Help support the success of Eastleigh Scouts!

The role of a District Commissioner is very rewarding and is an opportunity to develop yourself and others. The District Commissioner, or District Commissioner Team, will have the opportunity to meet young people and adults, whose lives have been changed as Scouts, and to inspire and help Scouts Groups grow and deliver even more exciting and adventurous activities to even more young people. This is a flexible role and this role is open to role share within a small team. The format of the team can be decided between its members with some guidance from Headquarters. These roles do not necessarily need to be filled by current adult volunteers.

Please see an infomation pack here.


What next?
If you would like to be considered for the role or know someone that might fulfil the role, please contact for further information and Nomination/Application form. We would also consider a 'job share/team' nomination or other opportunities to share the role.

The other week our Acting District Commissioner and also the Assistant County Commissioner Central Cluster Support – Colin Floyd, visited the 7th Eastleigh (2nd Fair Oak) Cub Pack to present a very special award to one of their Cubs. Colin was delighted to present the Commissioner’s Commendation Award for Good Service to Harry from the 7th Eastleigh Cub Pack.

Harry has kept his Cub Scout Promise by always doing his best and has succeeded in completing and achieving all 37 Cub Scout Activity badges, at least one stage from all 15 Staged Activity badges, as well as all of his 7 Challenges Awards which coincidently achieved his Chief Scout Silver Award (highest award in the Cub Scout section).

Harry said, “I felt excited to have achieved all my badges and very proud of myself and hoping for a new challenges of getting all my Scout badges when I move up soon”. Harry’s favorite badges that he achieved were the Water Activities and Sailing badges as he is a keen sailor and idolizes his hero Sir Ben Ainslie.

Eastleigh District would like to wish Harry a massive congratulations for this unbelievable and momentous achievement and for showing great determination and persistence.

Highwood has given the new North Stoneham Scout Group’s fundraising target a welcome boost by donating £1400 to its appeal fund – half of what it needs to support this new initiative at the Park for the coming year. The 11th Eastleigh Scout Group had to find £2800 to meet the cost of community hall hire charges, equipment and outdoor activities and Highwood was delighted to step in and contribute.

Steve Matthews, Managing Director of Highwood, took great pleasure in presenting a cheque to Malcolm Young, Deputy District Commissioner who, coincidentally, was a member of the original 11th Eastleigh Scout Group in the 1950s and 60s.

‘We’re delighted to support the 11th Eastleigh Scout Group as it prepares to open its doors here,’ Steve commented. ‘Community projects like this are at the heart of what we’ve all wanted to achieve at the Park and the response from the families who live here has been so rewarding.

‘As the local centre prepares to open its doors for get-togethers and a great programme of activities and the nursery children move into their new home, the future for the Park’s community is looking very bright indeed.’

The 11th Eastleigh Scout Group will be the UK’s newest scout group to formally open after Easter when it meets for the very first time on 19th May. From that date, children aged from six to 13 will join their fellow Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to take part in a wide range of activities and some fabulous outdoor pursuits throughout the year.

These include kayaking and raft-making at the nearby Lakeside Country Park and the Lyons Copse Scout Activities Centre and Campsite in Shedfield as well as climbing and other adventures in the New Forest. Indeed, everyone involved can’t wait to get started as Hannah Butterworth Smith, 11th Eastleigh Group Scout Leader and Park resident, has revealed.
