Message to all Suffolk Scouts leaders and supporters
I am delighted to let you know that, following an extensive search process, I have appointed Jane Dickinson as the County Commissioner for Suffolk Scouts.
Jane will take over from Jenny Mullan on 18th April and they are working together to ensure a smooth handover.
Jane will already be known to many of you as the Deputy County Commissioner for Youth Programme, but she has held many roles over the years in Suffolk and elsewhere. Most recently, before taking on her DCC role, she was Deputy DC in Bury St Edmunds and led the Suffolk Unit to the last World Scout Jamboree.
Jane brings with her great enthusiasm and a real passion for Scouting. She wants to see Scouting continue to grow and thrive in Suffolk and I know that she will do all she can to ensure that every young person in Suffolk has the opportunity to benefit from the life changing chances that Scouting offers.
Please join me in thanking Jenny for her exceptional leadership and service as County Commissioner over the last seven and a half years, and in congratulating Jane on her appointment and wishing her well as she takes on the leadership of a thriving and ambitious County.
Regional Commissioner for the East of England
