Group Leaders

Neil Whittiington
Group Scout Leader

Hi, I’m Neil Group Scout Leader. I look after the overall group programme and the day to day running of the group. I have been Scouting for over 10 years, starting as an assistant Cub Leader, since getting involved I have also held roles in training for the `area and nights away for the district but by far the most rewarding has been working with the young people. I really enjoy Scouting and most enjoy it when I am putting my Archery training to good use by teaching archery to the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
