District Explorer Scout Commissioner Appointed

I am delighted to appoint Keith Black as Midlothian’s District Explorer Scout Commissioner (DESC).

Keith has recently been helping coordinate Midlothian District elements of the Duke of Edinburgh expeditions with the South East Explorers Expeditions Team (SEEE Team). It has been a logical progression to widen his remit.

Initially his remit will be to support our 3 Explorer Units, but will include development of our Young Leader Scheme, Duke of Edinburgh Scheme & Blair Atholl Jamborette.

Keith is a holder of the Queen’s Scout award, the top achievement for Explorer Scouts and Scout Network and has 13 years as an adult leader, including Section roles at Scouts and Explorers and a period as District Scout Network Commissioner.

I am looking forward to working with Keith developing Explorer Scouts in the District. Keith can be contacted at keith.black@midlothianscouts.org.uk
