Always looking to improve our "offer" at Catalyst we decided to take the plunge and have a Scout group sleeping the night. We have been asked to do this a few times but now with our new Director behind the idea all the other staff had to get invovled too!
44 scouts and leaders came in the snow to sleep over in our observatory which is a glass floor on the very top of the building. We kept the galleries open for them so it was fun to be able to stay when everyone else went home.
Lynn in our cafe made a great supper Hot Pot and then they watched a 3D movie in our theatre. Early next morning the education team and Lynn served breakfast and then we all made science pressies - we had done that with science club the week before so we were well set up.
Over night we had heavy snow but the scouts were really tucked up warm and said it was amazing being on the 4th floor with the snow falling and the Runcorn bridge all lit up.
Everyone really had a great time and it was certainly a super way to start the Christmas holidays.
