    [Answered] New Chief Scout Award certificates

    Hi Peter,

    Can you please get Gilwell to go back to the old style Chief Scouts Bronze (and Silver) certificates. The new ones are horrible and babyish and I am embarrassed to give them out to Beavers who have completed their Chief Scout Bronze Award. The Young People who are awarded this badge are usually 8 and about to go to Cubs. They do not want a certificate that is more appropriate for the 6 -7 age range. I managed to buy up a lot of the old ones when the new ones first appeared and will continue to give these out until I have no more left. I will only be giving out the badge after they have run out.

    I know that a lot of these "branding" decisions are made by other people but as the certificate has your name on it I hope that they would listen to your opinion.

    Kastor,

    Put your case to Gillwell as I'm sure that if this was a general opinion then
    they should consider changing them. What do other's think.

    Hi Peter,

    I made the same comments to Gilwell when the certificates first came out. They tend to be a big black hole if what's said doesn't follow the corporate line.
