Meet The Team

District Commissioner

David’s first experience of Scouting was as a Beaver in the 1990s at 10th Romsey (Woodley & Crampmoor) Group. We are pleased to say that he has never left since then and became our District Commissioner in 2018. He is the youngest DC we have ever had and his enthusiasm has seen the District through some of the challenges of recent years.

David’s Scouting experiences include volunteering on Brownsea Island for the Centenary celebrations in 2007 and climbing Ben Nevis.

Deputy District Commissioner

Rob has been involved in Scouting since the 1990s starting at 10th Romsey (Woodley & Crampmoor) Group. Since then he has held various roles within the group and district. From assisting section nights, running sections, coordinating events and now has became the DDC of Romsey.

District Chair

Claire doesn’t remember a time when she wasn’t a Scout, largely because her Dad was Scout leader at 15th Romsey (North Baddesley) when she was born. She started her adult Scouting as an Assistant Scout Leader in Leicester (having been away to University). She moved back to Romsey District in 2000 and was quickly signed up to the District team. Claire has been District Chair since 2014 and is proud to say that she is the first woman to have held the role.

Claire’s favourite Scouting memory is having spent the Centenary celebrations on Brownsea Island with her Dad.

District Youth Commissioner

Dan started as a beaver at 15th Romsey and went through all the sections eventually becoming a YL and helping at the same cub group he attended.

When he turned 18, he decided to stay in scouting and become the District Youth Commissioner because of his love of scouting and the outdoors.

As the District Youth Commissioner, he makes sure that the young people can make the most out of the opportunities that are available to them and have their say in how scouting is run.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
