Greg Kilpin to lead Bedford District Scouts in providing Scouting for All

Greg Kilpin has been appointed as the new District Commissioner for Bedford District Scouts with immediate effect.

Announcing the news on Friday, Bob Calver, County Commissioner for Bedfordshire Scouts, said:

I am pleased to announce that Greg Kilpin has accepted my invitation to take on the role of the District Commissioner in Bedford.

Greg has been Group Scout Leader at Oakley for the past three years and prior to that held section leader roles for over a decade in the group.

During his time at Oakley, he has been instrumental in establishing new sections, and during his time as Group Scout Leader has focussed on building a strong team, something he hopes to focus on in his new role as he begins to build a district team.

I am really looking forward to working with Greg as he supports everyone in moving Bedford District forward, delivering on our aim to provide Scouting to All. I know he has some great ideas and plans that he will be wanting to share in the coming months.
