Caroline Colley

Assistant District Commissioner - Beavers

Hello, I’m Caroline, Assistant District Commisioner (ADC) for Beaver Scouts in Preston, and Beaver Scout Leader (BScL) at 1st Cottam Scout Group.

Many moons ago I was asked to help as a parent and the rest, as they say, is history. 

Being part of a community group and the wide “family” of scouting in Preston and West Lancashire, seeing young people develop new skills, make new friends (often for life) and achieve, is fulfilling and rewarding. 

I too have made many new friends, learnt new skills and have pushed my own boundaries. 

As a BScL I run weekly meetings for my group where we try our hand at fire lighting and cooking s’mores, help in our community, develop knot tying skills or play team games, to mention but a few activities. 

As ADC, my team and I plan activities for Preston District and the County (West Lancs), from cinema trips to STEM days and sleepovers to fundays, as well as supporting local groups throughout the year and presenting the top award at Beavers, the Bronze Award. 

After a challenging 12/18 months for all we are bouncing back in the great outdoors, safely, having fun and enjoying all scouting offers.
