District Commissioners

District Commissioners

Avon Scout County is one of the largest Scout Counties in the UK.  We have over 12,500 members and 4,000 volunteers, 2,000 of which volunteer regularly. We cover a large area from Weston Super Mare in the south to the villages surrounding Thornbury, South Gloucestershire in the North. It takes in the cities of Bath and Bristol and towns of Nailsea, Portishead, Keynsham.    To make this large area more manageable we section it into 9 Districts. The District Commissioner's role is to manage and support the Scout District to ensure it runs effectively and that Scouting within the District develops in accordance with the rules and policies of The Scout Association so that that the District provides good quality Scouting for young people and proactively supports and manages adults in the District.
