Chester & District Working Together …

Each Scout Group is managed by a Group Scout Leader and staffed by a team of adult volunteers.

In fact, all our other leaders and supporters, for example in our Explorer Scout Units and the Scout Network, are volunteers and are involved in the Scouts in their spare time. The business affairs of the District are managed by an elected District Executive Committee.
