9. - Council
2. - Scout and / or Guide

Rainbows and Brownies - primary school - the local council .

my guides - local priory - owned by the church of Scotland

Faith group - but when setting up the group we put the street/area in the unit name as we aren't sponsored and I thought we might need to move at some stage.
Despite this some local Guiders refer to us as the "Church Name" unit. I have asked them not to as it's not in the unit name on Go (and no parents ever know where the hall is since it's nowhere near the church), but they just gave me a blank look.

Church of Ireland hall
the parish own two halls (covers two villages). In total 7 units use their halls.
Bit worrying given there recent statement. :(

Can you edit in a poll - might be easier?
I originally tried to set up a poll but by the time I had entered the 8 options that I thought were likely and an other, the poll functionality had timed out, and the system wouldn't let me add a poll. I messaged a mod, asking for them to shut down this thread to let me set up a new poll, but I think people had started answering
