Meet the new District Vice President of Birkenhead, Mike Lennox. 
 

Mike started Scouting in 1952 and took out his first warrant in 1958 at the 79th Birkenhead then 2nd Woodchurch and 5th Birkenhead before heading to Arrowe Venture Unit. Further to his Group roles Mike has also volunteered in roles with Birkenhead Gang Show with his brother Graham and Don Coughtire.

 

As Mike travelled around the UK he has had short breaks and volunteered in other Districts and Counties across the UK including the Shetland Isles. In 2012 Mike took on a short term role as GSL in 2nd Birkenhead, 9 years later he was still there and has helped transform the Group into a thriving Scout Group with all 3 sections and a dedicated leadership team. 
 

Mike recently took the decision to step down from 2nd Birkenhead and so Matt, District Commissioner and Joan, District Chair wanted to recognise his invaluable commitment to Scouting and asked Mike to become a Vice President. 
 

Mike Lennox said "I am greatly honoured to take up a Vice Presidentship with the District. I can't believe it! It's a great honour to me. I'm over the moon" 

 

Matt Jones, District Commissioner, says "Mike has been a key Manager across Birkenhead for many years as well as being someone who is always willing to lend an ear to any problems that might arise. I have been incredibly hrateful over my time as DC for Mikes support and dedicated leadership to the 2nd Birkenhead and he is leaving some big shoes to fill for his successor and I am thrilled that Mike has agreed to become a District Vice President from our next AGM. I very much doubt it is thanks enough for his incredible service but I know it's a start,"
