New District Appointments

The DC has strengthened the District Management team by making two new appointments. Penny Rothwell is the new District Youth Commissioner and Robert Rigge is the new District Network Commissioner.

Penny, aged 21, has been in scouting from explorer stage, and couldn’t wait to become a leader at 18. She Graduated from Edge Hill University with a degree in Law in 2015 and is currently doing her legal practice course to become a solicitor. She is the CSL at 13th Leigh, and is one of the youngest persons in the district to have received a wood badge. She is passionate about scouting and loves nothing more than to hear what an amazing time her young people have had. Penny wants to see a stronger Lilford district which is driven by youth voice, with more young people in leadership roles and establishing a youth forum in the coming months.

Robert, 24 years young, an Infrastructure Engineer for Ramboll in Chester who graduated from Liverpool John Moores University in 2014 and has been involved in scouting within GMW for the past 3 years as a member of the service team at Bispham Hall Scout Estate. When he has free time he can be found more often than not outside; climbing or walking. He’s now ready to take on Network Scouting in Lilford District with an action packed programme and a brief of getting Queen Scouts.
