Devon County’s Organisational Structure

Hello, and welcome to an update from the County Commissioner team of Devon Scouting.  In the last week, you should have received a PDF document of the Organisational Structure via your DC.   This short film explains what it means.


  • We have published the line management diagram for the county.
  • We have organised ourselves into clusters to make it easier to communicate and work together.
  • The working groups are flexible with space for everyone to contribute at county level.
  • A handy list of contact details are included to help improve communications.
Devon Scouts Organisational Structure
Please take  5 minutes to watch this film explaining how this will work and how you can be part of the county team too!  We can’t do it on our own and we don’t want to.
Thanks for every you do for Scouting.  It really makes a difference to over 8000 young people across our county.

Marc Coton
on behalf of the County Commissioner’s Team.

Gang Show 2016

Posted on February 19th, 2016 by trevor

Well the tickets are nearly all sold out for Friday and Saturday now, with many who saw on Wednesday or Thursday going for a second time. The ‘Gang’ have a real range of songs, comedy and dance for you. With some real talents shining through, and some being rather glamorous – the cast members you might not quite expect to see ‘dress’ed up.

All the cast and support crew have put so much in so far and still two more performances to go. Well done. B-R-A-V-O and may the Force be with them.
