We’re lucky to have a team of amazing people who help lead and support Scouting across the District. Please get in touch with any of the members of the team, if you don’t know where to go – firstname.lastname@example.org is a good place to start.
The District Commissioner Team
The District Commissioner has overall responsibility for leading the delivery of Scouting in Ealing and Hanwell. As part of a flexible approach to volunteering we have a team of two people who ‘job share’, forming a District Commissioner Team.
Heather Jones – I’ve been a leader in Ealing and Hanwell for over 20 years, mostly with the Beaver age-group, plus a few years as an Assistant Cub Scout Leader prior to that. My previous District-level roles were as a DBSL and then ADC Beavers, and I also have a bit of experience as a Training Adviser. I love running activities for Beavers – it’s fun and it energises me, which is why I aim to continue as a Beaver Leader alongside my Commissioner responsibilities. Outside scouting, I spent the last 8 years as a p/t Teaching Assistant in a local primary school, having switched from a previous much longer career in administration. Recently, I stepped away from my school-based job and took ‘semi-retirement’ to focus on a number of home-improvement projects and creative pursuits, in addition to supporting my elderly parents.
Ben Pearson – I’ve also been a leader in the District for over 20 years, always with the oldest youth section. I started as an Assistant Venture Scout Leader at the 1st Hanwell before becoming an Explorer Leader when the sections changed in 2002. I’m now the District Explorer Scout Commissioner for E&H and personally run our Brigantia ESU Monday meeting. I also run the County’s Expedition Training Team and enjoy spending time helping the young people achieve their Duke of Edinburgh’s award. In my ‘day job’ I’m an IT Manager for Step Teachers, a small teaching recruitment agency. email@example.com
