A CHILDREN’S activity group in Kingswinford is celebrating turning 50.

High Acres Woodcraft Folk was founded half a century ago by Bob Sandall, who is still very firmly at the helm.

Across four groups, they cater for children from the age of five up to 18, with around 80 youngsters attending their sessions on a weekly basis.

One of High Acres’ aims is to teach children about the outdoor world and they organise several outdoor activities a year visiting hostels and using the group’s campsite at Kinver.
