District Appointment Changes

Hi All

There have been a few changes recently in the District.

Jo Thomson has stepped down from her position as Assistant District Commissioner Cubs and I would like to thank her for her contribution over the time she has done the job. Jo is being replaced by Karen Wightman who will take on the position with immediate effect. Karen brings a great deal of experience in Cubs and will be a great asset.

Jo Whiting has stepped down as Deputy District Commissioner to take up a new role as Group Scout Leader at 12th Midlothian (Dalkeith) Scout Group with immediate effect. Jo will continue in her position running Scout Shop and Explorer Scout Leader (Young Leader). Jo has a vast amount of knowledge which will help Dalkeith to move forward.

This now leaves the Deputy District Commissioner role vacant, if anyone is interested in the role and would like to know more, feel free to get in touch.

I am sure you will give both Jo and Karen your full support and welcome them into their new roles.
