I’ve been involved in Scouts since joining the 15th Forth Valley Grangemouth as a Cub. I had a fantastic time there as I moved my way to Venture Scouts with plenty of badges, international camps and experiences along the way.
It’s no exaggeration to say that those experiences, the leaders that provided them and the Scouts that I shared them with have had a huge influence as to who I am today.
That’s why I’m excited about this role – it is to make sure as many young people as possible can have access to the great things Scouting does, and to support those leaders and volunteers who work tirelessly to help them in that. I can’t wait to get stuck in.
In my day job, I’m Director of Communications of Edinburgh Airport.
