When I became District Commissioner in July 2014 it was the pinnacle of over 50 years in the movement.
I joined the cubs in Staines in 1963 (no beavers in those days) before moving on to Scouts and Venture Scouts. Having helped in the Scout section as a Venture Scout I became a leader at the age of 20.
I have held numerous roles in the intervening years, ASL, acting GSL, VSL, ESL, ADC Scout Fellowship and finally Active Support Manager before the offer to become DC proved too tempting!
I am firmly committed to the youth driven vision of The Scout Association and hope that Spelthorne can become forerunners in this aim.
I am often asked to sum up Scouting in one word. For me the answer is easy - FUN!!!
