parade. During the winter weather and dark nights we meet next door to the park, inside the hall at St Andrew's East Parish Church.

Visit our Facebook page: and see some of the fun activities and events we've shared together since last year. We ran a great BBQ in Alexandra Park in May - weather rarely gets in the way! 

The cost is £1.50 per child per session, and £1 per sibling (concessions available).  This covers the cost of materials, group registration fees and hall hire fees in winter.

The group is run by parents and non-parent volunteers. We rely on parents getting involved when they can to support the group with running the activities, admin, finance, and fundraising.

If your family would be interested in joining the group, or you would like to discuss volunteering, please contact Elaine at

The first session is free if you would like a taster to see how you enjoy it, and we plan our programmes collaboratively with input from all adults and young people. There are also many opportunities for training, as well as camps and hostel weekends.
