eHuBB 2: 29th August 2014

Posted on: Friday, August 29, 2014

Welcome to our eHuBB this week.

Programming Ideas


The Risk Factory
The Risk Factory have create an education programme for Anchors and Juniors.

Would any Section be interested in visiting The Risk Factory in September or October?
Please let me know what dates would suit.  (The more flexible you are with dates the better.)

The cost is £5 a Boy/Girl.  Leaders go free.

Their minimum charge is £110.  They can take a maximum of 4 groups of 8 (32 Boys/Girls).

If you take 32 Boys/Girls, it works out £3.44 a Boy/Girl.

Here is what 3rd/8th Edinburgh BB had to say about their visit:

"It was very good, the boys all seemed to enjoy it - it brings safety to life rather than looking at pictures, made it all seem more real to them.
"The volunteers were very good with the boys.
"Would certainly recommend it for Anchors and Juniors."
