As Essex Scouts continues to develop and grow, a number of changes to the management of the County kick into place within the Core Team, the group of volunteers who manage and develop Scouting in Essex.

Following an update to the Training Team structure and its change of leadership under Jan Lyon and Mark Catto, training becomes a key part of the County Core Team ensuring that training provision forms part of the development of Scouting in Essex.

Jan and Mark have started to regularly met with the Training Teams in the 5 areas and are reviewing the structure and roles and will be keeping you informed of changes and progress.

Changes to the line management responsibility for Skreens Park Activity Centre and the County Training Managers allows Gary Brown to take over the responsibility for the vacant Deputy County Commissioner Communications role.

Gary will meet and work with the media and communications team to develop the ongoing support.
