We’re delighted to announce that Chris Whitehead has been appointed to the role of District Commissioner for Chingford.
Chris has been a member of Chingford District for around 20 years. He joined as a Beaver and has worked his way up through all of the sections; by the time he turned 18 and was a Network member he was already helping to run a Scout troop. He has since taken other roles including District Network Chairman, during which time he organised a 2011 trip to Ireland which provided an opportunity for many of his fellow Networkers to complete their Explorer Badge.
For the last couple of years, Chris has worked at County as a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Advisor where he has supported Scouts from across the County as well as Chingford in completing their awards and has helped to organise and assess several expeditions. He returned to Chingford as Secretary only three months ago and has now agreed to take on the role of District Commissioner.
Chris has already started working with local Leaders and is welcoming of all ideas which will help the young people and volunteers of Chingford to enjoy and benefit from their scouting even more.
