Chip Shop Survey

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Were can you get the best take out in town?


Money for teams/patrols to purchase portions of chips
You need to organise survey sheets prior to activity (think about what categories to score on - age relevant)


Teams/Patrols are given the freedom to select various fast-food outlets in town.
Each team/patrol visits an outlet, purchases a portion of chips, and scores the outlet on taste, quality, service, price, menu range etc.
Results are compared and the best "chippy" determined - get the Unit to design a certificate and award it to the outlet (possible media story)
If you get the patrols to draw up a map of their route and mark where they went - covers Navigator badge
Section dependant - use judgement on whether teams need to be accompanied by a leader.
