Our Wonderful Volunteers

Our District and our units are all looked after by our fabulous volunteers. Here's a bit about some of them.

Sian Graham

District Commissioner

About Sian: Sian started out in Guiding as a Unit Helper at her daughter's Brownie unit in 2007 and we knew we'd found ourselves a fabulous volunteer. However it took 6 years to persuade her that the role she was really carrying out was that of a Leader and that she should get qualified! In 2014, she and a fellow Leader took the plunge to move from their unit to open the new 2nd Dursley Brownie unit where she can be found today. 

Her district role: Sian only took on the District Commissioner role in July 2019 and is busy getting to grips with the role. She has a 'common sense' head on her shoulders and we know she will be a great asset to the District.

Zen Nicol

District Events Coordinator

About Zen: Zen has been in Guiding since she was a Brownie and has risen through the ranks, so to speak, being a Brownie, Guide, Young Leader, Assistant Leader and now a Leader for 3rd Cam Rainbows.

Her district role: Zen is our Event Coordinator which means she pulls together the ideas we have and turns them into reality, keeping track of who's coming and making bookings with venues, etc.

Anne Anderson

Dursley Fireworks Coordinator

About Anne: Anne has been a volunteer in the District since moving here in 2001. She has been a Leader for all sections during that time, however her passion lies in large scale events. She has been the Event Coordinator for County, Region and National Events and is currently Deputy Camp Leader for WINGS 2020 in Berkshire.

Her district role: Anne coordinates everything to do with the Dursley Fireworks, liaising with the local authorities, promoting the event, sharing plans with the District team and making sure everything goes smoothly on the day. We hope you'll agree, we think she good at organising the event too! It's now in it's fourth year.
