    Results from the Troop Forum

    Filed under: Troop Nights;

    A few weeks ago we held a troop forum during our Troop meeting, which helps the leaders understand what everyone is enjoying and how we could improve the scouting activities.  The night was broken down into a number of parts, likes and dislikes, what games do you like playing? and what badges would like like to attempt? and activities you would like to do?  All this information would then be used to feed into the next few terms meetings.

    Firstly the likes and dislikes, each patrol was asked to put likes and dislikes onto large pieces of paper which were pinned to one of the notice boards. Each Scout then had a vote for the likes and dislikes which were then discussed about what they liked and how we could improve on the dislikes.
