"The girls all thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would have liked to stay longer"

"Massive thank you from our cubs. The staff all round were really helpful last night and very friendly. We look forward to coming again: Plus the parents were saying how much infrmation the children relaid to them which is a great sign of how much they took on board."

"Thank you everyone involved in the evening- it was very interesting and great to link with our Stargazer Badge"

"The evening was very well organised and made for a smooth transition from stage to stage. It was nice for the cubs to have interaction with other groups. All staff were very polite and helpful. We're looking forward to returning in the future"

"The beavers really enjoyed the computer exhibit where they could move a constellation with their hand"

"Shame about the weather- but at least we had the planetarium with the knowledgeable presenter. Hopefully next time the weather will allow us to use the telescopes"

"Fantastic evening and the girls (brownies) loved it. WE had very positive feedback from parents at the next meeting. There was plenty to do and the staff were extremely helpful"
"Would it be possible to organise an event for leaders? We enjoyed our visit too, but felt we would love to do something like that without the children!"
