I am very pleased to announce that Stewart Lomax is to take on the role of Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme Co-Ordinator for Ashdown. This is an important role to help support our Young people to achieve their DoE awards through Scouting. East Sussex CC have already tried once to remove the funding from Schools across the County but one thing for sure is that Scouting will always be here to support our Explorers and Network Scouts to achieve the best they can.
I also very excited to welcome Greg Richards from 4th Uckfield to the team in the roll of ADC Growth & Development. Greg will, of course, be continuing as CSL of Martletts Cub Pack at 4th Uckfield whilst assisting me with taking forward what will become our District Development Plan.
Megan Tullis, District Youth Commissioner, has moved to London where she will continue Scouting. I am pleased that her Deputy, Tom Dalton, has agreed to step up and become DYC. Tom will be assisting me in forming a whole team of Youth Commissioners to mirror the District Team.
Ash Jones District Commissioner.
