Scouting & Guiding Feedback

Sunday 15th May 2016 - 12:29 Very many thanks for allowing us to visit
A great big THANK YOU from WOODLANDS Beaver Scouts.
They all had a fantastic time yesterday.

Monday 25th April 2016 - 11:28 Wow- what can I say!
Our leaders and adults had an easy day and our girls were so well behaved because they were kept so busy. The girls learned so much through play. All of the centre's staff were amazing and especially the science show at the end of the day. To say the girls were engrossed is an understatement!
I will certainly visit again in the not too distant future and I have already recommended The Centre to leaders in other areas.

Just wanted to say thank you for looking after us during our visit on Thursday.

The Cubs had a fantastic time doing all the interactive experiments and the Truss bridge building.

Monday 24th November 2014 - 23:20 Perfect Combination
I just wanted to say thank you very much indeed for a fantastic afternoon/evening for all our Scouting families. I have had some lovely emails from parents saying that they had all had such a great time. It's nice when adults and children are both happy, and both get something out of it. Organising a big family day out was a new venture for us, so I'm really pleased that it all went so well and we have had such good feedback already.

Your planetarium show at the end Sandra was excellent, and I really don't think anyone will have missed looking at the real night sky through the telescope. It was a fantastic way to end the evening. Really good fun. I think those images of the constellations must have been completely magical to a 6 year old Beaver.

I think the mix of free playtime, badgework, tea and the show was the perfect combination. And lovely for the children to be able to share the experience with all their friends.

Thanks very much for all your hardwork in helping us organise this special event. Please pass on our thanks to all the other helpers on the day. Hopefully see you again sometime!

Thank you for making Saturday such a great day for our Brownies. We have had so many good comments from leaders from around the county about how well organised everything was within the science centre.

Many thanks to you Jo & to your colleagues for a great evening at the science centre. We saw some real stars & planets too - bonus! We'll test them next week & because it was made interesting I expect them to remember a good deal. See you again....

Saturday 23rd November 2013 - 15:25 Very impressed by level of customer service
Very impressed by level of customer service

My daughter had forgotten her coat and you kindly loaned her a fleece for the day.
I was very impressed by that level of customer service; as you really don't see it everyday. In fact, all of the staff should be commended on their knowledge and helpfulness. The staff in the cafe were run off their feet but always had a smile and a warm welcome. The cafe was clean and the food good and wholesome at a reasonable price.
I had no idea the centre was there and will definitely be back and recommending you to all my friends. We look forward to seeing you again, hopefully, on one of your open evenings ...... With a coat for everyone!!!
