Committee

The 1st Sunningdale Scout Group Executive Committee is responsible for the financial management, facilities, maintenance, safety, and overall operation of the 1st Sunningdale Scout Group.

The committee meets once or twice a term with occasional, additional special meetings as required.

Members of the committee are a mix of long serving, experienced scouters, parents and committed members of the local communities.

Micky King

Michael King

Chair (2019)

I decided to join the Committee because at the time my son was enjoying being involved in Scouting, as a Beaver, and there was a request for support. Whilst I could not commit to being a Leader, the Committee role has provided me the opportunity to give something back to the community. My children are also proud that I am involved in something that positively affects them and their friends.

Grant Wyatt

Treasurer (2016)

I got involved with 1st Sunningdale initially as a Beaver Leader, as there was a real threat that the section would have to close without support. Although I am no longer a Leader, due to changes with work, I wanted to keep involved and joined the Committee. The reason for my involvement is that the Leaders put HUGE amounts of positive energy into my two older kids, and I really felt that I want to give something back.

Matt Newall

Secretary (2020)

I have two sons who have progressed through Beavers and Cubs, and are now in Scouts; and I simply wanted to make a formal and semi-regular contribution, that would fit around my work and other personal commitments.

David Brittain

David Brittain

Quatermaster (2016)

I joined the committee because I spent many happy times as a lad in both the Cubs and Scouts, so wanted to help the group when my son joined a few years ago. I enjoy the camaraderie we have throughout the group and the satisfaction that comes with doing things that help a common cause, to the benefit of the community.


Doug Home

(1997)

I got involved when my son joined Beavers. I started as an Assistant Beaver Leader, then moved on to Cubs as Akela. Before long I had the honour of being given the Group Scout Leader role. As a Scout Group we are fortunate to have and have had so many dedicated, fun loving Leaders and Executive members. I cannot thank them enough for what they do.

(2011)

Both my sons have been involved in the Sunningdale Scouts. Whilst attending various scout camps and associated fund-raising events, I realised the wonderful opportunities my children experienced with the group only existed due to the commitment and dedication of local volunteers – who become Leaders.
I’ve been on the Committee since 2011, time has flown! None of my children attend now, but I’m still happy to support such a great community effort.

Wendy Morton

Beavers’ Parent Rep (2019)

I was involved in Guiding throughout my childhood, from a Brownie to becoming a Guider and running my own rainbow unit at 18. It gave me the opportunity to do so many amazing activities, regularly attend camp and travel internationally. I had my 18th birthday at the 19th World Scout Jamboree in Chile and completed service projects in both Uganda and Thailand. As the mum of three boys my options in Guiding were somewhat limited (!!) so it was time to move into Scouting. I wasn’t able to help on a weekly basis due to work commitments but was introduced to the role of the Exec Committee.


We still require more people to join the Executive Committee, so if you feel inspired to join, please email enquiries@sunningdalescouts.org.uk
