Meet the team

Blaydon District is run by our District Leadership team which is made up of our District Commissioner, assistant district commissioners, youth commissioner, group scout leaders and district scouters. The Governance of our district is run and overseen by our District Executive Committee, which is made up by a number of individuals from within and outside of Scouting.

Groups and district sections are then led by our fantastic adult volunteers which includes section leaders, assistant leaders, occasional helpers and parental helpers.
