New County Commissioner for GMW Scouts

Announcement of the new County Commissioner by Chris Harris, Regional Commissioner (North West)

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Andy Farrell as your County Commissioner with effect from 1 December 2014.

Andy has been a volunteer leader in the County for 10 years, the past four as a GSL at 1st Gorse Hill and more recently also at 23rd Stretford where he has developed membership and the image of Scouting locally.  Andy worked on the recent Youth United project in Greater Manchester helping to deliver training for new leaders and helped organise the Big Day Out event at Salford Quays this time last year. He is very much looking forward to working with you and colleagues across the Region to provide the best possible opportunities for the young people of GMW in the coming years.

I would like to wish him every success in this important role.

Andy will now be working with Heather to ensure an effective and smooth transition of County Commissioners and I am sure there will be every opportunity to say your “thanks” to Heather in the next few weeks.

May I also take this opportunity to thank you for all the work you do for Scouting and to wish you all the best for the busy times ahead.


Chris Harris
