SVWF Committee

Stroud Valleys Woodcraft Folk is a democratic, co-operative organisation that encourages all members to become involved in leadership and decision-making processes. We have regular District Meetings where all groups are represented and which all members are invited to attend and speak.

As part of our Constitution, we have some members elected to the committee, with responsibility for certain aspects of the running of the District. The committee may occasionally meet to address particular issues and to come up with proposals to be submitted for approval at a district meeting.

General enquiries can be addressed to the District Administrator (not committee members)  Lis Parker: 07754 059768
