We are grateful to the Co-operative Group who support Woodcraft Folk nationally and  provide grant funding which supports the running of the St Albans District Woodcraft Folk groups. In 2013 the group received additional funding through the Coop Community Fund for which we are very grateful. This will provide camping equipment which will assist greatly our growing group at camps in 2013 and beyond.
