We are excited to announce our new Chief Commissioner for England, Alex Peace-Gadsby. spoke to Alex about her new role and all things volunteering…



Hi, Alex. Congratulations on your new appointment – can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Thank you! So, I live in Nottinghamshire where I’m a Scout leader in the Ashfield District. I mainly work between Nottingham and London; in my day job I own and run multiple businesses– the most significant of those being the clothing company, Musto. I also sit on various national and local charity boards. I’ve got two children – a Cub and a Beaver.

On a Friday night I’m a leader with Beaver Scouts and also Scouts and Explorers later in the evening. I love working with the Beaver Scouts – it’s an age where they’ll happily sign up for anything and it’s a real magical age for them, as I can even enthuse and entertain them by just putting on a pink wig, which is great! It’s then really lovely to pick up with the young people again when they’re older – you watch and help them develop and then, before you know it, you’re mentoring teenagers and helping them with opportunities for their CVs.
