Dear Stratford Upon Avon District Leaders and supporters,

As you know the District has been without a District Commissioner since Mike Hayward stepped down a couple of years ago and I have been covering in an acting capacity.  Thank you for bearing with me during this time. 

I am delighted to announce that Glyn Slade has agreed to take on the DC position.  This will be a new name to many of you as he has not been involved in Scouting within Stratford Upon Avon District previously.  He was a member as a young person and adult in Birmingham.


We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Carl Hankinson, our new UK Chief Commissioner, and Jennie Price, our new Chair of the Board of Trustees.

Brief description of role of Communications Manager

To head a small team to develop District communications and help tell Scouting stories externally to the public and internally to Scouting, particularly in Stratford upon Avon District.

The role will include using all aspects of communications in particularly Social Media, Web Site, Mailchimp, Press and developing contacts with local Media.

Your communication planning will use information from Groups, District and County Scouts. By planning you can ensure that the right photos, text, audio or video are used across a number of channels, to members of the public.
