Exec Team of Trustees
Our team of Trustees work behind the scenes to support the Leaders making some of the most important decisions in how your Group runs. They provide an organisational layer to ensure the team has what they need to run safe and engaging activities for your children. Being an Executive Committee member is a rewarding and challenging way to support Scouting.
We are organised with a number of sub-teams for Administration, Finances & Fundraising, Equipment & Facilities, Long-Term Projects.
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life. We have a mix of Elected members and Co-Opted members. We would be delighted to hear from you if you want to get involved.

Bio: I got back into scouting when my son Sam wanted to join Beavers ,I remembered when I was a cub and then a scout so I know how much fun I had and also I learned so many things that have actually been useful in later years.

Name: Matthew Paige-Stimson
Bio: Joined the Exec team in 2018 to support the Group in management of our finances and fundraising activities. Matthew was raised on a Lincolnshire farm so grew up outdoors filling his free-time with fishing, rafting, tree climbing, ditch jumping and den making. He is a former Cub and Scout and has a passion for hill-walking and wild-camping. His latest adventures in Wales have moved onto hammock camping and he therefore joins the rank of "Tree-hugger".
Favourite Cake: Farmhouse flavours like apple and cinnamon
Name: Lawrence Aston
Bio: Where would our Group be without Lawrence? Every camp he is the one who organises the equipment and ensures we all have what we need for a successful event. Lawrence hopes one day we will have our own Scout Hut to store all the kit away neatly and be more organised.
Favourite Cake: - it’s always the quiet ones you have to watch...!

District Commissioner / Training Advisor
District Commissioner / Training Advisor “Baggy”
Name: Yvonne Paige-Stimson
Bio: Growing up, Yvonne was a Brownie, Guide, Young Leader and in the dance troop for the local Gang Show with fond memories of smoke-machines, lycra and sequins. She first moved across to Scouting as a Beaver Leader when she realised they were having more outdoor fun and especial enjoys the camping and canoeing. Returning to Scouts as a (*cough) grown-up when her own children were Old enough, she couldn’t wait to get involved again in the Cubs and Scouts. These days, as District Commissioner, she is responsible for overseeing the running of all the Scout, Explorer, Young Leader and Network groups in Warwick District. She believes that all children have the right to an adventure - and the only limit to what we can provide for the children is our imagination as Leaders.
Favourite Cake: All cake is wonderful, but a bit of gooey lemon drizzle, washed down with a cup of coffee is the best!
