Promotional Materials For Groups and Districts

Monday, 12 July 2021

As a school term comes to an end and a new one is approaching, children and their parents will look for new activities to take part in in September. The last year was not the easiest for the recruitment of young people, however, we believe it has been improving and after 18 months of restrictions what better time to introduce new young people and volunteers to the wonderful world of Woodcraft Folk.
