Exciting opportunities + support for departing leaders

13 March 2018

A couple of notes for you below.

As ever let me know if you need any assistance relating to growth (whether leaders or Beavers/Cubs/Scouts/Explorers) just let me know as I am here to help.

Exit surveys

In an effort to better understand why leaders leave I have created an exit survey. This can be completed online (where I get all of the information directly – goo.gl/epNkQk) or as a paper version which provides you with some insight as well.

Opportunity for reduced price entrance to Whipsnade Zoo

Ticket prices for youth groups start at just £9.50*, saving up to 50%* off the standard admission price for a child at the gate. We also make sure that we look after the leader and for every 10 youth group members that come into the Zoo, your group will receive one FREE adult ticket.

We can also provide free posters and leaflets to help you to promote your visit as well as a free risk assessment too.

Book your visit today at zsl.org/youthgroups or call 0344 225 1826

Potential International Link

From: Francesco Hauber

My name is Francesco and I am a Scout Leader with the AGESCI association of Italy, more specifically located in Latina, Lazio, near Rome.

I am writing because one of our 6-man Squadriglia (more or less equivalent to your patrol, 11-16 year olds) has expressed the wish to obtain an International patrol badge. To do so, we want to set up an intercultural exchange with kids their own age to share their culture and learn about other cultures.

Specifically, we were thinking to host a patrol of yours for our regional event called “San Giorgio”.

During this event, all patrols in the southern area of Lazio live together for 3 days (28-29-30 of April), cooking and sleeping in tents, however we are totally open to different suggestions or time frames.

In exchange then we would like your group to host one our Squadriglia.

If you are interested, we are glad to set up a Skype call to better discuss this exchange.

Can’t wait to hear back from you guys!
