New Appointments – County Youth Commissioners


I am pleased to announce  that Ellie Eagles and Lauren Colwell will take over the roles of County Youth Commissioners  from 1st July 2022.

They will take over from Jack who has done a sterling job and will move on to new  pastures within the County.

Both Ellie and Lauren will work alongside Jack over the forthcoming months and I ask that you support them both as they take up their roles.


Ellie has a long background in Scouting as a Young Person in Ashby and Coalville District, and since turning 18, has supported a number of District and County events, including the recent Jamboree Selection event and County Youth Forum.


Ellie has spent several months with the UK Adventures team at Gilwell Park and Youlbury last year and is now training to be an activity instructor at LOPC.


Ellie will also be attending the World Scout Jamboree 2023 in Korea as part of the IST.


Lauren is currently an Explorer and Young Leader in South Leicestershire and is set to become a Beaver Leader at Gilmorton when she turns 18 in April.

Lauren was very involved in the 2021 Mucky March campaign, representing the County in local media and has also recently supported the County’s WSJ25 Unit Leader selection process and County Youth Forum.


Lauren will also be attending the World Scout Jamboree 2023 alongside Ellie as a member of the IST and she is hoping to study veterinary medicine at university.
