news from the office

Feb 29, 2016

The whole team was really pleased with how our first ever WWOOF UK calendar turned out and that so many of you wanted to buy it! We are planning another one for next year so keep that in mind when you are planning your festive giving; along with our gift memberships, which, of course, continue to be available throughout the year. We’ll soon be bringing you the results of our Winter Blues photo contest – thanks to everyone who took the time to send us their photos.

Instagram: @wwoofukLike you the WWOOF UK team is gearing up for another busy and, hopefully, productive year. We’re finding that our regional gatherings are increasing in popularity; RHCs will contact hosts about them as they are arranged and full details are posted on the forum for all logged in members to see.

You can follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/wwoofuk), Twitter (@wwoofuk) and now on Instagram (@wwoofuk) where a picture paints a thousand words, see right. We think the chickens are the best!

We’ve been working on some behind-the-scenes improvements and updates for our website to ensure it’s reliable and secure. There’s also been one development that’s available for everyone to see though; our new meet WWOOF UK page on the website introduces the staff team and directors as well as recognising the full extent of the WWOOF community. You’ll find it on the about us menu in the main menu of our home page: www.wwoof.org.uk
