This Friday we had a themed evening on the topic of Diversity expanding on points made earlier in the Scout Law including "world-wide family of Scouts" and "respect for others". Activities included facilitated discussion of who to keep on an island which challenged a few perceptions. Towards the end of the evening we constructed diversity keyrings which also contribute towards the Creative Challenge Badge. This will most likely be awarded before Easter.

This Friday we didn't have access to the main hall and so made good use of time by preparing for investiture of new scouts next week. In the process, we looked at the scout promise and law and applied it in the manufacture of our own code of conduct.
