County Training Team

We’re delighted to welcome new members to the team!

An update from Keith Coote, Deputy County Commissioner (People)

I recently announced that Barry Manley will be joining the team at Local Training Manager for Eastern Norwich.

Local Training Manager – North West Norfolk

In addition, Paula Burchett has joined as Local Training Manager, with the geographic responsibility for North West Norfolk District. Although this is Paula’s first Scout volunteering experience, she bring a wealth of skills from outside as a professional trainer and a health and safety adviser.

Paula says ‘I am really looking forward to meeting the leaders in North West Norfolk and joining the team managing and providing training across Norfolk.” Paula will shortly be able to respond on her Norfolk Scouts email address –

County Training Administrator 

I’m also pleased to welcome Jennifer Chetwynd, who is known to many across the county. Jennifer has been appointed as County Training Administrator. The appointment will commence on the 20th September 2021. This will follow on from when Jennifer’s appointment as District Commissioner for East Norfolk concludes. Jennifer will retain her Norfolk Scouts email address –

I am very pleased to have someone with Jennifer’s vast experience of Scouting, join the County team. She will bring so much to the role!
