Terri Wiltshire appointed as Assistant GSL
27/03/2019 By Rhys Bennett


It is with great joy that I announce that I have appointed Terri Wiltshire to be Assistant Group Scout Leader at 5th Risca. Her appointment to that role has also been approved by our District Commissioner.

5th Risca have seen growth year-on-year for the past few years, and at this year’s census had its highest number of youth members in 14 years. On top of that, as our hall is in a state of dire disrepair, I am having to spend increasing amounts of my time working as a 5th Risca representative to the Ty Sign Hall charity.

Our Scout troop has recently moved to a Tuesday evening, and with the impending retirement of Mark Carpenter as our Scout Leader, we are seeking to support a new team to work with our Scouts. This will require a tremendous amount of support over the coming months, which I cannot do alone!

Terri has done an amazing job as our Beaver Scout Leader, and will continue to undertake that role. By the end of next week she will have completed her training in that role. In the past year she has become a Nights Away permit holder, as well as qualifying to supervise Duke of Edinburgh Award expeditions. She is married to John, our Group Secretary, and is mother to Charlie (Scout) and Bronwyn (Cub). They also have a dog called ‘Scout’ which shows just how dedicated to Scouting the whole family are!

Thank you Terri for all that you’ve done so far for 5th Risca, and I wish you well in this new role! Thanks for taking on the challenge!
