Hi Peter,

Hopefully you'll see from this forum that there's a wealth of experience and opinion out there. Is there any way that decisions on everything from policy to certificate design could perhaps be thrown open to grassroots?

I know not all things could go public and that a certain amount of consultation goes on but maybe as an example if a new Cub badge was proposed, float the idea and detail on scouts.org.uk or indeed on escouts.org.uk and garner thoughts and constructive comments.
