I would like to say I’m looking forward to performing the role as Chairman and I’m keen to work with everyone to support Margery Naylor, the Regional Commissioner, and her team in delivering great Scouting across the Region.
I am at the start of a steep learning curve and am now in the process of understanding what’s currently happening and what the priorities are. Please bear with me as I settle in and find my feet! Continue Reading Update from John Cannon, our new Chairman of the Region
