David Walters
Assistant Group Scout Leader (AGSL)






Hi, I’m David, AGSL at 1st Byfleet. I started helping with the Group as a Parent Representative for Beavers, then an Assistant Scout Leader with Puma Troop, then Quartermaster and Assistant Group Scout Leader.

I support the Leaders of all the Sections and help to look after our new Headquarters.

I would encourage everyone, children and adults to get involved in Scouting to gain new skills and experiences and have great fun at the same time.
