Thank you all for your welcome to me as Acting District Commissioner over the past few months. I have enjoyed my visits to sections and units across the District and I look forward to continuing with this in 2019.

I am pleased to announce some new appointments to help me with the management of the District as follows:
ADC (Cubs) – Jo Whiting. Jo is currently a CSL at the 11th in Penicuik
ADC (Development) – Karen Wightman. Karen is currently GSL at the 49th in Rosewell
District Explorer Scout Commissioner (DESC) – Brian McGuff. Brian is currently District Secretary
ADC (Youth Involvement) – Keiran Lane. Keiran is currently AESL in Bonnyrigg
The new team, who will all continue in their existing roles, join me, Callum Anderson as DDC and Ian Sharp as ADC (Adult Training).

The focus of the new team is to create a vision to bring the District together in 2019 and we look forward to working with everyone on this task. I would welcome the chance to chat with anyone who would like to contribute to this task. Further details will follow about each of the new roles and how they will help leaders across the District.

May I thank you all for everything you have done for the young people in the District in 2018.

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

Martin Browne
District Commissioner
