Meet the New County Training Team!


We are pleased to introduce the new County Training Team to you. Some faces you may recognise!


Shirley Sinclair – County Training Manager, Managers, Supporters and Trustees

Many of you will know Shirley from her previous roles and most recently, ACC Inclusion.

She has also held roles as ADC in Southern Norwich and Southern Norfolk. With approaching 25 years in Scouting,

Shirley will bring a wealth of experience to the role.




Pat Pinnington – County Training Manager, Section Leaders

Pat will be joining us from the Girl Guiding Norfolk.

Pat has held many County and District roles within the Girl Guiding Norfolk, including Norfolk County Commissioner from 2013-2018.

Additionally Pat oversaw the Girl Guiding Adult County Training Section.

Pat will share some of the Girl Guide ‘best practice’ with the team to see if any of those fit with Scouting.





David Human – County Training Manager, Basics.

David is currently the GSL at Thetford, having been the former DC of South West Norfolk.

He has recently returned to Scouting after a long absence. David’s day job is a very experienced trainer and manager.

He will be able to share knowledge of commercial practices  which will enable the team to decided whether any of these can be adopted into Norfolk Scouts.
