Following a poll that was posted on the Bucks Scout Radio Facebook page yesterday, it has been revealed that 97% of people prefer Face-to-Face Scouting to virtual Scouting! Out of 488 people who responded to the poll, just 14 people (3%) voted in favour of Virtual Scouting.

Many groups have been embracing virtual Scouting during the Coronavirus lockdown, with group video calls and an array of different games and activities being used to keep Scouting going after face-to-face Scouting was suspended from the 17th March. We here at Bucks Scout Radio have also been offering weekly live shows for every Scouting section with our ‘BSR at Home’ series.

One Facebook user said:

Face to face meetings win hands down, although the mute function on zoom can be useful!” – Daniel, 1st Facebook Scout Group’

I think a lot of Leaders agree with you there, Daniel!
