Meet Our Team…

We have over 1,000 adult volunteers within our County, making Scouting possible for over 4,000 young people between 6 – 25 every day! Below are our County team who are responsible for Scouting within Greater Manchester North.
Ian Silvester
County Commissioner

My Scouting began in 1984, when I joined a Cub Scout Pack in the County. After progressing through to Venture Scouts I gained by Queen’s Scout Award and attend Windsor.

Although I did take a couple of gap years I’ve worked with each Section through to Explorers and held Group and District roles before becoming County Commissioner.

I think that the Scout movement offers brilliant opportunities to Young People and Adult Volunteers to learn new skills, grow in confidence, do new things and have a great deal of fun!

I work full time as an Internal Auditor in a professional services firm and in the summer of 2018 moved with my family to Jersey.

A bit about myself in Scouting so far:

I was the first girl beaver in Bolton East and have continued my scouting journey since then. I was a participant at the 2011 World Scout Jamboree that was held in Sweden and made some of the best memories of my life there; I now have the opportunity to go as a leader to the 2019 World Scout Jamboree hosted my Boy Scouts of America, Canada Scouts and The Scouts association of Mexico. Finally, I have completed my Queens Scout Award (which I would say) is my greatest achievement so far!

 

What I most enjoy about Scouting:

I love the fact that every person has the chance to try something new! Members are encouraged to be outside learning new skills (or practicing old ones!) as well as making friends, building on teamwork skills and having FUN!

 

What I’d like to achieve in this role:

I want every young person in scouting to remember the activities they’ve done throughout their journey in scouting by helping create fun and exciting activities that  everyone can join in with!

Mike Bradley
Deputy Youth Commissioner
A bit about myself in scouting:
Because I’ve been in scouting since I was 7 years old, my life has revolved around Scouting as camping and hiking every weekend has become the norm. The Scouting movement has allowed me to change into someone who likes taking charge of groups and if not in a leadership role, being involved with a group from someone who was nervous around other people.
What I most enjoy:
Although on a weekly basis I enjoy meetings, the scouting activities I enjoy the most are the escapades. Not being inside, exploring with my friends and doing the exciting things it is difficult to do locally. Climbing, sleeping under the stars, gorge scrambling, the natural exploration side of scouting thrills me.
What I’d like to achieve:
In this role I’d like to enhance the idea of Youth Led Scouting, because when I was younger, I found it difficult to enjoy some of the activities that we did. Just by asking the Young People in the Groups what they want to do. Knowing what areas of Scouting that Young People are interested in can enhance the fun they are having and how much they learn.
