A Circle of Equality

This song was composed by young people and adults at Woodcraft Folk's Development Conference in January 2011. Linda composed the melody.

Words of Freedom

This song was written by young people at Woodcraft Folk's Development Conference in January 2011. It's sung to the tune of 'Let it be'.

When I find myself in times of trouble,
Woodcraft Folk empowers me.
Speaking words of freedom,
Let it be.
And in the face of waving batons,
We’ve friendship, peace and unity.
Speaking words of freedom,
Let it be.

Let it be… [x4]
Speaking words of freedom, let it be.
[Repeat]

Vegan menu and recipe

Below is the menu and recipes from Northern Winter Wonderland 2010, which was an entirely vegan 3-night event KP'd by DF Becca Dye. The recipes include:

  • Three bean chilli with rice
  • Minestrone soup
  • Vegan cakes

Spelthorne Action Project

Young Woodcraft members from Spelthorne introduced their project, saying “there is a lot of negative press in the national news and in the local press about young people, and we wanted to show ... what we could do as a group. We think young people are generally very concerned about their community and it is only the minority of negative actions that get reported more often than the positive actions of young people.”

Welcome to Venturers leaflet

Below you can download the Welcome to Venturers leaflet, which was created by young people in the TREE Communications Group to help anyone moving up from Pioneers into Venturers, or who has recently arrived in Venturers. 

The leaflet is A4 size, in two parts - the inside and the outside. Download them both and photocopy them so they're on each side of an A4 page. To make the leaflet, fold each of the side panels in, starting with the right one as you look at the inside. 

Transition Support - welcoming new group members

 

Take a look at the PDF below if you want ideas on how to help young people move from one age group to the next. Transition Support Ideas has activities for groups to do before, during and after the transition to try and make it as smooth as possible, and generally keep groups within a district in touch with each other. If you've got any good ideas to add to it, send them to tree@woodcraft.org.uk - we'd love to hear them.

Make a bird box

We did this with our venturer group

I pre prepared the components by sawing up some excess floorboards we had

The venturers then nailed it all together, producing one bird box each

See: http://www.bto.org/nnbw/make.htm

Nb I reckon the base should be 150x 150
