Team DC announced for The Malverns

27 October 2023

After a lot of searching and work behind the scenes, Sid (our County Commissioner and has been acting District Commissioner) and I are delighted to be able to announce that we have a new Team District Commissioner in place for The Malverns. Everything has been agreed, and the changes will be added to Compass in the very near future.

Our new Team DC are:

  • Ben Johnstone – also GSL 2nd Malvern and a District Trustee
  • Paul Boniface – also GSL 1st Leigh and a District Trustee

They can be contacted through the e-mail

We wish them both very well in their additional new roles – but it will take a while for them to be fully up to speed, so please join with us in doing everything that you can to help and support them through this transition.

The basic plan is that:

  • Paul will support Groups to the west and north of the District (1st Ledbury, 1st Bosbury, 1st Cradley, 1st Colwall & 1st Leigh) + Squirrels, Cubs and Scouts
  • Ben will support Groups to the east and south of the District (1st Upton, 1st Malvern Wells, 1st Malvern, 2nd Malvern, 1st Malvern Link & 7th Malvern) + Beavers and County
  • Both will work with Adrian to support Explorers and The District Trustees.

This is great news for The Malverns District enabling us to move forwards and I’d like to add my personal thanks to both Paula and Ben.

Many thanks
Derek Barnes
