I am very pleased to let you know that I have appointed Andy Beaumont as the new District Commissioner for Borders District with immediate effect.  

In his new role, Andy will be responsible for managing the District’s Leadership Team, including its Group Scout Leaders, and provide strategic leadership to Scouting in the District.  

I am delighted that Andy has agreed to take on this new role and am confident that his enthusiasm and dedication will ensure that young people and adult volunteers in Borders District continue to enjoy the opportunities that Scouting offers and I look forward to working with him to support and develop Scouting in the district.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Graham Coulson for his work as acting District Commissioner role, which has been crucial during the recent challenges.
